It’s probably the biggest exit scam of the darknet markets so far. Evolution marketplace has closed down and bitcoin is moving through the blockchain as I write. it’s hard to tell just yet how much of the $12 million that’s gone through that account the administrators have made off with.

I took may Mac to the Genius Bar recently and the genius decided I need to do a full clean reinstall. I had done a Time Machine backup before going, so I didn’t think much of it.
Unfortunately, I foolishly neglected to export my private key to a USB before doing the reinstall. I thought I would get my key back by restoring from the backup. Newsflash: that doesn’t work.
So I can’t decrypt anything encrypted to my old key. Apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
