Abstract

Since the inception of cryptocurrencies, an increasing number of financial institutions are getting involved in cryptocurrency trading. It is therefore important to summarise existing research papers and results on cryptocurrency trading. This paper provides a comprehensive survey of cryptocurrency trading research, by covering 118 research papers on various aspects of cryptocurrency trading (e.g.,cryptocurrency trading systems, bubble and extreme condition, prediction of volatility and return,crypto-assets portfolio construction and crypto-assets, technical trading and others). This paper also analyses datasets, research trends and distribution among research objects (contents/properties) and technologies, concluding with promising opportunities in cryptocurrency trading.
