Wow this feels old school like a 1980's video
Or maybe that's what a conference room looks like in the modern era and hasn't changed retro.
Anyways can someone sum it up

Well since no one summed it up I watched it
Long live Satoshi Nakamura that was a classic otherwise it was actually pretty interesting
But the question we all want to know was not answered here.

Well he was never going to tell (although I'm not exactly clear why this information is so secret) but at least he gave a laugh when it was finally asked.
If you look at the handout that the marshal sent they do mention the idea of the winning bid becoming public knowledge and they sort of side step it and punt to the FOIA (freedom of information act).

I would think that with some bitter losers out there if I were among them I would make sure MY bid became public knowledge so at least people would know what the minimum price they could have sold for was. I think there may be a bit of that happening already bit so far it seems more like rumor than fact.

There is also a losing bidder claiming that the incompetence of the US Marshals cost them 100 BTC but that too could just be sour grapes.

I was a little surprised at how little about the inner workings of BTC Draper seemed to know. He was very uncomfortable she speaking about the 'how' and seemed to refer those questions to the kid for complete answers. He was however equally confident when talking about the big picture stuff, which I guess is where he lives anyway.

Best line:  when the Government confiscates cocaine they don't sell it!

I only have a signature because I'm allowed.

To say that would be comparing bitcoin to drugs!
