Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht is in his seventh year behind bars. His mom Lyn continues to campaign for his release, despite rough odds and no visitation rights during coronavirus.
The convicted operator of the Silk Road dark market has given up his claim to over $48 million raised after the sale of more than 144,000 bitcoins.
New charges have been filed against a former Secret Service agent previously plead guilty stealing bitcoins during the Silk Road investigation.
