Last time bitcoin jumped from 2 to 30 dollars and the news story was on some random website. Now this might even hit the news.

Silk road is a tor website so it's nearly impossible to take down and even if it happens, like the news story says someone will just open it again.

And remember plan B

Sure. Anything can affect the market price, but thats exactly the point. They don't control the market and the price, just affected by it
