Putting bitcoin volatility in context, Mystery chart:
The x axis is determined by a rough estimation of how often "the coin gets flipped".

Its just showing usd/btc daily vs nasdaq composite monthly. The ratio of btc-time to nasdaq-time varies. It starts out at 1 btc day = 1 nasdaq month and has been approaching "parity" or whatever you want to call it. You can see that bubbles like the 2011 one are not uncommon, they usually just take longer to unfold and involve more people.
