Ross William Ulbricht (AKA, Dread Pirate Robert's), this 29 year old student made an estimated 80 million in fees within 2 years with Silk Road. It's hard to believe what is possible on the net. They must have seized all of that money because his family is raising money for legal fees on a crowd funding website. He may get out of it. There really is not that much evidence connecting him to Silk Road. He got caught because he got careless. He started posting his real Gmail on programing boards and other sites. They tracked every move after that. If you were brave enough to start a profit making website on the hidden web (TOR), what would your idea be?
