From euphoria to panic and self-irony: the rise and fall of Bitcoin in memes with Reddit 

Cryptocurrency owners lose money and laugh at themselves.

Since December 2017, Bitcoin has lost over 80% of its market value. Those who bought the cryptocurrency before approaching the peak 19,650 dollars in the hope of its further growth, in the end were left with nothing.

One of the last frontiers, when it became clear that the currency would no longer grow, was November 2018. Then the rate fell by 50% in less than a month: from 6 to 3 thousand dollars. Against this decline, miners in China even began to hand over their equipment for scrap.

However, the situation looks sad though, but during the rise and fall of the course, the owners of cryptocurrency published memes on Reddit. It turned out that a step-by-step chronology of events can be compiled from pictures, gifs and videos from the subreddit r / bitcoin.

December 2017 – the euphoria and ridicule of those who did not believe in Bitcoin. The sharp rise in the course to 19 thousand dollars, a record in the history of Bitcoin
