I am a strong believer in HODL. I expected bitcoin volatility decreases as time goes by, I totally didn't expect such big price change in the past several days.

Is bitcoin volatility here to stay and not decrease?

the market is still very small, and there are still many people who own many bitcoins and there are many people who have lots of money to buy bitcoins, imagine if a billionaire buys bitcoin using any exchange? Imagine if someone who has many bitcoins decides to sell everything at once in an exchange? it will take many years to see the volatility decrease, at least we will not see big pump and dump, I think
I agree with you that it's probably related to the size of the market. When there are more people, there should be a smaller chance that a small group of people can make a difference. So, if there's, say, some information about China banning Bitcoin, some people will do panic selling, but lots of others won't care, and thus the price will not be affected in a significant way. Not everyone believes that the volatility will become less significant, though. I think it can be explained in the following way: the intellect of the mass in inevitably smaller than the intellect of specific members of it, and an event that affects a part of the mass can cause something like a huge chain reaction afterward. In this case, the volatility of Bitcoin might even get worse with time.

Forget about it, volatility of bitcoin is its true nature and will never get out of it.

We just say 'it's stable for now' because of no price motion nevertheless it's volatile.

That wouldnt happen permanently. Im sure bitcoin would decrease after its peak because thats how it works. If it does not do that, it will become less profitable because you cant buy at a low price. Those manipulators are ready to tale the price down right after they reach again its peak.

You should understand the concept of demand and supply so that you will know how volatility works. Volatility moves too fast in cryptocurrency since it is an open market, everyone is allowed to make a trade. So expect that volatility will be here staying forever. All you need to know is how to get a profit during the volatility.

The market is just 10 years old and very young so volatility is still there.

The volatility will decrease in the next years if more and more will use Bitcoin and other  crypto. At this moment, many rich people can manipulate the market because there are not many people who are using it right now.

bitcoin volatility will continue to happen and to expect more stable prices i think it requires massive adoption and thus the possibility of prices can be maintained and reduce the level of volatility that happens
Market fluctuations are part of the crypto market, even though large adoptions occur, fluctuations will certainly there, because that's where prices skyrocket and fall very quickly happen. we don't need to worry about that, all we have to think about is how to make good use of it

I hope you keep your words and do as you say, being a strong believer means you'll bear with bitcoin even at tough times.
Bitcoin has been volatile but it does not affect its growth, still growing although dump many times.
Overall, it's the best coin in crypto so people are investing on it despite its volatility.

Is bitcoin volatility here to stay and not decrease?

I think it will stay forever.

If Bitcoin is volatile all its existence, then it will cancel all the intention of cryptocurrency users to see Bitcoin as a means of payment.  If Bitcoin fluctuates in price as it has lately, the state will always be against it.

It is part of Bitcoin and it would always be there .
The price of Bitcoin would always be unpredictable and so does it's movement,
And there are so many people who have Bitcoin so the volatility would always be there.

It will take a while for bitcoin to eventually achieve some sort of relative stability (compared to other fiats or other assets) because it is a new asset class the number of big players are relatively small. Volatility will eventually drop as adoption grows.

Indeed. And as we all know, volatility is in bitcoin's nature. And its price depends on the demand and supply situation or we can call it adoption. When many people get to know and use bitcoin, its price will rise and will stabilize as  long as it stays that way. But of course, it'll take some time before that stability occurs. So unless it happens, then volatility will always be present.

Is bitcoin volatility here to stay and not decrease?

       Volatility is the weakness of bitcoin of being a global currency but if there's a sudden large  decreases or increases , I think it is not part of volatile character of BTC and there's always a cause of that movements of price , so stability of price is not guaranteed for this time .

After a moment of shrinking, everyone is sure that the bearish moment will come, maybe it can be a little faster than it should. Regarding how easy BTC prices go up or down, I think this makes sense so just relax to respond it. While waiting for BTC price getting better, maybe we should that time to get some alts in this red market.

The shrink was a correction, it's not a bearish trend like since it didn't last.
We called it sudden dump and after that sudden dump, we've see how the price has recover and that is not bearish for me.

Volatility makes smart traders very profitable, imagine bitcoin was once up 10%, and then down more than 10%, if they do the right
decision at that moment, they can sell with profit and buy cheaper than the current price.

I think since 2017 , it have already decreased a lot.

Infact volatility is something which which is important for investors too , for the short term holders it is very important.
Volatility decrease might be very good too ;
  More companies will start accepting cryptocurrencies
  It will be more suited this way to be used as a Currency
  It can attract more people
This volatility is something that is an essential part of Bitcoins, if it's non volatile then it will only be fiat 2.0.

Volatility has a strong correlation with volume, the greater the volume, the more volatility produced. This high volatility is also what is unique to the crypto market compared to the forex market, maybe for people who already understand the crypto market will become a gold field. The greater the volatility, the greater the price fluctuations, this condition is very good for the bullish market because of course the price increase is very fast.

'Volume in science defines as the space occupied'
To know if a certain matter has dense, it has mass and volume.
In correlation in trading, in order for the cryptocurrency to identify either it has strong support, it should have mass and volume. The volatility of bitcoin depends upon the amount of volume a day and number of the mass trading for a specific time. If there is a volatility, there are many traders that coping the bull run effect.

Volatility should be ok for things like cryptocurrency else how do we even know a project is doing well or bad considering that cryptocurrency is more than just a currency?
We just need a safe volatility though, for a  great crypto market.

I am a strong believer in HODL. I expected bitcoin volatility decreases as time goes by, I totally didn't expect such big price change in the past several days.

Is bitcoin volatility here to stay and not decrease?

It should decrease over time. I agree with you what happened last days was strange and on my opinion it was clear market manipulation.  But Bitcoin will never be USD that keeps slowly decrease its value. It will keep going up and down over time.

Bitcoin's volatility is exaggerated due to the unequal distribution of the coins. The theory is that a more distributed coin will decrease volatility, because it helps to shift large amounts of coins from individual <whales> to more individuals. So, if single whales can be reduced, we should see less volatility and a more stable price.

I am not sure if this will ever be the case, because we are on the brink of introducing institutional capital to the Bitcoin market and those fiat whales will buy large amounts of coins and they will become the next whales.  Roll Eyes

This volatile it nature of Bitcoin only makes all the people to talk ok about Bitcoin and do investment over cryptocurrencies. If there is no volatile you will not find this much cryptocurrencies in the market place and no one believe that this cryptocurrency is there have it's values.

I agree, the main reason why people invest in bitcoin is its volatility, if volatility is not present then no one would have invested in cryptocurrencies. Volatility is already tied up with bitcoin or cryptocurrencies so it will really stay no matter what.
"the main reason why people invest in bitcoin is its volatility"
True

"if volatility is not present then no one would have invested in cryptocurrencies"
The opposite is the case.
Most investors, private but particularly institutional ones, are not invested in cryptos precisely because of its volatility.
Think for example pension funds, or sovereigns.
They are prevented to invest in assets volatile like Bitcoin.
That explains the current success of stablecoins.
