#AceFinanceNews – Australia – March 22 – The authorities are considering extradition to the US of an alleged moderator of Silk Road, a website that used to connect those who wanted to buy illegal goods, such as drugs, and pay for them with digital currency, like Bitcoin.

Last December, three men involved with the Silk Road website were charged with conspiracy to engage in drug trafficking, hacking and money laundering.

Extradition of one of them, native Australian Peter Phillip Nash, 41, from Queensland state, has been demanded by the US.
