When Bitcoin was first launched in 2009, barely any knew about the project, created by pseudonymous programmer Satoshi Nakamoto. The few that did know of the cryptocurrency either hated it with a burning passion or loved it for its long-term potential. And while the former group picked up steam, with mainstream media bashing cryptocurrencies via FUD-ridden articles, simple data shows that BTC, along with the underlying network has continued to outperform, even amid a number of broader downturns.
Per data gathered and conveyed by Rhythm Trader, a pseudonymous crypto enthusiast, trader, and researcher that touts insightful tweets, Bitcoin’s yearly lows are up (nearly) consistently year-over-year. Save for the slight hiccup during 2014’s bear season, which was accentuated by Mt. Gox debacle, the asset’s yearly low has swelled exponentially as every 12 months have passed.
