Underground Website Lets You Buy Any Drug Imaginable


Making small talk with your pot dealer sucks. Buying cocaine can get you shot. What if you could buy and sell drugs online like books or light bulbs? Now you can: Welcome to Silk Road.
About three weeks ago, the U.S. Postal Service delivered an ordinary envelope to Mark’s door. Inside was a tiny plastic bag containing 10 tabs of LSD. “If you had opened it, unless you were looking for it, you wouldn’t have even noticed,” Mark told us in a phone interview.
Mark, a software developer, had ordered the 100 micrograms of acid through a listing on the online marketplace Silk Road. He found a seller with lots of good feedback who seemed to know what they were talking about, added the acid to his digital shopping cart and hit “check out.” He entered his address and paid the seller 50 Bitcoins — untraceable digital currency — worth around $150. Four days later, the drugs (sent from Canada) arrived at his house.
“It kind of felt like I was in the future,” Mark said.

Silk Road, a digital black market that sits just below most internet users’ purview, does resemble something from a cyberpunk novel. Through a combination of anonymity technology and a sophisticated user-feedback system, Silk Road makes buying and selling illegal drugs as easy as buying used electronics — and seemingly as safe. It’s Amazon — if Amazon sold mind-altering chemicals.
Here is just a small selection of the 340 items available for purchase on Silk Road by anyone, right now: a gram of Afghani hash; 1/8 ounce of “sour 13″ weed; 14 grams of ecstasy; .1 gram tar heroin. A listing for “Avatar” LSD includes a picture of blotter paper with big blue faces from the James Cameron movie on it.
The sellers are located all over the world, a large portion from the United States and Canada.

But even Silk Road has limits: You won’t find any weapons-grade plutonium, for example. Its terms of service ban the sale of “anything who’s purpose is to harm or defraud, such as stolen credit cards, assassinations, and weapons of mass destruction.”
‘It’s Amazon — if Amazon sold mind-altering chemicals.’
Getting to Silk Road is tricky. The URL seems made to be forgotten. But don’t point your browser there yet. It’s only accessible through the anonymizing network, TOR, which requires a bit of technical skill to configure.
Once you’re there, it’s hard to believe that Silk Road isn’t simply a scam. Such brazenness is usually displayed only by those fake “online pharmacies” that dupe the dumb and flaccid. There’s no sly, Craigslist-style code names here. But while scammers do use the site, most of the listings are legit. Mark’s acid worked as advertised. “It was quite enjoyable, to be honest,” he said. We spoke to one Connecticut engineer who enjoyed sampling some “silver haze” pot purchased off Silk Road. “It was legit,” he said. “It was better than anything I’ve seen.”

Edgarnumbers is selling these 2C-B "blue bees" tablets. Price: 1.15 bitcoins ($10) per tablet.

Silk Road cuts down on scams with a reputation-based trading system familiar to anyone who’s used Amazon or eBay. The user Bloomingcolor appears to be an especially trusted vendor, specializing in psychedelics. One happy customer wrote on his profile: “Excellent quality. Packing, and communication. Arrived exactly as described.” They gave the transaction five points out of five. “Our community is amazing,” Silk Road’s anonymous administrator, known on forums as “Silk Road,” told us in an e-mail. “They are generally bright, honest and fair people, very understanding, and willing to cooperate with each other.”

Sellers feel comfortable openly selling hard-core drugs because the real identities of those involved in Silk Road transactions are utterly obscured. If the authorities wanted to ID Silk Road’s users with computer forensics, they’d have nowhere to look. TOR masks a user’s tracks on the site. As for transactions, Silk Road doesn’t accept credit cards, PayPal or any other form of payment that can be traced or blocked. The only money good here is Bitcoins.
Bitcoins have been called a “crypto-currency,” the online equivalent of a brown paper bag of cash. Bitcoins are a peer-to-peer currency, not issued by banks or governments, but created and regulated by a network of other bitcoin holders’ computers. (The name “Bitcoin” is derived from the pioneering file-sharing technology Bittorrent.) They are purportedly untraceable and have been championed by cyberpunks, libertarians and anarchists who dream of a distributed digital economy outside the law, one where money flows across borders as free as bits.
To purchase something on Silk Road, you need first to buy some Bitcoins using a service like Mt. Gox Bitcoin Exchange. Then, create an account on Silk Road, deposit some bitcoins, and start buying drugs. One bitcoin is worth about $8.67, though the exchange rate fluctuates wildly every day. Right now you can buy an 1/8 ounce of pot on Silk Road for 7.63 Bitcoins. That’s probably more than you would pay on the street, but most Silk Road users seem happy to pay a premium for convenience.
‘It kind of felt like I was in the future.’
Since it launched this February, Silk Road has represented the most complete implementation of the Bitcoin vision. Many of its users come from Bitcoin’s Utopian geek community and see Silk Road as more than just a place to buy drugs. Silk Road’s administrator cites the anarcho-libertarian philosophy of Agorism. “The state is the primary source of violence, oppression, theft and all forms of coercion,” Silk Road wrote to us. “Stop funding the state with your tax dollars and direct your productive energies into the black market.”
Mark, the LSD buyer, had similar views. “I’m a libertarian anarchist and I believe that anything that’s not violent should not be criminalized,” he said.

