The "Silk road" becomes a dead end road?

15.10.2013 um 18:17
The "Silk road", what a accurate name for the link to an online "Drug Bazaar" in the 21th century. But the "amazon for illegal things" was shut down by the FBI lately.

Silk-Road-009

Furthermore it's obvious that the "Silk Road" was just one of these hard-to-find e-commerce sites on the "Deep Web" that allegedly trafficked in drugs, guns, computer-hacking, money-laundering and even murder-for-hire. The deep web

silk road seized

Well, most propably, it was at least the most popular site, considering customers all over the world and their reviews, whom you can also read in the "normal" web.
In documents filed in U.S. District Court in New York, FBI agent Christopher Tarbell described 13,000 drug listings on Silk Road last month, including cannibas, ecstasy, prescriptions, psychedelics and stimulants, and others for firearms, anonymous bank accounts and hit men. One ad declared: "HIGH QUALITY #4 HEROIN ALL ROCK." Users paid with Bitcoins, an anonymous form of electronic currency widely used online. The FBI reportedly seized $3.6 million in Bitcoins after agents made 100 drug purchases through the website.

So, what I want to discuss is - Is the WWW or the deep web also the future for drug dealers, murders, arms dealers? Or is it even already their favoured way of "trading"?

Yes, it seems stupid, but it worked for 2 years and the FBI still tries to get the money consisting of bitcoins.

There are still a few other black markets, like the Black Market Reloaded. It's just another failed try to make a difference in the "drugwar".

Silkroad will be back, I bet they have a few mirrors already.

Did they busted the server or just the onion domain?

@CurtisNewton

Your mom would say: "wtf are BitCoins" and you would probably answer "I have no fucking clue...".

Please stay away from this thread if your posts stay like that.

I really don't know. The owner of the domain is arrested but I guess it would be hard to bust all servers. Even for the FBI?

I don't care if you interested or not, this is not the UH. change the quality of your posts or I will kick you out of this area.

@Banana_Joe

It seems that the FBI doesn't really know how the BitCoin sytem works. They think that, if they have his wallet, he wouldn't able to spend the money. Someone should tell them, that he just need a copy of his wallet. I want to see the faces if they crack the password and realize they spend all the time for 1 Mb of useless data.

I bet the site is back soon.

Finally people can't buy drugs on the evil internet anymore and have to go through their local drug dealer, like any upstanding citizen. War on drugs my ass.

Aren't they able to "freeze" the bitcoin money somehow? I confess, I really don't know the potential of the bitcoin system just as little

Don't let me lie, but I'm pretty sure that they have no control whatsoever. They need the hashes of the BitCoins as far as I know and these are encrypted.

So, if this is true, the future of crime, is also truly determined.

These markets aren't used for money laundry and drug deals just for fun ;)

But as I said there is still the BMR the second largest market I assume.

This is just like GEMA against streaming websites, bust one site, get some positive feedback and watch how 3 others appear a few weeks later.

Yes, you're right. I told a guy, who believes, he knows his onions, (concerning drugs and so on), about the shut down of the silk road. He looked very surprised because he never heard about it and he is no exception I guess. Drug users are obviously often too distracted to go deeper into the worldwide web. But when this rule will change generally , the drug market also will become a completely different functionality. The golden age of the digital era has not took place yet...

No that statement wasn't about drugs but a general statement concerning the digital age.
