History of Bitcoin Roller Coaster

The story of the gif that keeps on giffing

I created the Bitcoin Roller Coaster animated gif in early 2013. The inspiration came from all the talk of the price being a roller coaster ride. I posted it publicly in a few places: here on BrainlessTales.com, on the bitcointalk forums, and on reddit. The initial response was not great.
