Internet of Things is widely used in various sectors in recent years, due to its efficiency, scalability, feasibility, etc. Thus, need such type of network infrastructure for reducing the human effort from unwanted work like household chores, information gathers or repeated work, etc. That is possible from the Internet of Things. Internet of Things is a collection of smart nodes that collect the data and produce a result by systematically analyzed them. Therefore it can reduce the dependability from humans and expect the best result in any worst condition. Now the Internet of Things is a rapidly growing industry in the world and also there are lots of vulnerability have occurred in recent years. Thus, need to secure Internet of Things nodes during communicating between each other device as well as saving or processing information, without precaution from the attacks, it cannot safe, sensitive information from the attacker, because enhancing of technology there will be increased computational overhead. Therefore, need security measures like Confidentiality, Integrity, Authentication, Non-repudiation, Availability, etc. in any transactions of IoT devices. And such security measures can provide now the only Blockchain technology. And it can safe from the attacker's intention. Blockchain is a decentralized, distributed ledger technology that overcomes the data’s tamper and provides the availability from its decentralization environment. This technology can use in the IoT environment to protect them from malicious, unauthorized user/node and make it able to take action against them. In this study, introduced the concept of a secure IoT node’s transaction through Blockchain technology.
