Following the news, Bitcoin's value began to collapse.
Here's a chart that shows Bitcoin's collapse today. You can see where exactly where the Silk Road news hits.
This small collapse mostly comes from daytraders which sold high after reading the news yesterday, in the hope to get a cheaper entry point.
April was a real collapse. This one just shows how "small" Silk Road really was in the btc economy.
Some bitcoiners argued all the time the last years, if Silk Road gets busted, then btc is dead. And now nothing really bad happened.
This is a day to celebrate, the badest argument against btc is now gone.
