Presumably they have multiple wallets so there's nothing contradictory about it. They can be spread out and there can still be large transfers - maybe this is a secondary wallet.

So, I've got a theory, and here are some interesting tidbits...

  • I created an account a few days before the hack and it appears in the export (57051,"bigshot").
  • Around the same time around 6000 random looking accounts were created (from 52709,"hyquoshy" to 59354,"crostypa"). Was that part of a DDoS attempt, or some sort of known-text attack?
  • Kevin says that he attempted to raise his withdrawal limit prior to the attack.
  • MagicalTux says that Kevin logged in 3 minutes before the sell off and placed a large order at $0.01

The "Adam" you guys said was on the OnlyOneTV show was not an MtGox employee, he was Adam Stradling, a TradeHill co-founder.
