On Wednesday, The New York Times published a search warrant and affidavit served upon a Pennsylvania man whom federal prosecutors accuse of running a backup server on behalf of the Silk Road, the Tor-and-Bitcoin-enabled digital drug marketplace.
The newly published documents (which are dated from September 2013) specifically mention JTAN, a small hosting firm based in Easton, Pennsylvania that accepts payment in Bitcoin and previously offered “Privacy Services.” It also sells its services via anonymous accounts.
The hosting company’s site states, “JTAN offers accounts and services without requiring you to tell us your name or physical address. Regardless of the fact that you attempt to remain anonymous, all JTAN account Terms and Conditions remain in effect.”
