INTRODUCTION

Since inception, cryptocurrencies have been described as everything, from the future of money to elaborate Ponzi schemes. Regardless of these diverse opinions, it is undeniable that cryptocurrencies are the “in” thing, especially with IMF and global banks venturing into the world of cryptocurrencies and digital money. According to Gartner, businesses' value-add of blockchain will grow to slightly more than $176 billion by 2025 and will exceed $3.1 trillion by 2030.
