# Explanation

As a comparative measure, the network volatility can be used to see which digital assets have less price risk at a given point in time.

A higher volatility reading means the price is highly variable, while a low reading signals that it is more stable. High volatility is preferred by speculative investors looking to capitalise on short term price moves. Low volatility is preferred by those using a blockchain network for transferring value or settling transactions, e.g. international remittances or commerce.
