Bitcoin crashes again, China buys a lot

Yesterday Mt. Gox announced that withdrawals of cash and bitcoins are temporarily disabled, blaming the bitcoin protocol. (While actually it’s only their fault: they assumed that the transaction id is unique and not editable, allowing scammers to duplicate their withdrawals…)
Obviously such a news made the bitcoin value tank. Watching on, you can see that Chinese people gladly bought the “discounted” bitcoins, buying them in mass (600 bitcoins in 10 minutes!!!)
