The first-linked article tries to be negative when, in fact, all the stats he presents are a huge positive.  By definition, when you're a "very tiny little piece of a very big pie" (to use his words) then the only way to go is up.  He therefore makes a compelling case for growth in market share for Silk Road and, by extension, Bitcoin.  The exact same style "takedown" could've been written 15 years ago, replacing "Silk Road" by "Amazon" and "drugs" by "consumer goods".

When I use the word "higher" in a sentence I actually mean lower.
