Abstract: In this paper we will discuss a hot topic of our decade, cryptocurrency. Firstly, we will assess how currency is defined and works and why the current state of money is not suited to guarantee a safe and stable trajectory in the future. Moreover, we will present the benefits of cryptocurrency in contrast with common forms of currency, along with the dangers that may arise. Lastly, we will construct an artificial neural network model to predict the price trajectory of the most prominent cryptocurrencies up until now, Bitcoin and Ether.
