Wired covers a new “Decentralized Market” that seeks to replace Silk Road.  The implications for crime are obvious.  What do you think should be the limits of this secret black market technology?  Obviously the governments of the world will be tracking this progress closely.

Western governments are doing everything in their power to centralize control and monitor all activity that exists, anywhere, in any form.  This development is a logical response to that, but it brings with it sinister implications.

I’m not at all sure the developers care about the harm this may bring to the world.  This isn’t a neutral type of technology, but disruptive.  Its legitimate uses are not so easy to see.
