    There was a recent raid on the "Dark Net", as documented e.g. here:

    Silk Road 2 seized in international dark web drug bust (Wired UK)

    From the article: Law enforcement officials found that he used a bitcoin exchange to cash out $273,626 between Silk Road 2's creation in November of last year and October of this year. About $70,000 of that money went towards a down payment on a $127,000 Tesla Model S."

    Hmmm, I'll have to check out the government auction on drug bust cars.

    I'm still stuck on the stupidity of naming the Silk Road replacement 'Silk Road 2'. Really? It's like waving a red flag. I understand the power of brand, but in this case might have been a mistake.

    I know. My darknet illicit auction site is named "Silk Road 3". Because it is one better.

    Note to FBI et. al.: I make this comment in jest. I do not actually run a darknet illicit auction site, or anything similar.

    Did it matter what it was named at that point? I think the hope was that the owner(s) wouldn't be found, not that no one would know it existed.
