BFX : Margin Call Cascade Algorythm Explained

BITFINEX:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
What we saw earlier was the bitfinex algorythm in case of margin call cascade.
This is the explanatation of how it work (not official one, just guess).

There is a limit for the margin call cascade of about 10% drop in 1 minute. Then the algo stop market selling the bitcoin , and let the buy order to fill the gap. Then it sell again to the previous limit and repeat the processus until it sold every bitcoin from the margin calls.

I m open to any suggestion or comments

Edit : the begin of the action was due to a single 5k sell order to 575.
