  • The most disturbing part of the Dread Pirate Roberts (DPR) story is also the strangest: how the boss of the Silk Road drugs marketplace attempted to arrange not one but six murders-for-hire.

    The transcript makes for astonishing reading as Dread Pirate Roberts dispenses cash and orders hits without bothering to verify even basic details about those he interacts with. Looking up the mentioned transactions in Bitcoin's blockchain shows that the transfers did in fact take place; whatever happened here, at least one party seems to have thought it was real—even if the dialogue often reads like a bad movie script.

  • Who is the Dread Pirate Roberts? Last Wednesday, a jury convicted the 30-year-old Ulbricht on seven counts related to drug trafficking and dealing in other illicit goods; evidence gathered from his laptop showed him communicating with others as DPR. (Ulbricht will be sentenced in May.)

    Between the initial "hits" and the "loan," Dread Pirate Roberts paid redandwhite US$1.15 million in bitcoin. The payments for the fake hits came from Ulbricht's own bitcoin wallet, one more piece of damning evidence that his defense lawyers couldn't explain away to the jury.

    Well, Roberts had grown so rich, he wanted to retire. He took me to his cabin and he told me his secret. 'I am not the Dread Pirate Roberts', he said. 'My name is Ryan; I inherited the ship from the previous Dread Pirate Roberts, just as you will inherit it from me. The man I inherited it from is not the real Dread Pirate Roberts either. His name was Cummerbund. The real Roberts has been retired fifteen years and living like a king in Patagonia.'

    "The bitcoins [from DPR to redandwhite] sat there until August 2013 (which alone should have tipped out the Dread Pirate about a possible scam; if someone wants that amount of money, why would they just sit on it when it was supposed to go pay some hitman?)," said Nicholas Weaver, a University of California-Berkeley computer researcher. The bitcoins were "only then moved away in bulk, split up, and perhaps sent to Bitcoin exchanges or other cashout."

“I have no doubt one day I will either be caught or pass the title on before that time, but the most important thing we should remember is that no matter who the man is behind Dread Pirate Roberts, you do not serve him—I am here to serve you.”
