US to auction $17.4 (£10.2) worth of Bitcoin

Bitcoin worth up to £10.2m will be auctioned off by the US government on Friday from the now-defunct online drug sales website, Silk Road. Bidders must put down a $200k deposit in order to participate. Last week, the US government accidentally leaked a list of all interested parties in the anonymous auction . SecondMarket, which is offering a syndicate to allow more people to buy Bitcoin for lower amounts, discussed the event on Bloomberg television.
