Case 76

Silk Road

(Part 1)

[Part 1 of 3]

Pennsylvania State University student Ross Ulbricht had been fascinated with mathematics and science from a young age. During his college years, he developed a new fascination with libertarianism, a political philosophy that values individual freedom above all else. For Ross, this became more of an interest – it became a way of life. 

Combining his libertarianism beliefs with his interest in computers, Ross came up with the idea to create a free trade, an untraceable online market that operated outside of government regulations. His vision soon became a reality, and The Silk Road was born.
