Blockchain technology, initially devoted to power the bitcoin is growingly proving its applicability in many other usages. At the same time, the recent definitions of open innovation describes it as an ‘across boundaries’ process that distributed reliable solutions backed by blockchain technologies and derivatives are meaningful to. There is such a complex web of archaic processes, legacy systems, and misaligned incentives intra- and inter- company within the value chain of an industry, and extensively to open innovation, that if you stand any chance of innovating it, you really need the ability to orchestrate and move multiple stakeholders, in multiple organizations, at the same time, for the right reasons, in a non-threatening, trustable, and efficient way.

Moreover, the distributed nature of open innovation meets the distributed nature of the blockchain technology. This is especially true for the open innovation platforms, because they show limitations that demand reinvention on the basis of renewed confidence and expectancies. With this perspective, their synergies with blockchain technological approaches are worth of being surveyed in this paper, and their future usages forecasted.