1UP of Canada is offering 1/8 ounce of "the infamous Jack Herer." He writes: "This is just classic stuff, well grown, well cured, well smoked." Price: 7.42 bitcoins ($64)

But not all Bitcoin enthusiasts embrace Silk Road. Some think the association with drugs will tarnish the young technology, or might draw the attention of federal authorities. “The real story with Silk Road is the quantity of people anxious to escape a centralized currency and trade,” a longtime bitcoin user named Maiya told us in a chat. “Some of us view Bitcoin as a real currency, not drug barter tokens.” Silk Road and Bitcoins could herald a black market eCommerce revolution. But anonymity cuts both ways. How long until a DEA agent sets up a fake Silk Road account and starts sending SWAT teams instead of LSD to the addresses she gets? As Silk Road inevitably spills out of the bitcoin bubble, its drug-swapping utopians will meet a harsh reality no anonymizing network can blur.

    Study estimates $2 million a month in Bitcoin drug sales

    Revenues of the drug marketplace Silk Road have doubled since March.

    We've noted before that the cryptocurrency Bitcoin has been adopted enthusiastically by those engaged in legally dubious pursuits like gambling and drug purchases. Forbes points us to a new study that backs up this proposition with hard data.
    Nicolas Christin, a researcher at Carnegie Mellon, monitored the online marketplace Silk Road over a period of months. The research turned up some striking statistics about the volume and distribution of transactions made on the secretive site, which primarily facilitates drug deals.
    Silk Road sellers have collectively had around $1.9 million of sales per month in recent months. Almost 1,400 sellers have participated in the marketplace, and they have collectively earned positive ratings from 97.8 percent of buyers. And the service is growing, with Silk Road's estimated commission revenue roughly doubling between March and July of this year.

    Traveling the Silk Road

    Silk Road is an online marketplace that uses Tor and Bitcoin to preserve the anonymity of all involved. The site itself is set up as a Tor hidden service, which makes it practically impossible to locate the site's servers. And the use of Bitcoins prevents the authorities from identifying market participants by following the money.
    Most of the items listed for sale are illegal drugs. To place an order, the buyer transmits the appropriate number of Bitcoins to the site operators, who hold the funds in escrow while the goods are shipped. Once the buyer confirms the product has arrived, the escrowed funds are released to the seller.
    Christin began crawling Silk Road in November 2011. From February to July of this year, he attempted to crawl the site on a daily basis, yielding a wealth of data about activity on the site.
    Silk Road buyers are required to provide feedback on their purchases, and these reports are publicly available. This gave Cristin a handy way to track the volume of activity on the site. He reports that the volume of transactions on the site increased "from approximately 8,000 BTC/day to approximately 15,000 BTC/day, before seemingly retreating down to 11,000 BTC/day. The latter decrease is, however, an artifact of the Bitcoin sharply appreciating against all major currencies, rather than an indication of a drop in sales."
    The growing volume of transactions has been lucrative for whoever operates the site. Christin estimates that Silk Road's operator earned an average of $143,000 per month during the period he was monitoring the site. And revenues have been increasing rapidly:
    Enlarge / Estimated revenues of Silk Road operator. Silk Road switched fee schedules partway through the study, so Christin estimated revenue that would be generated under either scheme.

    Satisfied customers

    In total, Cristin found 24,422 items available for sale. The online marketplace is dominated by drugs that are illegal in the United States and most other jurisdictions. Marijuana and related products topped the list, accounting for more than 20 percent of items available. Prescription drugs accounted for another 15 percent of the items. "Harder" drugs, including cocaine, ecstasy, and heroin, were also available, but they were much less common than marijuana.
    All these transactions are being generated by a relatively small number of merchants. Christin observed 1,397 distinct sellers over the months he observed the site, but many of the sellers only stuck around for a short period. Just 58 sellers were offering their wares for the entire period of the study.
    Sellers who disappear from the site's public listings haven't necessarily abandoned the site completely. Silk Road allows sellers to operate in "stealth mode," serving customers on an invitation-only basis. Cristin speculates that some sellers pop up on the site, spend a few weeks building up a customer base, and then switch to stealth mode to continue serving the customers they already have. That means Cristin has likely understated the true volume of transactions on Silk Road.
    Fraud does occur, though. In one case, a seller who had previously had a good reputation cut his prices by 20 percent in order to generate a large volume of sales, and then disappeared from the site without delivering the products customers had ordered. Because Bitcoin transactions are irreversible, those buyers that had already released their funds from Silk Road's escrow service found themselves out of luck.
    Still, most sellers appear to be behaving themselves. On a five-star rating scale, 96.5 percent of buyers gave five-star ratings, and 1.3 percent gave four-star ratings. Just 1.1 percent gave the lowest rating of one star.
    So far, the world's law enforcement agencies don't appear to have done much to combat Silk Road's growth. Two weeks ago Australian government officials bragged about catching one Silk Road user, but that arrest represents a tiny fraction of the tens of thousands of transactions the site has facilitated.

