Abstract

During 2017, a few fortunate investors have made a lot of money very quickly on their investment in crypto-currencies, an asset class that did not exist just eight short years ago. But as with other rapidly evolving assets, that often seem too good to be true, the potential soaring profits of crypto-currencies are offset by the risks of crushing losses. “Investor beware” is the name of the crypto game!

Keywords: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Crypto-currencies, Cryptocurrencies, Blockchain, Hurst Process, Fractal Markets Hypothesis, Efficient Markets Hypothesis
