Silk Road gone bye bye

Silk Road gone bye bye

Post by CHILLIN on Sun Oct 20, 2013 10:00 am

The big computer news last month was the F.B.I. finally cracking the Silk Road network. This was a two year effort. They were operating behind the bitcoin network - which is still growing but considered fairly legal. Silk Road was mainly an "Ebay" for drugs, paid for by bitcoins, buyers/seller were completely anonymous and untraceable. Bitcoins still remains on a Tor network, the so called "inner" web, but now with the right set of injunctions, they can track down individual accounts. The trouble is the international laws on this are very vague and extremely time consuming for the 100 to $10,000 dollar range transactions.
