Last month, the FBI was able to find and arrest Ross Ulbricht, the man behind Darknet ecommerce site (and popular online drug trafficking haven) Silk Road, and Wired has published a detailed post-mortem on how it all went down. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the raid on Ulbricht (along with nearly a dozen well-known Silk Road vendors) was a plan years in the making — built on the backs of smaller, low-profile arrests. And, it seems like they aren’t done: Law enforcement told Wired that they’re not only looking to take down more Silk Road sellers, but also those who offer Bitcoin currency conversion services as “unregistered money transmitters”.

    1. Yes the ANC are linked and may even be worse. Where else do the billion they steal go to.

    “Story posted at:” — Where, exactly? A link to the article in _Wired_ described here would be a very nice embellishment to Ms Hockenson’s summary of it. Or — if a hyperlink be impossible — how about disclosing the title?

    Heh she basically stole the title from the Wired story: http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2013/11/silk-road/
