The U.S. Marshals Service on Thursday held its third auction of bitcoins seized from Ross Ulbricht, convicted of operating black-market website Silk Road, with a sale of 50,000 units attracting higher demand than the previous auction.

The government had 14 registered bidders for the 34 bids received, said Marshals Service spokeswoman Lynzey Donahue. That was higher than the bids received at the last bitcoin auction in December, when just 11 buyers submitted 27 bids.

The first auction in June attracted 45 bidders and 63 bids.

I bet the Draper guy gets his share and wouldn't be surprised if he came out on top for the whole slate of them. He's probably got some healthy competition which is great as there's many competing interests to scoop this slot of coins on this upswing. Good times ahead even if there's a yo-yo setting in the mean time.

Well hope this news will make another btc rally upward on the market, there are always good news on btc being spread but the price of bitcoin totally is counter to that movement as seen in the past.
