A few specific price models have been mocked this week as people have noticed that bitcoin's price has not followed the 'Rainbow' price indicator and Plan B's famous stock-to-flow price model.

In January 2021, bitcoin's (BTC) USD value was seemingly following the S2F model and at the time Plan B said:...
