A Scandalous Silk Road Founder Drops an NFT Series
A founder of a dark web marketplace called Silk Road, RossUlbricht, who is currently in prison, made a scandalous announcement about an auction he is going to take with a series of his own NFTs.
The announcement was made on Twitter with the help of his supporter. The art series will include 11 pieces created in different periods of Ulbricht’s life. The early works from his childhood feature comic book characters and animals, the latest depict his trial and life in prison.
Ulbricht is sentenced to two life terms for managing his dark web marketplace that accepted Bitcoins as payment. This is why there are mixed feelings in the crypto community about him; some believe he played a role in Bitcoin adoption, others disapprove of the way he did it.
