They could belong to anyone. All that person(s) has to do if file a claim and prove ownership.

Obviously no one including Ulbright himself attempted to claim them. Therefore, no claim of ownership so it goes to auction. There is a risk involved with claiming property that was involved with illegal activity. At no point were the owners of these bitcoins ever held back or hindered from officially claiming them. If you were doing nothing illegal, there is very little reason not to claim ownership.

This is standard procedure and has been this way for decades. No different then the local police confiscating stolen car stereos and iPads. If no one claims them, they are auctioned off.

Wait until you get a car from a local person that turns out to not have a good title- or was in an accident and reconditioned. Talk about stress.

You look at the title before you buy it. If you bought a car with no title or a recon, that was your own fault, anyone can EASILY avoid that situation with a 5 second look at the title. Unless the person forged the title but that is another issue.

That is the reason most ASIC miners are vaporware. When these specialized mining rigs are readily available and can be sent to your house in less than a week, their RTO will be questionable. This isn't like the California gold rush where you actually had to travel there, set up a camp and then start mining day to day while you also lived there. The actual mining was the work and although there was profit to be made selling the tools to allow other to do that, the tools needed were just a small part of the whole process. With ASIC miners, the tools and electricity do EVERYTHING, you just sit there.

You can't use the word Superbowl or even Super Sunday without the NFL wanting some money. People have been calling it the the "Big Game", although the NFL is now trying to trademark that term as well.

Unless you pay the NFL money, if the NFL has their way, we might have to call it
"that game that happens at the end of the season that determines the champion in the sport that uses the brown oblong ball in the US"

mobile bandwidth problems are not a myth, they are real for the end users. The actual problem might not be limited spectrum or a technology deficiency and maybe a carrier refusing to spend money to expand or upgrade but that does not change the fact that there is still a problem.
