This column provides a visual blow-by-blow of what happened May 17 on BitStamp, and a risk/return estimate: if it was manipulation, how much it cost, and how much the manipulators earned. It shows how novel structures and thin markets could makes manipulation possible. It concludes with thoughts on the liquidity imbalance that caused it, and how it might happen again.
