Pirateat40 was feeling chatty during/after the rally/crash yesterday.

I've posted a partial IRC log to: http://pastebin.com/PthgrzDS

The logfile has been edited for brevity. This was done by removing whole lines of text that I felt was irrelevant.
The logfile contains the answers to many questions about yesterday's rally, and raises some new, unsettling questions.

Feel free to discuss and post interesting highlights.

i hope some psychologist is documenting all this and preparing for the post-mortem, it will be a great read.

Code:
<pirateat40> this was kind of like a training simulation.
<pirateat40> it will all make sense soon enough.

<pirateat40> crashed is != corrected.
<pirateat40> we don't want another bubble and my charts/triggers were screaming at me.

<proudhon> pirateat40, could you stop another "rally" if one were to ignite right now and buy up above $10?
<pirateat40> proudhon, i could take use to 1.80 if i needed to.

<pirateat40> There is no point in the last 7 months that I've not been in control of the market.

<pirateat40> Keep buying people...
<pirateat40> I'm just going to say this [one] time.... If you panic buy, you're going to lose.
<pirateat40> Yes, Everyone BUY
<pirateat40> GO!, NOW
<pirateat40> The more you buy the more I make.

<pirateat40> this is the first time ive ever played the market. It was simply a statement, I don't plan on making it part of my process. It's simply a warning.

<pirateat40> 80% is the people not in our tiny community.
<pirateat40> Im trying to make a point here.

<pirateat40> well guys, i think i've scared off the sellers. I'm tired and going to call it night and let the bots play. IRCFrEAK, im pulling the my wall and dumping.... Get ready!

He warned to stop buying... then he crashed the market by 15% Shocked
... and made $20K USD

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

He made $20K USD, but he will not get those coins back for the same price..

Pirate is too small of a fish to control and direct the bitcoin market over the long run. He can try short term but longterm fail - as he has even already admitted.

... and made $20K USD

and [claimed to have] made $20K USD

but for that to have happened with no change in net position after it was all over, there would have needed to have been buying volume equal to 85% of the selling volume.  that doesn't appear to have occurred: http://bitcoincharts.com/charts/mtgoxUSD#rg1zig1-minzczsg2012-07-17zeg2012-07-18zm1g10zm2g25zi1gAccDistzvzcv

now if you were on an ego trip, and had other people's bitcoins where you could throw caution to the wind with no recourse, this makes more sense.

I am still amazed at how quickly people give out their money to complete strangers with a compelling
story how it will benefit them without really even knowing what is going on in the back ground.

fun times.

I will just keep mining and selling into this recent awesome upswing in prices! USD for me.
The sure thing in my book.

^this^

And all those logs are neat and all...


But does anyone have a log with an IDENT in it for that pirate nick?

Otherwise it is just as likely that it was a random trolling the piss out of you...

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Hear ya. Feel free to upload a raw logfile for posterity.

The guy named pirateat40 in #bitcoin@freenode said "walls go up", walls went up.
When he said "time to sell", walls went down, thousands of bitcoins were sold, price went down.

The tickers from the log give some weak indication of this.

What one could do is correlate the timestamps with high volume insantaneous trades and orderbook history from gox.

Easy to see in real time, a lot of work to correlate after the fact.

If it's an impostor, it's a psychic impostor.

If I had a raw logfile, I wouldn't be complaining.  If you can tell me which channel this was I might be able to look one up.

While you're correlating, add the timestamps from my posts here last night any time I posted and mentioned anything to do with moving $x here or there and see how that looks....
