The FBI Owns the World’s Biggest Bitcoin Wallet

The bad news: The FBI has the biggest Bitcoin wallet on the planet. The good news: At least it's not the NSA. wink

The FBI now controls more than 144,000 bitcoins that reside at a bitcoin address that consolidates much of the seized Silk Road bitcoins. Those 144,000 bitcoins are worth close to $100 million at Tuesday’s exchange rates. Another address, containing Silk Road funds seized earlier by the FBI, contains nearly 30,000 bitcoins ($20 million).
