Hi, so I'm doing an EPQ on cryptocurrencies titled; What Are Cryptocurrencies; Is It All a Bubble or The Future of Economics?

I was wondering if anyone could give me pointers on what to talk about and what to include as that would be very helpful.
I've already talked about money laundering and how the anonymity of bitcoin and the likes allows for more criminal activity, I've also mentioned governmental crisis' and economic power at stake. Anything more will help. Thanks!

Dont do an epq n things you arent interested in and havent done the research for.

You need to read and do some initial research to gather all that basic information.

be warned an EPQ should not just contain things i can read in a textbook. You need an essay title that shows you have researched, analysed issues and evaluated the situation. Its your original thought they want, so dont overdo the basic information. They dont want a textbook.

Yeah, I genuinely find cryptocurrencies, being someone who has invested in such mediums before. I reached a bit of a mind wall because I couldn't think of what more to write about. I made my title a more specific question; whether cryptocurrencies are a bubble.

Firstly, thank you.
Yeah, I realised it wasn't really a question so I changed it a little bit, I updated the thread post, take a look if you want and feel free to criticise.

Thank you for the ideas, the idea of sustainability is definitely one I'll discuss. Since my original post, I have updated the question, feel free to give any pointers and criticise, appreciated

You have to be sure you have 5000 words worth. You are going along the right lines.

I think its the right idea if you think you could write critically about it. Im not sure about the whole is it all a bubble bit but it might be fine ask your supervisor; I would have just put
what are cryptocurrencies and are they the future of economics
