Cryptocurrencies are not yet regulated, but in the future, they may prove useful for fulfilling many purposes. The biggest concern about cryptocurrency is to prepare its mining i.e. cryptocurrency. It consumes a lot of electricity and there is carbon emission. It has a serious impact on the environment.
