Note from the CEO: Coming to America? Well, maybe. A former moderator of the infamous Silk Road platform is fighting extradition to the U.S. Silk Road was a very big drug selling site for those that remember (if you don’t, you obviously used it) and the defendant does not want to leave Ireland for Guantanamo-New York. Who would? But, there is a HUGE market in the US prison system for drugs. Hmmmmmm, just saying.”
The story of Gary Davis, a former moderator of the Silk Road platform, is far from over. While government officials want to hold him accountable for helping to run Silk Road, the High Court ruled to have him extradited to the US. But Davis is not planning to let that slide, and will appeal this decision in the coming days.
With all of the charges hanging over the head of Davis, it is only normal he would much rather stand trial in Ireland instead of the US. Conspiracy to distribute narcotics carries a life sentence in the United States, while things are very different under EU jurisdiction. But there is more, as Davis also faces charges of conspiracy to commit computer hacking and money laundering.”
