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.

Lost your wallet password? Try Stillfire's Password Recovery Service.
Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

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.
