It's ye olde gold bug. Irrational behavior in the pursuit to enrich oneself.
Sometimes it is..and I'd say a large portion of the recent price growth was/is being driven by this irrational behavior. But also a portion of it is not irrational behavior but a genuine belief in the technical and practical advantages of the bitcoin monetary system. The people that are adopting bitcoin and building ventures around and with it are the ones that should get the glory. The speculators on the other hand see an easy "get rich" opportunity and well they take it - it's human nature.
Worry not, all things will work out just fine in the end
The free market will take care of itself.
