Well I know this will be Fark crypto bashing time but institutional investors are starting to get involved (previous investment was largely retail investors) and its real run up probably hasn't even started yet.

Everyone arguing about 'zero use cases' doesn't understand that crypto isn't currently built for high-volume microtransactions and that smart contract logic is in its infancy. It has use cases in insurance, inheritance, microloans, flashloans, internet of things, gaming, and so on. Not to mention the price your local Target pays a credit card company to transact at your everyday grocery store. But the high-volume stuff is coming.

/having said that, Bitcoin is not even a very good cryptocurrency

Meh. Unimpressive. I lived through some pretty awesome decades, a tehcnology in its infancy is a dime a dozen, in real currency.
