The US Marshals Service opened its online auction today for more than 30,000 bitcoins seized from the servers of the nefarious internet marketplace Silk Road during the 2013 raid on the network, Vice News reports.

With the auction block open, multiple bundles of the currency worth approximately $17.4 million will be up for grabs in an event that could affect public bitcoin market values. Bidding will take place between 6AM and 6PM on Friday, and winners will be announced by June 30.
