Financial networks of cryptocurrency prices in time‑frequency domains

A new article by University of Pavia has been published in Quality & Quantity

Abstract

 

This paper explores financial networks of cryptocurrency prices in both time and frequency domains. We complement the generalized forecast error variance decomposition method based on a large VAR model with network theory to analyze the dynamic network structure and the shock propagation mechanisms across a set of 40 cryptocurrency prices. Results show that the evolving network topology of spillovers in both time and frequency domains helps towards a more comprehensive understanding of the interactions among cryptocurrencies, and that overall spillovers in the cryptocurrency market have significantly increased in the aftermath of COVID-19. Our findings indicate that a significant portion of these spillovers dissipate in the short-run (1–5 days), highlighting the need to consider the frequency persistence of shocks in the network for effective risk management at different target horizons.
