American Kingpin Catching the Billion Dollar Baron of the Dark WebA NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERThe unbelievable true story of the man who built a billion dollar online drug empire from his bedroom and almost got away with itIn 2011 a twenty six year old programmer named Ross Ulbricht launched the ultimate free market the Silk Road a clandestine Web site hosted on the Dark Web where anyone could trade anything drugs hacking software forged passports counterfeit cash poisons free of the governments watchful eye While the federal government were undertaking an epic two year manhunt for the sites elusive proprietor the Silk Road uickly ballooned into a 12 billion enterpriseRoss embraced his new role as kingpin taking drastic steps to protect himself including ordering a hit on a former employee As Ross made plans to disappear forever the Feds raced against the clock to catch a man they werent sure even existed searching for a needle in the haystack of the global InternetDrawing on exclusive access to key players and two billion digital words and images Ross left behind New York Times bestselling author Nick Bilton offers a tale filled with twists and turns lucky breaks and unbelievable close calls Its a story of the boy next doors ambition gone criminal spurred on by the clash between the new world of libertarian leaning anonymous decentralised Web advocates and the old world of government control order and the rule of law This book documents the phenomenal story of Ross Ulbright an idealist libertarian revolutionary who created one of the most thought provoking dangerous statements towards being a free society America or for that matter the world has ever known and charts how destructive and degenerative human life has become by proxy of civilizations impact on itselfThe story follows his life from a young age and tirelessly documents in vast detail the journey from being a disillusioned disenfranchised youth who I believe genuinely wanted to change the world and have a profound impact for the better to at times a ruthless mercenary who through naivety and ego seemingly would stop at nothing to defend what he had built regardless of the conseuences It is a very complex story and there is always the presense of doubht in cases such as these certainly for me anyway If you have access I recommend the video recorded with his friend Rene in San Francisco It certainly illuminates his personality and brings it to life a bit All that being said the writer did a fantastic job of compiling all the information to create a really great engaging read For me it just goes to show how broken and corrupt a world we have evolved into that this man can become this person he became I definitely dont dislike Ross and in many ways I came to admire him I find him incredibly impressive as a person his determination tenacity obvious high intellect and revolutionary mindsetI think Silk Road or sites like it were an inevitable evolution and bi product of the internet freedom of information has many demons I find it fascinating that this man was the man to shine such a light on the world and for me highlights just how fragile life on this planet has become Great story highly recommended
