This picture simplifies the theorical stages of a bubble:
The funny thing is that depending of the message the newspaper/blog/author wants to sell to you, you will find a different draw.
I have seen examples where:
- Tulip bubble is bigger than bitcoin bubble and viceversa.
- Etherium bubble is bigger that bitcoin bubble.
- Bitcoin rise and fall just done in 1 year (c’mon guys bitcoin started before 2017!!)
what you can never find is how the draw was done, so you can compare the figures properly.
