* On Thursday, Chainalysis unveiled a program for storing and selling forfeited crypto in partnership with confiscated asset consultancy Asset Reality.
* The program will likely cater to many of the same government clients that already pay Chainalysis [millions of dollars](https://www.coindesk.com/inside-chainalysis-multimillion-dollar-relationship-with-the-us-government) annually to help trace illicit crypto transactions.
* Those investigations sometimes lead to agencies taking possession of eye-popping crypto sums. Just last week, the Department of Justice (DOJ) [announced it seized over $1 billion](https://www.coindesk.com/u-s-seized-more-than-1b-in-silk-road-linked-bitcoin-seeks-forfeiture-bloomberg) in [bitcoin (BTC, +1.85%)](https://www.coindesk.com/price/bitcoin) that Chainalysis software traced back to Silk Road.
* DOJ agencies unload their crypto on the public through semi-regular forfeiture auctions. These sales can raise tens of millions of dollars for the government.
* But the U.S. Marshals Service, which runs those auctions, [has been asking since April](https://www.coindesk.com/us-marshals-service-seeks-firm-to-custody-and-sell-crypto-seized-from-criminals) for a private-sector partner to help it manage and dispose of forfeited cryptocurrency. 
* Chainalysis representatives did not immediately confirm if its new partnership with Asset Reality was in response to the U.S. Marshals’ request.
