Research topic: Cryptocurrencies - Asset pricing - DeFi

Research interests: Due to the difference between cryptocurrency and traditional assets, some factors specific to cryptocurrency accepted by practitioners have not been considered in previous studies, but these factors should also be attention when we want to analyse its value. My research aims to identify factors which affect its intrinsic value. I will make use of the longer time series which is now available to identify the corresponding factors. What is more, I will also focus on how to management and construction of cryptocurrency portfolios using the factor models.

Supervisors: Dr Viktor Manahov, Dr Daniele Bregantini
