"A winning bidder claimed 2,700 BTC (worth $1.58m) at an auction held by the US Marshals Service (USMS) today. USMS representatives confirmed to CoinDesk that four bids were received in the auction, which took place between 13:00 and 19:00 UTC. The event, by far the smallest held to date by the USMS, saw bitcoins [stolen] in cases involving convicted Silk Road ringleader Ross Ulbricht and former federal agent Carl Force IV made available for sale."
