“Le principal accusé de l’histoire, James Zhong, aurait commis une « fraude électronique » il y a 10 ans, a expliqué le procureur en charge de l’affaire dans le communiqué de presse. Il aurait à ce moment-là volé les bitcoins à Silk Road «grâce à une technique élaborée», et aurait, une fois son larcin accompli, «essayé de cacher sa trace à travers une série de transactions complexes, en espérant qu’il serait caché par le dark net». Pendant 10 ans, James Zhong a réussi à échapper à la justice et à cacher l’emplacement de ses bitcoins, mais «grâce aux techniques de pointe en traçage de crypto-monnaie […], les forces de l’ordre ont pu remonter sa trace et retrouver la somme volée». Dix ans après les faits et des années après la fermeture de Silk Road, l’affaire souligne le fait que la justice américaine «n’arrêtera jamais de chercher l’argent», selon le procureur.”

But they then allegedly found several large child pornography sites which were using more than Freedom Hosting II’s stated allowance. Usually, Freedom Hosting II has a quota of 256MB per site, but these illegal sites comprised of gigabytes of material, the hacker claimed. « This suggests they paid for hosting and the admin knew of those sites. That’s when I decided to take it down instead ».
