  Bubble or not, I won't comment, but a fact that's missed by a lot of people is that bubbles don’t burst overnight.  Before bursting in the steady state, bubbles go through a transient phase, when they grow and lot of people make a lot of money. Quite often, the transient phase can last years if not a decade. For example, the subprime mortgage bubble began in the early 2000s and lasted four to five years before it burst and caused the Great Financial Crisis in 2007-8. While all bubbles burst at steady state, they end badly only for the people who’re caught holding the parcel when the music stops at the end. For many others who make money by passing the parcel around while the music kept playing for years, bubbles prove to be lucrative. That’s why, even though so many bubbles have burst in the past, that has never stopped new bubbles from forming in the future. Pundits have been predicting that the startup valuation bubble will burst next year for the last 10 years. But it hasn’t burst yet. If anything, it has only grown.

The Bitcoin bull run: is it different this time?

  Added to this, we will see new applications utilising Bitcoin e.g. Zebedee in the computer gaming space which will increase demand.
