Silk Road News
The now closed Silk Road website, an online black market, was known as the eBay or Amazon of drugs by its users. It famously ran as a Tor hidden service and accessed via an ‘onion’ address to help keep users anonymous. Silk Road was shut down in October 2013 with Ross Ulbricht alleged to be the founder. CoinDesk took an in-depth look at the Silk Road story, one year after it’s shut down.
