In the framework of the third Chapter analyzes 17 top cryptocurrencies by market capitalization according to coinmarketcap portal. The following uses the PSY method to determine the financial bubbles for each cryptocurrency. After that, the log-periodic law of force (LPPL) model is used to model the asset bubble in the cryptocurrency market in 2017, and the future dynamics of this bubble for each of the cryptocurrencies is predicted.
