FBI Arrests 29 Year Old Mastermind Of Billion Dollar Internet Drug Blackmarket

By  |  88 Comments

If you want to buy a book online, at this point pretty much everyone goes to Amazon.com. Right? If you want to buy shoes? Zappos. Domain name? Godaddy. An 18 year old Brazilian girl’s virginity? eBay. A one way flight to Brazil? Kayak. But where do you go if you want to anonymously buy illegal drugs like heroin, cocaine, meth, molly, LSD etc… all from the privacy and comfort of a web browser? Well, up until 3:15pm on Wednesday October 2nd, for all these illicit purchases and more you could have gone to a website called SilkRoad.

What happened Wednesday at 3:15pm? After months of painstaking investigation, the FBI swooped in and arrested the long sought-after mastermind of this highly illegal anonymous drug marketplace. Who was this mastermind? Was it a secretive Russian hacker living in Moscow? A Chinese internet tycoon operating from a private yacht in international waters? Actually, it was a 29 year old American named Ross Ulbricht who operated most of his empire out of a San Francisco coffee shop. When he was arrested, he was actually using the free wifi at a public library.

This story is long, but completely insane, totally worth reading all the way through. In case you need some teasers, this story involves billions of dollars worth of drug transactions, an enormous illegal fortune made entirely out of Bitcoins, fake passports and even a couple of hitmen.

Ross Ulbricht - Virtual Drug Kingpin

SilkRoad was founded in 2011 as an underground marketplace where internet users could buy, sell and trade illegal drugs anonymously. The reason it worked was because SilkRoad required every potential buyer and seller to use a routing service called Tor. When someone uses Tor, their IP address (geographic location) is encrypted several times over then routed all over the world to dozens of locations. Using Tor, someone could be sitting in Los Angeles but would be tracked as a zipping line that appears then disappears from one location to the next instantaneously. Tor was originally invented by the U.S. NAVY to help mask top secret messages. It has lots of legitimate uses like maintaining a journalist’s anonymous sources or keeping a business meeting extra private. Unfortunately, Tor is also perfectly suited for keeping illegal transactions totally untraceable and anonymous. That’s where SilkRoad came in and thrived.

Silk Road Before Being Shut Down

When it was up and running, there wasn’t much of a difference between SilkRoad and eBay or craigslist. It was a website where buyers and sellers met to exchange money for goods and services. The main difference, aside from the fact that most of the products being listed were illegal, was that on SilkRoad you couldn’t simply charge a credit card or use your paypal account to complete the transaction. Instead, users traded Bitcoins. What’s a Bitcoin? That question alone probably deserves its own dedicated article on CNW, but for now all you need to understand is that Bitcoin is a completely anonymous virtual currency. The most recent value of a single Bitcoin was right around $130. So that means if you wanted to buy $250 worth of cocaine on SilkRoad, at today’s price you would need to own at least two Bitcoins.

I love my fed-ex guy cause he’s a drug dealer and he doesn’t even know it…and he’s always on time.” – Mitch Hedberg.

Actually, SilkRoad preferred the US Postal Service over Fed-Ex, but the late great comedian Mitch Hedberg was clearly way ahead of his time with that classic line. So you’ve just spent two Bitcoins to buy $250 worth of cocaine. How were these drugs delivered? Simple. The seller would vacuum seal the package then ship it through the USPS, likely with a false return address. Ironically, the Federal government was a drug dealer and they didn’t even know it… for a while. SilkRoad would make money by taking a 10% commission on every transaction. It has been estimated that prior to being shutdown, SilkRoad was responsible for more than half of the daily trading volume of Bitcoins around the world.


It turns out, the FBI had been trying for over a year to unmask the mastermind of SilkRoad who they only knew by the internet handle “Dread Pirate Roberts“. The FBI spent thousands of hours scouring the internet trying to find traces of his potential real identity. Unfortunately for “Dread Pirate Roberts”, this internet mastermind made a few very crucial errors. First off, he accidentally used his real name and personal gmail address on at least two occasions when posting in online forums to ask questions about working with Tor and to advertise SilkRoad. The FBI was then able to subpoena some very valuable information from Google and another technology firm that ran what is called “VPN” software which was supposed to help keep Ulbricht anonymous. Through these subpoenas, the FBI was able to piece together that the vast majority of SilkRoad’s operations were being run out of a coffee shop on a quiet San Francisco street. Agents then began to track Ulbricht back and forth to the coffee shop.

