Abstract. The global economy can be regarded as a complex global adaptive system, which adapts and evolves according to the environment and the behavior of the agents existing on the market. A topic that is topical and can even affect the welfare of a country is the field of cryptocurrencies. Today, the most well-known phenomenon by people in this field is the emergence of bitcoin. Cryptocurrencies or virtual currencies are an emanation of the financial crisis that started in 2008, a crisis that had led to a decline in confidence of traditional bank. In this paper, we discussed the creation of possible speculative bubbles, we presented the virtual currencies, we applied techniques of multidimensional analysis of the data for their analysis, and we evaluated the effects that the appearance of the cryptocurrencies had on the cybernetic economic system in Romania. Also, the paper deals with a section on identifying risks in the field of cryptocurrencies. In the last part of this paper, we focus our attention on the viability of these coins and their future prospects.

Keywords: speculative bubbles, cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, R Studio, cybernetic systems, risk.
