Sometimes we touch money with dried blood on it, if these blood contain hep c virsue can it transmit? If we have skin cracks on our hands or minor cuts, or cuts with dried blood(healing process). I am doing a big research about hep c so please help.

In brief: Unlikely

Dried blood would be unlikely to transmit any viruses - the general rule of hepatitis C transmission is 2% from a needle-stick injury from hepatitis C positive blood.
It makes it a very unlikely case of transmission from this casual interaction. You may be aware that there were some cases reported of re-using needles or contaminated inkwells with hepC positive blood.
