Abstract

Throughout recent years as well as in the use of cryptocurrencies factors that have been influenced by technologies such as Blockchain. This article investigates the current situation of the so-called cryptocurrencies in the international scene, as well as the acceptance, rejection or indifference position of different nations. Afterwards, the current situation of Colombia and its position with respect to the Cryptocurrencies is evaluated. Followed by this, a meet with a panel of experts is issued in order to provide a series of proposals that they evaluate and based on these a series of contributions regarding the concept of the cryptocurrency that is re-defined. Therefore, proceeding to characterize the actors involved in the transactions carried out with this medium. Finally, a brief recommendation is given to preserve the integrity of the Colombian users and a suggestion to form an interdisciplinary group under the concept of e-government that aims to investigate and observe the potential use of the applications of the technology that surrounds cryptocurrencies and their relationship with e-government.
