(8:51:51 PM) me: that is how a free market works
(8:51:52 PM) friend: because someone sold huge amt

(9:03:53 PM) friend: at every ceiling
(9:03:54 PM) me: how do u know karpeles even has access to the dark pool information
(9:03:59 PM) me: it could be encrypted and stored
(9:04:02 PM) me: so even he doesnt know
(9:04:07 PM) me: then he could trade without any advantage
(9:04:09 PM) me: u just dont know anything
(9:04:20 PM) me: and how does he know when its gonna ceiling
(9:04:24 PM) me: like u say when a bunch of deposits come in
(9:04:26 PM) me: but like
(9:04:30 PM) me: theres ppl who have mtgoxusd
(9:04:31 PM) me: just sitting there

(9:04:40 PM) friend: uh
(9:04:41 PM) friend: uh
(9:04:42 PM) friend: uh
(9:04:42 PM) me: so he'd have to KNOW when it was gonna ceiling
(9:04:44 PM) me: and then
(9:04:45 PM) friend: he does the deposists
(9:04:46 PM) me: sell quicker
(9:04:48 PM) me: than the other ppl

(9:05:45 PM) me: hope u get far with them
(9:05:51 PM) me: ill stick to embracing my diet
(9:05:55 PM) me: and thinking about life
(9:06:02 PM) friend: ok
(9:06:19 PM) friend: it is much more likely for ppl to be inclined to insider trading
(9:06:25 PM) me: stop dude
(9:06:30 PM) me: u dont understand the simplest of concepts
(9:06:32 PM) friend: rather than regulated
(9:06:33 PM) me: knowledge of the deposits means nothing
(9:06:40 PM) me: he cant force ppl to use those deposits
(9:06:47 PM) friend: ok
(9:06:56 PM) me: and he cant force ppl with btc to sell either
(9:07:07 PM) me: all he does is facilitate an exchange
(9:07:10 PM) me: for a small fee
(9:07:12 PM) me: hahaha
(9:07:17 PM) friend: IN AN INSTANT
(9:07:19 PM) me: when is anyone ever sitting with 500k
(9:07:22 PM) me: ur outta ur mind

(9:08:40 PM) friend: INFO IS TOO IMPORTANT
(9:09:01 PM) me: i just explained to u
(9:09:08 PM) me: there is no clear way for him to gain an advantage
(9:09:31 PM) me: if u are so sure theres an advantage, literally NOTHING is stopping u from starting your own exchange, and doing all these things you talk about him doing
(9:09:37 PM) me: lets see if you make money, or get RAPED
(9:09:38 PM) me: hahahaah
(9:09:42 PM) me: freakin genius man
(9:09:45 PM) me: info is too important
(9:09:49 PM) me: info that deposits are coming in
(9:09:52 PM) me: info that he can use for what?
(9:09:57 PM) me: info that ppl have mtgoxusd
(9:10:04 PM) me: and can of their own free will trade it for btc
(9:10:07 PM) me: how does that help him?
(9:10:09 PM) me: hahaha
(9:10:16 PM) me: there is no advtange
(9:10:19 PM) me: just get that thru your head
(9:10:22 PM) me: there is no advantage

