This paper presents a Context-Based Blockchain Platform Definition and Analysis Methodology (MetaBlockX) to analyse and identify the best blockchain platform to specific context. Nowadays the number of existing platforms is enormous, in this way, assessing and identifying which best suits to context and service needs is a great challenge. In addition, each use case has its specifics, which can vary from prophecy in a certain programming language or need to keep data private, or even response time and delay to process the data. In this way a holistic and well-documented analysis is required to identify such a blockchain development platform that is proposed at this paper.
