Abstract

The popularity of BitCoin has been reflected by its fluctuating exchange rate in the financial market. Because of its special useful characteristics, it has been adopted by growing amount of enterprises as one of the financial technology tools nowadays. On the contrary, some countries show strong skeptical attitude or even rejection towards it also because of its special characteristics which affect effective governance issues so much. In this paper, we first review the past literature for understanding the origin and nature of BitCoin and then perform detail analysis by dissection of its strengths and weaknesses. Finally, we come up with the security and auditing concerns.
