The Dark Web markets

Invictus dark web Market
Invictus Dark Web Market

The “dark web” is simply a subset of the “deep web”. The deep web is just the part of the web that is not visible or accessible by regular search engines. Using google or bing will not take you to these websites. The “dark web” is a smaller part of the deep web that can’t be accessed without special software.

The dark web exists on the dark net, which is a collection of “overlay networks”. They’re built on top of the normal everyday Internet, but they require specialized software to access, so they aren’t normally visible or accessible to people who do not know them.

The primary objective here is to get you a list of the best dark web markets, this list will be modified weekly and new dark net markets will be added, arguably comprising of the best Tor marketplace at any given time, along with very detailed, description of the dark net marketplace’s most essential features without you having to access the marketplace.

I will also include some necessary precautionary tools and tweaks to help keep you safe on the Darkweb, along with explaining the details of these marketplaces.

DEFUNCT MARKETS

These are defunct dark web markets, we try to state the reasons why they are no longer in operation.

Dream Market

Dream Market was an online dark web market that started operation in 2013. Dream Market allowed online users to browse anonymously and securely. Dream marketplace had a variety of content, ranging from drugs to stolen data, and counterfeit goods. Dream was the longest running dark web market, running from 2013 to 2019. Dream provided an escrow service, with disputes handled by staff. The market also had an accompanying forum, hosted on a different onion URL, where buyers, vendors, and other members of the community could interact.

Dream became the dominant darknet marketplace after the seizures and shutdowns of the AlphaBay and Hansa dark web markets in July 2017 as part of Operation Bayonet. Before that, Dream Market had been considered the second-largest darknet marketplace, with AlphaBay being the largest and Hansa the third-largest. Many of the vendors and buyers from AlphaBay and Hansa darknet markets registered on Dream Market in the aftermath of Operation Bayonet.

At the time, Dream Market was reported to have as much as “57,000 listings for drugs and 4,000 listings for opioids”.

A banner was added to Dream market on March 24, 2019 announcing its shutdown. Dream market shutdown on April 30, 2019.

Alphabay Market

AlphaBay dark net marketvwas the largest dark web market of it’s time. It was shut down after law enforcement seized it in Operation Bayonet in the United States, Canada, and Thailand, which was reported on 13 July 2017.

At the time of the shut down, AlphaBay had:

  • more than 400,000 users
  • $600,000 – $800,000 in transaction volume per day
  • more than 369,000 listings
  • 10x the size of Silk Road
Alphabay stats

AlphaBay was recognized in the world of darknet markets for accepting alternate cryptocurrency in addition to bitcoin; support for Monero, which is more anonymous, was implemented at the end of August 2016.

AlphaBay is reported to have launched in September 2014, it was pre-launched in November 2014 and fully launched on December 22, 2014. It saw explosive growth, with as many as 14,000 new users in the first 90 days of operation. The darknet informer website Gwern.net placed AlphaBay Market in the top tier of markets regarding the 6-month survival probability and it had proven to be successful. In October 2015, it was recognized as the largest online dark web marketplace.

Alphabay dark web market
Wall Street Market

Wall Street Market was one of the most contemporary as well as innovative deep web marketplaces on the darknet. With time, Wall Street market got more and more famous, despite being a new market on the dark web. Wall Street Market dealt with digital goods, then drugs.

Wall Street Market had a lot of features, that included: a user rating system, an award system and an EXIF remover aiding in uploading images.

Wall Street market was shut down by law enforcement in 2019 after the market administrators tried to pull off an exit scam. They were caught in the process.

Berlusconi Market

Berlusconi Market was an italian market with claims that their vision was to be the darknet’s most customer centric darknet market.

According to Berlusconi dark web market staff:

Berlusconi Market is a darknet market on the Tor network, devoted to the sale of various items, both legal and illicit. Berlusconi Market uses Bitcoins, Litecoin and Monero as currency, which allows for near-instant payments and total anonymity when used correctly. The market’s primary focus is pharmaceuticals and chemicals, but other item categories exist as well.

The berlusconi market admins were arrested in italy, according to Italian police investigation into berlusconi market started in may 2019.

Evolution Market

Evolution Marketplace or often called “Evo” started out as an escrow service on Tor Carding Forum (TCF) around June 2012 before they actually opened their doors as a marketplace in January 2013.
According to an ex-staff member Evolution Market’s operators exit-scammed and got away with around 130.000 BTC in 2015.

Abraxas

Abraxas market was a market which specialized mostly in selling drugs. There were separate tabs for each category making this marketplace quite well organized. Aside from drugs one could find other items including various digital goods, services and other listings.

Admins did an Exit Scam on November 6th, 2015 and stole users bitcoins.

Acropolis

Acropolis Market employed a user friendly multi sig escrow payment system. The Market was a referral only market.

Aero

Aero Market was a promising new market showing up after the fall of HANSA and Alphabay in 2017. It quickly took prominance amidst the Trade Route exit scam, to become seemingly the fastest growing market in recent years, unfortunately exit scamming with millions in crypto, only 2 months after launch.

Agora

Agora was the largest drug market on the dark net. BTCfog publicly showed support of Agora when it first launched (It used to be a very trusted source); since then, this dark net market has proven itself to be ultra-reliable on more than one occasion. Agora Marketplace required a referral link (Agora Invite) to register both as buyer and as vendor.

Apollon

This dark web market Exit scammed.

Black market Reloaded

Black Market Reloaded marketplace which sold illegal drugs and other illegal goods such as stolen credit cards and firearms. Its popularity increased dramatically after the closure of Silk Road, its largest competitor. In late November 2013, the Admin (Backopy) announced the market’s closure due to an unmanageable influx of new customers following the collapse of Sheep Marketplace and Silk Road.

