0:00:00 Website Providing Links to Illicit Crypto Marketplaces Seized
0:00:04 This update is brought to you by "CoinCheckup News Updates" and was originally published on "NewsBTC".
0:00:10 A website that provided a link between the regular internet and dark web marketplaces offering illegal goods and services in exchange for crypto has been seized.
0:00:20 Deep Dot Web went down earlier today with a seizure notice detailing the authorities involved with the bust.
0:00:26 The raid on the website appears to be a coordinated effort by various law enforcement bodies from around the globe.
0:00:32 These include the US Department of Justice, Europol, Politie, and others.
0:00:37 Visitors to a popular website detailing various aspects of the numerous crypto-friendly dark net market places that have continued to spring up since the original Silk Road was shut down and its founder, Ross Ulbricht, was sentenced to life behind bars, would have disappointed this afternoon to find that it has been seized.
0:00:54 Whilst concrete details relating to the seizure are still hazy, a brief report published to OnionSpot, a website providing similar information as Deep Dot Web, speculates as to what might have gone on.
0:01:05 The post claims that both the hidden web service and the regular website have both been seized.
0:01:11 It goes on to state that those behind Deep Dot Web were accepting crypto payments in exchange for necessary referral links to popular dark net marketplaces such as Dream Market and Wall Street Market - both of which have recently gone offline for reasons currently unknown.
0:01:25 Finally, the report speculates that the site’s operators’ crypto-for-referral links scheme could cost them up to 15 years in prison each.
0:01:33 The charges they likely face will be based around them facilitating illegal acts and breaking anti-money laundering regulations.
