Cryptocurrencies[edit]

Cryptocurrencies prices are growing fast, but this is not a prove to categorize it as a bubble. NASDAQ 2010-2017 is much higher and it's easy to find media articles talking about the "dot com 2.0 bubble", but we cannot categorize it as a bubble until it crashes. So please, do not include Cryptocurrencies as a bubble until we go through a Blow off phase. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 195.37.187.155 (talk) 10:28, 7 December 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Another point of view

To me and John Authers in the Financial Times, The Long View of 9 dec 17, we are in the opinion there was a bubble with the bitcoins at the end of 2013 when it gained 5,500 per cent to about $1,100 before it came back to around $200 in 2015. John Authers also think the bitcoin is currently in the bubble area with the price having increased fivefold in the first 11 months of this year and 70 per cent in the past week.

I would agree with that. Moreover, the 2013 slide in value was also described as a bubble.--DreamLinker (talk) 04:22, 10 December 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

GameStop[edit]

Would it be appropriate to include the GME shortsqueeze into the list of examples? It's newsworthy and caused a large number of people to suffer catastrophic losses. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 123.243.242.156 (talk) 04:20, 6 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
