‘Assassination market’: Bernanke tops ‘kill-list’ in crowd ...

I suspect this "Assassination Market" is an anti-BTC stunt. Who benefits most if so?

As many of you have no doubt read, yesterday Forbes reported on the rising "Assassination Market" whereby you can crowdfund killing people like Ben Bernanke with BTC.
The story reads, "Kuwabatake Sanjuro, who pointed me towards his recent creation: The website Assassination Market, a crowdfunding service that lets anyone anonymously contribute bitcoins towards a bounty on the head of any government official".
So ONE DAY before the Senate hearing on BTC, some mysterious guy on the internet informs a BUSINESS publication of his MURDER BTC crowdfunding site. Of course, Forbes highlights the fact that Bernanke is on the hitlist, cause who would we evil, anti-regulation BTC users want to kill more than the Lord of Currency himself.
The timing of this revelation and article seem extremely suspicious to me. It'd be beyond easy for anti-BTC activists to invent this Assassination Market and play up fears of BTC-using anarchists using it to kill public officials. So, my question is, who would benefit most from this fabrication?
I know I'm basically asking for conjecture, but I'm interested in what the community thinks.
