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.
ANNOUNCEMENT: Silk Road is BACK ONLINE NOW as Silk Road 3.1 and open and trading all the goods you are looking for.
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.
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.
