Blockchain:  The blockchain technology has been enabled the future of the financial Institutions. This technology has marketed up its worth in the current world and also this technology is accepted all over the world in the field of financial institutions. Also, the blockchain technology is run on a large-scale in the fields of mining and trading of the blockchain and Bitcoin tokens that is another form of the crypto-currency.

Keeping aside the facts that the crypto-currency is an aid for the development of the Nation, there are multiple scenarios where the crypto-currencies were misused and led to a state of illegal in the minds of the Government. Despite being warned and notified by the different players of the bitcoins, many people still believe in the Ponzi schemes running in the market.

Any technology can be misled to the people, hence the government and the financial institutions play a vital role in organizing and iterating things to make the things run on the expected scale.

But certainly, there are some evils coming along with the good about the technology and technology promoters, where the government has taken a step ahead to take a deeper look into the issue before making the final decision on legal and illegal actions. There are some petitions created by the government to reconsider the crypto-money concept.