CGMC

The Cannabis Growers and Merchants Cooperative (CGMC) was a private, invite-only marketplace. Since June 2016, they have been offering the finest in cannabis products and mushrooms. Co-op vendors are carefully screened so our vendors are the best on the darknet.
If you like cannabis –this was definitely the place to be.

Cannahome is considered to be the spiritual successor of CGMC.

Cryptonia Market

Cryptonia was a relatively new market created in 2018 which shifted his priorities on security rather than a fancy UI.
It has a minimal trust model, supports 2/3 Multisig and optionally offering an Electrum plugin to make the process easier. Cryptonia doesn’t support on-site wallets. Rather than sending your funds to an insecure market wallet, Cryptonia creates a new wallet for each order and allows you to track your funds on the Bitcoin blockchain at all times. It also had the strongest anti-phishing measures for its time.

Despite all security measures they exitscammed in 2019.

Evolution Market

Evolution Marketplace or often called “Evo” started out as an escrow service on Tor Carding Forum (TCF) around June 2012 before they actually opened their doors as a marketplace in January 2013.
According to an ex-staff member Evolution Market’s operators exit-scammed and got away with around 130.000 BTC in 2015.

Hansa

HANSA Market was one of the more sophisticated marketplaces around and has been founded in 2015.
Secure, Feature Rich, Well Designed and easy to navigate, all of which are done to perfection.
It was the first and only market with a completely trustless payment system:


Forced multisignature for all transactions.
At no time HANSA admins or staff had total control over any funds on the market which is something totally unique up until today.
Hansa Market has even made it clear that they absolutely do not allow Finalizing Early and encourage users to report any vendors requesting an FE. FE has become a popular option on other markets and many vendors refuse to go any other route due to issues with darknet markets pulling major exit scams and vanishing with all the bitcoin stored in escrow. Though with the Multi-Sig Escrow system exit scams are not a concern for users of the HANSA Market.

With the closure of AlphaBay in July 2017, it was predicted to become one of the leading markets. However on July 20, 2017 it was revealed that it had been compromised by law enforcement for several weeks before closing shortly after AlphaBay as a culmination of multinational law enforcement operation called ” Operation Bayonet”.

On June 20, 2017, German police arrested the administrators (two German men) and the Dutch police were able to take complete control of the site and to impersonate the administrators. Their plan, in coordination with the FBI, was to absorb users coming over from the upcoming AlphaBay shutdown and gain intel on vendors and customers.

Middle Earth

Used traditional Escrow and uses (optional) Javascript but offered an option to disable it.

middle earth dark web market

Nucleus market

In April 2016 the large Nucleus marketplace collapsed for unknown reasons, taking escrowed coins worth 5000 BTC with it.

Oasis Market

Oasis exit-scammed and got away with around 150 BTC and an undisclosed amount in XMR.


The exit of Oasis Market came at the time when it was rising up the ranks of darknet marketplaces, alongside AlphaBay, Silk Road 3, Dream Market and others. The notoriously promising dark web marketplace was one of the few to start accepting Monero alongside Bitcoin payments from the customers.

Olympus Market

A once promising market destined to fail due to its poor marketing and overall bad administration exit-scammed after the community turned against it.

Outlaw

Despite being a “scene veteran,” Outlaw has never been among the most popular marketplaces either. Even then, the platform had a loyal customer base, and some new faces would pop up every now and then. It is a big mystery as to why this marketplace has disappeared all of a sudden. The administrators claim they were hacked, although the overall community seems to believe this is a clear exit scam.

Silk Road

Silk Road was an online black market and the first modern darknet market, best known as a platform for selling illegal drugs.
The website was launched in February 2011.
In October 2013, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) shut down the website and arrested Ross Ulbricht under charges of being the site’s pseudonymous founder “Dread Pirate Roberts”.
Ulbricht was convicted of eight charges related to Silk Road in the U.S. Federal Court in Manhattan and was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.

Silk Road 2

Silk Road 2 was a clone of the original dark web market, of the same name. It launched in 2013 almost immediately following the seizure of its predecessor. The market came to an end along with a large amount of other darknet services during an international Law Enforcement effort “Operation Onymous”.

Trade Route

After rising in popularity following the 2017 seizure of both AlphaBay and Hansa Market (Clearnet Link), Trade Route became the largest marketplace next to Dream and had a fairly steady run up until severe security vulnerabilities were published to Reddit by “HugBunter” following a lack of interest from Admins when the problems were reported. Only weeks following them denying this announced hack of the dark web marketplace, they shut the market down stealing an estimated $10m in Bitcoin in an apparent exit scam. It was later revealed that another third party of the name “Phishkingz” had exploited vulnerabilities in the platform, which lead to him extorting the dark web market.

Valhalla

Finnish only dark web marketplace turned international and available in English, exists since October 2013. Offers both traditional escrow & multisig, 2FA and forced PGP, recently turned invite only and require a referral link to register as a buyer or a vendor (which you can find above). Was recently rebranded and now called “Valhalla”.

Seized during Wall Street Market seizure.

Empire Market

Empire Market is a dark web market designed to look very much like Alphabay, it is regarded as an alternative market to Alphabay, all old time users of Alphabay will be comfortable with the familiar user interface.

Originally called Omega Bay market it was launched on February 1st 2018, it is regarded as the leading darknet market.

Empire dark web market is undoubtedly the number one darknet market, with over 4,300 vendors. The Alphabay look it has always meant that it would be very popular and easy to navigate.

Empire Market is so Alphabay like, that it is literally an “Alphabay Clone”.

Now normally that would be a negative factor righbut they were open about it and they most likely did it because Alphabay inspired them, and because Alphabay was popular, and was easily understood by users, it’s an added advantage.
