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

Bitcoin is a new monetary asset that is climbing an adoption curve. Although it is not yet a
broadly accepted store of value, Bitcoin has great potential as a future store of value based on
its intrinsic features.

Since monetary assets do not arise frequently, Bitcoin is likely to challenge our ordinary

for patient, long-term investors willing to spend the time to truly understand Bitcoin. We hope
this paper provides a helpful starting point.
