There are numerous peer-reviewed journals and periodicals related to almost all fields of study, science, technology, management, arts etc. Until now there were no specific journal for cryptocurrency alone. Most of the research done on the cryptocurrency sector was so far being published in journals related to computer science, information technology, cryptography, economies, finance etc. Not anymore, for the field of cryptocurrency now has its own dedicated journal.
