50,000 bitcoins seized in Silk Road to be auctioned

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/tech/tech-news/50000-bitcoins-seized-in-Silk-Road-to-be-auctioned/articleshow/45192773.cms

The US Marshals Service said Monday it will auction 50,000 bitcoins seized during the prosecution of the alleged owner of Silk Road, an Internet black-market bazaar where authorities say illegal drugs and other goods could be bought.

An online auction is scheduled for Dec. 4 for the bitcoins, valued at nearly $19.8 million. It would be the Marshals Service`s second such auction following an earlier one in June for almost 30,000 bitcoins seized during the 2013 raid on Silk Road.

Why are you bumping up a 3 month old thread to make a generic statement like this?
