Same stuff different spin, the only thing they said about the bid was it was below market price. So maybe they ended up going for market price.

Considering the price rise I suspect they went for over market price. This was a good day for bitcoin.

I am thinking people bid spot, This is my theory don't flame it, subscribe to it or like it if you do not agree lol.

Buying large amounts of coins on the open market would push the price up, so if someone had the capital to buy large amounts of coins they would infact need I would guess about 10% on top of the spot price to adjust for the increase. The buying the blocks at spot actually is a good deal if you look at it from that view, there is no way you could get large amounts of coins on the open market with out a price increase of some shape or form.

Just my theory lol
