List of darknet markets for investigators

Updated February 2021: 

Here is Part 2 of this research, both posts should be read in conjunction with one another.

The last 18 months were very successful for law enforcement agencies investigating dark web marketplaces all around the world.

2019 and 2020 marked some pretty impressive takedown operations, enough to think that it would lead to a reversal of the whole underground darknet marketplace trend and the way criminals do business over TOR.

And while the illegal drugs landscape did shift towards smaller, locally operated, social media or communicator app based services, the growth and development of new darknet markets is evident.

Recently some of the most infamous darknet markets were either taken down by law enforcement and their admins arrested (Dream Market, Wall Street Market) or exit scammed and vanished, resulting in vendors and customers losing millions (Empire Market).

And yet there are probably more DNM platforms operating than ever before.

Last year I made a brief outline of methods of conducting OSINT on .onion sites and what information can have intelligence value.

The darknet market landscape last year was quite different to what it is now…

So this time around, I created a list of darknet markets that I personally researched and identified.

This list is by no means exhaustive, but it paints at least a partial picture of what entities operate and enable criminality on the darkweb.

    1. venus anonymous market is not a scam? when I order, it asks me for an order of a minimum of $ 500? is this normal?

      1. Do not send another cent. I made an order for $100 worth and then they ask to make order to $200, once I did that then they asked to make it $300. I never got a single thing sent to me.

      2. JustAnotherUser

        It’s sad to see that most of them are closing down or just straight up exit scamming…thank god DeepDot Market is still active.
