This hero member was a student at the time and couldn't really afford to buy many even at that low, low price. Smiley

If you just focus on the largest wallets then yes I see a bit of a prisoner's dilemma. But there would have to be some stressor - like the value of BTC starts dropping as doom & gloom news starts to mount.

Then the large wallets play the game: they can all hold and help the price stabilize. Or one of them can coward-out and dump their BTC in the hope of getting all they can, further suppressing the price.
