Man in prison.
Ross Ulbricht, creator of the infamous darknet market Silk Road, has marked his five year anniversary behind bars.

Ulbricht began his double life sentence in October 2013 for developing and operating the infamous Silk Road darknet marketplace.

To mark the five-year timeline, Ulbricht’s supporters started a new project aimed at raising awareness of his story as well as the optimism of his ultimate release.

Five Years Passed, a campaign led by Ulbricht’s family and supporters, launched a new project that seeks to unveil in-depth and previously unheard details about Ulbricht’s case to the public.

The presentation is divided into six weekly episodes, with the first released for listening or reading on October 1. The rest of the episodes will be released throughout the month.

Silk Road, which was shut down after Ulbricht’s arrest in 2013, was an underground online marketplace that brought together sellers and buyers in a free-market system.

Most of the items offered were often illegal. To allow their clients to make purchases, Silk Road allowed the use of digital currencies, namely Bitcoin, therefore extending to establish the use of decentralized cryptocurrency.

In their statement, the family also outlined that the even though five years behind bars can often harden many, it is not the case for Ulbricht.

Over the period, he has remained a positive character and is a favorite with private staff and inmates alike.

In fact, he has maintained his non-violence and peace attributes, as shown by his recent act of refusing to participate in assaulting another inmate.

This weekly series seeks to put Ulbricht’s case in full perspective.

Silk Road 3.1 is Back Up

Enter DarkNet
Silk Road 3.1 has miraculously come back online. Will the great darkweb market flourish or flounder?

Yes, you heard this correctly, Silk Road 3.1 is back up and even refunding users lost bitcoins!

The main reason why the original Silk Road closed down in the first place was that the site’s fund transfer program was not working.

As such, many users supposed one of the mods had stopped maintaining the market, possibly subjecting to an exit scam.

However, the other two mods working on the Silk Road continued to work on a new market, named Silk Road 3.1. They have been trying to refund all of the lost funds.

There’s even an available form on the site where you can recover your lost funds if you prove your identity and provide the necessary evidence.

Furthermore, shortly after this announcement, another incident came along. Users’ funds were stolen after the site’s servers had been hacked. Most of the users were let down, and despite all attempts of the Silk Road to make a positive impression and gain a certain reputation, most of the people were frightened of the name of Silk Road 3.1.

The dark market community was truly divided on this topic. Many considered that the owners of SR3.1 pulled off a big exit scam. By extension, they also believed that the announcement of the hacking was an enormous lie.

Many considered that the owners of SR3.1 pulled off a big exit scam.

Still, many comrades believe that a third party was responsible for this incident and the owners of the Silk Road 3.1 were honorable members of the darknet market community.

After a certain time has passed, I am glad to tell you the Silk Road 3.1 is back up! Subsequently resolving some technical issues, the Silk Road market has risen again as of August 1.

The comeback of the Silk Road 3.1 brought much more obligations to the owners of this market—mainly showing their reliability and trustworthiness to the site’s vendors and buyers.

The ultimate goal is to prove their loyalty in order to win their previous users again. Every doubt any of the users has is justified and upheld, so all that is left for the Silk Road 3.1 and its owners is to confirm the market’s decency and correctness.

It is only a matter of time when Silk Road 3.1’s administrators will prove their dedication to their comrades.
