And the cryptoanarchists come out Wikileaks style with a decentralised information marketplace...

Slur
you're going to hate it.

Introducing Slur
 
Slur is an open source, decentralized and anonymous marketplace for the selling of secret information in exchange for bitcoin. Slur is written in C and operates over the Tor network with bitcoin transactions through libbitcoin. Both buyers and sellers are fully anonymous and there are no restrictions on the data that is auctioned. There is no charge to buy or sell on the Slur marketplace except in the case of a dispute, where a token sum is paid to volunteers.

...

The types of information we expect to see on the Slur marketplace ;


*   Trade secrets.
*
*   Designs for every type of consumer product.
*
*   The source code for proprietary operating systems and high end CAD software.
*
*   Zero day exploits. For the market defined value rather than a price determined by the corporations under the guise of a bounty with the veiled threat of legal action should the researcher choose to sell elsewhere.
*
*   The details of backdoors covertly installed inside industrial and consumer hardware and software.
*
*   Stolen databases. Corporations will no longer be able to get away with an apology when they fail to secure their customers confidential data. They will have to pay the market value to suppress it.
*
*   Proof of tax evasion from disgruntled or underpaid employees. Both the IRS and the public have an interest in that information and the corporations will have to bid to suppress it - a very quantifiable and predictable payoff for the seller.
*
*   Military intelligence relevant to real-time conflicts.
*
*   Aerospace and defense designs.
*
*   Evidence relevant to ongoing trials.
*
*   Unflattering celebrity photos and videos.
*
*   The complete databases of social media sites like facebook.
*
*   Proof of government corruption. Close to an election.

Get your popcorn. Leaks are about to get very real.

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. Period.

If true, this is going to do far more harm than good. Because 90% of the above is flat out irresponsible, harmful and ripe for abuse. And because it allows the opportunity to do it for no reason other than the money, there's no moral high-road it can possibly claim. It seems little more to me than the cyber equivalent of a crackhouse.

If even slightly successful, it will set the stage for the end of the Internet and personal computing as we know it. Because it plays right into government and industry hands. It will provide proof for their talking points about all the criminals and terrorists lurking on every corner of the web. And it will also clearly demonstrate why cryptocurrencies can no longer be tolerated. Because now there's finally a clear and undeniable link between Bitcoin and criminal activities on a large scale. (So long Bitcoin! We barely knew you.)

All it would take is one incident that so little as seriously inconvenienced everybody, and the general public would demand the government DO SOMETHING! And all the government would need to do is let it happen.

And never fear, "the powers that be" will most definitely do something. They've been quietly creating and installing the tools and mechanisms to "take decisive action" for the last twenty years. And they've been impatiently waiting for an excuse to really use them for at least the last ten.

Grab some popcorn? Dream on! I very much doubt it will be very entertaining for very long if things start to roll down that road.

Renegade:
Well, we'll see.

There's enough push back in Australia and Canada now to resist the censors. With the recent incidents there, people immediately spoke up saying, "Leave my bloody freedom alone!"

So, who knows? Most things will likely be low-key secrets from companies that nobody will care about.

I'm hoping for Area 51 leaks!

ALIENS!!! DISCLOSURE!!! :P ;D  :Thmbsup:

LOL! Although it shames me to admit it, I'd very much like to see that too.

But I'd like it even more if weren't exactly "aliens." :P

The real truth about Area-51

 ;D

So they are using Tor?...That should be...pointless :P

http://pando.com/2014/12/21/so-it-begins-operator-of-large-tor-exit-node-cluster-reports-he-has-lost-control-of-his-servers/

Tonight there has been some unusual activity taking place and I have now lost control of all servers under the ISP and my account has been suspended. Having reviewed the last available information of the sensors, the chassis of the servers was opened and an unknown USB device was plugged in only 30-60 seconds before the connection was broken. From experience I know this trend of activity is similar to the protocol of sophisticated law enforcement who carry out a search and seizure of running servers.
