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 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.

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.

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.

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.

The site was known for allowing users to buy illegal drugs and criminal activities such as "murder for hire" anonymously online. The FBI said it has also seized approximately $3.6m (£2.2m) worth of virtual currency Bitcoin.

Many Bitcoin users are very angry and retaliating after the FBI seized their digital currency as part of its case against underground marketplace Silk Road. It seems that the FBI stole 26,000 bitcoins from users whom they aren't even sure of that they made illegal transactions with them. Here are some messages sent from Bitcoin users to the FBI: "Take the drugs, take the domain, but don't take the people's Bitcoins. This seizure was only legal because Bitcoin is not recognized as a currency," says one. Quoting Thomas Jefferson, one of the founding fathers of the US, one called for the end of the Federal Reserve: "The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs". "The musicians that made all that great music that's enhanced your lives throughout the years were rrreal fucking high on drugs," posted another, who use six separate payments to reference comic Bill Hicks. "The Beatles were so fucking high they let Ringo sing a few tunes." As well as a large number of pro-drug messages, some were arguing that the money was incorrectly seized. "Many items sold through Silk Road were perfectly legal," says one such note. "There is no way to know whether these funds were to be used for illicit purchases. What do you think about all of this?

The U.S. Marshals Service on Friday auctioned off about 30,000 bitcoins seized during a raid on Silk Road, an Internet black-market bazaar where authorities say illegal drugs and other goods could be bought. The Marshals Service has said it would notify the winning bidders on Monday. Silk Road was shutdown after an FBI raid in September 2013 as agents took control of its server and arrested Ross Ulbricht, who authorities said owned and operated the website. http://news.yahoo.com/u-auctions-30-000-bitcoins-silk-road-raid-232959831.html http://www.wochit.com

Ross Ulbricht, 29, allegedly ran an online black market called Silk Road.
Views: 50081 ABC News
The Silk Road was an anonymous marketplace created by Ross Ulbricht on the dark web. Designed on libertarian principles, Ross hinted on his LinkedIn profile what he was working on. Two technologies enabled Ross to achieve his goals with the website: 1. The Tor Browser: anonymous website use 2. Bitcoin: anonymous transactions * One of the key features of the website was the ability to leave reviews of sellers, which led to a fairer system than the street trade. Sellers did not want to risk losing business, so they could set the grade of their products. This also, arguably, protected buyers by reducing the risk of 'bad batches' and sellers cutting their products with other impurities, something is often seen in the street trade to increase profits. Ross created a pseudonym, Dread Pirate Roberts, to act as the master admin for the site and he claimed he passed this onto another person early on in the project. It was this pseudonym and master admin became the target of multiple law enforcement agencies, across the world. In October 2013, the FBI was able to access the servers and close down the website. Ross was apprehended in an uncover sting at the San Francisco Library on October 2nd and charged with 7 offences. On 4 February 2015, Ross was convicted of seven charges and received a double life sentence + 40 years, condemning Ross to spend the rest of his life in prison. The case presents many complex issues, from the harshness of the sentence to the role of the state. The subject is highly emotive with valid arguments on both sides of the drugs debate. Some argue that the war on drugs is a failure and the Silk Road enabled buyers and sellers to transact in a safe and non-violent way, while opponents would say that the website made it too easy for vulnerable people to gain access to dangerous and hard drugs. The case also brings up wider topics for discussion, should we as humans be free to put in our bodies what we choose or do we need protection from the state? Why is alcohol legal when other drugs aren't? The Silk Road included information for buyers on the safe use of drugs and Meghan Ralston, a former "harm reduction manager" for the Drug Policy Alliance, was quoted as saying that the Silk Road was: A peaceful alternative to the often deadly violence so commonly associated with the global drug war, and street drug transactions. Ross' lawyers have petitioned Supreme Court, asking them to review and reconsider the lower court’s decision, based on constitutional violations in the investigation and at sentencing. If the Supreme Court rejects this, he will essentially run out of options and will spend the rest of his life in prison. In this interview I talk to Lyn Ulbricht, Ross's mother about Ross, his arrest, the case and the US prison system. Lyn raises important questions around the harshness of the sentence and the growth in life sentences for non-violent crimes. Ross' arrest and incarceration has had a deep impact on Lyn and the rest of the family. Our interview takes place 27th March, Ross' birthday, and it is clear how worried she is about the Supreme Court ruling. Outside of the argument over sentencing, this is a mother who has effectively lost her son to the prison system. Her relationship with him is confined to family rooms at the prison and phone calls. She may never get to watch her son get married or have children and is spending her time fighting the case. Whatever your opinion, I encourage you to listen to this with an open mind. I also encourage you to read and research the facts of the case as there is so much misinformation out there. Peter * Note: Bitcoin is not entirely anonymous, the blockchain can be scanned and purchases tracked if a wallet can be associated with an identity.
