there are like there are when you hold gold for a long term, i see no difference here, usually those company don't hold anything they just dump to the ground every bitcoin penny they receive from their customers

also this apply to everything, to banks, stocks and every other categories, everything has risky not only because it's volatile...

Hello Everybody !

I am a French Student in a Business School, and  currently working on BitCoin

On a last topic, I asked if it is possible to monitor or at least reduce the price volatility of BTC, but it seems not to be  the case (or in a very hard way so)

Now I have another question: are there ways to reduce / or at least to limit the risks for a company when a sudden fall in price happens ?
Like a financial package, or baskets of stocks ...

Thanks for your answer !

If you have an investment, a huge investment then you are troubled by the volatility of bitcoins then the most or the best thing to do is to diversify. I suggest that fifty percent of your capital goes to bitcoin and then the remaining 50% just stick to US dollars more . Then place thirty percent of your bitcoins to other coins like ethereum, monero and others. The purpose of your dollar is when the price of bitcoin becomes lower then dont sell your bitcoin but use your remaining dollars to buy more bitcoins.
Great strategy,I like how you explained it,the best way to reduce risk actually is knowledge,so if you have the knowledge what to do and how to regulate your different investments everything will fall into place,don't put it all in BTC-make sure you have other areas where you put your cash

Bitcoin is totally independent currency, there is no higher power behind it which will stabilize it - like we are used to with national currencies.
The only possible way for bitcoin to be less volatile to be used by more people, and spread coins distribution.
With higher market cap a single BTC trade will have a lesser effect on the price, it is the only real way.

The best way to reduce risk would be to diversify into the top 10 to 20 crypto coins based on Market Capitalization. You could go for 15 to 30% in bitcoin and then diversify into other cryptos such as ETH, Dash, ETC, LTC, XMR, ZCASH, XRP, etc. Here is a site that would help find the top coins based on Market Capitalization:  www.coinmarketcap.com

Bitcoins price is Rising and Falling, and it is normal when we are talking about bitcoin. So, the risk that you want to avoid or limit the decreasing of bitcoins price is not possible to limit or something. Bitcoins price depends on its investors, users, and its users population, the bigger the population, the bigger the price might increase. All you have to do is this situation is to be ready and accept the fact that in this world, there would be always increasing and decreasing, accepting it and facing the fact is more better than to fight it.

What is this hypothetical company of your's meant to do with its bitcoin btw? Is the business totally about bitcoin or it's planning to convert its fund to bitcoin and use that for operating the business? Regardless, it helps if it will diversify its investments and fund. If btc is meant for operation maybe just convert part of its operating budget into bitcoin and only use it for where it's really needed (for example, paying freelancers working abroad). If btc is the actual investment it might help to convert some of it into other cryptos. Sure the price gain may not be as high as btc but the price fluctuations wouldn't be as probably drastic.

If you can't keep bitcoin in exchanger than you can't just buy sell bitcoin whenever market moves significantly.  But if you can diversify your investment in at least top 5 alts you will be in pretty much safe place because alt and bitcoin price used to move in opposite direction.

Nobody knows when that can happen so probably not. Rhe only thing you can do is exchange BTC to USD instantly with every transaction you make, so that the profit doesn't change. For example you buy something for $5 (around 0.005BTC) and sell it for $15 (around 0.015BTC). Then exchange it instantly to USD so your profit won't go down.

Usually the companies that starts accepting bitcoin on their business
make deal with https://bitpay.com/ this service will convert automaticly to fiat money
when there are payment use bitcoin, I think this way is good to reduce risk
 because of fall in price for companies.

Making an agreement doesn't make the business risk free. Bitpay is just a support system which just gets bitcoin from the people and pay to the companies in fiat on basis of small commissioning in respect to the price variation. So based on the price at the time of purchase fiat will be transferred to the trader.

I hope again it is wrong step because exchanging btc to usd is the best option. Even though choose five 5 best altcoin, suddenly the price of altcoin reduces ultimately it will leads to loss, so better it a wise decision to convert them to USD.

Bitcoin nature is a risk in itself , companies has no control in the  price votality since its inevitable , to recover from certain price drop what you have to do is to HOLD you bitcoin until it reach your desired amount ! It already happen many times and it will happen again so when you the price is dropping there is no other way but to hold until it rise up again !

It is true that holding bitcoin for long term will certainly give you profit but if you want to exit in middle of the crash than there is no choice than taking the losses and leave. Holding is also not option always because if you need money you need it right now and you don't have any other choice than selling your bitcoin cheaper. Best option to limit this types of loss is to check bitcoin price and news daily and make necessary steps as per the situation.

Bitcoin has always been a risk since the creation of it , It already had risk if it will succed or not ! and bitcoin users has been living in risk for how many years now now but i am proud to say That Bitcoin has never let us down in every price drops It will soon come back on its price ! don't use Bitcoin if you don't like risks! there is a very plenty alternative in bitcoins that will reduce risk so better try that out

Even if bitcoins has a big value I think that dealing with it is a risk because we musn't forget that it's a virtual money so if you get problems, you can lose everything in a sec.

The best way to reduce risk would be to diversify into the top 10 to 20 crypto coins based on Market Capitalization. You could go for 15 to 30% in bitcoin and then diversify into other cryptos such as ETH, Dash, ETC, LTC, XMR, ZCASH, XRP, etc. Here is a site that would help find the top coins based on Market Capitalization:  www.coinmarketcap.com

I doubt that diversification into other Alt coins will reduce the volatility of Bitcoin? It would actually add to the volatility if people jump in and out

of Alt coins and then back to Bitcoin. The best solution for volatility will be to distribute more coins to more people. You will just increase the risk

by investing in pump n dump Alt coins.  Roll Eyes
