Connectedness between Defi, Cryptocurrency, Stock, and Safe-Haven Assets
16 Pages Posted: 24 Nov 2022
This paper examines return spillovers within and between different DeFi, cryptocurrency, stock and safe-haven assets. The results show that DeFi and cryptocurrency asset markets exhibit strong within-market and between-market return spillovers, that stock and safe-haven markets show weak connectedness, and that safe-haven assets are minor receivers and transmitters of between-market spillover effects. The connectedness between markets is time varying and reveals structural changes in early 2020. Furthermore, we document that financial conditions shape the dynamics of return spillover effects between markets.
