It’s a bit of an understatement to say that Bitcoin has had a wild run in the past couple of days, hitting an all-time high above $18,000 on Thursday only to plunge about $3,000 within hours. By mid-Friday, Bitcoin prices seemed to be in a slow, rocky descent. And Twitter, of course, was there for market watchers to chronicle the madness.

Dad: What? $15,554??? $14,354 is a lot of money! What do you need $16,782 for anyway?
