DPR got life, but died in prison

Edit: no shit I had him confused with another darknet market admin. I hope to God we free that dude, he was an honest outlaw that doesn't belong in a cage

Not dead yet...DPR/ Ross Ulbricht was sentenced to a double life sentence plus forty years without the possibility of parole

Still in prison. On Dec 09,2021 closed a NFT auction for 1447ETH,($6.27M at the time) which will allegedly fund efforts to relieve the suffering of the incarcerated and their families, as well as the fight to free Ross from a life in prison

I think you are correct unfortunately. The US government used a widenet and seized (stole) a ton of Bitcoin.

I dunno about the Bitcoin stealing but the guy who’s in prison isn’t going to be using any buried stash anytime soon.

I wouldn't say "unfortunately". He got life for trying to hire hitmen to murder people. That's pretty fucked up

Who knows if that’s even true. The Feds set up people all the time.