Here’s where the story gets completely insane: According to the indictment documents filed today in New York, the FBI was able to determine that over the last two years, SilkRoad processed $1.2 billion dollars worth of transactions. In other words, 9.5 million Bitcoins have flowed back and forth between SilkRoad buyers and sellers. What does that mean for Ross Ulbricht personally? Over that same time period, the FBI determined that Ulbricht collected some 600,000 Bitcoins in the form of his commission. How much are 600,000 Bitcoins worth? At today’s closing price, $78 million. At yesterday’s closing price? $90 million (the price of Bitcoins dropped sharply in the wake of Ulbricht’s arrest). When Bitcoins hit an all time peak value in April 2013 of $266 per coin, his virtual collection was worth $160 million. To give you some idea of how insane the market for Bitcoins has been recently, in the fall of 2011 when SilkRoad was founded, a single Bitcoin was worth just $2.

Just to re-iterare: 29 year old Ross Ulbricht earned nearly $80 million in commissions for maintaining and operating SilkRoad over the last two years. Here’s a screenshot of his LinkedIn page:


And the story gets crazier: As if operating a billion dollar illegal online narcotics marketplace wasn’t bad enough, the FBI alleges that Ulbricht hired at least two hitmen over the last 12 months to murder people who were threatening SilkRoad and his own personal anonymity. He didn’t know it at the time, but Ulbricht was already being closely watched by the FBI when he used $150,000 worth of Bitcoins to order a murder from a hitman he met online. The target was a former SilkRoad employee called “FriendlyChemist” who was threatening to release the identities of 5000 SilkRoad users in addition to outing Ulbricht as the mastermind of the whole operation unless he received a one time payment of $500,000. Just listen to the morbid online exchanges between Ulbricht and one of the hitmen, this all went down just seven months ago, in March 2013:

In my eyes, FriendlyChemist is a liability and I wouldn’t mind if he was executed… I have the following info and am waiting on getting his address…[He] lives in White Rock, British Colombia [with a] wife + 3 kids.

The hitmen responded with a quote of: “$150,000 to $300,000 depending on how you want it done, clean or non-clean

To which Ulbricht responded: “Don’t want to be a pain here, but the price seems high. Not long ago, I had a clean hit done for $80k. Are the prices you quoted the best you can do? I would like this done ASAP because he is talking about releasing the info Monday.

Finally Ulbricht accepted the $150,000 price and on the night March 31st he received the following message from his hitman: “I received the payment… We know where he is. He’ll be grabbed tonight. I’ll update you.

And 24 hours later another message from the hitman: “Your problem has been taken care of… Rest easy because he wont be blackmailing anyone again. Ever.

It may further shock you to know that Ross Ulbricht wasn’t sending these chilling execution orders from a dark room in a palatial San Francisco mansion. The FBI determined that when he wasn’t operating from the library or his favorite coffee shop, Ulbricht was working out of a three bedroom apartment he shared with two roommates directly across the street from the coffee shop. Those roommates knew him as “Josh”, the friendly computer programmer who paid his $1000 a month rent every month right on time, in cash. Remember, the guy was worth $80 million and simultaneously operating a business that rivals many Fortune 500 companies.

One final strange twist to this case occurred back in July 2013. FBI agents received a huge break when Canadian border control randomly chose to open and inspect a package that ended up containing several fake passports and IDs all for the same person, all addressed to Ross Ulbricht in San Francisco. Homeland security visited Ulbricht shortly thereafter with the help of the FBI. Ulbricht claimed to have no clue why or who would send him those fake IDs. Incredibly, he even used SilkRoad as a defense by claiming that hypothetically anyone could order forged identity documents “on a website called SilkRoad“.

When FBI agents arrested “Josh”, AKA “Dread Pirate Roberts”, on Tuesday, it was 3:15 in the afternoon and Ulbricht was quietly working away at his local branch of the San Francisco public library. Today his funds are being seized and SilkRoad has been shut down completely. Ulbricht faces a slew of very serious charges including attempting and possibly succeeding to commit two murders. Finally, we’d like to officially announce that from on you can buy all your drugs on CelebrityNetWorth! Kidding.

