Bitcoin is a popular cryptocurrency that records all transactions in an allotted append-handiest public ledger referred to as a blockchain. The security of Bitcoin heavily relies on the motivation-suitable proof-of-work (PoW) founded dispensed consensus protocol, which is run with the aid of the community nodes known as miners. Because of its inception, blockchain technological know-how has proven promising application possibilities. The spectrum of blockchain functions stages from financial, healthcare, automobile, hazard administration, internet of matters (IoT) to public and social offerings. Several reports focal point on utilizing the blockchain information structure in various applications. These vulnerabilities result in the execution of different security threats to the ordinary functionality of Bitcoin. We then examine the feasibility and robustness of the brand new safety solutions. Moreover, we discuss the current anonymity concerns in Bitcoin and the privateness-related threats to Bitcoin customers together with the evaluation of the comprehensive privacy-keeping solutions.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
