Large swings in the price of bitcoin and other digital coins aren’t going anywhere, according to Allianz chief economic adviser Mohamed El-Erian.

“I think the volatility will continue,” said El-Erian, speaking on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” Monday morning. “The roller coaster, the up and down. We’ve traded in the 30,000 to 44,000 price range in a week, that’s enormous.”

The price of cryptocurrencies tanked last week, with the bitcoin losing roughly a third of its value in a matter of hours. By Monday, bitcoin had yet to recover all of those losses, trading near $37,000.
