The wide application of information technology and internet marketing has created a new chain of economic relations in the industrial and financial sector, the consumers are integrated by the internet area and the economic process has changed and has become unpredictable, outlined the lecturers. The change of needs, desires, tendencies and fashion as well as the unpredictability of circumstances requires economic flexibility for solving and controlling the market problems. The opportunity for online marketing and appearance of virtual currency such as bitcoin tries to replace the traditional ways of payment, pointed out Dr. Stieger and Dr. Unterdorfer.
