Abstract

Employing daily data on ten cryptocurrencies that exhibit the highest market capitalization, we find one instance of cointegration equilibrium in the 2016 ̶ 2018 period. Contrary to earlier studies that report cryptocurrency markets are developing toward market efficiency, our findings suggest that even the most liquid cryptocurrency markets are inefficient.
