International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), Vol. 92, No. 4, 2023

Abstract: The interaction between the increased complexity of information management applications and the demand for those applications has not been completely understood. Still, it is essential to researchers in business and information management, given the intense focus on improving efficiency and profitability in the future. In the last few years, some of the main information management applications and events that have increased the complexity of information technology processes include the mining of cryptocurrencies. With the growth of new business transactions using cryptocurrencies and the enormous number of algorithms used by miners to mine cryptocurrencies, the complexity of processes and network congestion has become a factor to consider in the future. While most of the studies related to this topic have focused on the technical side of the mining of cryptocurrencies, this study focuses on the evolution of complexity in information management processes and looks into the future profitability of cryptocurrencies.
