Interesting, was that capitulation triggered by some sort of fundamental news?

I wasn't in crypto at that time - just looked at your charts.

I wasn't either to be fair, starting trading at the end of 2016.
Checked what caused the August 2015 dump, apparently it was some FUD around a Bitcoin fork:

The market was very illiquid back then though.
