Compared to 2015, bitcoin has had a stellar 2016.
But when it comes to bitcoin's price, it's all relative.
So before the bitcoin community gets out the party hats to celebrate the $600 mark that bitcoin is inching toward, it's worth taking a look at the bitcoin price trends over the last three years.
