Jul 10, 2024 | Crime, Videos

Deep Web is a gripping and thought-provoking documentary that examines the case of Silk Road, the notorious online drug market that was shut down by the FBI in 2013. The documentary follows the trial of Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht, who used the pseudonym “Dread Pirate Roberts” to hide his identity, and looks at issues of digital privacy, cryptography, and Bitcoin.

At its peak, Silk Road had over 900,000 registered users and conducted transactions worth a staggering $1.2 billion. This makes it one of the most successful illegal markets of all time. Yet despite its sheer scale, few people know what really happened – until now.

Deep Web offers an up-close look at this shadowy chapter in our history. It dives deep into some of today’s most pertinent questions surrounding online privacy and freedom of speech on the internet.

We also get to see firsthand how cryptography can provide tight security for anonymous communications – as well as how law enforcement agencies use it to track down criminals
