Q:So what can you tell us about the events in April 2013?

A:Well, as some know I had several millions of Bitcoins from the very get go, when they cost me 0.00001 of ... nothing, really.
  I didn't know what to do with it, I just kept them.

  Then Mt.Gox guys came to Japan and they wanted to start an exchange. They told me they think they can sell a lot of it,
  but they needed a source of a decent quantity of BTCs, for a good upfront price.

  So we made a deal.

  I would give them a million of BTCs, but in exchange they had to guarantee me that, when I decide to sell another part of my stash,
  they would honor my request, whatever the quantity it is and whatever the market price is at that time.

  I mean, I didn't want to sell just so that they can turn around, sell them for a much better price and get filthy rich from my hard work.

  And then it happened. I swear I didn't expect it to skyrocket! Not so fast anyway.
 
  So I had these issues:
  a) - people obviously wanted my BitCoins and I still had a good chunk of them. How was I to distribute my BitCoins to the people?
  b) - market needed a correction. A price had to stabilize. Somebody had to teach the kids that it is not real life. How was I to do that?
  c) - all these morons were making money, hand over fist, all from the fruits of my labor.
    
  I mean, if you think that I was greedy what would you think if I waited until the coin was, like, $1,000 USD?
  
  So you see, I had to do it. For the good of the people and for my own good.

you joke, but that was my theory for yesterday's situation.

today's situation is somebody that was waiting in the wings to piggy back off an old timer selling a chunk off
