Do you have a source for your figures?

Here is an article from 2016 talking about Bitcoin's possible demise.

No, bitcoin should not be outlawed.
However those who are holding it now and hoping for further huge gains, may find themselves disappointed.

There's no indication that it's value is going to stop growing. It's just now starting to go mainstream.

We'll probably see 100k bitcoin in 2018.

Not a chance. Better look up the Dutch Tulip Mania of the 1600's.
History repeats.

People have been calling bitcoin a bubble and comparing it to "Tulip Mania" since it was 30$.

They still haven't shut up and learned their lesson.

Bitcoin is a new technology, a paradigm shift. Not comparable to fashionable Tulip bulbs.
