2011 corrected -94%
Thanks, nice chart. I agree that we definitely cannot compare based on dominance now vs then. However I am sceptical when it comes to comparing to the previous bear market.
The previous bear market was the product of a significant rally made in 2013 and I am sceptical or the authenticity of this rally.
If we look at the time in which this rally occurred, we find that it occurred in November-December 2013, where it posted +500% gains in one single month. This all occurred during a time where we have clear data that shows Mt Gox was maliciously operating multiple buying algorithms that could purchase bitcoin essentially for free. Please see https://willyreport.wordpress.com/2014/05/25/the-willy-report-proof-of-massive-fraudulent-trading-activity-at-mt-gox-and-how-it-has-affected-the-price-of-bitcoin/ and view the trade log.
Thus the potential bear market in 2014-15 was merely a return-to-the-mean scenario after an artificial price run, as opposed to the speculative nature of the bubble we experienced in 2017. Thus I assume, that, the ensuing deflation of the bubble in 2018 cannot be compared to 2014-15.
Thanks for the comment Weaves, let me know what you think.