(9:12:13 PM) me: dark pool is just so ppl wont use bots
dark pool is just so ppl wont use bots
(9:12:14 PM) me: dark pool is just so ppl wont use bots
(9:12:14 PM) me: dark pool is just so ppl wont use bots
(9:12:14 PM) me: dark pool is just so ppl wont use bots
(9:12:14 PM) me: dark pool is just so ppl wont use bots
(9:12:15 PM) me: dark pool is just so ppl wont use bots
(9:12:23 PM) me: ur literally clueless as to how any of this stuff works, and i am done
(9:12:26 PM) me: hahahaha
(9:12:39 PM) me: if he knows theres a dark pool
(9:12:42 PM) me: that dosnt make him any money
(9:12:44 PM) me: hahahahahahaha
(9:12:47 PM) me: its so ppl can trade
(9:12:51 PM) me: without affecting the market price
(9:12:54 PM) me: put orders up at least
(9:13:00 PM) me: if it gets traded, then it still affects the price
(9:13:03 PM) me: because the trade will show up
(9:13:13 PM) me: u rlly talk a lot for someone who doesnt even understand the most basic of things
(9:13:32 PM) me: the size of the exchange doesnt matter at all anyways, since u said ppl who make 20m will insider trade, so why would u do it for 5$?
(9:13:47 PM) friend: IT DOES
(9:13:58 PM) friend: DUMBASS
(9:14:01 PM) me: ok
(9:14:03 PM) me: that makes sense
(9:14:04 PM) me: NOT
(9:15:01 PM) me: just explain to me
(9:15:04 PM) me: this very simple thing
(9:15:05 PM) friend: AND IT WOULD HAVE LIKE 90% VOLUME
(9:15:09 PM) me: how does he profit from knowleedge of dark pools
(9:15:11 PM) friend: OF ALL THE MARKETS
(9:15:13 PM) me: and how does he profit from knowledge of deposits
(9:15:18 PM) me: i need you to expalin to me
(9:15:21 PM) me: how that gives him more profit
(9:15:26 PM) me: cause i honestly dont understand
(9:15:30 PM) me: if i knew about the dark pools, thats it
(9:15:32 PM) me: i know they exist
(9:15:37 PM) friend: OK
(9:15:39 PM) me: but say theres an order to buy
(9:15:40 PM) me: at 20?
(9:15:41 PM) me: ok?
(9:15:45 PM) me: for 100k btc
(9:15:49 PM) me: i cant fill that order
(9:15:53 PM) me: because the higher orders have to be filled first
(9:15:56 PM) me: so it doesnt matter
(9:15:58 PM) me: dont u get it?
(9:15:59 PM) me: sigh
(9:16:08 PM) me: err at 10$
(9:16:14 PM) me: not 20, because obv that would filled
(9:16:18 PM) me: since its 16 right now
(9:16:31 PM) me: but someone wants to buy 100k btc for 1mill usd at 10
(9:16:35 PM) me: mtgox cant just fill that order
(9:16:36 PM) friend: the buys are not as relevant
(9:16:38 PM) friend: as the sells
(9:16:40 PM) me: the higher orders have to be filled first
(9:16:41 PM) me: im just saying
(9:16:44 PM) me: theres no advantage
(9:16:45 PM) me: either way
(9:16:51 PM) me: dark pools are simply
(9:16:54 PM) friend: there is an order
(9:16:55 PM) me: so that ppl wont have to write trading bots
(9:16:59 PM) friend: at 20
(9:17:02 PM) me: to sell of a bunch at a vertain price
(9:17:02 PM) friend: for 100k
(9:17:20 PM) friend: and at 25 for 200k
(9:17:25 PM) friend: and a whole bunch
(9:17:28 PM) friend: near 20-25
(9:17:44 PM) friend: thats clearly a brick wall
(9:17:55 PM) friend: say its at 19.4
(9:18:02 PM) friend: or 18
(9:18:05 PM) friend: say its at 18

(9:18:18 PM) friend: has no idea
(9:18:20 PM) me: and sell before he can
(9:18:22 PM) friend: if it is goign to breach 20

(9:18:45 PM) me: and he doesnt make any money
(9:18:51 PM) me: i mean ur whole theory is just insane

(9:19:10 PM) me: ppl insider trade on wall street casue it makes them millions
(9:19:16 PM) me: with your theory hed make like an extra 50btc a day

but rly, what kind of information mtgox can have which is not public? Only the amount of cash/BTC stored in his accounts. So if someone transfers $1m, he knows that the price will go up.

I agree that it is pretty stupid for the owner of any exchange to trade on their own exchange. MtGox is back because he will make more money from trade transactions than stealing all the money and running.

However your friend does have a point. What prevents him from skimming off the top, manipulating the market, and other unethical actions? I personally am very excited MtGox is back and stable again. I am glad he is regaining trust and continuing on. I do think however there are a lot of questions about what happened that haven't been answered.

Some interesting points have been brought up about the details of the hacks, who's money was being controlled, what was actually withdrawn, etc. I do think that these questions need to be answered, most likely by an independant financial audit (with better security involved).

I for one applaud the guys over at MtGox for all the work they have done and the contribution they have made to this community. I wish them the best in all their endevours. Hopefully with more forthcoming transparency as things calm down.

What motivation would someone with millions of dollars worth of BTC have for manipulating price?  Roll Eyes

I didn't read your irc logs, learn to ask your question in a few tight paragraphs.

Why wouldn't he do prop trading? He has quite a number of built in advantages over any other market participant and zero transparency or oversight. Your thesis is that it'd ruin his business when(if) found out? It's difficult for me to believe that enough people would abandon him even if it came out - just look at these forums, there are plenty of people posting that don't even understand how much of an advantage he'd have.

I read the log, it's about how when you got all the info on the exchange like darkpool liquidity, peoples account sizes, you can best determine when to sell and how to make price fall just far enough to get yourself a good buy opportunity.
It is an interesting thought to say the least, but I don't think mtgox is that smart.
