delayed reaction to the reward halving + ASIC's hitting the market.. (mainly it was the ASICS event)

Some say it was many investors getting in at that time.
Some say that it was the Willybot.

That was attributed to the 2014 spike, not 2013's. Zero evidence was ever presented for in-house Gox trading bots, just people mindlessly repeating it.

Do you know the reason why it hit $1000 this year?I think the reason is more or less same.
Bitcoin is a volatile and just one good positive thing trigger its price up and one negative and price crashed like nothing.
This piece of article from businessinsider sums up the bitcoin rise in 2013 very well.
" Interest and buzz is absolutely
exploding, as people see a
combination of a surging
market, an alternative to
traditional currency, and a fun
speculation."

This was great opportunity and people were aware if you are not first you don't get big share, correlation can be found in history of gold rush. I think technological breakthrough is last on the list, as reason for such rise.

Yup, it's like the recent spike from the Greek and Indian buy in. But the previous spike to $12 also brought in a lot more users to push the price higher.

The main reason for bitcoin to rise at 100$ and more that year is not just because of demand and many investors getting bitcoin but it is because it is being manipulated though that manipulation ended up having good effect with bitcoin that made people trust bitcoin more. Also, One of the undeniable reason for the pump at 2013 is that it is a new concept of payment introduced to many but it is just a factor that mqde bitcoin pump to 100$ that time.

That was around the time venture capital was pouring into bitcoin and bitcoin companies - the Winklevosses and BitInstant for example, et al, and all the buzz and news publicity - both good and bad - that came with it all.
