The widening of its usage area and the increase in the number of users have led to problems related to security and rights violations. Regulations on cyber security, especially in the field of finance, have led to the emergence of new technologies such as Blockchain. Blockchain technology, which came to the fore especially with the use of cryptocurrencies; It is a protocol that allows the data to be shared on the network environment in a distributed manner without the approval of a central authority. This technology protocol has started to be used in many different areas aiming to protect data by providing authorization and identity security. The penetration of technology into every stage of our lives creates the need for privacy. Data on people's personal lives are constantly shared and stored on the internet, either within or outside of their control. Once a data is shared over the internet, it leaves a trace on the system even if it is deleted later. This situation may cause people to demand the right to be forgotten in terms of their changing preferences and desires and their future lives.

In this study, Blockchain technology and the right to be forgotten are explained conceptually, and the examples in the legislation are associated with the right to be forgotten and Blockchain technology
