Where to now, for bitcoin and friends?

Here are two price charts of bitcoin, in the last five years.

Both are the exact same data, but the chart on the left has a linear y-axis, while the chart on the right is on a log scale.

Log scales show all percentage gains equally, as the scale grows exponentially. 1, 10, 100, 1000, 10,000… 100,000?

Log scales are useful when looking at longer term charts as they smooth out the effect of compounding.

10,000 to 20,000 is the same as 10 to 20, but when both moves are in the same chart on a linear scale, the former dwarfs the latter.

Bitcoin enthusiasts therefore regularly use log charts as they are less visually jarring to reasonable people.

The chart on the left looks like a bubble.

On the right, not so much.

Anyway, with bitcoin surpassing $50k (or £35k), we put together an impromptu crypto discussion for you.

Joined by two men far more enlightened in the “dark side of the force” than I, it was a very enlightening discussion, with my gentle scepticism and Boaz Shoshan’s alt-expertise meeting Sam Volkering’s unmatched depth of knowledge and insight on the broader crypto world.

We discuss whether bitcoin is a threat to governments and will be regulated, or an opportunity for those with the foresight to embrace this incredible new technology.

We look at the short-term bull run, and wonder where our focus should be as investors.

And guided by Boaz and Sam (and definitely not me!), we delved into the hottest, most exciting, emerging corners of the digital asset market.

Just over six months after our Southbank Crypto Summit, where I interviewed some of the biggest names in crypto, this is a great catch-up on where we’ve come since then, and where we’re going. Just click below to listen.

Enjoy!

All the best,

    I am none the wiser as to the security of holding Bitcoin. I have flirted with the idea in the past but ever since Hargreaves Lansdown decided against allowing clients to trade in it I have been too afraid to do so. What is your opinion of investing in Greyscale Bitcoin Trust where hopefully they know what they are doing .Question is are they bullet proof against internal fraud?

    I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours lately, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is lovely price enough for me. In my view, if all website
    owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the net
    might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  7. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just
    sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger
    but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my
    iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 25
    foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it
    with someone!

    Link exchange is nothing else however it is simply placing the other person’s web site link on your page at suitable place and other
    person will also do similar in favor of you.
