The market development of cryptocurrencies illustrates an institutional change how payments can be released and received without the need of any intermediary or trusted central party to clear virtual transactions. As academia focuses mostly on Bitcoin, the increased money demand within cryptocurrencies, its linkages, the wide range of possible channels to release and receive executed payments (payment patterns) and the wide range of different underlying motivations why cryptocurrencies are… 

Spillovers between cryptocurrencies. Network map of cryptocurrencies

Results show that cryptocurrencies are highly connected to each other and connectedness increases more during shocks, and there exist attractive cryptocurrencies less connected within the network and therefore, less affected by others’ shocks.

Seasonality in Cryptocurrency Markets

Ten years have passed since the emergence of Bitcoin and with it cryptocurrencies as a new class of assets. Now, cryptocurrencies are not uncommon tool of investment and subject of academic research.

Volatility seasonality of Bitcoin prices

To understand what are the prime contributors to the phenomenal price activity in the crypto markets Sapuric and Kokkinaki (2014) analyzed volatility of Bitcoin returns within 4-years long time interval and confirmed Bitcoin’s high activity, but emphasized that traded volume is an important fact which should be taking into account computing the volatility.

Data Analytics for the Cryptocurrencies Behavior

A system for the better understanding of the cryptocurrencies economical behavior against the global market using Data Analytics techniques to build a predictor that uses as inputs said external financial variable to determine if a coin is safe to trade with and if forecasts can be precise by only using this external data.

Followness of Altcoins in the Dominance of Bitcoin: A Phase Analysis

Due to the transparency, simplicity, and blockchain system, cryptocurrencies gained popularity in the modern world. This led to more use of cryptocurrencies for speculation and investment rather than

Data analytics on the behavior of the cryptocurrencies market.

Using Artificial Intelligence, Data Analytics and Machine Learning the goal is to obtain knowledge about how related the fluctuations of the digital currencies with the global economy are, helping the interested user to forecast if it is safe to hold onto these new types of coins, and if so which of the coins are the safest.

Instantaneous Volatility Seasonality of Forex and Bitcoin E xchange R ates in Directional-Change Intrinsic Time

For the first time, it is demonstrated that the laws are among characteristics of the Bitcoin/American-Dollar (BTC/USD) tick-by-tick prices despite the different nature and mechanics of the Forex and cryptocurrency markets.

The Merger of Cryptography and Finance - Do Cryptographic Economic Systems Lead to the Future of Money and Payments?

Why the Bitcoin protocol illustrates the first prototype of a cryptographic economic system, which is organized both autonomously and distributively - without any point of central control or single point of failure.

A User-Friendly Centrally Banked Cryptocurrency

On The Longest Chain Rule and Programmed Self-Destruction of Crypto Currencies

This paper develops a theory of Programmed Self-Destruction of crypto currencies and exhibits examples of 'alt-coins' which validate the theory and for which the process of programmed decline and rapid self-destruction has clearly already started.

Structure and Anonymity of the Bitcoin Transaction Graph

Dynamical effects of which some increase anonymity while others decrease it are found, and several parameters of the Bitcoin transaction graph seem to have become stationary over the last 12–18 months.

Double-spending fast payments in bitcoin

It is shown that, unless appropriate detection techniques are integrated in the current Bitcoin implementation, double-spending attacks on fast payments succeed with overwhelming probability and can be mounted at low cost.

It is shown that the two networks derived from Bitcoin's public transaction history have a non-trivial topological structure, provide complementary views of the Bit coin system and have implications for anonymity.

Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System

This work proposes a solution to the double-spending problem using a peer-to-peer network, where the network timestamps transactions by hashing them into an ongoing chain of hash-based proof-of-work, forming a record that cannot be changed without redoing the proof- of-work.
