It took the FBI and the Department of Justice two and a half years to shut down the Deep Web drug market known as the Silk Road and while they might have arrested the alleged mastermind and several vendors and users, the spirit of the service seemingly can’t be taken away.
A reborn Silk Road came online early Wednesday morning with the promise of being bigger and better than the original.
