Most of you are missing the point.  This is not a comparison of a BitCoin to a Tulip.
You are missing the point. Around here we talk about the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, whose individual units are bitcoins.

If a person wants to appear credible in any field the language they use is very important because it communicates a great deal about them beyond the base syntactic meaning.

Doctors who have studied in medical school, and who spend a lot of time interacting with other doctors, use similar language patterns. They call things by the same name. We humans use that information to judge the credibility of the person talking to us. When we see someone using the wrong language for a particular we instantly know a lot about them at a subconscious level. The wrong language means the speaker doesn't interact much with other people in the field, which makes them an outsider and significantly reduces the probability that they know what they are talking about.

Proper terminology is necessary, but not sufficient, to establish credibility.

Just stop it with the Tuplip Mania crap, it is not even the same thing even slightly.

Tulips were not a brand new untried technology in the time that occurred and really was investor stupidity and mania. Tulips were not used as a currency. There was a certain mania here, but the price right now reflects who stayed. BTC has not crashed.

Im also keeping in mind that there are external forces at work on Bitcoin, the fluctuations are due to the rise in use and additional outside fiat being converted into BTC, plus new media hype simply a lot of desperate people out there looking to get ahead, and BTC is red hot. Some by long term investors, some by get rich quick people, as in any market. There has been no failure of the protocol or the community drive to see it succeed.

I look forward to the next rise to $500

@justusranvier. +1

When I see BitCoin instead of Bitcoin. I assume this person is informed about bitcoin via the media. Even though it is not incorrect to spell it that way.
