6G network not only explore higher communication rates but also combine with the emerging technologies such as cloud computing,edge computing,artificial intelligence,and big data,and use a new network architecture to achieve wider interconnection and interoperability across network and domains,and provide an intelligent,safe and efficient technical support for industrial Internet of things,smart cities,and intelligent transportation.Blockchain technology as a decentralized,open and transparent distributed ledger technology can provide strong security for 6G.The integration of blockchain technology and 6G network was studied.Firstly,the difference between 5G and 6G network and the challenges of 6G faced were given,and the research of blockchain technology in spectrum management,mobile edge computing and D2D communication was reviewed.Then,the integration of blockchain technology and 6G emerging network was explored.Thus,the technical challenges in terms of blockchain and the cloud-edge-device network,blockchain and federal learning,blockchain-based resource transactions,and lightweight blockchain for edge network were presented.The corresponding solutions were also given.

Key words: blockchain, 6G, data sharing, resource allocation
