This Guy Wants To Buy All The Silk Road Bitcoins Seized By The FBI

• Business Insider

Stapper has reached out to the US government on behalf of Falcon Global Capital with an offer to buy the Bitcoins. One estimate pegs the FBI as owning between 5% and 10% of all Bitcoins out there.

Stapper told Business Insider that "[the FBI has] not given us a yes or no yet. However, our lawyers are making calls daily to follow up on this. We have secured backing from a group of private investors to purchase all 27,000 Bitcoins for 15% below the daily value." (The FBI might be tempted by a below-market-value offer in return for the convenience of offloading them all at once.)
