  • A sidebar contains links to the “top” sites to buy drugs on the darknet.
  • CompariTech, a site that reviews and compares information security products, spotted the scam first and wrote up a blog post laying out their findings on Wednesday.

  • “My thesis is really bitcoin is a solution looking for a problem,” Pal said.
  • Pal exited his position in bitcoin in late May.
