We add to the literature on Bitcoin by studying the market efficiency of Bitcoin. Through a battery of robust tests, evidence reveals that returns are significantly inefficient over our full sample, but when we split our sample.
The literature on Bitcoin was initially dominated by studies on the safety, ethical and legal aspects of Bitcoin, although recent literature has examined Bitcoin from an economic viewpoint. Cheah and Fry (2015) argue that if Bitcoin were a true unit or account, or a form of store of value, it would not display such volatility expressed by bubbles and crashes Downloadable (with restrictions)! Urquhart (2016) investigated the market efficiency of Bitcoin by means of five different tests on Bitcoin returns. It was concluded that the Bitcoin returns do not satisfy the efficient market hypothesis. We show here that a simple power transformation of the Bitcoin returns do satisfy the hypothesis through the use of eight different tests The data are as in Urquhart (2016), that is, daily closing prices for Bitcoin in USD from the 1st of August 2010 to 31st of July 2016.A plot of the data is shown in Fig. 1 in Urquhart (2016).As in Urquhart (2016), we consider data from three periods: the full period from the 1st of August 2010 to 31st of July 2016; the subsample period from the 1st of August 2010 to 31st of July 2013; the.

We employ fractional integration approach in our analysis of persistence while a more recent fractional cointegration technique in VAR set-up, proposed by Johansen and co-authors is used to investigate dependency of the paired variables . We contribute to the relative fresh body of empirical research on the informational market efficiency of cryptomarkets by investigating the weak-form efficiency of the top-five cryptocurrencies This paper investigates both market efficiency and volatility persistence in 12 cryptocurrencies during pre-crash and post-crash periods. We were motivated by the erroneous belief of some authors that driving currency, Bitcoin is inefficient. By considering robust fractional integration methods in linear and nonlinear set up, we found that markets of Bitcoin and most altcoins considered in our. This paper investigates the dynamic relationship between market efficiency, liquidity, and multifractality of Bitcoin. We find that before 2013 liquidity is low and the Hurst exponent is less than 0.5, indicating that the Bitcoin time series is anti-persistent. After 2013, as liquidity increased, the Hurst exponent rose to approximately 0.5, improving market efficiency Urquhart, A. (2016). The inefficiency of Bitcoin. Economics Letters, 148, 80-82.

Bitcoin has the largest share in the total capitalization of cryptocurrency markets currently reaching above 70 billion USD. In this work we focus on the price of Bitcoin in terms of standard currencies and their volatility over the last five years. The average day-to-day return throughout this period is 0.328%, amounting in exponential growth from 6 USD to over 4,000 USD per 1 BTC at present This study results against the study of Ciaian et al.

2 volatility.2 Interestingly, some other studies focus on Bitcoin volatility while considering exogenous macro-economic and financial variables such as equity indices (Dyhrberg, 2016), equity market volatility (Bouri et al., 2017a, Charfeddine & Maouchi, 2019), currencies (Dyhrberg, 2016), and commodities such as gold (Dyhrberg, 2016) The purpose of this article is to provide some insights on the true nature of bitcoin and to study empirically its performance by using robust models, widely used in the academic literature. Previous studies assess performance with simple measures such as the Sharpe ratio. Such measures are insufficient because they do not take into account the bitcoin's specificities, such as the.

The Bitcoin market becomes the focus of the economic market since its birth, and it has attracted wide attention from both academia and industry. Due to the absence of regulations in the Bitcoin market, it may be easier to bring some kinds of illegal behaviors. Thus, it raises an interesting question: Is there abnormity or illegal behavior in Bitcoin platforms 1 Introduction. Bitcoin, advocated by Satoshi Nakamoto , was launched in 2009 as the first decentralized cryptocurrency.Its system is based on a peer-to-peer network. Whilst many other cryptocurrencies have been created since its launch, and the cryptocurrency market has grown rapidly, Bitcoin remains the dominant cryptocurrency in terms of market capitalization Past literatures have not studied the impact of real-world events or information on the return and volatility of virtual currencies, particularly on the COVID-19 event, day-of-the-week effect, daily high-low price spreads and information flow rate. The study uses the ARMA-GARCH model to capture Bitcoin's return and conditional volatility, and explores the impact of information flow rate on.
1 Money Creation and Distributed Ledger Technology: Bitcoin. The main reason for proposing a distributed ledger payment system with Bitcoin as an alternative currency is the disenchantment of Nakamoto (2008) with the banking system for money creation (Porter & Rousse, 2016).Not coincidentally, the new system was launched in the midst of the Global Financial Crisis, in 2009 COMPLEXITY Complexity 1099-0526 1076-2787 Hindawi 10.1155/2018/8691420 8691420 Complexity 1099-0526 1076-2787 Hindawi 10.1155/2018/8691420 869142 The study investigates herding behavior in cryptocurrencies in different situations. This study employs daily returns of major cryptocurrencies listed in CCI30 index and sub-major cryptocurrencies and major stock returns listed in Dow-Jones Industrial Average Index, from 2015 to 2018. Quantile regression method is employed to test the herding effect in market asymmetries, inter-dependency and. This study examines the predictability of three major cryptocurrencies—bitcoin, ethereum, and litecoin—and the profitability of trading strategies devised upon machine learning techniques (e.g., linear models, random forests, and support vector machines). The models are validated in a period characterized by unprecedented turmoil and tested in a period of bear markets, allowing the.
