People cared only because there was nothin' else interesting happening since the fork incident.

That's why I'm very confused about the whole thing. I know about market psychology and all, but buying 11 000 bitcoins because a random troll says he is going to buy a ton of bitcoins, is just beyond my understanding. It's a strange day.

That explanation, I can accept. If buyers were already on the trigger, it makes sense.

That's pretty much what I was saying earlier as well.  It sparked a handful of people who had bids at $30 or $40 to actually just buy.  This may start an avalanche of buying with some of the other $8mil USD sitting in bids atm.

The price did go up. Maybe someone was just floating it as a test to see how much the market would move.

Maybe he was privy to information about someone who intended to buy, and decided to ride on the coattails for a while trying to set up his own, much smaller, dump.

Although the data is hardly useful, if someone tried to replicate the results there would probably be an entirely different reaction.

Maybe he's 12 years old, and laughing really hard right now.

All the action so far has been in the f-en Mt.Gox. Bitstamp is doing just fine at $47.6 when I last checked.

weird. why are the arbitrageurs not doing their work?

What makes you guys so sure the this little flurry was down to the $1m claim?  As I left work it looked to me like it was about to go off (walls moving northward) and was not surprised at all that it had shot up with some pretty active trading by the time I got home.  THEN this claim came about.  

I suspect the subsequent bout of heavy trading was more to do with those who had been expecting and hoping to buy back in at $2x or $3x giving up and buying back in.  I have been somewhat surprised at the number of those I would consider to be experienced and with their heads screwed on who have been saying how they've sold off around the current high hoping to be getting back in much lower.  I'm not saying it won't go that way but I'd be more surprised than if it goes up by the same amount.

I'm just pleased to see some volume come back in.  We've already left Friday's volume behind and looking strong to get up to Thursday's or even Wednesday's before midnight here in London.

If you have a machine on 24/7 why not have a full Bitcoin client running on it to support the network?

The reddit troll actually posted after MtGox got going, so I doubt it had much influence.

Yes, I know - why does that make a difference? Absurd posts on bitcointalk are suspicious, but if they are on reddit, it's legit?

Yeah, there was a $1 difference. Narrowed down by now. But the price is not crashing, so obviously the troll did not have BTC25,000 to sell either  Grin

This is another example, albeit a very tiny one, of how Bitcoin is anti-fragile. The troll manipulation hit made people more resistant to that kind of manipulation in the future.