    Dealers shed light on dark internet's drug trade


    Users of the dark internet have shed light on their illegal trades on a growing online black market, which is helping more and more Australians to buy drugs and weapons.
    A number of sites compete for the drug dollar online, selling drugs and sending them through the post to customers across the globe.
    Customs spokesman Matt Wardell says the illegal trade has been linked to a spike in drug and weapons seizures at Australian mail centres.
    "Certainly over the past 12 months, last financial year for example, we noticed a jump of more than 40 per cent in the number of small seizures made at mail centres across the country," he told 7.30.
    "That's obviously got a lot to do with the increase in online trade.
    "There's no question that it's become a more attractive way for people to try and import prohibited goods into the country - be they guns, be they drugs."
    The Silk Road website - an eBay for drugs where encryption software allows vendors to be anonymously rated - is giving authorities a particular headache.
    Bill, whose name has been changed, is a vendor on Silk Road who posts drugs to customers in Australia.
    As a seller on the site he has access to some buyer information, and he says business Down Under is good.
    There's no question that it's become a more attractive way for people to try and import prohibited goods into the country - be they guns, be they drugs.
    Matt Wardell from Customs

    "Australian traffic has double, tripled, quadrupled. There's more buyers, you can see them on the forums, you can see them on the posts," he said.
    "Not only that, but in recent months there's been an American traffic explosion and that led to the site actually going down for a certain amount of time."
    Nobody knows the identity or location of the founder of Silk Road, who goes under the pseudonym The Dread Pirate Roberts.
    To protect its illegal trade, the site uses complex masking software and money exchanges.
    Users have to download an encryption network, and the only money allowed is Bitcoin - an online currency that also hides purchasers' identities.
    Computer expert Chris McDonald is not a Silk Road user but has studied the technology behind it and believes it is unbeatable.
    "We're talking about tens of thousands, if not millions of years to break into these algorithms," he said.
    "So for a small piece of data we have the traditional problem where if you spend more effort trying to break into an encrypted piece of data, then by the time you've successfully broken into the data, the data itself has no value."



    'Easy money'


    But Customs and the Australian Federal Police are warning that sites like Silk Road only lead to jail.
    Mr Wardell says there have been a number of successful prosecutions but could not say how many, saying there are too many agencies involved.
    "It is a very big risk if you try to bring this stuff into the country," he said.
    "There's a very big risk Customs and Border Protection will seize it at the border, you'll lose your money, you'll lose the goods and you may go to jail."
    But Perth man Ryan West, 20, says that is not the case.
    Mr West works as a storeman driving a forklift, but previously made a living buying MDMA - the main ingredient in ecstasy - from his bedroom.
    He then sold it onto friends and acquaintances, who picked up the drugs from his house.
    "Extremely profitable - $300 investment into $2,500 in a day," he said.
    "It was very easy to resell. I was buying because it's very scarce here and everywhere around the world it's quite cheap."
    His world of drugs and easy money came crashing down in August when authorities raided his house.
    He was convicted of four charges, including intent to supply a prohibited drug, and placed on an intensive supervision order.

    'Too easy'

    Mr West says he was only caught because he was dealing drugs out of his house.
    He says other users on Silk Road, who post drugs to their customers, run little risk of being caught.
    "I was extravagant, I didn't care if I got caught, I wasn't covering my trails at all," he said.
    "I was happy to get caught really because I was stuck in there anyway, I was stuck in dealing, it was too easy to do and too hard to get out of.
    "Authorities will not be able to stop this. They can slow it down, but there's always going to be drugs in the mail one way or another."
    Authorities will not be able to stop this. They can slow it down, but there's always going to be drugs in the mail one way or another.
    Former Silk Road user Ryan West

    That sentiment is echoed by Bill, who is not worried by the attention from Customs and believes Silk Road is the future of drug dealing.
    "If Silk Road was shut down, people would simply transfer over to a new network," he said.
    Mr Wardell says the anonymous nature of the dark internet brings bigger dangers than being arrested.
    "You have no quality control when you're buying things from an online anonymous market place," he said.
    "So not only are you breaking the law, but you're arguably taking a big risk with your own health.
    "The argument about whether this is safer or more convenient doesn't really wash. It's still illegal and it's a big risk."
    Despite that, there continues to be a demand for drugs and there are plenty of sellers ready to meet it.

