I think that silk road is one of the main things that back bitcoin. With these improvements and the influx of new users. I can see a rally soon.

Here's the announcement post:

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Greetings everyone!  It has been some time since I have made an official announcement, and I am very pleased to be making this one today:  The look and feel of our beloved market will be transformed in just a few days time!

We have been working tirelessly to deploy many "behind the scenes" upgrades over the past few months that have vastly improved our security, flexibility and availability.  These advances aren't sexy, and don't get much fan fair, but hopefully you've noticed the site running smoothly even as our community grows.  This kind of work rarely get's acknowledged, so I would just like to applaud everyone on the Silk Road team that has put in the effort to make this possible.

But now, in just a few days, I will have the honor of rolling out a sleek new look that will be impossible to miss and I am sure you all will love.  I feel it matches the integrity and professionalism of our community and the robust technology that empowers it.  New comers will now have the confidence they need to take that leap of faith and make their first purchase.  My hope is that this day will be looked back on as one where we really came into our own and started a new chapter in our quest to stand up for our freedom and declare ownership of ourselves and our bodies.

So you aren't too surprised when the change comes next week, here's a little sneak peak at the new login screen:

When you see this, NO you are not being phished!

Much love to you all,

Where you see "illegal activity", I see people making voluntary transactions, harming nobody.

That's a bad translation. This forum is for speculation, and kentrolla speculates that much of the bitcoin economy is in drug trade, and that the SR redesign will attract more users to them and thus to bitcoin. It's not an endorsement of anything, it's a statement of belief in how things work. I don't think I agree with it, but then I don't agree with most things in this crazy subforum. No need to jerk your knees.

Crime is defined by what's in the law books.

So you changed your mind after posting and want to blame it on being "sarcastic", fine with me. I'm glad we agree now.

ty for this post. smoothie seems like he's out to get me or something.

@smoothie: where did i suggest promoting illegal activity? This is a speculation sub forum. Also, the black market is a ~10 trillion dollar market and bitcoin is perfect for it.  Like it or not, I speculate that bitcoin will be used more by criminals than by law abiding citizens.

The whole "bad press" argument doesn't make sense to me. ANY press is good press. I know i got into bitcoin because of an article about Silk Road. I thought to myself, "if criminals are accepting bitcoins for drugs then they must be worth something,"  so this influenced me to do some more research on bitcoin and i decided that it is a great idea and could be an awesome technology as long as people become aware of its benefits. So any press is good press because it spreads awareness.

And it's important to remember that not all criminals are violent.

In one place, this woman is a patient in a medical program.
In another, she is a criminal:

I think that SR is a great website and is for the good of humanity. IMO, the war on drugs is a lost cause. There should be no such thing as a "controlled substance."  But, after all, this is the speculation forum so I don't want to get in a debate about morals.
The main reason I think this upgrade to SR will spark a rally is because it might get some news coverage. Also, more people joining SR = more people discovering Bitcoin.
