Dr Stylianou comments on the volatility of the crypto market amid the virus crisis

The virus pandemic has caused instability in global markets, including cryptoasset markets.

The School of Law’s Associate Professor in Competition Law and Regulation - Dr. Konstantinos Stylianou, appeared on PressTV’s Economic Divide show as the main expert guest to discuss the popularity and volatility of cryptoassets.

Large cryptoassets such as Bitcoin and Ethereum are sometimes seen as safe havens during crises of the mainstream financial system. But external shocks such as the virus pandemic can sink markets across the board.

Dr Stylianou has researched and written on the regulation of cryptoassets and frequently appears in the news to comment on recent developments.
