It is the same MK behind both schemes. For this reason, it is fair enough for the US Marshalls to distribute the auction proceeds to Mt. Gox victims.

Anyone who agrees with this idea should send a lawyer letter to US Marshalls and claim your loss back!

It would be even more fair not to shut down the Silk Road, and not to steal the customers' bitcoins.
They're going to come up with some justification to pocket the money.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

When your dope dealer gets popped before delivering your dope, tell the cops you want your money back.  Make sure 2 "send a lawyer letter" first, so they'll know you're insane a real badass who knows shit & not somebody to f8ck with.

You know, people also sold video cards, olive oil, fake sunglasses and watches (for those who can't afford the real thing).

I understand that 80% or more of the traffic were crack heads or something. However, there were some otherwise legit folks who lost coins on SR. Not drug dealers, not drug users (probably) - people who were using an open and free market to peddle things that they believed were worth something.

I'm not naive. We all know you would go to SR to buy meth (or whatever). I'm just saying that there were a minority of people who got pwned by the seizure. I feel especially sorry for that one vendor who sold encrypted devices. He made tons of BTC (and not a drop illegal)

If your drug dealer also sold olive oil when he got busted for dope, do you think the cops ask him "Sir, how much of this money was made in your legitimate enterprises, as opposed to sales of this shit crank?"  Would you demand, as an olive oil customer, that the cops refunded you your money?  How hard do you suppose they would laugh in your face?

As far as fake sunglasses and watches, those are illegal--that's why they were sold on SR instead of eBay.  That's why the d00ds on Canal street keep their shit in garbage bags & have a system of lookouts just like crack dealers used to.
So now you know.

The amount of sales/traffic for "legal" items on SR1 was much less then 80%,it was probably closer to 8% if that much.

The vast majority of the activity on SR1 was of illegal nature.

I really don't see the connection between the coins seized from SR and the GOX victims. They are two very different entities and IMO it is unlikely that the missing GOX coins were being held by Ross, nor silk road. Additionally it is likely that most of Gox's creditor's are not US citizens nor reside in the US so I don't see any reason why the US government would be giving that much money to foreign nationals who may have never even been to the US.

Your logic is very similar to that of Robin Hood

But wouldn't trying to claim your loss back mean that you were participating in illegal activity's
