Bitcoin, the most popular cryptocurrency, was invented in 2009 by a person or people using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. This research will serve as a point of reference for people who are either already using cryptocurrencies or those that are in the process of considering them. The first objective will be looking at how cryptocurrencies have evolved from what the original inventors intended to what they are now in 2021. Secondly, to identify how the increase in the use of cryptocurrencies has influenced the monetary policy guidelines and other regulations in Australia. Finally, looking at identifying the characteristics of cryptocurrency users and non-users in Australia and what they regard as barriers to their full adoption of cryptocurrencies.
