Ulbricht, who created the dark web black market Silk Road in 2011, will release a new collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on September 18. NFTs are blockchain assets which can be exchanged for unique items or other digital collectibles with no possibility of duplication

Ross Ulbricht, the creator of Silk Road and convicted drug dealer, is launching a new NFT collection. The collection will include rare items such as paintings by Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol.

Silk Road Creator Ross Ulbricht to Drop New NFT Collection

Robert Ulbricht is a criminal in the eyes of the law. Currently serving 9 years of a double life sentence + 40 years in prison, with no chance of release. His alleged offence was to create and maintain a website. The Silk Road, on the other hand, is the site in issue. Robert Ulbricht is publishing an NFT collection to draw attention to his circumstances and concerns affecting his fellow prisoners.

The ten-strong collection, which will be auctioned off on SuperRare on December 2 during Art Basel in Miami, highlights Ross’ creative endeavors while confined. The earnings will go toward Ross’ release efforts as well as “Art4Giving,” a nonprofit organization that supports those who have family members who are jailed.

Ross’ sentence is seen as a grave injustice by many, since he is spending time meant for dangerous offenders, and an internet petition seeking for pardon has gathered over 500,000 signatures. Faced with the possibility of spending the rest of his life in prison, Ross will redouble his attempts to be released by reaching out to the NFT community.

Entropic created the collection, which is powered by KanonDotArt’s KSPEC protocol, an open-source NFT program created by a pseudonymous group of art and design experts who boldly boast that it “unlocks God Mode for NFTs.”

Between 2011 and 2013, the Silk Road allowed users to trade anonymously online using Bitcoin as a medium of exchange. The website made use of the Tor network to sell a wide range of goods, some of which were not fully legal. As a result, the US government used Ross as a “example” in court proceedings.
