New empirical evidence on cryptocurrencies emerges rapidly, and it is thus necessary to consolidate the knowledge gained and identify the gaps therein. We provide a focused, systematic literature analysis of the objective and perceived risks of investing in cryptocurrencies using 50 papers from both the academic and practice-oriented literature. As an additional contribution, we identify three important and promising research avenues, which we contend should be the focus of future research: (i) subjective perception of risks, (ii) adoption of cryptocurrencies implementing innovation research and (iii) non-standard financial risks.
