In his spare time, Gary started searching Google to try to find the mysterious mastermind behind the site: Dread Pirate Roberts.

The Silk Road: The Rise and Fall of the World's Largest Online Black Market
The Silk Road was the largest online black market ever to be created, offering services for drug trade and other illicit goods and services. While it wasn't the first, it did become the most well known black market by combining the anonymity of the Tor network and payment through Bitcoin transactions, with shipments coming to buyers right through the United States Postal Service. All of this came under the nose of state and federal law enforcement until September of 2013, when the FBI arrested the alleged mastermind and creator of the Silk Road. Follow this documentary of the rise and fall of the Silk Road, the largest online black market ever created. Learn how the FBI were able to eventually find and prosecute Ross Ulbricht, the alleged mastermind of the Silk Road, by using digital forensics and classic 'gumshoe investigation'. This video will also consider the ramifications of the Silk Road, and will examine what might happen next in the world of anonymous online black markets. All material for this documentary was directly sourced by the FBI affidavit and other online sources, forums, and interviews that were publicly accessible at the time of filming.

Silk Road Back Online After FBI Shutdown
Silk Road, a black market website, is up and running again after being shut down by the FBI back in October. In the two years that Silk Road was online, it made 1.3 billion dollars in commission. One of the big issues surrounding Silk Road is the suspicion over whether or not weapons are being sold through the site. Lissette Padilla and Elliot Hill wonder how Silk Road will effect the value of bitcoins, and if users will still be willing to use the site knowing the dangers associated with it, in this clip from the Lip News.

Silk Road drug market shut down by FBI, Bitcoins useless again
Bitcoins are amazing little pieces of nothing that, with enough of them, can be traded for ganja or used to put contracts out on your online enemies. Or at least they were useful for those purposes until the Silk Road was shut down yesterday. Ross William Ulbricht, or his online persona Dread Pirate Roberts, operated the deep web market where anonymity was a key feature. Want some high quality MDMA? Just send over dem bitcoins! MDMA turn out not to be so high quality? Then leave that seller a scathing review! I'll bet its the first time you were allowed to do that to your drug dealer! "RabbitHole88's tripple Benz tablets are crap CRAP! And they got all squished together, and he hasn't responded to my PMs! Don't waste your bitcoins on this unscrupulous drug dealer!" Of course, like every drug movie, what starts out as something good eventually turns into a blood thirsty kill fest where hard choices have to be made about which hit-man to click on. This one has more positive feedback, but this one's avatar looks like a ninja. When Dread Pirate Roberts started having problems with a subordinate, he sought out the help of some hired muscle to help sort the jerk out. But when he realized that intimidation might not work because his employee had done hard time before, he decided to just have him rubbed out. Lucky for the slouching employee, this particular hitman turned out to be an FBI agent. Tighter and tighter, the authorities closed in, eventually taking over the TOR server in another country where Silk Road was hosted. Then, yesterday, they finally struck, arresting Ross 'Dread Pirate' Ulbricht and loudly declaring, "All your bitcoin are belong to us!" -------------------------------------------------------- TomoNews is your daily source for top animated news.

FBI shuts down Silk Road after Indiana teen has drugs shipped to his family home
The Silk Road Anonymous Marketplace was shut down and its founder arrested, just 5 months after the Call 6 Investigators tracked a Fishers teenager's hard core drug purchases. The FBI said it brokered more than 100 undercover drug purchases just like this Fishers teen's experience.

Silk Road, Online Freedom, and Why the Prosecution of Ross Ulbricht Should Worry Us All
"I am fighting for my son," says Lyn Ulbricht, the mother of 30-year-old Ross Ulbricht, who faces life in prison as the alleged creator and operator of "Silk Road," an illicit online marketplace that was shut down by the feds last year. "But [this fight] is bigger than Ross, and I think one website is far less dangerous than the government trampling on our rule of law and the consitution." Ulbricht sat down with Reason TV's Nick Gillespie to talk about why she believes the government's case against Ross broadly violates his constitutional rights and threatens online freedom. For more on Ross Ulbricht and the government's case against Silk Road, read Brian Doherty's feature story in the December 2014 issue of Reason magazine, "How Buying Drugs Online Became Safe, Easy, and Boring:" http://goo.gl/eRjtJh Shot and edited by Jim Epstein; additional camera Anthony L.

