The Blockchain enabled Internet of Things (IoTs) has emerged as an impactful research domain in recent years because of its focused global interest owing to the United Nations’ commitment to achieve 17 Sustainable Development Goals by the year 2030. The Blockchain enabled IoTs has also received considerable attention from industry and academia due to its vast ranged potential applications in many explored fields. The Blockchain enabled IoTs technology has crossed the boundaries of cryptocurrency infrastructure and has become an integrated and distributed Systems of Systems (SoS) networked technology. It is because of a paradigm shift from centralized to the devolved and from static to dynamic networks of networks that this technology has received a wide enthusiasm and attention from researchers. This research is focused on challenges and opportunities of Blockchain enabled IoTs on cloud infrastructure, 5G/6G wireless systems and its computing issues for achieving United Nations’ sustainable development goals by 2030 worldwide. As a use case scenario, we highlight the latest advancements in blockchain enabled IoTs, its various potential applications, future research directions and its infrastructure available in the research readings. Investigation into the important factors considered as technical challenges to the socio-economic development with respect to achieving sustainable development goals are also reviewed. Numerous case studies on Blockchain enabled IoTs in various application areas of the interest falling in SDGs domain have been performed the interpretive case study approach is selected to gather the data and its results, and a protocol is defined to design the structure.
