The Craziest Things You Could've Bought On Silk Road, The Black Market Of The Internet

by Robert Anthony

In case you've been living under a rock for the past few weeks, Silk Road is, or should I say was, an illegal Internet marketplace that sold all kinds of things, from unlicensed firearms and high-grade drugs to contracts that would hire you a hitman for $150,000.

Though the place may have been considered a goldmine for some, it was also a terrible website that allowed vendors to sell child pornography and initiate assassinations.

The online black market was eventually shutdown by the FBI after the entire operation was discovered. Although the founder, Ross William Ulbricht, was arrested, the FBI continues to struggle to seize over 600,000 BitCoins generated by Ulbricht from Silk Road transactions.

Below are the craziest things you could've bought on Silk Road, the black market of the internet. Check them out!
