Dark net sites hide a user's identity by routing their traffic through a series of computers. They have been associated with illegal activity so many of them are being shut down in a global raid.
The US is going to sell its hoard of nearly 30,000 Bitcoins accumulated from the FBI's closure of the Silk Road last year in blocks of 3,000 BTC in an online public auction on June 27th.
