posted 27 days ago
Wilsons Auction House in the UK will be hosting a cryptocurrency auction for roughly 315 coins. The coins are Bitcoin and some other alts. The full day long auction will begin on February 28th. Originally seized by Belgian authorities, the coins were related to a dark web market. They have an estimated value of around $400,000.

Wilsons says “The contract, which had significant interest from other companies across Europe, is the first of its kind awarded to an auction house and will see Wilsons Auctions facilitate the storage and sale of seized crypto assets managed by the Federal Government of Belgium.”
