The devastating day now known as Black Thursday took Bitcoin price down to $3,800. The sharp collapse also knocked the asset out of a logarithmic growth curve it had been following its entire history. This latest, over 160% rally has now reclaimed that generational log curve, making it the greatest shake out the cryptocurrency market has ever witnessed.

The stock market alongside it had set a new all-time high. But a spreading pandemic and its impact on the economy had other ideas for markets, causing a catastrophic collapse. The stock market suffered its worst quarter close on record as a result, and Bitcoin fell out of a logarithmic growth curve it traded within for over ten years.
