Report Scope & Overview:
The Cryptocurrency Market was valued at USD 1.9 billion in 2021, and is predicted to increase at a CAGR of 7.14 % from 2022 to 2028, to reach USD 3.13 billion.
The term "virtual currency" refers to cryptocurrency. It is a type of money that solely exists in the digital realm and has no central issuing or regulatory body. The transactions are authenticated using blockchain technology. Blockchain is a decentralized system that handles and records transactions across numerous computers. Furthermore, it is a peer-to-peer system that allows users to send and receive payments from anywhere in the globe without relying on banks to authenticate transactions.
The global cryptocurrency market is growing due to an increase in the demand for operational efficiency and transparency in financial payment systems, as well as an increase in demand for remittances in developing countries, improved data security, and a larger market cap. Furthermore, the cryptocurrency market's growth is hampered by high implementation costs and a lack of awareness among people in developing countries. Additionally, rising demand for cryptocurrency among banks and financial institutions, as well as untapped potential in emerging economies, are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for market expansion over the forecast period.
The cryptocurrency market is unregulated at the moment. The lack of laws and the ambiguity around them are now among the key issues preventing cryptocurrency adoption.
Because distributed ledger technology is still in its early stages, it creates a number of challenges for national and international authorities and politicians.
Companies working in the cryptocurrency sector may expect considerable growth prospects in emerging economies (such as India, China, and Brazil) as well as mature ones (such as the United States, Germany, and Japan).
For example, Brazilian crypto firms signed a code of self-regulation in 2020 with the goal of legitimizing and increasing the acceptance of crypto assets in the country.
To profit from cryptocurrencies, end users must overcome specific problems relating to security, privacy, and control.
In both a hub-and-spoke and a distributed database, if a key is compromised, it may be exploited to access the database.
IMPACT OF COVID-19:
The worldwide economy has been severely impacted by the COVID-19 epidemic. As the virus spread over 188 nations, many businesses were forced to close and thousands of people lost their jobs. The virus mostly harmed small enterprises, but it also had an influence on huge organizations. Apple temporarily closed all of its stores outside of China, while Bloomingdale's shuttered all of its 56 locations. Against the backdrop of COVID-19's ambiguity, Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other digital currencies have gotten a lot of attention. For the first time, banks have begun to purchase cryptocurrency. To facilitate B2B cryptocurrency payments between its clients, banks in the United States are developing their own blockchain-based systems, which include digital currencies. PayPal also stated in October 2020 that its clients would be able to buy, sell, and store Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies using their PayPal accounts, allowing them to purchase items from the 26 million PayPal vendors. PayPal intends to allow bitcoin to be used as a financing source by 2021.

Market, By Offering:
The bitcoin idea is built on decentralizing transactional monitoring. Miners (usually users) verify trades done by other users throughout the transaction monitoring process. To validate the transactions, the system requires a lot of computational power. To secure the transactions, the validation step requires the production of hash codes. The miner requires extremely effective and efficient hardware to create a hash code. To put it another way, miners must produce as many hash codes as possible in order to get fresh blocks and solve them. Miners are rewarded for their efforts. Mining rigs come in a variety of designs and sizes. GPUs, central processing units (CPUs), FPGAs, and ASICs are the many types of processors used in the bitcoin hardware sector.
Mining is a crucial step in the production, transmission, and confirmation of cryptocurrency transactions. It assures that the currency is propagated from a payment to a recipient in a stable, secure, and safe manner. Unlike fiat currency, which is controlled and regulated by a centralized body, cryptocurrencies are decentralized and operate on a peer-to-peer basis.

Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.
The 5 steps process:
Step 1: Secondary Research:
Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.
Step 2: Primary Research

This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.
We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.
Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.
This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.
Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.
Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.
Step 3: Data Bank Validation
