What is it: This shows bitcoin's ROI vs other potential inflation hedge assets.

Why it matters: As with the historical bitcoin price table, we see bitcoin's extreme outperformance vs other assets here as well. Bitcoin's relatively small size, plus fundamental properties, yield extreme outperformance when even relatively small funds-flows find their way to BTC.

EXCERPT

There is no authority in Bitcoin - even the principles outlined in this article are by no means authoritative, they are simply observations made by myself and other ecosystem participants.

- Bitcoin is a system that automates the continual discovery of consensus amongst its participants. - It is machine consensus that enforces human consensus.
- Consensus failures can destroy the whole system by causing loss of confidence in its reliability.
- Consensus code should be ringfenced and rarely touched.
- Protocol changes should not be forced upon users without their consent. That is, users should opt into changes rather than having to opt out.
- As such, software clients should not update automatically, as that would take power away from users and put it in the hands of developers.
- Due to the distributed nature of the network, it should not be assumed that every user is paying attention to protocol changes.
