Dream Market Shuts Down: Has the DEA Claimed Another Darknet Victim?

After almost six years in operation, Dream Market is calling it quits. CCN has confirmed rumors of the shutdown. Since the original message was unsigned, there is some confusion about its derivation. Has law enforcement thoroughly co-opted the platform, and plans to move it to a new market which is a total honey trap? As the poster on Dread says, “Only law enforcement knows.” Moving to a Partner Market — Or Overtaken By DEA? Users on the dark web’s version of Reddit initially weren’t sure if the news was real or not. Dream has been in operation so long, it’s

MtGox Civil Rehabilitation claims now open. EVERYONE WHO CLAIMED IN THE PAST MUST CLAIM AGAIN.

Announced today on MtGox's website:https://www.mtgox.com/

People who never claimed in the past should be able to claim under Civil Rehabilation, so it is not too late.

Deadline is October 22nd 2018 to fill a claim. If you lost your credentials/old email used to sign on MtGox, you will not be able to claim online and will need to claim offline, so DO NOT WAIT.

If you submitted a claim in the past on MtGox or with Kraken, YOU NEED TO CLAIM AGAIN. The procedure changed from bankruptcy to civil rehabilitation and you need to submit a claim. I believe you might lose your claim if you do not submit one under the civil rehabilitation process as bankruptcy is no longer in play. Kraken is also no longer involved.

Under civil rehabilitation, your claim is not a fixed price per BTC at time of commencement of bankruptcy. Everyone will be entitled to their fair share of all remaining BTC held by the trustee. Claims will not be locked in at the 50058.12 JPY valuation per BTC and Mark will receive nothing. Value from claimed forks (BCH, etc) will also be distributed or sold then proceeds distributed.

All documents are published on the website. It's a long read, but all the details are there.

How are transaction fees claimed from a technical point of view?

A typical transaction has one or more inputs and one or more outputs. Since there is no amount specified for inputs, the rule is that ALL of the inputs is always transferred. Any discrepancy between the value contained in the inputs and the total value of the outputs is lost forever.

When a transaction is first submitted there may be a discrepancy between the values of the inputs and outputs. The miner assembling the block may redirect that unaccounted for difference to themselves or any address they wish, called a “transaction fee”, however my question is how do they do this?

It would seem the only way to do this would be to add new output to the transaction and new script to send the value to the output. So in other words the miner would change the transaction from the form submitted by the original poster, to a new form including the fee transmittal.

However, isn’t the transaction hashed to prevent someone from altering it? If a miner can alter it, why not alter it to just direct all the input to themselves?
