Simple answer?because this is volatile currency and at any chance it will go up or down depend on the demand from the people
 who uses this.
Exactly, because we in a bitcoin community who had bitcoin will make bitcoin becomes fluctuate the price because of the demand and supply circulating on the community who holds bitcoin. Just because of the fixed amount of bitcoin, it becomes high volatile price in the market and it is impossible to have stable price. I guess it's already answered of what the reason bitcoin fluctuate against fiat currencies.

It's a store of value assets just like gold or even investment in stock market.

Actually I think that Bitcoin and larger cryptocurrencies to most degree are pretty stable. What you have to remember is that when using fiat as a base to compare to, there will be fluctuation, but that fiat is also fluctuating against other goods. As usage goes up and BTC is constantly traded, than stability will increase, but currencies are constantly in change. Forex trading is based on this idea and is very popular with daily volume of 5 trillion.

Gold is another store of value, but not that unstable. It reached 2000$ recently and was above 1000$ for many years. Those who invested in gold back in 1900 would have made a great choice since it costed only 20$ back then if I'm not wrong. (Although dollar was way more strong than now)

Bitcoin can lose 500$ within one night. Gold can't. Why that?

Volatility of bitcoin is the best feature of it. That's why many people want to invest in bitcoin to earn much bigger than a gold in just one night if they are lucky. But Gold is a safe investment compared to bitcoin that you can earn big but if you don't have knowledge about it you will also loss big.

The reason behind why Bitcoin is so unstable is simple and clear. Bitcoin and all of the other cryptocurrencies are volatile and gold is not. There will always be a possibility for a cryptocurrency to fall or rise sharply. This is the main feature of cryptos.
I agreed that Bitcoin and all of the other crypto were volatile but I think gold as well. However, unlike Crypto, gold is less volatile. What makes Bitcoin volatile is that because it is decentralized meaning no individual or company can totally manipulate the market besides supply and demand.

Bitcoin is a volatile coin. But potential coin. If anyone want to make money by investing on Bitcoin then you need to hold for a long time. You need to wait for price rising.

Is that the opposite? volatility of bitcoin is due to early holders who have the chance to have more bitcoin inside their wallets. They are capable to influenced the market.
That so called whales are more dominant as they really have a good control over the directions of the possible trends. unlike gold where there are many holders that makes it less vulnerable to manipulation.

Yes this is a good question, I will be able to contribute to my knowledge on how bitcoin works, first of all some class of people see bitcoin as a scam because of some scammers do use bitcoin to scam, Such people if they are convinced to buy bitcoin, If they experience any Shaking or decreased in bitcoin markets, they will all think that they thought as much, that this is scam, they will immediately sell off their coins, Now in bitcoin so many people think this way! We also have to not that dollar affect bitcoin market. Bitcoin is for any trade,buy when it low sell when it high,that is only when you understand the flow of market. All this  makes Bitcoin unstable

     The reason for this would probably be the supply and demand of bitcoin and gold. You see, while gold has no definite number of supply but only estimations, bitcoin has a certain number of supply. Just with that alone we can easily understand why. Plus the fact that bitcoin is still young and only has a few investors all over the world compared to gold. With these we can conclude that the price will be far from being less volatile in the coming years.

The Bitcoin could potentially be forming a new downtrend as now the price dropped below $7,000 after hitting a resistance of $7500.

Media reports said that this fall comes amid coronavirus pandemic as findings by new research shows that clear regulation has a direct effect on Bitcoin price volatility.

Bitcoin (BTC) price seen its talk and analysis sharply rise almost making some forget we are amidst a deadly coronavirus pandemic.

With 2020 halving just around 3 weeks to go, its price monitored very closely, owing to the number of both retail and institutional investors betting on the asset.

At the time of reporting, the Bitcoin U.S. dollar derivative was trading at around $6,880 after being unable to push beyond the last two months all-time high.

This is approximately 4% in regards to the day’s opening, whereby the asset was trading slightly above $7,100.

Reports also said that Bitcoin’s new decline trend, which formed after the bulls unable to fix the price above $8,000, confirms that the asset headed towards $4030.

Bitcoin is a cryptographic money in it's earliest stages. Adjustment will require some serious energy. It might turn out to be all the more broadly received, it might deteriorate and continue being a specialty apparatus for specific gatherings, it may even lose clients with time. It additionally may get restricted by greater government, or possibly more governments will manage it and permit to utilize. The unsteady idea of Bitcoin is because of the way that everyone in the bitcoin environment can impact the market esteem so far as they have enough of Bitcoin. Decentralization of the Bitcoin environment is the reason for the insecure idea of Bitcoin.

If we compare bitcoin with gold, we will see an enormous difference in the market capitalization. That's why gold is much more stable than bitcoin. Because to move the market is really hard, we need a big amount of money to move the markets on gold, but with a 'small amount' you can move the bitcoin market.

Yes, Bitcoin is not secure, but there is no money or storage medium that is 100% secure. Cryptocurrency has not existed for so long, it requires development and it will develop: a lot of people and countries see the future in cryptocurrency, and the level of security will also increase.

Bitcoin can lose 500$ within one night. Gold can't. Why that?
Because gold is older than bitcoin. I believe with time bitcoin will be more popular than gold. And the way bitcoin is improving in the areas of exchange show that it will over come gold in profit making.

There are several reasons why bitcoin can lose 500$ in one night and gold can't, one of the reason is because bitcoin has just been around for only a decade now and it hasn't gained the trust from alot of investors, since its still not been accepted by so many governments in the world, some investors see it as a bubble that will get burst anytime soon Cheesy, unlike gold that has been around for so many years and has gained the trust of so many investors around the world, alot of countries even have gold reserves so that's why the price is somewhat stable, but for bitcoin I'm not sure it's gonna be stable for now, maybe after the remaining bitcoins have been mined maybe then the price will finally become stable.

Gold has been in use for ages,  while Bitcoin came up in the 20th century.  And gold is a Fiat currency, its globally accepted as a means of exchange, while most countries don't know what Bitcoin is.

I'd still pick Bitcoin over Gold though.

Gold doesn't have the volatility Bitcoin has, with the recent changes I could take advantage of that and use that time to sell, reinvest, or trade to other cryptocurrencies. But as you said, if you don't have knowledge about it, you will be screwed. We are also taking big risks by investing in Bitcoin, that goes with other investments or assets as well.

Correction - Bitcoin came up in the 21st century! Wink

Bitcoin is volatile because it has no regulation, and all existing exchanges at the moment resemble Wild West! Huge holders can manipulate the price as they want!

I think it's a lot like the stock market.This is the nature of the price increase.So you have to trade inside it.Gold's case is completely different. I think so.As such, it will be very difficult to compare it with Gold.
not familiar on how stock market works but can you explain it ? since you already explained it . how can you say that btc works like a stock or stock market  . im only aware that btc is mainly compare with gold .

i know how gold works and i can agree to those comparisons . you said trade inside it , you mean trade btc inside the stock market ? but both are just seperated .btc has its own market and stocks too  but i remember there was an exchange before , its mainly built for btc and crypto but you can also trade stocks with it .
