Bitcoin has attracted significant attention from academia and industry and has emerged as a new and rapidly growing research field over the past decade. However, there has been no previous bibliometric analysis of Bitcoin-related publications within business, management, finance, and economics. Consequently, the study conducts a bibliometric analysis of 1109 articles written in English language in the Scopus database, published between years 2020 to 2022, focusing on Bitcoin research within the domains of business, management, finance, and economics. This bibliometric analysis was performed using R and VOSviewer.
The analysis explores publication trends, influential authors/institutions/countries, and significant articles in the field. The results provide valuable insights into the evolution and trends of Bitcoin research and offer guidance for researchers aiming to publish in reputable journals. The future research agenda includes investigating price volatility and risk analysis, exploring market inefficiency and price discovery mechanisms, understanding acceptance factors, studying governance and regulations, and examining business applications. Addressing these areas will contribute to a better understanding of Bitcoin’s dynamics, its impact on financial markets, and its integration into traditional financial systems.
