"The end is near" or something like that. I don't think the value of Bitcoin represents a bubble, but who knows, there is no real comparison. The external factor certainly exists as shown by the Chinese government regulating bitcoin and its value declining thereafter. Look where we are today. I think the real threat is implementation errors or things like governments disallowing the use of cryptocurrencies.

Using pasture and water flows to model migration patterns of farmers. Those patterns resemble the Silk Road closely. Good idea for finding more interesting things: try to figure out how farmers move about and maybe you'll find some hidden archeological treasures.
