Bitcoin the digital currency, was the way of payment in the Drug marketplace Silk road, and probably the tor hidden marketplace was the biggest website relying on Bitcoin.
That’s why when the Silk road was taken down, Bitcoin lost almost 30% of it’s value!
A blog post covered Bitcoin instability earlier, this incident shows how unstable this virtual currency is!
But, maybe with more time, it will mature and thus become more stable!
A twist: could it be that Feds went after the silk road simply because they wanted to weaken Bitcoin, especially with the current crisis in the US?
