    As Major Silk Road Competitor Shutters, $100M Vanishes With It


    The stolen 5,400 BTC were allegedly just the tip of the iceberg. Redditors pointed to a transfer of 39,900 BTC this weekend, claiming it was an indication that the administrators were siphoning money from users' accounts on the site, as first reported by Forbes.
    Another drug marketplace bit the dust over the weekend and another massive Bitcoin heist shook the deep web.
    Sheep Marketplace, one of the two most prominent Silk Road competitors, went down on Saturday. A message briefly posted on the site on Saturday claimed that one of Sheep Marketplace's vendors exploited a security flaw and stole 5,400 BTC ($6 million at its current value).

    The heist could be even larger than that, though; it may have involved up to 96,000 BTC ($100 million), which would be by far the largest Bitcoin theft in U.S. dollars, given that Bitcoin's value is currently at an all-time high. It's the third major Bitcoin robbery in the last month; cybercriminals also stole 4,100 BTC from inputs.io and 1,295 BTC from BIPS, both online Bitcoin payment providers.
    On Saturday, Reddit user posted a message from the site's administrators, which has since been removed. The message claimed vendor EBOOK101 hacked the site and stole 5,400 Bitcoin:
    Sheep is down
    We are sorry to say, but we were robbed on Saturday 11/21/2013 by vendor EBOOK101. This vendor found bug in system and stole 5400 BTC - your money, our provisions, all was stolen. We were trying to resolve this problem, but we were not successful. We are sorry for your problems and inconvenience, all of current BTC will be ditributed to users, who have filled correct BTC emergency adress [sic].
    I would like to thank to all SheepMarketplace moderators by this, who were helping with this problem. I am very sorry for this situation. Thank you all.
    Details of the incident are still unclear. Angry former users of the drug bazaar are pointing fingers in all directions, mainly on Reddit, and mounting a cyber-manhunt operation to track down the robbers. Many believe the heist was a scam, and the No. 1 suspect among Redditors is the Sheep Marketplace administrator, a Czech citizen named Tomáš Jiřikovský. Rumors of suspicious behavior from Sheep Marketplace's administrators began in late November, as documented on the website SheepMarketScam.com.

    Sheep Sheep Marketplace? LOL... At least it can claim honest advertizing. Buying illegal drugs online from a Market called Sheep Sheep is like buying a retirement condo from a Co. called Soylent Green Villages.

    The Bitcult tards are gonna face the music one day, Sorry! Through theft, monitoring (and prosecution) or complete shutdown the future isn't anything like they think it's going to be. Do think the biggest crime syndicate is going to let some Geeks move in on their territory that easy? If so, you are fantasizing. If it's too good to be true it probably is. You might as well spend your frn's on unicorn farts.

    Nice going for guy/guys at sheep. Scam is part of this business.
    If they can get away with 100 million, they did real good. No one to call to report the theft to and no recource.
    The owner of the site owes no one anything. He's probably blowing rasberries at the losers right now.
    You can't hardly trust a real business with a reputation and an address...why should you trust a perfect stranger in this wild west money grab?
    DON'T TAKE THE VACCINE!

    THE SHIT HAS HIT THE FAN!
