In this paper, we analyze the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on the information flow among the main cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, and Litecoin) and those of the fear index (VIX), Gold price, and the US equity market (S&P500). We use the transfer entropy measure to determine the information flow by allowing for nonlinear dynamics and extreme tail values in the series. Our results indicate that information flow and sharing have changed during the COVID-19 pandemic with the following main findings: i) cryptocurrencies show more correlation with VIX, Gold, and the US equity markets during the COVID-19 period; ii) Gold and VIX maintain their position as safe hedging tools against the pandemic; iii) during COVID-19, S&P500 is the dominant flow transmitter to the four cryptocurrencies, and iv) Ripple plays the dominant role of information flow to VIX, Gold, and S&P500.
