How are Bitcoins like (or not like) Tulips?Submitted by DesertLiberty on Mon, 11/18/2013 - 14:57
Would someone please explain this analogy to me? As far as I can tell they are both unique commodities that have offered very different qualities for the time periods they gained popularity in. But much of what I keep hearing in regards to Bitcoins surging popularity is, "Tulip mania all over again!"
Help me understand the similarities and/or differences between a pretty flower and an internet cryptocurrency. Thanks!
