Attorney’s Office in the Northern District of Georgia identified an AlphaBay staffer living in the United States. Sticky/Featured Listings are used to highlight your products and bypass other search results. A vendor gets the payment as soon as the package is shipped. Sellers become eligible for the FE status only after they prove that they are trustworthy.
Arrests, indictments, prison time it is all part of the game. Killing a man without any trial and staging it as a suicide is not. Our searches for the truth have led us to believe that he was Epstein’d (or should we say Mcafee’d more recently?) in a way which shocked everyone. He did not deserve that, I knew him and he really was a nice, bright guy who was genuine about the community and people regardless of what he did. AlphaBay has been relaunched by DeSnake in August 2021 with a new design but with the same admin as before, and is once again plan to become the biggest darknet market in history. AlphaGuard which protects wallets of both buyers and vendors in case of police raids on all servers by giving them opportunity to finish escrows, disputes and withdraw funds.
- I think this is irrelevant because the “Encrypt messages/notes with Seller’s PGP Key” box is already ticked.
- I am using an iPhone and just went to the iPhone app store and downloaded an app called Tor Browser.
- Of course, you have every right to be suspicious about this newly emerged AlphaBay’s successor.
- Be part of something bigger, something new, something beneficial to the entire DNM scene, something which comes once in a generation and makes a core change to how people buy and sell in a private, secure and anonymous way.
- This new version will allow markets and vendor shops from all around the world to join and form the future.
- Ugh, hopefully it will come back up so i can snag that URL.
By going through different exchangers what those amateur marketplaces are doing is making them “dirty”. That results in breaking the law and as these exchangers are official companies… arrests, operations and the rest will follow. Monero is a currency which we added previously on our marketplace alongside few others. Currently it is the only available cryptocurrency to use on our marketplace due to its higher security and anonimity. Anyone serious about their privacy should migrate from Bitcoin and the likes, and only use audited privacy coins to do transactions on the darknet. Monero offers the perfect mix between usability, community support, security and anonimity.

AlphaGuard is quite advanced piece of code which can run even without having access to any servers provided by Administration. Alphabay Market has originally been operating from 2014 to 2017 with alpha02 and DeSnake as admins and was the biggest darknet market in history. In July 2017 AlphaBay has suddenly gone offline and it was suspected as an exit scam, however, a few days after it has gone offline, it was revealed that AlphaBay has been seized and alpha02 aka Alexander Cazes was caught. In early July, multiple computer servers used by the AlphaBay website were seized worldwide, and the site’s creator and administrator—a 25-year-old Canadian citizen living in Thailand—was arrested. AlphaBay operated for more than two years and had transactions exceeding $1 billion in Bitcoin and other digital currencies. The site, which operated on the anonymous Tor network, was a major source of heroin and fentanyl, and sales originating from AlphaBay have been linked to multiple overdose deaths in the United States.
Our end goal is to create a fully autonomous, decentralized and anonymous network which can support the creation of a marketplace ‘brand’ by anyone. We will create an ‘AlphaBay’ market on that network and migrate our community, giving users and vendors ability to buy, sell and trade in a decentralized manner. Potentially other marketplaces will join the network as it mitigates their requirements and risk of arrest without giving up management control . Users will be safe to purchase from multiple markets all without the need of trusting any market with their cryptocurrency or registering for each one individually. Vendors will be able to sell on multiple markets seemlessly or even create their own shop while preserving their anonimity and security. When AlphaBay became inaccessible as a result, thousands of its buyers and vendors flocked to the then law enforcement-ran Hansa market to continue their operations.
Asap Darknet Market
To add an extra layer of defense we run our own internal Monero mixer to guarantee even if your transactions get uncovered they will never be linked to you. Haven’t been able to get onto the market since about February 9th-10th. Tried the main link, alternate links, and my private link.
Learn how to use I2P and you will be able to find AlphaBay always online. Until bigger parts of the community move to I2P, we will have Tor mirrors up and running. As the Forum grows, language-specific sub-communities apart from the Russian available one will be created.
AlphaGuard and its systems can not be detected by LE to be taken down and even if they were, there are ‘sleeping cells’ which will make sure the core objectives of the program are fulfilled. Feel free to search us up on the Internet like Wikipedia or news websites for further information/history. Especially when using any public WiFi hotspots you should always use a VPN when accessing the Internet since you don’t know whether the access point is compromised. A VPN ensures that all of your traffic, no matter what application, will always be strongly encrypted when passing the access point, this protecting yourself not only from eavesdropping but also possible identity theft.
One of these, AlphaBay Market, was the most prominent and popular darknet market since the Silk Road. At its height, AlphaBay’s daily sales ranged between $600,000 and $800,000 USD across 300,000 listings for illicit goods, offered by over 40,000 vendors and viewed by some 200,000 users. AlphaBay’s quick growth—or regrowth—has been fueled in part by what Gray calls “the Great Cyber Resignation.” At least 10 dark web markets have dropped offline for various reasons in the last 18 months. Some have been busted by law enforcement, like Dark Market, which was the target of a Europol-led takedown operation early last year; or Hydra, the massive Russian-language drug and money-laundering market whose servers were seized in a law enforcement raid in April. Others, like Dark0de and World Market, are believed to have pulled “exit scams,” disappearing suddenly with their users’ money.
Unless you’re using a FE enabled vendor but if not, the payment should complete after the seller marks it as shipped . And the market recommends never completing an order before receiving it. The AlphaBay escrow service safeguards your funds until the transaction is concluded and the seller is paid.
Market Dark Web
This way you won’t lose any money from your account in case of an exit scam. Some platforms choose to prioritize security, like Versus, some emphasize contribution from the community, such as ToRReZ, while AlphaBay intends to rely on both. DeSnake told WIRED that his former partner Alexandre Cazes often overruled his suggestions about AlphaBay’s security system as excessive and unnecessary. Hence, the current owner plans to implement many of those rejected ideas in his new project. To create a truly secure marketplace that would be impossible to shut down by any law enforcement action.
We do not want to integrate swappers from bitcoin to monero or other currencies to monero. If we do, we would be exposing not only parts of our infrastructure to make the trades but potentially enable LE to halt trades or freeze balances which would result in bad situations for our customers. It is a serious risk which the amateur admins of many of todays most popular marketplaces ignore or are too blind to see only to make a small profit. We have a heavy focus on I2P because we believe it is the future and every DNM user should learn how to use it. To elaborate further, Tor has been neglecting much needed upgrades to how hidden services work for a very long time and it is not only me saying that.
The message contained information about the intended relaunching of AlphaBay marketplace. It would keep the market’s original style and layout, but it would also be much better. AlphaBay only accepts Monero, has strict product restrictions, and doesn’t allow people from certain countries to use it.
