What the 2011 bounce highlights is a potentially strong technical level based on a trading perspective, not much more.
As for the video - there was nothing in it to suggest the poster had any fundamental understanding of the Bitcoin network, only it's behavior in relation to other traditional investments. The whole rehash of early adopter 'unfairness' sob story is immature and naive.
Regarding value, the argument of bitcoins not having any value is also a load of ignorant claptrap. There is no universal interpretation of value. A number like 7610598101114116121 has no more meaning than 自由 to anyone who doesn't have a reference point, and so might be claimed as 'valueless'. Yet with an appropriate understanding, both communicate information. Without context
, their value is unknowable.
worthwhile is the suggestion that volume
is as important as price
, if not more so. The differences are more pronounced on a weekly scale, and it can be seen that large outflows of USD in the mtgoxUSD charts are often met with an even greater shift in bitcoin holdings. To me, that suggests there is an interest in accumulation
of bitcoins, outweighing the preference for USD. This is especially evident from late 2011 to now, where relatively small shifts in exchange rates result in comparatively large transfers of bitcoin holdings.
