In deep web, people conduct a large number of illegal works like arms trafficking, drug trafficking with this feature. The ancestor of these illegal markets was Silk Road, which was created with the support of Ross Ulbricht.

Several registration cases of Satoshi Nakamoto occurred, but every one of them disappeared. Craig Wright is the biggest example. Although there is not much information about Nakamoto, it is a fact that today he has 1 million Bitcoins. This corresponds to a fortune that makes him a billionaire.
