Although cryptocurrencies are commonplace as an easy way to pay for expenses, online shopping, investing, trading, and transferring money between parties, it can also be an opportunity for some countries, but the freedom of the "currency code" network, especially " Bitcoin "means that they are not centralized and, in other words, they do not own it, and some of the news released to the people of the world say that there is no control and influence in this area ,he added by saying that “Block Chain” technology is useful in several areas like economy, financing, medical industries and so on.
