   His weary eyes reflected the dim glare of his laptop as he glanced down at the coffee that had turned cold long ago.

  "Shit."  

  He hadn't had time to taste it, he'd been noisily tapping away on the keyboard for hours.  Gaining control of the major exchanges hadn't come easy, but the work paid off, and he now had access to every bitcoin being bought and sold on the open market.  It was another layer of dominance over the system, and that filled him with an almost primal level of satisfaction.

  Part of him was tempted to cash it all out now.  He paused with his hands hovering over the keyboard.

  I should just empty all the accounts and run with the money.

  He sighed, brushed back his sweat-matted hair, and began typing again.  He hadn't gotten to this point by acting like an amateur. Stealing the money outright would be quicker, but more risky. He also knew that the real money came from controlling the trading, and if he was smart about it, he could keep the money rolling in for a very long time.
  
  It wasn't easy work, though. There's a lot to keep in mind when you control an entire micro-economy.  His programming skills combined with a healthy trust fund had made it easy to corner the market at first, but the market was growing.  It had become unruly and unpredictable like a caged tiger, and it was threatening to break free from his control.  

  So, like so many other nights, he spends tonight hunched over his keyboard. No time to sleep now, there are new trade and arbitrage bots to code. His hands move deftly across the keyboard as his thoughts drift back to what he read on a forum earlier in the day.  One of the members had somehow stumbled across some of his handy work, and had whipped the rest of the forum up into quite a frenzy. They even came up with a cute nickname for him.

  The Manipulator, he chuckled, I like it.

Are you really the manipulator? If so can you make the value of BTC go up as well as down?
I wonder what the prediction is for BTC value by the end of this year (I guess that only you will really 'know')? How do you manage to control a micro-economy? Hacking skills? Positive publicity?

I wish I can help things along in the BTC economy as well like you (but I'm just a filmmaker).

So, two important questions:  What brand of vodka and how do you get the kiwi to fly in the avatar?

Thanks - watched the clip.  It's nicely animated.  We have other birds that plummet, not just the Kiwi.
