Sheep becomes next black market to close

In the wake of the demise of Silk Road, two more black markets have shut down.

Sheep Marketplace was the first to close and claims to have been robbed to the tune of $6 Million (5400 Bitcoin).

However, Sheep’s owners are accused of using the theft to justify withholding its users’ funds. They say the closure is no more than an orchestrated movement of the crypto-currency which, they say, began in mid-November.

Meanwhile Black Market Reloaded admins announced a similar intention to close up shop. They blame Tor technology for not being able to withstand the burgeoning traffic to their sites – but remain online.

Despite federal raids on Silk Road, and the earlier closure of Atlantis, two major markets remain in DeepBay and Budster.
