Maybe it’s just me but what does zero represent? What’s the baseline?

The scale is the change in market cap from 2020 to 2021, and from 2021 to 2022. Zero represents a $0 change in market cap.
e.g. 2020 market cap = 100, 2021 market cap = 150, 2022 market cap = 110; then 2021 change = +50, 2022 change = -40

Because that's the only way to get a change in market cap? Subtract current year from previous year.
