Price discovery of cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin and beyond

Alexander Brauneis and Roland Mestel ()

Economics Letters, 2018, vol. 165, issue C, 58-61

Abstract: Academic research on cryptocurrencies is almost exclusively directed towards Bitcoin. We extend existing literature by performing various tests on efficiency of several cryptocurrencies and additionally link efficiency to measures of liquidity. Cryptocurrencies become less predictable / inefficient as liquidity increases.
