The prerequisites for the study are the widespread use of blockchain technology in various sectors of human life support where its application is an opportunity to repel cyber threats the forms of manifestation of which will only increase in the age of new technologies. The spread of cyber threats necessitates a set of measures aimed not only at identifying and combating them but also at active working to prevent their spread. The study aims to comprehensively study the use of blockchain technology in countering cyber threats. The research methods are as follows: a reasonable combination of the general scientific dialectical method with legal positivism; social relations and phenomena and their interaction with scientific categories in dialectical unity; consideration of a separate process based on comparative legal positivism; scientific methods of analysis and synthesis, induction and deduction. Results and novelty: today the creation and functioning of security systems, given the multiple nature of the factors of influence on electronic and telecommunication systems, should be complex; local attempts to counter cybercrime give short-term and ineffective results. Arguments are presented for the fact that today blockchain technology is one of the most modern means of countering cybercrime. This is due to the fact that it has a significant period of operation which allows conclusions to be drawn about its functionality and effectiveness, the availability of proven material and technical means and technologies for its implementation in the social sphere, as well as the possibility of its further development and improvement in relation to countering cyber threats in the conditions and vulnerabilities of the blockchain.
