** An Insight to Silk Road – For Educational Purposes Only **
Imagine if there was a site like ebay where users could buy and sell Cocaine, Ecstasy LSD and other illegal substances. That is not possible right ? I guess that was the simplest explanation I could give to describe Silk Road an online black market.
[Update 09/12/2013] : Almost one week after this article was released, Silk Road has been seized after FBI arrested the owner of Silk Road, Mr. Ross Ulbricht aka “Dread Pirate Roberts”. Following that, “Atlantis” black market has closed. If the arrest of Dread Pirate Roberts was due to a security weakness in TOR networks or human error, is something that we will have to wait to find out.
