Abstract:The purpose of this paper is to discuss whether it is possible to reconcile blockchain with the requirements of article 17 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the right to erasure. This paper includes a literature research on the different technical and governance approaches to become compliant with the GDPR. The results of this literature research are compared with experiences in the work field. This work will identify the approaches, evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the approaches and give guidelines on how blockchain can be used compliant with the GDPR. These guidelines can help to manage data and use blockchain technology in a correct manner. The guidelines are meant for the design of new blockchain driven solutions and will thereby not address challenges for existing blockchain applications.
