AlphaBay, one of the most important sites trading weapons, drugs, and prostitution on the Dark Web, was recently broken by the FBI. Based on the data obtained from the site, it was understood that a 26-year-old American named Bryan Connor Herrell ran the site.
He mediated 20 thousand shopping
Along with Herrell, data on purchases made up to 2017 were also captured. It was also determined that Herrell received payments in Bitcoin for purchases on the site and was a watchdog to ensure that the shopping went smoothly.
Herrell has also been found to have carried out more than 20,000 illegal transactions to date. The court tried Herrell with a 20-year prison sentence and sentenced him to 11 years in prison.
