Hi, does anyone know how to explain this transfer of 2.2 million BTC (a third of all Bitcoins in existence) which happened the day of the Mt. Gox crash?

http://blockexplorer.com/block/00000000000010b2b2d886ece5ef9ec089139dddb3a6f35cca6c56c5b371d4b9

The only thing I can think of is that Mt. Gox moved their entire stash of customers' coins to a new account for safety in case their wallet.dat got stolen by the hacker...

Thanks for any insights,
-Mike

If all the sovereign non-cryptocurrencies will eventually collapse from hyperinflation, you can't afford *not* to invest in Bitcoin...  See my blog at http://minetopics.blogspot.com/ .
