Silk Road Bitcoin Funds Is Used For The Shadow Brokers Auction
So far, the auction held by The Shadow Brokers has collected 1.761 Bitcoin, which is next to nothing.
The Shadow Brokers are attracting a lot of attention with their so-called NSA exploit kit auction. Although the group is demanding a price of 1 million Bitcoin, several of the bis which have been confirmed raise some questions. The US government obtained several thousand Bitcoin when shutting down Silk Road. What is preventing them from using this funds to win the auction?
Hardly anyone will be surprised to hear the US government will do everything they can to prevent this NSA toolkit from leaking. The only way to do so, right now, is by winning The Shadow Brokers’ auction on the darknet. Although the number of bids is still relatively small, the amounts being offered raise some interesting questions.
