UPDATES 1 - NOVEMBER 13, 2020
It's been a long time since we did not post updates about new markets or the Raptor revamp. As you know, we posted some informations about DarkMarket and Deepsea and we flagged those markets accordingly to protect both buyers and vendors. So, what's up today ? A fresh, new market has been listed. You will find it on the homepage. We have improved the useful links section and removed links that actually turned suspicious. While we are working on the Raptor transition, the Scammers section will not be updated. We actually realized that since the darknet is 99% scams, we could end up with a billion links list, which is pointless. Expect a massive update before the end of the month.

ABOUT APOLLON - JANUARY 28, 2020
Some vendors reported on Reddit that they could not log into their accounts anymore. We do not think Apollon is exiting but just having some piece of maintenance work. Users are advised to message support if they encounter problems with withdrawing or placing orders. We are contacting Apollon support. We will keep you posted as often as possible.
ABOUT EMPIRE, GREY, YB - JANUARY 3, 2020
The Grey and Yellowbrick servers aren't responding for several days which means they may be exit scamming, have been compromised or are having serious issues. Empire is up but captcha is locked (ie : maybe ' purposedly ' locked, like Berlusconi did). In case they would come back to life, we advise everyone to remain very cautious and move to other markets
MESSAGE FROM RAPTOR ADMIN - DECEMBER 29, 2019

I would like to thank all our Dread subscribers, partners vendors shops, Apollon staff, Dark Market staff, BitBazaar staff, Monopoly staff, Avior staff, Sonar team for their backlinks and support. I would also like to thank all the customers that reported nefarious webshops or scammers, because darknet is needing more trust everyday. I would also like to inform all users that the new features we announced a few months ago are finally entering their last testing days. With this new tool, you will be able to easily spot scammers and browse the darknet safer than ever. Finally, we are still open to reputable vendors and shops collaborations, also we are willing to support new markets : if you own a new market that is built on security, you can message me and I will eventually add it to new markets list.

ABOUT TOCHKA & EMPIRE - DECEMBER 8, 2019
All Tochka mirrors are down since more than a whole week. Due to the rotating mirrors on Empire , and the very short time they are up, plus the huge amount of tickets unanswered on that market, we recommend Empire users moving to another marketplace.
ABOUT CRYPTONIA- NOVEMBER 23, 2019
Cryptonia market issued a PGP signed message saying they would restore the market on january 2020. All current disputes would be closed with a 50/50 refund. Maybe they will ' indeed ' come back, but Cryptonia market must be used with care considering it may have been compromised in the meanwhile. We flagged the market with a Warning sign. Samsara market still down. Added 1 mirror for BitBazaar. Updated mirrors for DarkMarket. If you have trouble connecting to DarkMarket using those mirrors, feel free to remove the ref part ('/ref') Stay safe !
UPDATE - NOVEMBER 23, 2019
Added several active Empire market mirrors
UPDATE - NOVEMBER 22, 2019

ABOUT SECMAIL & RAPTOR CHAT- NOVEMBER 4, 2019
Many people, over the past weeks, did ask us why SecMail hasn't been listed as a mailbox provider. That is : why is Torbox better than SecMail in our opinion ? 1. Torbox is relying on donations, while SecMail displays lot of advertisements. 2. These ads are often leading to scam markets / scam shops. 3. We do not want to vouch for a mailbox provider that is fueled by scammers. If you want to run your own alternative to Torbox, you can do it with setting up SquirrelMail on a server : https://squirrelmail.org/
About the Raptor chat. Please do not forget to close your session before leaving the chat page, otherwise you will remain with an online status. If you are unsure people are actually online or forgot to clase their sessions, PM them so they will notice your messages once they connect back.
We may relaunch the forum soon. If volunteers are willing to take care of it - the forum - they can message us on Jabber, Wickr or send us a message to our Torbox.
DEEPWEB MARKETS REVIEW - OCTOBER 23, 2019
Every customer that got scammed with proof , must contact us as soon as possible so we can eventually add the vendor to the scammers section. Too many people fall into obvious traps : cloned credit cards, WU transfers, Paypal transfers (that mostly are blocked once the funds reach their destination).
DEEPWEB MARKETS REVIEW - OCTOBER 5, 2019
Berlusconi market mods stated in their SubDread that they trying to crack their own captcha problems. Market is likely exit scamming and has been removed off the markets list
DEEPWEB MARKETS REVIEW - OCTOBER 1, 2019
Berlusconi seems to encounter problems with login page loading again and again, even if the entered captcha is valid. Some Empire markets mirrors do not work, so you must try them all. We now have a partnership with TAPE news, which is a great deepdotweb-like website. We now also have a Subdread. Go check the links on mainpage !
DEEPWEB MARKETS REVIEW - SEPTEMBER 28, 2019
Genesis has exit scammed and is now removed from the marketplaces list. We are in contact with a forthcoming marketplace owner, which seems very promising. It will be listed up as soon as it will be fully working. Also, thanks to the Monopoly marketplace team to soon add our link as a trusted links supplier ! We believe that the more marketplaces there are, the more LE must put effort in to take them down. There would be no surprise however, one or two marketplaces will dominate the game soon. Stay tuned.
DEEPWEB MARKETS REVIEW - SEPTEMBER 16, 2019
As you can see, we have featured some deepweb markets with a star. The reason is we think those markets have exclusive features, are well-established, or are going to reach the top markets list one day. Genesis market and mirrors have been recently unstable, showing up then off. Some big community in the darknet is experiencing a downtime. Some customers and complain they were not able to withdraw their funds off Genesis, so use with care in the coming days. If nothing changes up quickly, the star will be removed and replaced with the warning sign.
DEEPWEB MARKETS REVIEW - SEPTEMBER 10, 2019
While Berlusconi Market has the most products, Empire Market remains a favourite for many customers. This may be caused by his design that reminds an old popular market. Apollon remains a stable and trustwhorty market with responsive support, while DarkMarket, Genesis , should start growing soon. Amongst those emerging markets, BitBazaar brings new features such as auctions, internal reviews, and various currencies support. Apollon, DarkMarket, BitBazaar, and maybe Monopoly (FE-only) deserve customers attention.
