If that is the case has DPR decided to start moving/washing the funds just for fun of it?  Or to make us think that pirateat40 owned the wallet?  I feel like the timeline of the address building a balance and the how it is empty now is more than just a coincidence.

Probably because too many eyes looking at it is bad for business.
I suspect you'll never see an address with that amount of Bitcoins again, even if the address belongs to MtGox and not to SR.

What would you do if 400 geeks spent most of the day looking at your bank account and posting on a forum even the tiniest tx you made in or out of your account?

It's not pirate.

Here is the evidence of people who say it is:

1. Pirate once said he had ~500k BTC.

2. The address once had ~500k BTC.

I'm open to the idea that it's mt.gox still, if you consider pirate's alleged 10k move that wobbled the market a couple of months ago was tied somehow to 1DkyB, you might argue that the transaction showed on one of mt.gox's wallets rather than one of pirate's.

I thought it was on the basis of the fact that when pirate sold off a massive amount of BTC to "manipulate the market" down from $9 or so, this address had 80K BTC of withdrawals just shortly before that happened...

In context, his claims looked like obvious trolling to me. (Like most of his comments did.)

Currently the hypothesis that Pirate was acting as a passthrough to Zeek seems like the most likely scenario. That would mean he had nothing to do with the large address.

OP Updated: Added September 10. 2012:

1DkyBEKt5S2GDtv7aQw6rQepAvnsRyHoYM came with BTCST, disappeared along with BTCST.

I assume this is (one of?) Pirate's wallets, and the main "Savings" part of BTCST.

I anticipated ~500K to be the balance of BTCST based on the premise that 1DkyBEK belongs to pirate before pirate himself claimed BTCST to be around 500K.

I predict you'll start noticing 1DkyBEK behaving quite differently after Aug. 17 than it has in the preceeding months up to Pirate closing shop.

The movements of July 17 were at the time unprecedented and would be an outlier, but have also been claimed by pirate himself.

If 1DkyBEK grows at a similar pace in the upcoming months, or eclipses the height of its former glory, my main premise will be proven wrong.

In a few weeks or months, not days, we can make a judgement. I think it's Pirate, if I'm wrong, we'll be able to tell soon enough.





Final Balance: 0.17055187 BTC

I think it'd be funny if the private key for the address was now released into the wild (making everyone feel a bit like "if I only had this two months ago..."). I'm just not sure on how that could be done completely anonymously.

But still, what says the address isn't going to be used to store thousands of coins again? There's no way one can be sure this is the BTCST address, and in case it is, who knows pirate isn't going to deposit more money there (hoping it increases 7% a week in magical ways, perhaps? Smiley )...

I actually got a payment today that was a straight shot (after a couple hundred hops) back to this address from the 150k withdrawal on August 31st.

Not sure, I'm waiting on a response from the sender.

I don't think that really tells you anything useful unless you plan to track the coins back a couple hundred steps.

We've seen coins before go directly to 1Dky after being deposited to Silk Road - that's a single hop.

Alright. Case closed, thread locked? Also, this:
