All the talk about why the rally is happening. In my opinion, it is simple. Because this is happening on websites...



The fact that you don't know which site I pulled this from proves my point Wink

Price is irrelevant, bitcoin's mainstream adoption is priceless. Utility FTW!

The $17 mark is because one guy suddenly spent hundreds of thousands on coins in the last few days.

Source?

And if true, then why did he do it? Like anyone who is actually paying attention to this thing, perhaps he realized that Bitcoin has proven itself and is now starting to make inroads outside the Bitcoin community.

If I were the CEO of a medium to large company planning to accept Bitcoin I would (as the company) start by buying a lot of them cheaply in the months before I would announce it.

From gogreensolar.com:

We are working with our shopping cart provider to integrate Bitcoin for a seamless checkout process.  We appreciate your patience and understanding in the mean time. (You can also give Shopify a prod if you'd like to see this supported in their software!)

This is a great opportunity for someone with some technical skills. Create a Shopify app that integrates Bitcoin payment.

http://apps.shopify.com/

Charge a modest monthly fee for Shopify customers to use it. Programmer creates an income stream, and lots of Shopify-powered stores suddenly have an easy bitcoin option.

Repeat the formula for Magento, BigCommerce, etc.

Right, it's not necessarily a bad thing to have one entity purchase a large amount of coins. The following "source" is not really credible proof I suppose, but just by looking at the charts for the last few days, you can see that the price increases were driven by a select few gigantic purchases.

I wouldn't be surprised if the non-negative commentary on bitcoin in zerohedge a month or so ago attracted some bigger whales.

Maybe someone knows that something is going to happen, and that there are not many places to hide:

More than $114 billion walked out of the biggest United States banks this month, and nobody’s quite sure why.
