Ok guys, let's have a good discussion.

Most people view bitcoin charts with arithmetic (linear)

scales. However, there is strong critique from some people that arithmetic charts should not be used; some people claim that

arithmetic scales improperly exaggerate signals at the top end of the axis and *hide valuable information* at the lower end of the function axis.

They claim, log(aritmic) scales should be used.

For instance have a look at BTC with arithmetic scale:

And here with log scale:

What are your thoughts? Is the traditional arithmetic/linear way to view btc prices useless and should we all adopt log scales? Or does using the arithmetic scale have its use?
