Abstract

Following the systematic review and bibliometric analysis of current literature, this paper attempts to investigate whether the wealth generated through cryptocurrency trading can assist in attaining United Nation's (UN) Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 7, affordable and clean energy and UN SDG 13 related to climate action. The critical analysis of literature indicates a growing interest in cryptocurrency, the UN's SDGs and the negative effect of crypto mining on the use of enormous energy. However, there is a clear gap in the literature focusing on the possibility of using the wealth generated through cryptocurrency trading in financing environmentally friendly projects and attaining the UN's SDG 7 and SDG 13. The findings and the future research direction of this study aim to expand the academic literature related to SDG 7 and SDG 13 and the relationship between cryptocurrency and sustainability even during the uncertain period. This study provides evidence about the theoretical models that can be applied in the discussion of the complex relationship between cryptocurrency, clean energy and climate action. Our findings will provide policymakers in identifying ways to convert the cryptocurrency generated wealth in attaining sustainable socio-economic goals in the future.
