Probably for about a decade, Blockchain technology (BCT) has prompted significant attention around the world. Since the technology was coined, the focus of the researcher switched to investigate the technology's insights. Second, Nakamoto invented the digital currency or cryptocurrency concept. The foundation of these cryptocurrencies is decentralised networks and the blockchain technology behind these currencies. While several investigation for blockchain on the security and privacy concerns have been performed, there is still a lack of systematic review on the safety and security of the blockchain technology. Here, with regard to various developments and applications, the security, confidentiality and the privacy of the blockchain along with its effects have been addressed.
