Virtual communities’ emergence and innovative technologies bring up new types of accounting and
transaction methods. These methods go beyond the existing economics knowledge and current legal
solutions. Virtual societies develop and share their payment medium for goods and services exchange. The

the virus’s spread. Cryptocurrencies bridge the loopholes left by the traditional currency in sorting crises like
the Corona Virus pandemic. However, cryptocurrency brings up legal controversies that users are exposed
to economic and legal risks.
