#SILKROAD Letter To Judge + #BITCOIN Fever Pitch #CHINA

Bitcoin Fever Pitch in CHINA!

The letter to the Judge in the Silk Road alleged founders bail hearing; refused by the judge, due to the claimed assassinations, order or paid for, by the alleged founder of Silk Road, Ross Ulbricht. Drop your Xbox & PS4 a moment, and dip right in; fascinating insight.

For those well NOT up to speed:

"Silk Road is an online black market. It is operated as a Tor hidden service, such that online users are able to browse it anonymously and securely without potential traffic monitoring. The website launched in February 2011; development had begun six months prior.[6][7] Silk Road was an underground website,[8] sometimes called the “ of illegal drugs[9] or the “eBay for drugs.”[10]
Initially, buyers could register for free, but there were a limited number of new seller accounts available; new sellers had to purchase an account via an auction. Later, a fixed fee for each new seller account was chosen to mitigate the possibility of malicious individuals' distributing tainted goods.[11][12]
On October 2, 2013, the FBI shut down Silk Road.[13] They arrested Ross William Ulbricht on charges of alleged murder for hire and narcotics trafficking violation and identified him as the founder and chief operator "Dread Pirate Roberts".[2] On November 6, 2013 Forbes and Vice reported that Silk Road 2.0 was online and being run by former administrators of Silk Road and that a different user was now using the name Dread Pirate Roberts.[4][5]"

Note, from the final marketplace; now shut, too (temporarily):

"SR is down, The Black Flag ended up as a scam, Atlantis ended up as a scam and now The Sheep Market follows that dark path. This puts BMR in the edge of the blade, Tor can't support any site to be too big, Tor is all about community and you just keep anonymous as long as you can blend with the community. BMR can't be scaled up, Tor isn't a place for big enterprises, and can't hold another wave of refugees.

When SR went down I forgave that they spammed my forum and tried to contact the Sheep admin so we could cooperate in a way to balance the load between our sites, I got no reply which made me fear the worse, a suspect now to be confirmed as it seams.

Without competition the wisest thing to do is to shutdown the market, doing it in a timely and orderly manner.

An alternative would be to smash the market into tiny bits that could spread the load between nodes and servers, but that would take a while to do.

For now I'll ask the Support Team to not enact new sellers while watch closely what will go with Sheep, if things goes bad, I'm sorry to say that, but I'll have to retire the market at least until some reliable market come along so we can cloak each other. But I don't see who can that be, the best quality to seek in a market admin is the rare ability to control greed, and that's not easy at all, but who knows."