Silk Road's Incredible Story (Internet Drug Marketplace)
Silk Road revolutionized the world’s drug market. The widespread adoption of bitcoin and the invisibility of the Dark Web allowed Ross Ulbricht -- a bright, but misguided 28 year old libertarian -- to suddenly become one of the world’s biggest drug kingpins. This is the story of the rapid rise and hard fall of Silk Road.

Stossel: Silk Road Founder Jailed, Drug Sales Up
People applauded when government shut down the drug website Silk Road. But online drug sales increased. ---- Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/reasontv Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magaz... Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason Subscribe to our podcast at iTunes: https://goo.gl/az3a7a Reason is the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines. ---- The FBI announced a big victory: they had shut down the illegal online drug market Silk Road. They said that would prevent drug sales and save lives. A judge sentenced Ross Ulbricht, a young libertarian who created the website, to double-life plus 40 years with no chance of parole. The judge called her sentence a "warning to others." Bill O'Reilly agreed, "Life in prison without parole. Any other wise guys want to do it, that's what you are gonna get!" But is it really fair to lock Ulbricht up for life? John Stossel interviews Lyn Ulbricht, Ross's mom, who says her son was just an overly-zealous libertarian who "believed in free markets and volunteerism. He's not a dangerous person." Closing Silk Road and locking Ulbricht up did nothing to stop drug sales. Silk Road carried 12,000 drug listings when the FBI shut it down. Now there are several sites carrying more than 100,000 listings. Stossel points out that as long as drugs are illegal, whatever the police do, only drives the price of drugs higher. The big profits then encourage sellers to take bigger risks. The same thing happened during alcohol prohibition. Police cracked down, but smugglers found a way. They also funded organized crime. Now drug prohibition funds crime, and authoritarians pretend the solution is long jail sentences. Jails are filled with people like Silk Road's creator, a smart libertarian nerd who said he wanted to "use economic theory as a means to abolish the use of coercion."

Run as an anonymous internet marketplace Silk Road openly sold drugs, advice on how to rob cashpoint machines, black market and counterfeiters' contact lists, guns, and hit men. The FBI described it as the internet's biggest criminal marketplace. "Silk Road has emerged as the most sophisticated and extensive criminal marketplace on the Internet today," FBI agent Christopher Tarbell said in the criminal complaint. The site was used by "several thousand drug dealers" to sell "hundreds of kilograms of illegal drugs," he said. The name named as Silk Road's owner is Ross William Ulbricht, 29, known online as 'Dread Pirate Roberts'. He was arrested in San Francisco . Ulbricht, who holds an advanced degree in chemical engineering, appeared in federal court on Wednesday and a bail hearing was set for Friday. More than 900,000 registered users of the site bought and sold drugs using the digital currency Bitcoin. In recent media reports about the growing popularity of Bitcoin, the Silk Road website has emerged as part of a darker side to the use of digital currencies.

Online Illegal Drug Marketplace 'Silk Road' Shut Down, Alleged Owner Arrested
The illegal online black market known as "Silk Road" had its doors fettered after federal authorities made an arrest Tuesday in a San Francisco library of 29-year-old Ross Ulbricht. Ulbricht is accused of running the illicit website, which reportedly allowed anonymous individuals, via the secure Tor browser, to buy and sell everything from marijuana and heroin to books and erotica. Ulbricht has been charged with money-laundering, narcotics trafficking conspiracy and computer hacking conspiracy. He is also accused of arranging a murder-for-hire, after a Silk Road user demanded half a million dollars or he would expose other users' identities, but the FBI does not have sufficient enough evidence to charge him or proof that a murder even took place. The Silk Road marketplace used Bitcoin as its currency and according to the FBI between February of 2011 and July of this year the site produced $1.2 billion in transactions, of which an estimated $80 million went into Ulbricht's pocket. Ulbricht hid his identity on Silk Road by using the online moniker "Dread Pirate Roberts," but he made a critical error in hiding his identity when he asked a question on Stack Overflow, a free website for programmers to have their coding related questions answered. Ulbricht used his real name for his handle, but one minute later realized his horrible mistake and switched it to "frosty." He also posed a question that piqued investigators interest when he posted, "How can I connect to a Tor hidden service using curl in php?" Those two pieces of evidence helped investigators connect Ulbricht to Silk Road. Considering Silk Road's "success" over the past two plus years and Ulbricht's need to continually evade detection from the authorities, he participated a great deal in social media. Using his actual name Ulbricht had a Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and LinkedIn account, with one YouTube video description even containing his phone number in regards to a truck he was trying to sell. This so-called mastermind is either the wrong guy or was so convinced no one was on his trail that he decided to set up public social media accounts with his true name just to feel normal or thumb his nose at the authorities. Why would Ulbricht risk losing not only his lucrative business but his freedom and entire life? sources: http://cnet.co/17sPdCR http://slate.me/1bw8OTr http://nyti.ms/15LAoaW http://onforb.es/173HQOU

