As a result of them, it was determined that the Ecuadorian population does not have the necessary knowledge to be able to start using cryptocurrencies on a daily basis, and that users of the financial system are accustomed to traditional financial culture, so it would require a change and update at the technological level as well. The proposal contains information on the most used cryptocurrencies and the suggestion of which would be the best cryptocurrency to adopt when the society was ready for it, with the necessary reasons and justifications on the decision taken. Therefore, the present research work may serve as a foundation for possible future research to be carried out further so that this transition can be developed in a successful manner and at the right time.
