It's a lottery really. You can lose all of your money tomorrow. Or you can triple your money in 4 months. Nobody knows what will happen, but there isn't much of a point of calculating how much money you'd make if you invested back in ...

All I know is that when people here start talking about how easy it is to make money by buying bitcoin/flipping properties/buying gold/trading silver... that's a sure sign that the market is in the bubble territory and you need to get out.

Definitely. Life is a lottery.
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character. Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Politics without principle. Your bias suits you.

Hey, even street tacos are a lottery. You might have a tasty meal or you might have nuclear diarrhea.

Crypto isn't the same as traditional fiat currencies. How can we use the same methods to determine a bubble?

Well, all bubbles have the same characteristics, and just because they're in different asset classes doesn't mean you can't compare them. But when talking about bitcoin it's important to separate bitcoin as technology - brilliant, cutting-edge, very useful in other applications ... and actual bitcoins - they're basically limited supply didgeridoos. You can buy them, you can sell them, there's a market for both. It's a limited supply (or so we're told). When you buy bitcoin you don't buy a piece of technology which isn't patentable and can be easily reproduced judging by 1200 other cryptocurrencies on the market. Any govt in the world can come up with their own cryptocurrency tomorrow, they don't need bitcoin for that. You only buy a limited edition Barbie, not the company that makes Barbies.

And since there is no underlying value, the market is driven purely by speculations and emotions. But I'm not saying "you won't be able to make money with it" - after all, if there's emotions driving the market you can take advantage of it and make few shekels from fools who are jumping on the bandwagon. As long as you realize you can be one of them and this is a textbook definition of a bubble phenomena.
