FBI Seized 144,000 Bitcoins ($28.5 Million) From Silk Road Bust

Unless the FBI cares to prove it, nobody knows who controls the receiving address. It could easily be someone who paid for the coins.

For example, an exchange who then sold an offsetting amount from other controlled addresses.

dgenr8 Already sold (162 comments)

Twenty Years of Dijkstra's Cruelty

dgenr8 Self-confidence (727 comments)

All I have to do is read one paper like this to be reminded why I stayed out of academia. Ah the smugness, the hypocrisy, the great irony. A "radical novelty" this essay is not.

There are plenty of truths out there yet to be discovered. Unfortunately most academics lack the self-confidence to go looking for them and instead find clever new ways to twist ideas around.
