A USD/BTC price timelapse of the bear whale slaying on October 6th, 2014. The history of the bear whale:
At a market price of around $350 that morning, a large sale of 30,000 BTC on Bitstamp risked taking prices back to 2010 levels. Incredibly, soon after the “attack” on bitcoin’s price started, the community rallied to buy up all of his coins and maintain the market value. After six whole hours of his constant selling, the price jumped back up. The BearWhale had been “slain” - an event much celebrated in the community ever since, and reported in the mainstream media. For many, it bolstered their faith in Bitcoin.
I try to capture the tone of the event with the scoring, at the time we weren't sure if this was going to depress the market long term.
