Cryptocurrencies neither have intrinsic value, nor do they offer a final promised payment or any dividends. Moreover, cryptocurrencies today do not broadly serve as legal tender or as a common and official means of exchange. However, cryptocurrencies are increasingly being used by private payment services and there is an increasing number of institutional investors. At the same time, there is a debate about the abuse of cryptocurrencies such as money laundering.

This special issue of Studies in Economics and Finance will focus on issues surrounding Cryptocurrencies to better understand the theoretical and practical elements of cryptocurrencies and their implication on the modern financial environment. 

We welcome submissions to this special issue. Topics covered include (but are not limited to):

  • Directional volatility spillover of cryptocurrencies
  • Financial bubbles
  • Financial regulation of cryptocurrencies
  • Risk and portfolio management applications
  • Stock-to-Flow model for Bitcoin
  • Volatility modelling and forecasting
  • Literature review on cryptocurrencies

Deadline and Submission Details
