Frequently Asked Questions

What is volatility?

Volatility is the measure of how the price of a financial asset varies over a certain period of time. If the volatility of a financial instrument is high then it's value can change drastically within a small period of time in either direction. A highly volatile crypto asset is generally perceived as a high risk investment and and a less volatile coin as less risky. At the same time it is also true that high risk asset produces higher return. For investors volatility represents an important measure of how desirable it is to own a certain stock, based on the investor's appetite for risk and reward. A study by Alan Moreira and Tyler Muir (Yale School of Management) in 2016, showed that "Volatility Managed portfolios that take less risk when volatility is high produce large alphas, substantially increase factor Sharpe ratios, and produce large utility gains for mean variance investors." - which means low-volatility markets can also deliver better returns.

Why should I track volatility of a coin?

You should always track volatility before investing in a coin. No, not because we are telling you to do so, but because:

>> If you are a risk-taker your concentration should be on high volatility coins as they generally produce higher return with an increased risk element. On the contrary if you like to avoid taking risk and would like to concentrate on a steady return, you should always avoid highly volatile markets. We are the first tool that tracks volatility for you and sends you alerts when your selected coins become highly volatile. Volatility Managed Portfolios generally produce more steady returns than unmanaged ones.

>> You don't have to continuously keep an eye on 2000 different charts 24/7 to figure out which coins are going up or down or becoming highly volatile. We provide you with the ranking of more than 2000 coins based on their volatility. You can save hours and easily filter coins to focus on based on your risk and reward appetite, using our 1 hour and 24 hour volatility rankings.

>> You will be able to detect PUMP and DUMP events at a very early stage as we would send you the top 20 most volatile and least volatile coin rankings every 15 minutes. Never miss a PUMP and DUMP event again, no matter whether you want to avoid investing at that moment or want to make profit out of it!

Can tracking volatility let me know when the next Pump or Dump will happen?

NO, no tool can tell you when the next PUMP or DUMP of a certain coin will occur unless you are one of those who are causing the coin to PUMP or DUMP. But you will be able to know which coin is PUMPING or DUMPING at a very early stage if you track volatility of the coin, as in the event of PUMP or DUMP price fluctuates very rapidly resulting in an increased volatility.
