Unfortunately for the US Marshals, the Bitcoin would have been worth significantly more if they would have auctioned it off immediately after seizure. Their worth is now estimated $235 per Bitcoin, after fluctuating significantly over the past several months.
Hopefully, whoever wins these auctions will get their electronic money's worth.
