Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

This appears to be a bit of a sensationalist story. While its possible they seized the Silk Road escrow funds, since I believe I read in court docs they had physical control of the server. I don't believe they have control of Dread Pirate's personal wallet, only a copy of the wallet file. Unless Ulbricht, if he is in fact DPR voluntarily reveals his private key, which would tie him to the allegations against him, or the NSA finishes their quantum computer and starts going to town on this file. DPR retains control over the supposed 600k BTC stash as of now.
