Five INSANELY bullish charts for bitcoin. πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€ $BTC #bitcoin

1/ Bitcoin looks nothing like the Tulip Mania or South Sea Company bubbles, which only lasted an illiquid and brief 3 years.

3/ Bitcoin dominates the best performing tech stocks in returns over the past decade, even when giving tech companies a 4 year head start. πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯
