I always wondered how the charts looked like, say, 3 years ago, when nothing was known about this year's ATHs. So I decided to make an animated chart exploring this particular idea.
The chart stops at the last frame for a few seconds, then loops from the start. Like any time-lapse video, the one above too speeds up the real time events (3.5m times faster). I.e., 1 day equals 25 milliseconds.
Data source: Yahoo Finance BTC-USD CSV.
P.S.: Don't worry, if animation doesn't load up immediately. It might take some seconds to load up.
P.S.2.: Viewing from both Android and iOS usually works, but desktop might crop the last 300 frames for some reason.
