Mother of Alleged Silk Road Creator Raises Legal Defense Funds at SXSW

Our South by Southwest quest to survive on Bitcoin brought us to Lyn Ulbricht, mother of Ross Ulbricht (also referred to by his online pseudonym Dread Pirate Roberts), alleged creator and operator of the Silk Road online drug marketplace.

She spoke to Fusion to explain why she’s asking the Bitcoin community for help and what her son’s trial could mean for the crypto currency.
