I am writing my bachelorthesis on "Is Bitcoin under theoretical and empirical aspects money?".
As you can see I have an econometrics related part in my thesis. I want to look at the classic three money functions i.e. (a) medium of exchange, (b) store of value and (c) unit of account.
For (a) I want to look at the price for (b) I want to look at the 30-day-rolling volatility of the bitcoin price and (c) I have no clue yet maybe try to look at the % of actual consumption payed for in bitcoin.
So for (a) and (b) I can build a model to find out what determines the price and the volatiltiy. My question now is what kind of econometric model should I use? Do you think a simple multiple regression OLS model would be appropriate for a bachelorthesis? Do you think I can get a good grade with this kind of model?
Maybe I should look into time-series models, can you give me any advice here?
