The Silk Road Balance Sheet Discrepancy: Bitcoin Worth $4.8 Billion Still Missing.

The original Silk Road marketplace has been shut down for well over seven years now and to this day, 444,000 bitcoin worth $4.8 billion is still missing.

A number of people understand that the Silk Road marketplace was shut down by global law enforcement (LE) in October 2013 and LE subsequently arrested Ross Ulbricht shortly after.

Individuals are also familiar with the 173,991 BTC ($1.9B) from the Silk Road coins that were seized and later auctioned by the U.S.

However, the public is not wholly aware of the estimated 444,000 BTC ($4.8B) missing from the Silk Road and a recent study from mysteryarchive.com discusses the lost coins at length.

“What many people don’t know about the Silk Road story, is that the balance sheet does not add up, and everybody just seems to be okay with this fact,” the mysteryarchive.com report notes.

Mysteryarchive.com stresses that “another computer seems likely, as it is common practice to not put all your wealth in one place.” The report is not the only account of the hundreds of thousands of Silk Road BTC still missing from the darknet marketplace.
