BLOCKCHAIN AND RISK MANAGEMENTAbstractThe aim of the research is to identify the different concepts of blockchain which helps in easieridentification of the different risks and the issues associated with blockchain technology.Blockchain is an emerging concept and therefore, it is necessary to identify the different risksand the issues associated with the blockhain technology. The research involves an extensiveliterature review that aims in thorough understanding of the different concepts and the structureof blockchain architecture. The data collection and data analysis is an important chapter of thisresearch project since it aims in providing an accurate knowledge about the effectiveness of thedifferent risk mitigation approaches that is identified in the literature review section. Theresearch objective is to identify the different risks and the issues associated with a blockchaintechnology, its system and applications along with the recommendation of the strategy that willhelp in easier management of the risk and different issues associated with the use of blockchain.It is essential to identify the different risks associated with the use of blockchain and itsapplication and the use and adoption of the blockchain technology is expected to increase infuture
