Across organisations data exchange is a topic of increasing interest. Blockchain technology is a promising technology for this management problem. Understanding the technology requires an understanding of the vocabulary related to blockchain systems and blockchain technology. The aim of this paper is to develop vocabulary and definitions for blockchain system, blockchain system type, blockchain system functional characteristics, blockchain subtype, blockchain system non-functional characteristics, blockchain system application area and governance of blockchain systems. This research is done by a systematic literature review and a systematic mapping study to identify vocabulary for defining a proposed conceptual framework for blockchain systems. None of the definitions have yet been used. As such, more work has to be done before actual implementations of putting such technology in a real life setting.
