Amazing. Horrible investment strategy in the big scheme of things though. Lucky and unpredictable.

Sigh. I knew about bitcoins in the early days and wrote them off as a joke.

Can he get arrested for that? Since it's the deep web, where people hire hitmans, buy drugs and stuff like that.

Bitcoins aren't part of the deep web. You can buy them on normal websites with normal web browsers and are accepted on legal websites. (like Reddit for Gold memberships). They can't arrest you for buying a currency just because its sometimes used for illegal transactions..
I wish I knew about bitcoins before the value skyrocketed. My family could really use 800k.
