A 365-degree turn to the monetary system that promises an intangible currency, with a peer to peer (P2P) trust system, without intermediaries and based in a revolutionary technology, Blockchain. The reason of this work is due to the lack of a publication that summarizes and unifies the main contributions that have been made during the last decade. The main objective of this work is the exhaustive literature review of Bitcoin. This study proposes to pursue the understanding of this technology and its environment in a simple, summarized way and based on a large amount of research work, bibliometric analysis, and scientific articles, to unify the studies of this new concept. The variables studied in this work include cryptocurrencies, specifically Bitcoin, its history, its technology and its operation, its legislative framework in the world and in Spain, its operation and application to society, and the possibility of a price bubble we well as its advantages and disadvantages. The main contributions to the literature include both theoretical and methodological aspects, as well as considerations about Bitcoin, their application and behavioral factors. The results provide reasons for professionals to improve their business models in the application of this technology and, in addition, help scientists to take the initiative to continue researching more adequately.
