There may be network transaction costs. GSA will not hold an inspection day because there is no tangible asset up for bid.

On the market, there are eleven lots of cryptocurrencies, comprising 8.93 bitcoins and 150.2 litecoins. According to a document on the GSA's auction website, the litecoins were seized from a taxpayer for failing to pay internal revenue taxes.
