Using the alias SuperTrips, a 22-year-old Dutch man dealt drugs including cocaine, ecstasy and LSD for millions of dollars worth of the virtual currency bitcoin through a black-market website, a U.S. prosecutor said.

Cornelis Jan Slomp of Woerden, the Netherlands, facing a single drug trafficking conspiracy count, agreed to plead guilty, according to a statement issued today by U.S. Attorney Zachary T. Fardon in Chicago and Slomp’s lawyer.
