The Arab Spring provided a taste of what happens to sovereign leaders when the people reach a tipping point and have nothing left to lose. But in the West, assassinations are most often done through killings for hire. And whether assassinations are paid for by a Federally backed agency (CIA), or through the myriad of contract mercenaries like the former company Blackwater, more often than not, the ones ordering the killing are never touched in an investigation, or even along the money trail.
But perhaps there is now a third option, and that is the public funding of assassinations. In a new discovery found on a ‘dark web’ portal in the digital world of Bit Torrent, anonymous donors can offer bitcoin in a sort of ‘crowdfunding’ mechanism to hire killers to take out politicians, world leaders, and even, the head of the Federal Reserve.
