Abstract Digital currency (DC) is gaining public and research attention as an alternative paradigm of currency, its value, and exchange. Because of the growing DC research in the Information Systems (IS) domain, it is necessary to appraise existing DC research coverage and identify areas for future exploration. This article offers an up to date review of IS research on digital currencies. It synthesises the locus and focus of issues, theories, methods, and findings and provides direction for future research. The study uses a systematic literature review method to examine IS articles published between 2010 and 2016. The review identified twenty articles in highly ranked IS journals and conferences. Based on results of our investigation, we chart out end-user, organisation, and systems related future research directions.
