In the last decade, scholars assessed the ramifications of the global financial crisis on economic growth, stability, and prosperity. Major studies analyzing the roots of the financial crisis demonstrated the fact that financial stress in advanced economies had been transferring to emerging economies via an integrated financial system. In these studies, it was also highlighted that the transmission of financial stress caused a meltdown in global economic activity. To which extent the massive collapse of financial institutions, regulated monetary, and fiscal policies were linked to this global economic meltdown? Was it possible to prevent this collapse while integrat- ing a more secured digital system without any intervention of the governmental institutions? Could blockchain economics be part of the more stabilized global financial system? Answering these questions is not so easy without knowing more about the components of blockchain technologies and its ability to transform the traditional financial systems. Many scholars today desire to have a deeper focus on this issue with a distinguished interdisciplinary perspective to understand the role of blockchain technologies in this transformational change in financial markets. Undoubtedly, the newest technology in the blockchain ecosystem has been shaping our understanding of traditional business and financial activities. Blockchain tech- nologies are referred to as the decentralized integration of computers and distributed networks. These computers and networks are linked together safely based on the new growing list of records, so-called blocks, connecting the world to the future of business without regulation of any central authority.
