This lack of trust situation in the financial sector aggravates further when it comes to cryptocurrency management challenges that are still not critically analyzed. The originality of this paper is the concept of currencies including cryptocurrencies, the concept of the blockchain ecosystem, and the cryptocurrency integration challenges of the existing blockchain in the financial institution. This paper will help the new researchers to work on cryptocurrencies and their integration challenges in the financial system.
