In the article, the President of Baldwin Global Risk Services in the United Kingdom and Faisal Alnahdy, Senior Auditor at the State Audit Institution in Oman, present the security and efficiency advantages and challenges associated with the use of blockchain technology, which has now been implemented by major institutions and banks such as JP Morgan. The article is based on Faisal Alnahdy's MSc dissertation, "Evaluation of risks associated with cryptocurrency: case study on Oman", which he wrote at Glasgow Caledonian University.
