#SilkRoad Ross Ulbricht: Silk Road founder shifted to another high security prison Published 3 months ago on January 17, 2019 By Layla Harding Share Tweet Ross Ulbricht, the founder of the Silk Road, the online black market which was best known for selling illegal drugs has been shifted to another high-security prison. Ross Ulbricht is currently serving a double life sentence along with 40 years in prison without parole. Why is Ross Ulbricht being shifted? According to the authorities, the prison where Ulbricht is being shifted is quite safer than the previous prisons he has been in. From the start of his prison days, Ross Ulbricht has been transferred to quite a few prisons. The current prison has been proposed by Katherine Bolan Forrest, the judge who is overseeing the case. The tale: The prison journey of Ross Ulbricht started from Metropolitan Correctional Center, New York where Ross was kept during his trial. After this Ross was shifted to USP Florence High, Colorado. He was again shifted to USP Tucson, Arizona from there. This would be the fourth time that Ross will be transferred to yet another prison. Ross Ulbricht has been accused of money laundering, computer hacking, and conspiracy to traffic narcotics with the start of the Silk Road. However, Ross had created the Silk Road with the aim of creating a free marketplace where users can easily transact with each other. There was no intention of causing hurt to anyone. The website was launched in 2010 and was shut down by the federal authorities in 2013 when Ross was arrested from a library in San Francisco. Ross is accused of being the founder of Silk Road. The family members and supporters of Ross Ulbricht are wishing that Ross shall be moved to a non-high security prison and he shall not be considered a threat or a dangerous criminal. The family is fighting to get Ross’s sentence reduced and have been continuously trying to gather people’s attention towards the injustice that Ross Ulbricht has been facing from years. The supporters of Ross have been coming up in large numbers to sign the petition on Change.org which has a target of 150,000 signatures.

Sanchez Ross Ulbricht was reportedly the founder and owner of Silk Road and the person behind the pseudonym “Dread Pirate Roberts” ( DPR ). Launched in February 2011, the Silk Road website, created by Ross Ulbricht, was designed to be a “free market experience” focused on user anonymity. The original Silk Road website was in operation for less than three years but was created. Within a few hours of his arrest, the Silk Road domain had been seized, the market was closed and great plans by Ross Ulbricht to make the world a better place were in turmoil. As part of their research on Silk Road, the FBI caught up with a number of other users and administrators on the hunt for Dread Pirate Roberts. Ross Ulbricht Arrested: The Silk Road was growing rapidly, and Ulbricht needed workers, which were not so easy to find for an illegal company. For months, a Drug Enforcement officer ( DEA ) had been talking to Ulbricht under the pseudonym of a Drug cartel clerk and a Silk Road salesman. Of course, with Ulbricht’s email and a plausible explanation of the connection with Silk Road, it was only a matter of time before the authorities found it. Another activity attributed to Ross Ulbricht occurred on the Stack Overflow – a website with questions and answers for developers – where a user named Frosty asked questions about complex encoding, which later became part of the Silk Road source code. Ross Ulbricht was arrested in a library of San Francisco when he entered the Silk Road as a terrible Pirate named Roberts. The Australian police and DEA have targeted Silk Road users and arrested them, albeit with limited success in reaching the verdict. After the arrest of Ross Ulbricht in October 2013, Silk Road 2. 0 was temporarily reopened by the administrators of the original location. What Next? At the end of November 2016, Ulbricht’s lawyers filed a lawsuit against a third DEA agent, who claims to have leaked information about the investigation and manipulated evidence to omit the chat records showing conversations with him. Today, in a breakthrough development, the defense team Ross Ulbricht discovered that on 18 November 2013 someone entered the Silk Road forum associated with “Dread Pirate Roberts” ( DPR ), while Ulbricht was arrested after his arrest on 1 October. In 2013, Ulbricht was arrested for leading the Silk Road as DPR, a multi-million online business that was popular among drug traffickers and other anonymous transactions. Lyn says that she is tired of hearing the myths persisting in the media and in other ways about Ross and the Silk Road. Many of his backgrounds has been in the same city to set up a technological startup or two, but the FBI believed that Ulbricht was a much darker one: he has a massive black market for internet drugs and other illicit goods called Silk Road. The police have also taken possession of a digital wallet that is said to belong to Ulbricht and contains thousands of Bitcoins, an anonymous cryptocurrency used in the Silk Road market. The supporters of Ross Ulbricht believe that the Ross did not want to start Silk Road to make it a drug marketplace but rather his aim was to make a P2P marketplace without the involvement of any intermediary where anyone can sell anything. His supporters have started an online petition ‘FREE ROSS ULBRICHT’ which has already been signed by more than 120,000 people. Read the untold story of Ross Ulbricht Here.
