This paper has reviewed the blockchain domain that suits with the current Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) uses cryptographic method blockchain. The implementation of this new cryptographic method in Industry 4.0 is currently being used widely as it eases the process of financial transaction and other process that have been as issue related with cyber security. The collection of review papers shows that the blockchain technology has high potential to grow wider not just in financial technology services and manufacturing industry but also in public sector, health care and even media industry. The papers elaborate how the blockchain able to be applied in different fields of technology in order make a secure and more protected services without entrusted the third party to avoid vulnerability to be attacked and misused. Nevertheless, the applications of the blockchain in various field helps in making the industry revolution.