Bitcoin Sees Shiny Future Despite Silk Road Tarnish
Despite its link to now-closed Silk Road, an anonymous Internet marketplace for illegal drugs like heroin and cocaine and criminal activities such as murder for hire, Bitcoin users think the controversy may help the internet currency grow into the mainstream. Supporters say using Bitcoins offers benefits including lower fraud risk and increased privacy, though critics argue the anonymity it offers makes the currency a magnet for drug transactions, money-laundering and other illegal activities. "The short answer of what is a Bitcoin is that it is the currency of the Internet. It's digital currency that people can use just like they use cash. Except they don't have to be right across the table from each other. They can be anywhere in the world. It's entirely borderless," explained Marco Santori, a business lawyer and Chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation's Regulatory Affairs Committee. Santori said although Bitcoin transactions are private, they are not completely anonymous. "People who really know the technology, they refer to it as 'pseudonymous'. So transactions are not anonymous. They can be private in that you might not know who you are transacting with on the other side of the world, but everybody in the world knows you made that transaction," said Santori. On Wednesday (October 2), The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced it shut down "Silk Road," and arrested its alleged owner, Ross William Ulbricht, 29, known online as "Dread Pirate Roberts," in San Francisco. The site, which has operated since early 2011, also offered tutorials on hacking ATM machines, contact lists for black market connections and counterfeiters, and guns and hit men for sale, according to the charges. More than 900,000 registered users of the site bought and sold drugs using the digital currency Bitcoin. In recent media reports about the growing popularity of Bitcoin, the Silk Road website has emerged as part of a darker side to the use of digital currencies. Santori said it is a mistake to try to use Bitcoins to hide criminal activity. "It's a terrible tool for money laundering. And it's a terrible tool for criminal activity either. Now that the Silk Road has been shut down, I think that people have really telegraphed their confidence in that statement. Without the Silk Road, people still want Bitcoins. Even without the Silk Road, it's more expensive now to get a bit coin then it was before. I think people saw Silk Road as real weight on the leg of Bitcoin moving toward mass adoption and now that's been released." While Bitcoins, which are not backed by a government or central bank, have begun to gain a footing among some businesses and consumers, they have yet to become an accepted form of payment on the websites of major retailers such as Amazon.com. And like paper money, Bitcoin is a regulated currency. "Bitcoin is in fact heavily regulated. It is very heavily regulated. Those who exchange Bitcoins for other digital currencies or exchange Bitcoins for dollars are money transmitters under the Bank Secrecy Act. And so they have to register with the federal government, report suspicious activity, record, collect and verify and under some circumstances customer information, just like a bank does," said Santori. Bitcoin fees are lower than most bank fees, which makes it attractive to many consumers. Fees charged by Bitcoin firms are typically far less than those charged by banks, credit card companies or other online payment processors. Coinbase charges merchants a 1 percent fee to convert Bitcoin into local currencies, but is currently waiving it for the first $1 million (USD). Atlanta-based BitPay charges a flat 0.99 percent fee. The firm, which has raised $2.7 million, said over 10,000 approved merchants in 164 countries use its platform to accept Bitcoin payments. "Really, I see a future, not too far off, where people really have a meaningful choice in currency. They have a choice in the way that they transact. They don't have to have.. They don't always have to send dollars or some derivative of a dollar. They can send a Bitcoin," added Santori. With the arrest of Ulbricht, the FBI is now the latest holder of Bitcoins. According to the charges against Ulbricht, Silk Road generated sales of more than 9.5 million Bitcoins, roughly equivalent to $1.2 billion. There are currently about 11.8 million Bitcoins in circulation. With Ulbricht's arrest, authorities said they seized $3.6 million worth of Bitcoins.