    Well if this crap wasn’t illegal he would have had to hire said hitman, and the person who blackmailed him wouldn’t have had leverage. This would not exist if the government felt it had to make drugs illegal. Sure drugs are bad, people know this. But making it illegal just makes it worse.

    • http://joestauffacher.com/ Joe Stauffacher

      Well stated. I’d like to add to your perspective, the article is propaganda for others to recreate the website, fear so that people give away their security to allow government to access online information, and it’s a way to attempt to devalue the bitcoin… it’s been two days since this published and Bitcoin’s price only dropped one day Oct 2nd.

      It’s important to defend internet security, and the masses changing currency to a bitcoin might be a terrific way to fight the battle of corporations and government control. Land of the free where we imprison the most, the world police indebting the civilians of other countries into debt slavery, and a once republic now with the legal system backing the president as dictator. Something needs to change.

    • disqus_tYtAv8EISI

      “Well if this crap wasn’t illegal he wouldn’t have had to hire said hitman” – oh right hahaha I guess that makes his case totally reasonable doesn’t it? that’s a really smart argument omg you just totally turned around my perspective wow wow wow do you have any more really smart things to say because I would love to hear them

      • lisajh

        Well he would have to to protect himself from getting caught, lot of good that did anyway. It’s sad that someone had to die, because he didn’t want to get caught. But the point is, if he didn’t he may have got caught sooner, right. Everyone looks out for themselves and if there is anything that shows like Breaking Bad has taught us is that we will do a lot of things to protect ourselves from getting killed, going to prison etc. I’m not saying it’s right, I’m just stating the truth of the situation. But I suspect your a troll.

    • Bob Sutherby

      Umm, are you justifying two murders by saying he “had to” hire a hitman? Nowhere along the way was that necessary. He could’ve paid off the snitch instead of bumping him off. $500,000 payoff compared to many millions. If I were in his position, I wouldn’t have been so damn greedy.

      • lisajh

        I am justifying his murders yes, his reasoning for them. Murder is more effective then buying someone off. There is always the human factor. No where along the lines did I say I’d do this. I haven’t done anything illegal for that simple fact, I don’t want to go down that rabbit hole. Short term gain is not worth the long term pain.

      • wanderlust

        Maybe threatening wealthy drug kingpins isn’t such a smart move, so no, I don’t really feel badly for the victims of the hit…

        • BayAreaGuy

          First of all, it’s “feel bad.” “Feel” in this case is a state of being, not an action.

          Second, I think all these years of watching “Dexter” and “The Sopranos” has rotten the part of your brain that allows you to think clearly about moral issues. If a grown man pokes a tiger, I have a hard time feeling sorry for him when it attacks. But that’s only because the tiger has no sense of right or wrong; he’s just acting by instinct. If a grown man threatens a drug “kingpin,” it may be a stupid move that I can criticize, but it hardly removes the expectation of morality on the part of the “kingpin.” Nor does it negate the consequences of his actions when/if he gets caught.

          • talbreth

            The verb in the sentence, “I feel badly.” is feel. Badly is an adverb and was used correctly.

            I think lisajh made the best point on this matter when she pointed out that he kept collateral damage to a minimum. While I agree that two murdered people is two too many, people get murdered over a couple of crack rocks every day. He managed to oversee billions in drug transactions and only had to whack two people. Hell, he probably saved a few lives that would have been taken by those two kingpins.

          • wanderlust

            It amuses me how as you correct my slip-of-the-iPhone-keyboard, you make your own grammatical mistake with “rotten your brain”. “Rotten” is an adjective, not a verb, and the past participle of “rot” for the present perfect is “rotted”, as in, “rotted my brain”. Yes, quite rotten, it seems.

            It’s good to know you have such high moral expectations for criminals. Just like the tiger from your scenario, there should then be a certain level of danger expected from the situation, and prediction of outcome. Attempt to extort someone heavily involved in a dangerous illegal activity? Perhaps not a great idea, since he might just kill me so he doesn’t have to worry about someone coming back for more (reasonable expectation). These types of situations exist in a morality vacuum.
            He deserves to be punished for the killings, yes. Do I feel that they were innocent victims? No.

          • Tom

            Don’t critique someone’s grammar/spelling if you’re going to make just as many typos.

