A Simple Question About Motive
The Feds just arrested the owner of Silk Road, a black market web drug marketplace, and seized the domain name.
Now, there are obviously a lot of reasons why they’d want to catch this guy. But I was struck by the headline at the above linked article:
Feds arrest the alleged founder of Bitcoin’s largest drug market
It makes you wonder…
Is this about drugs, or is this about fighting Bitcoin?