The Truth About Ross Ulbricht's Appeal
FreeRoss.org - As someone who loves bitcoin and voluntary trade, Ross’ case really resonated with me. The bottom line is he didn’t get a fair trial, but there’s hope. There’s a bottomless pit of shocking facts that have come out since the arrest in 2013, but I’ve narrowed it down to only the most critical things you and absolutely everyone around you must know about the Ross Ulbricht case. From Day 1, the Feds bent over backwards to prevent the facts from coming forward. Ross has been accused of hosting an honest website, but nothing was honest about the depiction of the silk road in court. Judge kept out all knowledge of bitcoin. The gov't withheld crucial information related to the investigation of the agents through a secret grand jury process in San Francisco, and argued that his client was deprived of a fair trial. Former Secret Service agent Shaun Bridges confessed that as part of the team investigating the Silk Road anonymous drug market he had secretly stolen around $800,000 worth of bitcoins from the site and placed them in his own account. Carl Force investigated the Silk Road drug-trafficking as part of a Baltimore-based task force. Force took on additional personalities that weren't authorized by his bosses. Using one called "Death From Above," he tried unsuccessfully to extort Ross Ulbricht, who earlier this year was convicted of being Silk Road boss Dread Pirate Roberts and sentenced to life in prison. In another online persona, "French Maid," Force convinced Ulbricht to pay him for "law enforcement counter-intel." Information about Force and another corrupt agent was kept out of Ulbricht's Silk Road trial. Force was arrested after that and pled guilty in June. That murder for hire charge? It’s not a thing. Brought up during sentencing to justify double-life sentence, but he’s never been convicted on that charge. Even though it’s been sitting idle for years, they haven’t prosecuted it at all -- you would think this would be the far worse crime than running a website! Ross is a caring, compassionate guy. He’s helping tutor fellow inmates so they can get their GEDs. That’s the kind of guy he is. In fact, no victims came forward during Ross’ trial to say he had hurt them in any way. It didn’t stop online drug trade. Ross Ulbricht made the Silk Road and opened the door to the dozens of marketplaces where people can have pot and other fun things delivered safely to their house as easily as shopping on Amazon. Even though he didn't hurt anybody, Federal agents kidnapped him and threw him in a cage for a double life sentence to send a message to the rest of us. Silk Road Gave Bitcoin Life Use of bitcoin clearly correlates with the rise of the silk road’s popularity Silk Road is still the most common association people have in their minds when they hear about bitcoin Bitcoin hit its all time high since 2014 today, and it’s there today and growing in part thanks to the start it got on the Silk Road. It’s been over a year since Ross’ sentencing to double-life Totally unbalanced punishment vs crime The only right thing to do is set him free now It’s gotta be costing them hundreds of millions of dollars so far For running an honest website? Whether Ross made the Silk Road or not, websites like it are doing good for the world War on drugs is bad Silk Road gives way around prohibition Alcohol kills far more people a year but pot is illegal. Pot is the most common thing sold on the Silk Road. By far! It’s impossible to serve two lifetimes Totally political life without parole went beyond even the prosecution’s request that the judge impose a sentence “substantially above the mandatory minimum.” In fact, the Southern District of New York, where Ulbricht’s trial occurred, has a reputation for relatively lenient sentencing, with around 75 percent of cases receiving less than federal sentencing guidelines. Ross didn’t get a fair trial. I have so much hope for this appeal! When the facts are put before the jurors, I believe they will instantly do the right thing and set Ross free. Ross is a hero and political prisoner of the drug war. At worst, he ran an honest website. At best, he opened the door to a peaceful marketplace where prohibition had once been. He should be honored and rewarded, and free. Larger impact of the case is that if people accept the results of the case as it stands, they have no internet freedom. If someone can be arrested for what other people do on a website you host, there’s no free speech. So we can’t let that stand. And the next biggest impact is that we can’t allow the filthy feds to claim the moral high ground in the war on drugs. They’re not just causing victims, they’re doing unthinkable harm to individuals and we can’t let that stand either.
