Abstract: This study assesses the efficiency of Bitcoin market compared to gold, stock and foreign exchange markets. By applying a MF-DFA approach, the study found that the long-memory feature and multifractality of the Bitcoin market was stronger and Bitcoin was therefore more inefficient than the gold, stock and currency markets.
