Blockchain technology is employed in mission-critical systems with high reliability requirements. Therefore, rigorous testing is essential for the adoption of this technology. Many techniques have been utilized in testing the trustworthiness and security of blockchain-based systems. These include fuzz testing, model-based testing, search-based testing and concolic testing. Additionally, blockchain technology can be utilized for improving the software and systems testing processes in general. We present a survey on this interplay between blockchain and testing. We categorize studies that apply testing techniques on blockchain-based systems and those studies that benefit from the blockchain technology for improving the testing process. We also propose a reference architecture for utilizing blockchain technology in the context of certification testing.
