A Letter to Ross Ulbricht From The Crypto Show

This letter to Ross Ulbricht was written by Danny Sessoms of The Crypto Show. Hey Ross, It’s Danny at The Crypto Show I wanted to wish you a happy birthday and let you know you’re not forgotten. I just returned from the Anarchapulco conference where we packed up a lot stuff that people donated to you and we sold it there raising another $748. Mostly in Bitcoin I might add. It was just Tshirts and stickers and such but everyone was glad to help. Roger Ver was the first customer of course. We continue to push forward on the website page we created for you as well.

Happy Birthday Ross Ulbricht: A Letter From Lyn to Bitcoin.com

This letter to Ross Ulbricht was written by Lyn Ulbricht. Ross will spend his 32nd birthday (his third in prison) on March 27, Easter Sunday. I think of Easter as a time of hope and resurrection, and pray that this next year will be that for Ross. On one of my birthdays, when I commented on getting older, Ross said, “No big deal Mom. A birthday is just another trip around the sun.” But it is not easy, and is often crushing, to watch your early 30s pass by as you spend day upon endless day, month after month, year after year in what is virtually a cage.

As the Senior Editor for Bitcoin.com, I thought this idea was brilliant and felt compelled to write a letter of my own. A physical copy of this letter will be sent to Ross for him to read. Hopefully, Ross will be able to respond to this letter....

Dear Ross Ulbricht: A Letter on His 32nd Birthday|Jeffrey Tucker

This letter to Ross Ulbricht was written by Jeffrey Tucker. Dear Ross, Happy birthday! It’s impossible to say “hope all is well” to a great man unjustly imprisoned by the state, so I’ll just skip the pleasantries. We’ve not met, but I’ve followed your work for many years. We have a shared interest in human rights, freedom, and the beautiful anarchy of digital spaces. Starting around the same time, we both developed the conviction that this would be our future, and we were impatient for it to get here. One hundred years of a failed administrative state is more than enough.
