Bitcoin is volatile! isn’t that right?

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    In this study, we substantiate with financial data collection and analysis the hypothesis regarding the volatility of Bitcoin exchange rate against common currencies. Financial data were collected from July 2010 until April 2014. The raw annualised volatility of Bitcoin is compared to conventional and major exchange rates. The first set of results indicate a high value of annualised volatility for the Bitcoin exchange rate. When the volume of Bitcoin transactions is considered, the volatility of the Bitcoin exchange rate stabilizes significantly.