          • Delno_Rutherford

            Gud Moornin, Inspektor Gramma :)

          • meesa

            lol dexter and sopranos? are you really blaming TV? you think before television the world was perfect and didnt have these types of problems? ofcourse it did and they are no worse now than they were, infact they are probably better now than before, you dont see five different mafia families all out to kill each other tearing up american suburban households lol, seriously, get your head out the gutter, great shows, neither made me feel like i wanted their lives.

          • Mo

            You are expecting a drug-lord to have some sense of morality? I think that ship has sailed the moment he got into this business.

          • Alex D-nd

            bro wtf are you talking about bro, if you dont like the heat get out of the kitchen. they are selling drugs, my instinct would be fuck going to jail. my instinct tells me to kill this mother fucker bc even if i pay out, i might have to pay out other niggas, people start to extort you then whats all the risk for. since its a black market anything goes, they’re is no sense of morality. Morality is counterproductive to money, its oil and water. so wtf are you talking about bro. leave the bible sermon at church, yea when you get hit you accept everything but while your in the game you have to keep playing even when it mean you have to take care of business.

          • disqersor

            Fuck man, this isn’t English class. If you can understand what someone says then please, don’t correct them it’s so pointless. I mean does it make you hard or something? Let me explain please.
            If any illegal activity included true morals, people wouldn’t die as frequently in the world we are living in today. I’m not talking about kingpins, I’m talking about unfair laws, corruption of laws, and perspective of laws. I make it plural because not everything requires in the least bit, common sense; it just depends on what you perceive to be as common. Legal action is more or less disrupted by not agendas, but pre-determined situations. I can’t classify myself as a liberalist, but individualist. My point of view is that there is an underworld or illegal existing law, and a common people’s or legal existing law. The problem here is so many people have an opinion of whether legal or illegal action should be taken. If ‘Snowden’ went to the wrong people to discuss legal matter that is ordained to the public as illegal matter, primitive action would be taken against both parties, but who has more power? The government. The government makes those decisions in which change our way of living. The FBI, the FBI, the FBI. Have you ever had someone bust into your house because someone has shipped illegal cocaine to it? I have. You don’t want to know my background. (It’s just unnecessary) I argue that the Kingpin was right in his action actually, because his counterpart wanted to forcibly threaten his illegal activity in a legal matter. So what does he do? he keeps things in his own world. It’s fair considering his counterpart was at one time a consultant, partner, or part of illegal operation. So he had to be dealt with on their own terms. If, however you don’t meet quotas, agendas, and the end all to this kind of operation you must face consequences. But who will face them? the legal or illegal? ‘Rats’, let’s say, get away with so much. In what world though? The legal or illegal world? and think outside of drugs when applying this too. The legal world and illegal world play a part in both operations. Tit for Tat. The legal world would never snitch on one another. That’s real as shit. and it’s fucking rare. Drugs are an Oxymoron type of conflict itself. How was it created? How about crack even? Cocaine is natural. both kill, Cocaine can’t shoot up our arm.. but crack can. This is my sociology major at its start, at its finest. Im not a drug investigator, but you have to take into account for everything. but the legal doesn’t see it as how more like, you did, you said, this is it….. now explain yourself or your excuses. how well can you fit this into OUR legal system. But most people are selfish anyways, so whos court system is it really anyways… and how selfish could one person be? that question could never be answered honestly but, id say its about money. all this shit. That’s some explanation for that ass. also, the guy that asks for money could be trying to hit him, or forcibly buy a hit man with the first amount of money the kingpin gives him.

          • BayAreaGuy

            I don’t know which is more pathetic, the fact that you think good English is limited to being in an English class, or the fact that you felt the need to write a fucking dissertation in response to my post. Morons like you should be banned from the Internet entirely.

      • Jasonwang6594

        It was an FBI guy pretending to be a hitman and victim. Classic entrapment.

        • Bob Sutherby

          I don’t get how you came to that conclusion. According to the FBI claims, they were “closely watching” Ulbricht when they caught him setting up the hit on FriendlyChemist.

        • Val!

          Could be, they do shit like this all the time to bring otherwise harmless ppl down. It’s disgusting. DEA?

