And to think that a couple of weeks ago we were complaining that bitcoin is 'boring'.  Cool

This is awesome, way better than the "China bans bitcoin: episode 185" arc that we had before.

Willy bot's story was bad...that one is terrible. Most bearish thing I've read lately. Disturbingly plausible but still highly suspicious that it gets "revealed" precisely today. Great FuD event anyhow. BTC never disappoint.

The story of Mt. Gox and Silkroad is more and more like a drama. I believe it will attract eyeballs for bitcoin.

Maybe Hollywood wants to shoot a movie about this, which further promote the public awareness of bitcoin.

Name: "The Wolf of the Silkroad"?

Already saw two suggestions for this. I dont see hollywood ever doing this.
However you know who did a great piece "the real wolf of wallstreet"? - VICE

VICE could cover this story its right up their ally. I hope someone there realizes what a great story this is and how much it suits their media
Lets mail Shane Smith!

The Homeland Security agent’s theory was that Karpeles, as owner of Mt. Gox, held an enormous amount of Bitcoin. He used Silk Road to leverage that price and raise it, which it did by several hundred times over during the course of Silk Road’s lifespan. Bitcoin was worth around $2 at Silk Road's launch and hit as high as $290 by 2013.




What the hell do they mean by "leverage that price and raise it"?
Can anyone here come up with a scenario how keeping gox money at silk road could have raised the price?




My guess is that (assuming this whole thing is true) Mark used the bitcoins from SR to pump bitcoin on gox, then when shit hit the fan he seppuku'd SR with the help of the FBI (remember this caused the huge bubble up to $1k)

It's sadly actually looking plausible but I still remain sceptical about the whole thing, DPR is a VERY opinionated and idealistic guy which Mark really isn't, their characters just don't match in my opinion.


Unless it was all a ruse..

How does one uses bitcoins - to pump bitcoins?

You don't.

It''s a moronic theory.

Keeping the proceeds from silk road and stashing them, thus shortening the supply.
It's scams, all the way down.

Yes, demand & greed fueled the bubbles. Just like it will fuel the next ones and fear fueled the crashes like we are seeing now. Normal human behavior.

I heard the name somewhere, but that's all. They are not even listed on the coinmarketcap bitcoin exchanges. How big are they?

Mark could have used Mt. Gox to money laundry the dirty cash for the Silk Road. It think it is more plausible than the pumping theory.

He could do pumping by a bot, why bother by using real fiat from the Silk Road?

This BTC roller coaster has me totally slacking AFK

Wild volatility and volume, trendlines broken, chaos, blood.
Then there is fake volume news, bitstamp news, Karpeles&Ulbricht news, a couple of companies turned scammers, a couple of companies closing doors/filing for bankruptcy.
More to come tomorrow... was price rise a bull trap or a reversal, btc miami conference with garza and winklevosses, some weird fat guy on twitter and his life changing news.
