although it does not sell that is related to pornographic or weapons content, it still harms the country. because of the illegal black market, illegal transactions run alone without state procedures and are vulnerable to not paying taxes. that is what is very detrimental to the country.

If silk road exists then bitcoin and other crypto will be use on there because it's tottaly decentralized and that's why cruminal can transect currency easily and nobody can't able to detect them.

This is what's included in the package of being involved in crypto currency. The ghost of the past will continue to haunt us even up to this day, due to the wrong doings of previous users of crypto currencies. Better days will come, as the future is already here.

Even I have heard that Silk road was behind the recent manipulation of market where we saw 100 million worth of Bitcoin getting dumped but I would like to see some evidence that proves that Silk Road was the culprit here. So far, I have only seen claims of people, blaming them but no concrete proof to say the least.

As I know Silk Road was an online black market and the first modern darkest market, which was known for selling illegal drugs. Later it has been closed for their illegal activities.

I think the Goldmansachs news is one of the main reason of the price drop. The price was dropped less than 24 hours and the coins were moved almost 2 weeks ago. Someone on Reddit started this guesswork. Hoping, the price will bounce up again very soon.

It is all just pure speculations as no one certainly know if the silk road was actually responsible or not and certainly there can be no proof of that. Over time, people have always wanted to find a reason for every market movement, but really, I do not see this market as respecter of news, as whatever is bound to happen based on the whales will happen anyway. As far as I am concerned, in a bear market, market can move down pretty fast, and whatever could have been the cause, there is still a lot of bear FUD in the market.

It may have been and it may not have been. One thing I am so certain of is that there is absolutely no way anyone can really tell how things would always turn out when it comes to a market and all that can just be done is to speculate this could be the cause of an up rise or a downtrend but whether this happened as a result of Goldman sach or not, it happened. Trying to find explanation of why a global market behaves in the way it has done is absurd to me.

Just because Silk road and similar black markets where illegal and criminal stuff were sold Bitcoin has come to the bad reputation at the first place.
I know there will always be demand for such services but that doesn't justify their existance as well as people who run such market.
Stil I don't think that activities on illegal markets influence price significantly in some way.

Probably, the price drop of the yesterday was because of the news of the Goldmansachs news and the panic about that. The price drop occurred less than a say ago and these coins were about moved almost 2 weeks ago. And all this started from a guesswork of someone on Reddit. Hope, the price will bounce up again.

Just because Silk road and similar black markets where illegal and criminal stuff were sold Bitcoin has come to the bad reputation at the first place.

That shows how easy to trigger people are to label everything as illegal or against the law just because their government said so.

I honestly don't mind black markets to exist. It's always a minority of the vendors giving the market as a whole a bad name. Good thing is that the level of moderation on these markets has increased, so the likeliness of being exposed to the extreme side of it has been reduced significantly. It's impossible to prevent completely which people have to bear in mind. Let's blame the people doing these bad things instead of the tools they use.

---

It's quite interesting to see how creative people are with finding all sorts of potential reasons as to why the price goes up or down, and yet they completely miss the point of why the market is actually heading down. The only consistent aspect of the market this year has been the contiuous lower high formation, which is perfectly normal during a bear market, but super difficult to grasp with how people don't acknowledge the market as it comes.

Every bump up makes people believe we are due for a recovery, but they have been proven wrong time on time again.

The Silk Road was a darknet market best known as a platform for selling illegal goods. It operated as a Tor hidden service to exclude traffic monitoring, which was convenient for criminals to deliver their services through the network. Silk Road was launched in February 2011 and already had 10,000 products for sale 70% of which were drugs by March 2013.

Although there were a lot of illegal products on the site, there were also restrictions: child pornography, stolen credit cards, assassinations, and weapons of any type were banned for sale and exchange. The site provided some legal goods as well, such as apparel, art, books, cigarettes, erotica, jewelry, and writing services.  

The Silk Road was shut down in October 2013 by the FBI, whose agents also arrested Ross William Ulbricht, the founder of the system. There were two attempts to recreate the Silk Road, but both of them have been unsuccessful. The latest news on the Silk Road promises no further attempts.

There have also been some reports that the current sharp price drop in Bitcoin and the entire crypto market is as a result of the 100,000 BTC that was allegedly dumped from a wallet associated with the Silk Road.

That you op for giving us this great understand and I believe we just need to keep our mind and heart encouraging by believing that the current market conditions will be a thing of the past.  Bitcoin is going to grow again and no matter the dumps by this group bitcoin will still recover.

You can say this is a condition that is not always in alarming scope, especially with prices that have lost a lot of the previous price, we are just waiting when we return to goodness, whether it may be in the next few months until the end of the year or we wait years new, believing that the market will again become a bull, this puts pressure on everyone's mind to surrender, but relent is not something good because future benefits await us.

Recently, a wallet was activated after 4 years with millions worth of Bitcoin in it and it was thought that, it belonged to Silk Road. That's it. No proper evidence at all. So, I am not buying it yet. I think there's more to the recent dump and Silk Road wouldn't have been able to manipulate the market on such a large scale.
