I'd be interested to know how it is gaing value. Is it possible to manipulate bitcoin? Is this just big owners shifting BTC around to boost value? Not really sure how it works, but I'd frankly be blown away if the interest in bitcoin has doubled with the value. Nothing in the past couple months has fundamentally changed so why the increase? What is the story here?

Quadriga was a massive scam.
Quote:
Cotten is said to have used 14 accounts under pseudonyms like Chris Markay, Aretwo Deetwo and Seethree Peaohh. About 95 per cent of the account activity identified by the auditors involved the Markay account, which saw deposits of CAD$220 million, 34,806 Bitcoin and 540,011 Ethereum between 2016 and 2018.
Ernst & Young said it only about one per cent of these deposits had supporting documentation, and concluded all the other deposits were "not represented by actual fiat or cryptocurrency."
While the Chris Markay account appears to have been funded with unsupported deposits, the report says, "real cryptocurrency was transferred out."

I sold just over 3k worth of currency through that exchange.
