    Abstract Complying with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) poses a a significant challenge for blockchain technology and its applications. The immutability, tamperproof nature, and decentralized structure of blockchains clash with privacy, data collection, and processing requirements outlined in the GDPR. This paper proposes critical insights into existing approaches and solutions for aligning GDPR compliance with blockchain technology. Moreover, it presents an alternative perspective that addresses the regulatory grey areas but also advocates for the need to cultivate flexibility within regulation and policy frameworks. By embracing this paradigm shift, the full potential of blockchain technology can be unleashed, fostering innovation and paving the way for transformative blockchain applications.
