Unless youve been living under a rock, youre probably aware that bitcoin and a number of other digital currencies have seen some pretty crazy runs this year.

Bitcoin, the best-known digital currency, has surged 358 percent. While staggering, lesser-known competitors have seen even bigger gains, such as the more than 4,000 percent increase for ethereum.

Bespoke Investment Group contrasted the rise in bitcoin with infamous bubbles such as the tech market in the late nineties. Theres almost no comparison. Tech stocks rose just over 1,000 percent over the entire course of their bubble, and bitcoin is already up more than twice that. Take a look.
