The U.S. is getting rid of all of the Bitcoin it took from drug dealers when it closed down Silk Road last year. How, you ask? With a good ol' fashioned auction.

Okay, so how much in Bitcoin could you potentially purchase? This much:

Holy shit. The auction begins June 27th, where you'll need:

  • A manually signed pdf copy of the Bidder Registration Form
  • A copy of a Government-issued photo ID for the Bidder (or Control Person(s) of Bidder)
  • $200,000 USD deposit sent by wire transfer originating from a bank located within the United States (please provide receipt of transfer)

Head here if you got that much cash to unload on some more cash.
