Abstract

Blockchain is a new technology with strong implications for the future of how we exchange information and currency as a globally networked society. It is so new that there is relatively little academic work done on it, but this is changing quickly. For this literature review, we have begun by collecting a sample of primarily peer-reviewed sources, as well as an informative overview of articles from various other channels. Our selection of articles allows us to provide a representative view of three primary topics. First, some of the primary current topics being discussed in regard to blockchain technology. Second, the representative categories of said topics. Third, the potential future of blockchain development along with its impact on society and technology.

Keywords: Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, Bitcoin
