Blockchain technology has received extensive attention recently, but still a large of technical challenges such as scalability and security. This paper helps to find where recent studies have been focused on and provides a taxonomy of common programming pitfalls which may lead to vulnerabilities detection methods which will help to specify a future research. The study extracted 292 papers, most of which were found in IEEE, ACM and ScienceDirect Digital Libraries. After a detailed review process only 29 publications were considered based on defined inclusion and exclusion criteria.

Key words:
