.onion marketplace that sprung up in the wake of the Silk Road seizure, closed down over the weekend after nearly 100 thousand BTC, worth around $100 million, were stolen. The market had been plagued by suspicion for weeks, and it all came to a head last week as admins began disallowing withdrawal of bitcoins in escrow. Users revolted. The forum was shutdown. Admins claimed a bug allowed 5,000 BTC to be stolen. Eventually the entire site went down, taking tens of millions of dollars worth BTC with it. It is still unclear who is responsible, but reddit user sheepreloaded2 claims to have identified the wallet containing the stolen bitcoins and has been frustrating attempts to launder them.
