Authors: Ladislav Kristoufek - Czech Academy of Sciences (Czech Republic) [presenting]
Abstract: The drivers of Bitcoin volatility are examined, and possible future developments are discussed, specifically what conditions need to be met for the volatility to decrease. Our instrumental variables analysis implies there needs to be a considerable inflow of small users into the system who are ideally not exchange traders and they do perform small transfers. Increasing exchange volume, on-chain transfers value, and Bitcoin price by themselves increase volatility of the cryptoasset.
