The list includes some surprising names.

U.S. Marshals want to sell off 30,000 bitcoins worth over $18 million that were confiscated in the late 2013 Silk Road bust. The fate of the money was once a mystery, but a new email, through a few mistaken CCs, allegedly leaks out a full list of potential buyers.

The full leaked list, as reported by Coindesk, includes:

The marshals have since apologized for the mistake in a follow up email, saying the list includes “some of the individuals who have asked a question or questions about the pending bitcoin auction.” The list, it seems clear, is only a partial representation of the interest in buying the coins.

If you’re looking to buy some of the Silk Road coins, you have until June 23rd to contact U.S. Marshals to do so. The auction will take place on June 27 and the results announced on June 30.

U.S. Marshals have not yet verified the emails at this point.
