eBay auction finds $100 million in Bitcoin on site
- by admin
eBay’s Bitcoin auction found $100,000 in Bitcoin, the company said.
The online auction was started by eBay in March, and the company has since seen a huge spike in the number of buyers looking to bid on the virtual currency.
It was the first auction for a Bitcoin address on eBay and the first for a large-scale auction.
A large number of online vendors including a hotel chain and an auto parts supplier have also added the virtual cryptocurrency to their offerings.
The auction for the Bitcoin address was scheduled to begin at 11:59 p.m.
eBay has not yet revealed what exactly it was going to offer, though the company is expected to be offering it for about $50,000, or about a third of what it offered for the original Bitcoin auction.
The company said the auction would be open to anyone who has an account with the website.
