Just a month after the original SilkRoad shut down, SilkRoad 2.0 has emerged in its place, according to VentureBeat. The new SilkRoad is helmed by a new Dread Pirate Roberts, and offers the same underground black market experience with added security to boot. Meanwhile, the old Dread Pirate Roberts, Ross Ulbricht, is in the middle of answering charges of drug trafficking, money laundering and hacking. But it shows that when it comes to Tor, one Dark Web resource will always rise in the shadow of an old one.