        • Mitch Kohl

          Entrapment? Really? In criminal law, entrapment is conduct by a law enforcement agent inducing a person to commit an offense that the person would otherwise have been unlikely to commit. This would mean that for it to be entrapment, the government would had to force him to contact the hit man. Next, the exchange between the two was voluntary and in no way was that forced. So, next time, understand the law first. Just because the government is involved does not make it illegal or immoral. What this guy was doing was horrible and in no way can the government be blamed because drugs are illegal How does that make sense? That it is their fault he decided of his own free will to break the law and have at least one if not two people killed? Wtf is wrong with you people?

      • Jason Andrew Hahn

        Guess he didn’t believe it was going to be a 1 time payment

    Plot twist :staged his own arrest to avoid being bumped off by hitmen and to sell valuable info to FBI, DEA in a plea bargain+WPP deal. That’d be a masterstroke tho.

  • jarenolds

    I’m not sure that his attempt to experiment with “abolishing coercion and aggression among mankind” worked. As he had two people killed. Maybe he want to abolish it unless he needs it to get his way, kind of like everyone else.

  • Roy Wright

    This seems a bit far fetched, if the nsa etc can spy so well then this guy would never had gotten off the ground.

    • Gah Gahderson

      One giant misconception about information technology is that the government has the edge in all encryption/code cracking. They are able to spy on people so easily due to cooperation with the corporations that build consumer grade devices or write software for them. The NSA doesn’t necessarily have the best hackers in the world working for them, they just have the capital and control they need to get in cahoots with companies such as Verizon, Facebook, Intel, etc. In short, the NSA didn’t crack the security on your phone/PC/whatever to spy on you, they simply used their governmental power to obtain the algorithms from the corporations that wrote them in the first place.

      • Private draken

        Which blows my mind why Osama used a courier instead of TOR to deliver messages :|

  • Gah Gahderson

    Contract murder (murder in general) is absolutely wrong, and there should be serious consequences attached to actions like that. However, running a website where people can purchase drugs which are otherwise unavailable doesn’t really seem that bad to me. So long as people are decently educated as to what they put in their bodies, who cares? It’s just like these thousands of Americans who do the same with fast food or cigarettes, and nobody calls them criminals. Poisoning yourself for your own enjoyment should not be illegal. Not to mention, the drugs the government does allow are often significantly more dangerous than the ones they outlaw. Contrary to popular belief, authority is not the same thing justice or righteousness.

  • Darpan Hegde

    He hoped to make enough money so he could experiment on his new paradigm of a world without force! I have no clue how he planned to do it though. The money and drugs were never the motive as he was still content living in a shared apartment and working in a coffee shop. Paying the blackmailer was never an option because it would risk encouraging him to repeat it, or worse : encourage others to follow the same way.

  • Andre Buxey

    Very interesting story!

  • JC Therese

    haha, scumbaggg. clever though.

  • meesa

    Ill say one thing only here

    He didnt choose to be breaking the law, the law itself is a joke, drugs exsist, always have, they are in modern society as a whole, in your COFFEE when you wake up, in your TEA, in those painkillers you take and in all those prescription drugs you take, in that alcohol you consume, ontop of that drugs have gotten MORE dangerous BECAUSE they are illegal, today census on drugs is so out of touch its unreal, if illgeal drugs where regulated like legal drugs, then they would be safe, and the likelyhood is your more likely to be killed by someone out on the piss drinking that LEGAL alcohol than you are from a stoner sitting in the house or in a park with his friends just enjoying life, extasy? makes you in love with basically everything around you, wish i could say the same for alcohol, i mean sure their are limits, heroin for instance isnt and cant 100% be made into a “safe” drug, whereas alot of others can, but its pays more for the goverment to fight it than legalise it now, its gotten to that point.

    • Heinrich D. Bag

      The Swiss have been supplying pharmaceutical grade heroin to junkies along with clean gear and a safe place to do it. It has been a success from what I’ve read. Drinking too much water will kill you so I guess it still isn’t 100% “safe” by your standards but check it out. They showed the difference between the pure stuff and street grade and it made me sick. The pharma grade stuff looked like water and the street stuff looked like grainy maple syrup. I can only imagine what they are injecting along with the heroin. The pharma stuff wasn’t 100% heroin, mind you, just cut with sterile IV solution. They have a staff that is medically trained, have Narcan on site, and won’t let them leave until they are “OK” so they don’t go out and walk in front of a bus or become an easier target for crime.
