A New Silk Road Emerges

Jayanand Sagar | November 6, 2013 | 5:08 pm


In what may be facetiously called the surprise of the century, a new version of the now-famed ‘Silk Road’ deep web narcotics exchange emerged Wednesday, dubbed aptly as ‘Silk Road 2.0.’

The site, accessible via Tor, is reported to sport the familiar interface that the first iteration of Silk Road had before it was shut down in a major bust by the U.S. government.

“This hidden site has risen again,” it declares boldly on the home page, seemingly poking fun at the Federal notice (seen in the screen shot above obtained by Forbes. According to CoinDesk, “the ‘profile’ page has been updated, now enabling users to select two-factor authentication.”

Many may be wary of the new Silk Road, however. Could it potentially be a honey pot run by the feds? Time, of course, will tell.
