A common phrase always ties the crypto market together states, ‘anything is possible in the world of crypto’. A drastic upward swing could well be around the corner and so is an unexpected extreme crash. The ax of crypto swings both ways and can make or break one’s finances.

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 for Bitcoin crashing to $0 in a day.

The researchers used Bitcoin’s historic returns to calculate its risk-neutral disaster probability. The study did not conclude that Bitcoin will never reach $0. They concluded that there is a small percentage chance for Bitcoin to slip to $0 in a day.

The study claimed that Bitcoin’s chances of plummeting to $0 ranged between 0% to 1.3%. You can dive deep into the research conducted by the two Yale University economists here for in-depth knowledge about their study.

Nonetheless, Tsyvinski stated there’s no need to fear or panic as even the Euro has a 0.009% chance of doing the same.

Bitcoin Unlikely to Hit $0

The chances of Bitcoin reaching $0 is highly unlikely as 0% to 1.3% is extremely slim. Though several traditional stock market veterans repeatedly predict that Bitcoin will go to $0 as it has no real intrinsic value, BTC is most likely to dominate the future of finances. First and foremost, Bitcoin is backed by consumer confidence and mathematics which might always keep it afloat.

However, only one scenario can bring Bitcoin to near $0 and that can happen only if the governments around the world come together and ban cryptocurrencies altogether. Nonetheless, the majority of the governments might not take this route as they know they might not be re-elected to power ever again.
