A couple of days ago we came across an article on Bloomberg about an upcoming auction (6/27/14 - Today) on a cache of Bitcoins worth about $17 million. The auction is for 29,656 Bitcoins, which are part of more than 144,000 the FBI transferred to U.S. Marshals after shutting down the Silk Road marketplace and arrested its operator last year. This auction offers a rare opportunity to secure a large amount of the virtual currency at one time.

I thought it would be interesting at ask....
As always, we would love to hear what you have to say on the subject of the auction or just Bitcoin (BITCOIN:BITSTAMPUSD) in general.
