Surely the correct order is:
1. sell a lot of bitcoins, driving the price to $0.01
2. withdraw $1000 worth of bitcoins. that's 100,000 BTC
3. buy a lot of bitcoins, driving the price back to $13
now the $1000 worth of bitcoins you withdrew are now worth $1.3 million.
I wonder if that's what happened.
I think this is what happened. That's what the HYIPs did everyday. Claim DDos attack, then disappear.
100,000 bitcoins stolen with no trace.
Value = Priceless
Wait till they go to $100 a coin, and you have made a cool $10 Million
Cash out today, and you are worth 1.3 to 1.7 Million dollars US
