In his newest film, Deep Web: The Untold Story of BitCoin and The Silk Road will tell the story of the past ten years of expansion within these networks, giving an in-depth analysis of The Deep Web which accounts for at least 96% of the world wide web and the Silk Road which, until recently, allowed anyone with an internet connection to anonymously purchase a variety of illicit substances using the peer-to-peer crypto-currency known as Bitcoin. Feel free to donate here to the upcoming “definitive, behind-the-scenes account of the rise of the Deep Web; one of the most riveting and important stories of the decade.” Bold words. Bold words.
