The prosecution’s story of “an exceptionally bright and smart kid” who grew up to become the criminal head of a global black market is in itself interesting enough to provide Hollywood with a half a dozen movies. But even if the government proves these allegations, this character arc would actually be one of the more normal and mundane things about this story.

Here are a few of the bizarre twists and turns in the investigation of The Dread Pirate Roberts, Silk Road, and Ross Ulbricht.

Who knows it might make a better movie than facebook and Zuckerberg with the winkevelli twins
I mean we have a planned murder and a hitmen, an undercover CIA officer posing as a help desk associate and a young bright drug dealer, this is the stuff that Hollywood movies are made of. Then Karpeles being the third wheel special side character that gets the sequel made after him  Grin (Like Van Wilder but without the whole college setting)
