  DPR sent a message to "redandwhite" stating that "FriendlyChemist"
    is "Causing me problems" and adding: "I would like to put a bounty on
    his head if it's not too much trouble for you. What would be an
    adequate amount to motivate you to find him?"
And then

    Later that same day, redandwhite send DPR a message quoting him a
    price of $150,000 or $300,000 "depending on how you want it done" -
    "clean" or "non-clean"

    DPR responded: "Don't want to be a pain here, but the price seems high.
    Not long ago, I had a clean hit done for $80k. Are the prices you
    quoted the best you can do? I would like this done ASAP as he is
    talking about releasing the info on Monday.

    DPR and redandwhite agreed upon a price of 1,670 Bitcoins - approximately
    $150k - for the job. In DPR's message confirming the deal, DPR included
    a transacation record reflecting the transfer of 1,670 Bitcoins to a
    certain Bitcoin address.

No surprise here from me. It was only a matter of time. Next phase will be selectively busting some users of silkroad after they come to the realization they have been buying drugs from the feds for the past year.

That was smart, now there's race on to find out how it was done and prevent it happening again then a dozen new sites will pop up to fill the market. The chain of dumping and ask wall building doesn't look like folks trying to sell out for the best they can get either :/

Doesn't that make sense? The people dumping were only using Bitcoin for SR and don't need them anymore.

Wouldn't it be more likely that the owner made a human mistake and got caught somehow?

From reddit:

Quote
It looks like they sniffed him out by looking back at old Internet records (forum posts, IPs etc) from around the time of SRs appearance. The first person to ever advertise SR was DPR himself, and he used an email account attached to his natural born identity. No NSA or technical hack.

Ouch. What a way to trip up.

Next up, finding Satoshi. Smiley

The part where he paid like 1500 coin to get someone hit in Canada and says he has done it before for 80K.

That creeped me out a lot. "I had a clean hit before for $80k before"... Wow.

Plus, its very creepy how he received a picture of the corpse of the canadian guy close to a paper with random numbers he provided.

Finally, the fact they found about him in this forum is the most creepy thing. His bitcointalk.org forum account "altoid" was the reason he got busted.

Don't police in the US usually sell the stuff they seize?

DPR and the users of SR were exchanging for fiat at some major exchange. Welcome to the looking glass Gox.

I hope his trial (if he gets one) get lots of media coverage. I mean, TV and all. This was no ordinary drug dealer, just read his quotes. It would be a good opportunity to tell all those truths on mainstream media. AFAIK, he has never hurt anyone, but he will probably end up serving more time in jail than rapers.

The problem is he destroyed his "good" reputation if he has been putting hits on people.

Don't worry, Ross will just give up all of his seller's info and be free to leave.  Tongue

Also, I guess this just means blackmarketreloaded will start getting more traffic.

Did this forum give up information via a court order? How does one extract IP information and possibly deleted posts with a normal account?

That is creepy. I didn't know that was happening. This guy definitely needs to go away.

Read the indictment. They are monitoring these forums (and much more), they looked how a guy called "altoid" mentioned SR very early on, he had registered that account with his real email (BTW, Theymos: how did they get the email through which he registered his btctalk account?). So they thoroughly monitored "Ross Ulbricht", and they realized he had the same interests of DPR - they wrote about the same books, liked the same videos... So they started to follow his moves... And they caught him.

They are watching.

I knew it was a human mistake... thanks for clearing that up, though I don't like the part where the information was extracted from the forum...

I wonder what will happen to all of those 3.6 million BTC that was seized.

>3M USD in BTC, not 3M BTC...

I hope you are right on this one. I wouldn't like the feds to have the power to dump 3m btc, 24k btc can't actually hurt the market...

Definitely. I wasn't aware of that.
