Exciting New Conspiracy Theory
« on: December 03, 2013, 05:50:05 AM »
...For once, there's an emerging diabolical conspiracy for which DAVE is not the obvious mastermind,...this could signal the beginning of a new era,...

I found this article in Time Magazine (November 11, 2013): The Secret Web: Where Drugs, Porn and Murder Live Online.   
Unfortunately, the Time Magazine Website will not let you read the entire article without a subscription.   

The Deep Web concept was revealed in May 1996 by three scientists with the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in a paper entitled: "Hiding Routing Information" at a workshop in Cambridge England. It laid out the technical features of a system whereby users could access the Internet without divulging their identities to any Web servers or routers they might interact with along the way.

The result was The Onion Router (TOR).   

The illicit websites accessed by the TOR protocol remained hidden because all transactions were conducted with payments in bitcoins,...so there was never a bank record. "When Bitcoin appeared in 2009 it was a radical new kind of currency. It was introduced as a kind of fiscal thought experiment by someone known only as Satoshi Nakamoto, whose true identity is still a mystery.  Bitcoin is both a payment system and a currency that is purely digital -- it has no physical form. A bitcoin's worth is determined by supply and demand and is valuable only insofar as individuals and companies have agreed to trade it."   

This is kind of interesting: an NSA presentation entitled, TOR Stinks

...To find out more,...do a GOOGLE search for: The Secret Web: Where Drugs, Porn and Murder Live Online,...or,...tor stinks pdf,...

...Of course,...I didn't make this junk post,...I was never here,...I don't actually exist,... :dazzled:

...It's interesting that the "Deep Web" was originally built by the U'S, military (at least this is what the article claims). The TOR project is currently administered by a nonprofit organization based in Cambridge, Mass., and sponsored by a diverse array of organizations including Google and the Knight Foundation. But, as recently as 2011, 60% of its funding still came from the U.S. Government.   
The corruption of the Deep Web began not long after it was built. As early as 2006, a website that came to be known as The Farmer's Market was selling everything from marijuana to ketamine.   
Most of the Time Magazine article describes a website known as: "The Silk Road",...which, for 2 and a half years acted as an Amazon-like clearinghouse for illegal goods, providing almost a million customers with $1.2 Billion worth of contraband. Most of the second half of the article describes the efforts of the FBI to locate and prosecute the individual running Silk Road.   
Here is a quote from the article: "Most people who use the Deep Web aren't criminals. But some prosecutors and government agencies think that Silk Road was just the thin edge of the wedge and that the Deep Web is a potential nightmare, an electronic haven for traffickers, child pornographers, human traffickers, forgers, assassins and peddlers of state secrets and loose nukes. The FBI, the DEA, the ATF and the NSA, to name a few, are spending tens of millions of dollars trying to figure out how to crack it."

BitCoin is just a ponzi scheme.
