Two Yale University economists- Yukun Liu and Aleh Tsyvinski, published a report in 2018 titled ‘Risks and Returns of Cryptocurrency’. The economists examined possible scenarios of Bitcoin crashing to $0 in a day. The Yale researchers used Bitcoin’s historic returns to calculate its risk-neutral disaster probability.

The good news is that the study concluded that Bitcoin is unlikely to crash to $0 anytime in the near future. However, the study states that there’s a very slim chance for Bitcoin to actually fall to $0.

The research claimed that Bitcoin’s chances of plummeting to $0 ranged between 0% to 1.3%. Nonetheless, Tsyvinski stated there’s no need to panic as even the Euro has a 0.009% chance of falling to $0.

Therefore, Bitcoin plummeting to $0 is highly unlikely and a 100% crash might never occur anytime soon. Read here to dive deep into the research conducted by the two Yale University economists for in-depth knowledge about their study.
