Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
There are currently over 2,000 cryptocurrencies in circulation, and the degree of trade volume in established cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin and ethereum, have steadily risen. Investors and policymakers alike have become interested in these new digital assets and Central Banks around the world have entertained the prospects of releasing Central Bank Cryptocurrencies (CBC). In light of these advancements, this special issue calls on papers that examine the risk and return characteristics of cryptocurrencies and which conduct empirical work on the nature of their price movements. Some topics of interest to this special issue are as follows:
(a) Modelling the price dynamics of cryptocurrencies;
(b) Understanding the risk and return behavior of cryptocurrencies across time;
(c) The impact of bitcoin futures trading on bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies;
(d) Should cryptocurrencies be regulated? Is there a role for such digital coins?
(e) Central banks and digital currencies