    Online drug dealers back on Silk Road after mysterious two-week outage



    The anonymous online black market known as the Silk Road, which offers everything from drugs to pirated Red Bull, is back up after an outage that lasted about two weeks.
    When Silk Road became inaccessible earlier this month, the rumors started flying. Its psuedonymous operator Dread Pirate Roberts was temporarily incommunicado, prompting theories that he’d been picked up by the FBI or had run off with the site’s deposits. There were also claims that the site had been hacked, or flooded with fake traffic and brought down by a malicious attacker.
    Silk Road started coming back online late last week and is now running, albeit slowly and with some errors. Dread Pirate Roberts reassured users that there was no scam, no FBI, and no hacking. The illicit bazaar was growing so fast that the influx of new users brought the site down, he announced.
    "We were getting an influx of new members that was overloading our current infrastructure."
    "A couple of weeks ago, we started seeing the accessibility and speed of Silk Road start to drop, especially around peak hours," Dread Pirate Roberts announced to Silk Road users in a forum message. "Monitoring the number of incoming connections, pageviews and registrations showed record breaking numbers, so the obvious conclusion was that we were getting an influx of new members that was overloading our current infrastructure."
    Dread Pirate Roberts and Silk Road’s team, which includes technical as well as customer support, "did a full redeploy of the entire system including the new security and performance measures which turned out to be quite challenging in the end," Dread Pirate Roberts said.
    Although the explanation was short on details, most users gladly accepted it and seemed to have resumed their normal illegal activities. "Just like that. Faith was returned to the road. Thanks DPR," wrote user luckysquid.
    Silk Road is only accessible via Tor, a decentralized network of servers that encrypt and relay signals in order to mask users’ online activity. The vast majority of listings are for drugs: prescription opiates like Oxycontin and anti-depressants, steroids like Somatropin, and street drugs including marijuana, ecstasy, heroin, cocaine, and even the notorious date rape drug GHB.
    Users rely on Bitcoins, the semi-anonymous ecurrency, in order to buy and sell the thousands of items on offer; it’s been estimated that the marketplace accounts for a majority of all commercial transactions done in Bitcoin.
    Nicolas Christin, associate director of the Information Networking Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, spent six months tracking activity on Silk Road and released a report in August estimating the marketplace’s activity at around $22 million from January to July of 2012.
    The study made quite a splash, although the $22 million figure turned out to be a bit high. Dr. Christin will be publishing a revised version later this month that lowers the estimate to around $15 million.
    Silk Road had at least $15 million in business from January to July
    The true figure is still elusive. Dr. Christin’s estimates do not include stealth listings, which are not linked from the rest of Silk Road and are only viewable to buyers who have been given the URL. He also stopped tracking sales in July, after which the site has reportedly grown significantly.
    Dr. Christin is inclined to believe the official explanation for Silk Road’s temporary disappearance. "Server overload, basically, due to the continuous, rapid increase of members, which led to the site being unusable. They had to redesign their infrastructure to accommodate the load; not an easy thing to do given their security constraints," he said in an email. Although he acknowledged that the reasons could be more nefarious, "the explanation given by the operator is consistent with what could be observed."
    Tor has stymied the FBI’s efforts in the past, putting a stop to at least one investigation into child pornography. However, users have reason to be paranoid. US senators Chuck Schumer and Joe Manchin publicly called on the Drug Enforcement Agency to investigate Silk Road last year.
    In April, the feds busted the Tor-protected drug marketplace known as The Famer’s Market, arresting 15 people. In August the Australian Federal Police arrested a man for importing drugs using Silk Road, issuing a warning to Silk Road users that "their identity will not always remain anonymous and when caught, they will be prosecuted."
    The DEA says it is investigating Silk Road
    The DEA says it has been investigating Silk Road for more than a year. When The Verge called to ask about Silk Road, DEA spokesperson Rusty Payne recognized the name immediately. "Typically we’re not really giving out investigative updates about what we’re doing, but it’s it's safe to say we are heavily involved in looking into that."
    It’s been pointed out that Silk Road is tiny compared to the worldwide drug trade, suggesting that authorities should concentrate their resources elsewhere. Still, the site’s fast growth, and the terror that the "world weed web" strikes in the hearts of first-world parents, make it an increasingly attractive target.
    But for now, at least according to the site’s operators, robust IT support remains the biggest challenge.
