In this paper we survey a number of interesting applications of blockchain technology not relatedto cryptocurrencies. As a matter of fact, after an initial period of application to cryptocurrencies andto the financial world, blockchain technology has been successfully exploited in many other differentscenarios, where its unique features allowed the definition of innovative and sometimes disruptivesolutions. In particular, this paper takes into account the following application scenarios: end-to-endverifiable electronic voting, healthcare records management, identity management systems, accesscontrol systems, decentralized notary (with a focus on intellectual property protection) and supplychain management. For each of these, we firstly analyse the problem, the related requirements andthe advantages the adoption of blockchain technology might bring. Then, we present a number ofrelevant solutions proposed in the literature both by academia and companies.
