Blockchain is a new type of cryptographic distributed network transaction accounting system. Blockchain adopts some new security ideas, methods and technologies in its design to meet the real-world security requirements of various types of large-scale network transactions worldwide. In this paper, we discuss the state of art in space based blockchain wireless networks, and provide the future challenges in such scenario, which lead to the future researches in this area.
