Abstract: The study objectives implementation of smart contract technology and its impact on individual, environmental and organizational factors, particularly considering the moderating effect of organizational culture. Consequently, to fill this research gap, this study extends the concepts of implementation of smart contract technology by investigating an original conceptual framework. This conceptual framework is subjected to empirical testing, implemented through 361 employees who met the population inclusion criteria set forth in this study in gas and oil companies in Iraq.
