ANNOUNCEMENT: Since the Silkroad 2.0 bust by the feds a few other Darknet Markets have fallen. The best Darknet Market available is the Agora Marketplace. It has the best reputation and a bigger selection of goods than Silkroad 2.0.
Deep Web is a documentary film that has been created by Alex Winter. The documentary explores in detail the darknet marketplace Silkroad that has been closed down by the feds and the arrest of the Silkroad founder, Ross Ulbricht. The EPIX original documentary, unveiled at Montclair Film Festival, is scheduled to be premiered on May 31, 2015.
The documentary gives an inside look into this century’s most gripping digital crime saga; the arrest and conviction of the 30-year-old entrepreneur Ross William Ulbricht who created and operated Silkroad, an online black market, under the name “Dread Pirate Roberts”. The film on Silkroad also explores as to how the thought leaders and brightest minds behind the online black market and bitcoin are now caught in a legal tangle.
In addition, the “Deep Web” features the core architects of the deep web; anarchistic cryptographers who developed tools for the military during the early 1990s; the dissident whistleblowers who sought refuge in this environment which seemed to be secure initially; and others who contributed a great deal to the meteoric rise of Silkroad, which skillfully combined the deep web’s security with the cryptocurrency bitcoin’s anonymity.
Ross Ulbricht’s parents continue to fight for his release, saying that he was not only denied defense, but also not allowed to present certain witnesses in the Silkroad case. In the documentary, Lyn Ulbricht, Ross’ mother, talks about the miscarriage of justice that is going on against the supporters of the dark net and how the Prison Industrial Complex, War on Drugs, and annihilation of online privacy has colluded to imprison her son. The documentary also explores the future of the dark net.
