  • Last week the trustees of bust bitcoin exchange Mt Gox said they had sold $ 400 million of bitcoin since the end of last year.
  • Bitcoin investors blamed the large sell orders for a slump in bitcoin’s price at the start of the year.
  • Many investors believe Mt Gox’s trustees can’t sell any more bitcoin until the next creditors meeting in September.
  • The expected pause in selling is helping bitcoin rally from recent lows.

Bitcoin slumped last week after it emerged that the trustees of bankrupt Japanese exchange Mt Gox had sold bitcoin holdings worth $ 400 million since the end of last year.
