Last year I created a v-carved sign of the Silk Road Logo on my CNC in honor of Ross Ulbricht’s 37th birthday. It has rapidly become my best selling sign in my catalog to date and this year I decided to step up my game by making a series of 10 epoxy filled inlaid wall hangings of the logo to be auctioned off to raise money for the Free Ross Foundation.

For those who are unaware, Ross founded a website called The Silk Road which was a darknet marketplace where primarily drugs were bought and sold using cryptocurrency. When he was arrested he was accused(but never formally charged with) of paying to have someone killed, and his defense was never permitted to present evidence that disproved those allegation even though those allegations were used to give him a much harsher sentence.

In my opinion there is no question that Ross founded the website and ran it, but he was given 2 life sentences plus 40 years because the judicial system wanted to make an example out of him, not because his crimes warranted that degree of punishment.

Having made a decent amount of money in cryptocurrency this is one of the few bits of activism I regularly participate in. I think that Ross will one day be free, but it will be a long road for him.

Deep Web is an excellent documentary about the Silk Road case for all who are interested!

Below is one of original signs I made last year that led to this project:
