Best Darknet Markets Links | Kingdom Market | DarkMatter Market

This is a list of the best darkweb marketplaces.

I’ve included all the most important aspects for each of these darknet markets.

In other words, you get comparative, easy to understand, detailed insights into each, without having to visit each of these dark web markets individually.

But, before we start, let’s take care of your security?

How to be 100% Anonymous and Secure When Accessing These Darknet Markets?

Darknet Markets are literally the darkest parts of the dark web.

Without serious precautions, you’re looking at life-threatening consequences.

Fortunately, it only takes a few clicks to make yourself untraceable.

I know you’re not planning on illegal activities.

But, leaving yourself vulnerable isn’t the best idea anyway, is it?

Follow these steps, preferably in the given order and you’ll be invisible:

IP-address/network security:

  • Download NordVPN. It’s the only VPN I trust because of its “verified” no-log policy and official “onion over VPN” servers.
  • Launch NordVPN and connect to any “Onion over VPN” server.
  • Download/Update your Tor browser.
  • Disable JavaScript on your Tor browser.
  • Increase the security level of you Tor browser to “safest”.

System security (optional):

These are optional and more hardcore, but quite literally will make you untraceable even for the NSA.

  • Use TAILS. It’s an anonymous, extremely secure OS.
  • Use some kind of disk encryption tool to encrypt your disk completely.

Fund security (optional):

The most easily traceable aspect of darknet transactions? Funds!

Make sure you only use BTC or XMR.

Pass your funds through a Bitcoin mixer before depositing them anywhere.


Accessing any .onion marketplace, including these best darkweb marketplaces isn’t illegal.

However, buying/selling/trading on darknet markets is mostly illegal.

This guide is purely for educational and research purposes.

I do not support or encourage you to get involved in any trade activities on the any of these Tor marketplaces.

I’m also not sure of the legitimacy/authenticity of these marketplaces, or the vendors on these marketplaces.

Hence, any and all activities, including financial transactions, are 100% your own responsibility.

I’ve made it clear that it’s illegal to trade on darknet markets.

If you still choose to proceed, it’ll be 100% your own responsibility.

Tor2door is a multisig market with about 20,000+ products listed. Illegal porn, weapons/poison and hitman services aren’t allowed.  Every other products on the face of the earth can be found on the market.

Being multisig, it’s guaranteed that no one party holds your funds in its complete control at any given time. This massively boosts trust in the market, doesn’t it?

Users must register to access the market. Registration is free and doesn’t require invites. It does accept independent vendors. There’s a $500.00 fee for vendors to join. The sellers must also pay 5% commission on each sale on the market.

For security, there’s 2-FA via PGP as well as a PIN for withdrawals.

Kingdom Market

Kingdom Market was launched in March 2021. It’s rare for markets to not get taken down or exit-scam for a period this long, yet Kingdom is still here.

Kingdom Market is clearly the most product-rich market on this list with nearly 35000 listings today. Users can register instantly for free. There’s no invitation code or payment.

The market isn’t wallet-less, advance deposits are required. Payments can be made via BTC, XMR and LTC.

The overview above should tell you all that is there about the marketplace. It’s a market that has roughly 4000 products. These products span in every category, be it guides, services, drugs, cracked software, counterfeit documents, cards, bank accounts and everything else.

It’s a third-party marketplace. This means, anyone can sell on DarkMatter market as long as they pay the 2XMR deposit fee. The fee is refundable (given the other terms are met).

The market is secure from a buyer’s perspective pertaining to the fact that it’s wallet-less, and only accepts XMR payments.

You even get the more advanced and secure “multiescrow” in case you wish to use it. Other security measures include PIN, 2-FA, recovery phrase, personal phrase etc.

TorZon Market

TorZon Market sells everything from drugs, carded items, jewellery to fake documents. It’s also one of the cheapest markets for vendors as the vendor-bond costs just $25.00 for now.

It’s not wallet-less. For both Cryptocurrencies (BTC/XMR) you get a centralized wallet. Multi-sig transactions aren’t supported for now.

It’s pretty big on security, there’s 2-FA using PGP, a PIN that’s required to login, the anti-phishing code too is available and finally there’s the mnemonic code which lets us recover the account when lost.

World Market

World Market just came up, and yet, it’s already making waves. It seems to be available to everyone due to its cheap prices and liberal requirements.

Liberty Market

Liberty Market is a very fresh market, less than a week out of the womb. Here’s an overview:

  • Vending allowed: Yes
  • Multi-sig transactions: No.

Due to its novelty, you won’t find many products on the market (yet). However, the basic foundation seems to be pretty strong. For starters, it not only accepts Bitcoin payments, but also Monero.

The deposits can’t be made directly on checkout though. They must be made in advance to the marketplace wallet. Also, the addresses are single-deposit only, can’t be used for multiple deposits. There also is a minimum deposit requirement of 0.0005BTC.

Available products include drugs, fake documents, services for hacking and other similar deeds, digital products, software etc. Anyone can register as a seller as long as the vendor-bond is paid, or they’re an established vendor on other established marketplaces.

The profiles are pretty transparent, help verify legitimacy/authenticity of the vendors. Accounts can be recovered using a mnemonic code. 2-FA and security PIN too available.

DarkFox Market

What makes DarkFox one of the best darknet markets in 2021? The fact that it hosts over 4,000 products, accepts Bitcoin payments and is pretty secure. Here’s an overview:

  • of products: 4500+

It even has an autoshop for selling cards. The rare attraction here is its multisig transactions which mak the transactions a lot more secure.  The basic 2-FA via PGP, mnemonic (24-word) for account recovery and security PIN for account security are all available.


ASAP Market

Market Overview:

There are certain aspects which make ASAP market one of the best darknet markets. For starters, it boasts over 7300+ products in its arsenal. Then, it has implemented anti-fake review and anti-scammer measures.

Payments aren’t just Bitcoins but Monero too is accepted. It uses centralized wallet for payments. A low minimum requirement for BTC deposit is set at 0.0005BTC.

Vendors are accepted for $400.00. Surprisingly, it doesn’t offer free vendor accounts even to established vendors rather a more generous offer of a forever “low commission per sale” is offered. They would then pay 2%-3% instead of the default 5% on sales.

DeepSea Market

DeepSea flaunts itself as “the first marketplace coded from scratch”.

It doesn’t use templates or pre-coded marketplace codes.

This essentially means it’s unhackable as far as existing script-side hacks goes.

Despite being coded from scratch, the interface is almost similar to Empire Market and hence users wouldn’t get confused.

It seems to be launched in January 2020.

Here goes the overview:

  • Onion Mirror: hshlpewgid57veduk7k6d6rt2rmyl5d4juif3ncb5oqc6ko6qdkas4id.onion
  • Registration: Mandatory, free, instant, no invites.
  • of products: 5758
  • Security features: Escrow/ PIN/ 2-FA/ Mnemonic code/ login phrase.
  • Accepted Cryptocurrencies: BTC
  • Age: 8 months.
  • Vending fee: $150.00
  • Multi sig transactions: No.
  • Wallet-less: No.


Alike all other best darkweb marketplaces, it too requires registration.

And yes, DeepSea too doesn’t demand an invite, payment or “activation-period”.

The demanded details are an username, a PIN and a login phrase.

As of today, it boasts a user-base consisting of 27319 users.


It’s not extremely product-rich and only has 5758 individual listings as of today.

The most popular categories include Drugs & chemical, Digital products, Fraud, Jewels and gold etc.

The other categories do not have as many products, however, each category has at least a couple listings.

It also has plans to soon integrate an Autoshop.

Restricted products:

Its restriction-list is a bit wider than most other best darkweb marketplaces. The sell/trade of the following isn’t accepted:

  • Illegal porn
  • Money making guides
  • Porn accounts
  • Hitman services.
  • Weapons
  • Fentanyl.

Vending on DeepSea Market

DeepSea Market obviously allows vending.

It requires a vendor-bond of $150.00.

There’s no mention of the vendor fee/bond’s refund-policy.

It does waive this vending-fee if and when the vendor proves his legitimacy on other marketplaces.

The general condition for this is having a vendor account on other marketplaces with at least 50 sales .

Security Features

Upon registration, a 24-digit Mnemonic code is offered which serves multiple security purposes.

Note that it’s required for almost any change to your account. Even when adding PGP keys.

The security PIN and login phrase too can be set during registration.

2-FA via PGP is available, and mandatory for vendors.

Accepted Cryptocurrencies and payment policies

DeepSea Marketplace is limited to “Bitcoin” for now.

However, it sure has plans for ZCash and Monero in the near future.

Isn’t wallet-less.

A minimum limit does technically exist, which is 0.0001BTC.

Unlike most other darknet markets, it also has a deposit fee of 0.3%/transaction.

Icarus Market (Exit Scam)

Probably the newest market on this list. It was launched on 5th April, 2020.

Yet, it has quickly gained immense popularity and repute in the industry.

Here’s the marketplace overview:

  • icarucz2c5b5m24oqip2wjx5qehxr5haecfmgjxxt2otg45tjhlwnrid.onion


Icarus Market does require a registration as well.

Here’s the registration form:

It too is instant and without any verification/invitation.


Despite being just 3 months old, the marketplace already has 23761 individual listings.

The product-categories are the standard darknet categories.

These include drugs, digital products, fraud, carded items, security & hosting etc.

In fact, the category-tags almost seem to be replicated directly from Empire Market.

Sure, the products, listings and vendors differ.

Restricted items:

Icarus Market doesn’t allow the sale of:

  • Illegal porn, (Car)Fentanyl, Weapons.

Vending on Icarus Market

Icarus Market charges a $200.00 vendor-fee.

This fee is non-refundable.

However, considering it’s new, it has waived the fee for established vendors.

Security Features

It may be new, but none of the security features are missing.

There’s a Mnemonic code which facilitates account recovery.

A login phrase to protect users against phishing.

A PIN which can be used for authorizing purchases if and when a buyer chooses to.

And the account login 2-FA via PGP.

As for trades, it doesn’t support Multisig transactions.

However, the traditional Escrow is sure available.

The vendor-transparency for vendor profiles and trade history is offered and is impressive.

Accepted Cryptocurrencies and Payment policies

Alike Empire Market, Icarus Market too accepts:

  • Bitcoin
  • Litecoin
  • And Monero.

It too isn’t wallet-less, and requires advance deposits.

However, note that unlike most other best darkweb marketplaces, Icarus Market has “minimum deposit” requirements.

Currently, it’s 0.0007 BTC for Bitcoin. It changes with time and market-conditions. Similar limits also exist for other Cryptocurrencies.

BTC deposits need 1 confirmations, XMR on the other hand requires 10.

DarkMarket (Seized)

DarkMarket is another one of the most successful and best darkweb marketplaces.

It currently boasts of 194640 users and 1240 vendors.

Note that it’s the only darknet market on this entire list with “restricted countries”.

As in, it doesn’t accept users from:

  • UAE
  • And Russia.

Here’s the marketplace overview:


The registration requires the least amount of details.

Only a username and a password. Unlike others, it doesn’t let you set a PIN/login phrase.


As of today, DarkMarket boasts an arsenal of 44, 227 individual listings.

Drugs is the most well-populated category, followed by digital goods, fraud, software, identification, services etc.

Restricted items:

The trade of the following isn’t allowed on DarkMarket:

  • Organ trade
  • Weapons
  • Hitman services.
  • Illegal porn
  • Animal/violent porn.

Vending on DarkMarket

DarkMarket requires a $400.00 vending fee.

No refund-policies have been mentioned, so let’s consider none exist.

For established vendors with a minimum of 6month of positive feedback on other marketplaces, this bond can be waived.

Note that Finalize Early is available to established vendors on DarkMarket, or, if you’ve 1000+ reviews on other established marketplaces.

Security Features

Let’s be honest, security isn’t the strongest suite on DarkMarket.

There’s no multisig for transactions, no PIN and no login phrase.

A 24-digit Mnemonic code sure exists which can be used to recover accounts.

And, 2-FA for account login can be set via PGP.

Accepted Cryptocurrencies and payment policies

The marketplace accepts payments via:

  • Bitcoin
  • And Monero.

And, it’s the first option on this best darkweb marketplaces list which is wallet-less!

Appollon Market

Appollon Market is one of the oldest darknet markets in existence.

It was born around the same time as Empire Market; on 9th March, 2018.

Appollon Market Overview:

  • Onion Mirror: apollionih4ocqyd.onion
  • Registration: Instant, free.
  • of products: 64, 910
  • Security features: PIN/ 2-FA / Login phrase/ Mnemonic / Escrow
  • Accepted Cryptocurrencies: BTC / XMR / LTC / BTCH
  • Age: 2.5 years.
  • Vending fee: $200.00 (non-refundable.)
  • Multi sig transactions: No.
  • Wallet-less: No.


The registration form on Appollon is the longest we’ve seen so far.

However, you only have to enter an username, a password, security PIN and login phrase.

The other requested information, such as Jabber, ICQ, E-mail etc. can totally be ignored.

Accounts are activated instantly.


Appollon Market even has more products than Empire Market!

Its current listings stand at 64,910 products.

The categories are similar to what most other best darkweb marketplaces offer, such as drugs, fakes, fraud, guides & tutorials, services, hosting & security, carded items etc.

Restricted items:

The standard darknet restrictions apply to Appollon as well; trade of the following is banned:

  • Weapons/explosives/ bullets etc.
  • Illegal porn
  • Fentanyl
  • Hitman services
  • Torture/killing videos (both animals and human).

Vending on Apollon Market

Appollon Market demands a $200.00 vendor-fee for vendor accounts.

This is non-refundable.

Also, unlike other best darkweb marketplaces; a vendor needs to “write a review/description” of the products he/she wishes to sell on the market when applying for the vendor account.

Security features

As the registration form makes clear, Appollon Market offers:

Security PIN : Required to make any account changes, including PGP and withdrawals. Can also be optionally enabled for purchases.

  • Login phrase.
  • 2-FA via PGP can be set as well.
  • And, a 6-digit Mnemonic code.

Accepted Cryptocurrencies and payment policies

Appollon Market allows buying/selling with:

  • Bitcoin
  • Litecoin
  • Monero
  • And Bitcoin Cash.

A minimum deposit limit of 0.0005BTC exists for Bitcoin. Limits for other Cryptocurrencies exist as well.

Bitcoin deposits require 2 confirmations, XMR needs 10 and LTC/BCH require 6 confirmations each.


While most other Darknet markets tend to use the same, or similar interfaces; Cannazon took the road less travelled by.

Its interface is slightly different from most other dark web marketplaces.

However, it’s no harder to use or understand. In fact, I’d say it’s simpler and easier.

Anyway, let’s start with the overview:

  • Onion Mirror: cannazon4gbjluus.onion
  • Registration: Free, no invites required, no wait-period.
  • of products: N/A, Drugs-only.
  • Security features: Escrow/ Multisig / 2-FA / reset code.
  • Accepted Cryptocurrencies: BTC / XMR
  • Age: N/A
  • Vending fee: $500.00 (non-refundable.)
  • Multi sig transactions: Yes.
  • Wallet-less: Yes


Registration is semi-mandatory on Cannazon.

Meaning, you access the product-stock even without registering.

If and when you do register, you only need to enter a username, password and a reset code.


Due to the interface at Cannazon, the exact no. of products can’t be determined.

But, rest assured, it’s no less than Empire Market or Icarus Market’s listings.

However, as the name suggests, CannaZon is a “drugs/narcotic-only” darknet market.

Meaning, no other products are sold.

The current product-categories include Weed, Seeds, Hash, Edibles, Vape pens, etc.

Restricted items:

Any item which isn’t related drugs/narcotics isn’t allowed.

Vending on Cannazon

Cannazon has some pretty specific requirements before it offers a vendor account.

For starters, it doesn’t allow U.S vendors.

As for the vendor-bond, it’s set at $500.00 for now.

However, it’s completely refundable and is returned when the vendor account is terminated willingly by the vendor.

Additional commission/sale too is levied on the vendors.

It starts at 6.75%/sale, and is reduced as the vendor accumulates “points” by selling more products.

The least possible commission is 2.75% for vendors with 17,000 points.

Security features

Again, Cannazon lacks login phrase or a security PIN.

However, users do get to set a “reset code” during registration.

This code can be used to recover accounts if and when lost.

2-FA via PGP is obviously available.

Another aspect which makes it one of the best darkweb marketplaces is that it does support 2 of 2 as well as 2 of 3 multisig transactions.

As far as data-security goes, whatever data exists on your account (tickets/messages etc.) are auto-deleted after 60 days.

Accepted Cryptocurrencies and payment policies

Cannazon accepts payments via Bitcoin and Monero.

Note that it’s a wallet-less marketplaces.

Hence, naturally; no minimum deposit limits exist.

Agartha Market

Agartha Market isn’t a new player in the game either.

In fact, it’s one of the most established marketplaces of all these other best darkweb marketplaces on this list!

My only problem with the marketplace is its interface. It looks like it’s still in the 1990s.

Here’s an overview:

  • Onion Mirror: agarthaourmnyhq3.onion
  • Registration: Free, instant, no-invites required.
  • of products: 170890
  • Security features: Multisig / Escrow/ 2-FA/ PIN / Mnemonic.
  • Accepted Cryptocurrencies: BTC / XMR / DASH/ LTC / BTCH / Vertcoin.
  • Age: N/A
  • Vending fee: 0.04 BTC.
  • Multi sig transactions: Yes.
  • Wallet-less: No.


The registration form looks ancient.

Also note that, you have to specify during registration if you need a buyer, or a vendor account.

Strangely, it even requires you to enter a “country”!

But, it’s still free and instant.


If I had to give you one reason why Agartha is one of the best darkweb marketplaces; I’d say- Product stock/quantity.

It has a massive arsenal of as many as 170890 products!

That’s the highest on this list as far as numbers go.

Note that most of the categories are drug-specific. However, a couple non-drug categories exist as well.

E.g. Cannabis, Opiates, Pills, Stimulants, Performance etc. are the primary categories.

However, Digital items, services and other items are traded as well.

Restricted products:

  • Adult content/porn.
  • Weapons/chemicals
  • Counterfeit money.
  • Fraud-items (accounts/cards etc.)
  • Fentanyl/Crystal Meth/Crack/DNP/THC/Spice/Heroin/Scopalamine.

Vending on Agartha

The vendor-bond is closer to that of Empire Market’s.

It demands a 0.04BTC deposit. This translates to roughly $500 ($474.00 to be exact at current prices.)

On top of this, there also is a 2.5% market commission on each sale.

Vendors at level 4 or higher are eligible for Finalize-Early.

Security features

I love the fact that Agartha supports Multisig-transactions.

Then, it offers a mnemonic code upon registration for account recovery.

A Security-pin which controls security and financial settings too is available.

2-FA via PGP isn’t missing either.

Accepted Cryptocurrencies and payment policies

Agartha secures a spot as one of the best darkweb marketplaces also because of its payment modes.

It accepts the widest range of Cryptocurencies, including:

  • Bitcoin
  • Litecoin
  • Dash
  • BitcoinCash
  • Monero
  • And Vertcoin.

However, note that minimum deposit limits do exist.

BTC deposits must be worth a minimum 0.002BTC.

It’s not wallet-less.

  • White House Market

White House Market isn’t any less impressive than the other best darkweb marketplaces discussed on this list.

It has 174394 all-time registered users, out of which, 54838 are currently active!

The interface too differs from other Tor marketplaces.

Let’s start with the overview?

  • Onion Mirror: auzbdiguv5qtp37xoma3n4xfch62duxtdiu4cfrrwbxgckipd4aktxid.onion
  • Registration: Free, instant, no-invites required.
  • of products: 15542
  • Security features: Escrow/ PGP.
  • Accepted Cryptocurrencies: XMR and BTC.
  • Age: N/A
  • Vending fee: $400.00 (refundable).
  • Multi sig transactions: No.
  • Wallet-less: Yes.


“The” simplest dark web market registration ever.

Just enter a desired username and password, done!

The account is created instantly.


White House Market currently has 15542 products listed.

The categories are pretty unique.

I found forgeries, defence, counter intel, online business to be available.

However, the more common categories such as drugs, software and services are available as well.

Restricted products:

  • Illegal porn
  • Transfers (Pay x, get y amount of money.)
  • Hitman services.
  • Weapons
  • Tutorials
  • Fentanyl
  • Terror-related products.
  • Animal porn.

Vending on White House Market

The vending rules are unique as well.

There’s a $400.00 vendor-bond requirement, which I agree isn’t so unique.

However, it’s refunded.

The refund-policy states that it’s refunded after 40-60 sales. Or, if a vendor decides to leave the marketplace.

It even offers a refund if a vendor account is terminated for rule violation!

It’s also the only .onion marketplace which agrees to waive this fee not only for established, but also for new vendors given there’s enough reason.

Security features

The marketplace is pretty strict with security.

For starters, you can’t do anything except “browsing” the products without adding your PGP key.

Placing orders, accessing wallet, withdrawing and everything else requires PGP, even for buyers.

Even order-messages must be PGP-encrypted!

Then, a PGP-signed verification is presented each time a user visits the marketplace. This ensures they’re on the correct URL.

Strangely, it doesn’t allow 2-FA for login. However, nearly every other click inside the marketplace does require PGP-decryption.

Users can also set “auto-logout” times, the minimum can be 10 minutes, the maximum 48 hours.

Then, the main wallet is stored in cold-wallets (offline.)

It’s also the only dark web marketplace which has an ongoing “bug bounty” program and rewards pentesters for finding bugs in its code.

So yes, it’s one of the most secure and best darkweb marketplaces in the industry.

Accepted Cryptocurrencies and payment policies

For some reason, WHM is limited to Monero (XMR) only.

BTC is accepted but via a third-party; it’s discouraged by WHM.

However, it’s a wallet-less marketplace making it pretty desirable.

A 120-minute payment window is provided for orders.

  • SmokersCo.

SmokerCo. is a market which only sells two primary product-types, “Weed” and “Hash”. Only the market admins sell on the platform, no independent vendors are accepted.

  • Onion Mirror: http://pt2mftbxeczbzufi2v7b3ekmsun4khq6hi7bdjo7w23fsx3easvr73ad.onion/
  • Registration: No
  • of products:14
  • Security features:Escrow/ PIN/ 2-FA/ Mnemonic code/ lundry.
  • Accepted Cryptocurrencies:BTC
  • Vending fee:Single admin
  • Multi sig transactions:
  • Wallet-less:Yes

Registration is not required if you’re simply browsing for the products. The company “guarantees” lowest  prices as it offers a “price-match” feature. If you find the same product at a lower price somewhere else, they match the price.

Being wallet-less, no advance deposits are required. You can add multiple (or single) products to your cart, and pay for them directly from a third-party wallet.

It even offers options when it comes to shipping modes, more expensive modes deliver faster. For now, only Bitcoin is accepted.

They do not delivery to “all” countries on the planet however majority of the locations are served.

Honorable Mentions

Here are a few other darknet markets. These aren’t as popular or successful as the ones mentioned above. However, they do allow buying/trading on the darknet and hence are being listed here.

Scammers and Exit Scams

The markets listed below are no longer functional. They were functional when we compiled this list. As of today, they’re either seized, exit-scammed or are still functional but we received scammer alerts against them.

  • Empire Market (Exit Scam)

Without an argument, it’s “the” most popular darknet market as of today.

Empire Market started right after Alphabay was seized and Alexander killed himself.

In fact, it even had the tagline “In loving memory of Alexandre Cazes” in its earlier days.

The interface too remains identical to the now-defunct Alphabay.


This overview will help you understand Empire Market better:

  • Registration: No invites required, free & instant.
  • of products: 55718
  • Security features: 2-FA/ Mnemonic/ Login phrase / Escrow/ PIN.
  • Accepted Cryptocurrencies: BTC, LTC, XMR.
  • Age: 2.5 years.
  • Autoshop available.
  • Vending fee: $750.00 (non-refundable.)
  • Multi sig transactions: Yes.
  • Wallet-less: No.


Registration is mandatory on Empire Market.

The registration only requires an username, a password, and a 6-digit PIN.

There’s no activation-period or invite required.


I’ve seen Empire Market since it has less than 500 products.

Today, it stands at a product-count of 55718. That’s how many individual listings are currently available.

The currently available products include Drugs, Guides & tutorials, Fraud-related items, Services, Security & hosting, Carded items, Counterfeit items etc.

Restricted products:

It allows the trade of almost everything, except:

Automated shop and Lottery

Empire Market isn’t the best darknet market without reason.

It’s the only marketplace on this list with an Autoshop.

There are two autoshops available, one for cards and the other for accounts.

As the name suggests, these are “automated”.

Buyers can choose the card/account they need and receive it instantly. No vendor-approval required.

Although note that, some vendors have also uploaded other products such as automated trading bots, custom malware etc. to these autoshops which can be purchased directly.

Furthermore, there’s also a $1.00 lottery you can enter.

Choose numbers, if you choose the right number(s), you make a fortune, simple.

Vending on Empire Market

Being the best darknet market also means it’ll be expensive (for vendors.)

It demands a massive $750.00 vending fee.

It’s non-refundable.

But then, it’s a security-measure for buyers.

Scammers wouldn’t risk the amount and hence Empire Market mostly has legitimate vendors.

Security features

Is the marketplace secure?

Without being so, it wouldn’t be the best darknet market now, would it?

Let’s start with account-security?

It offers a 9-digit mnemonic key for account recovery.

Then, users are required to enter a 6-digit PIN during registration. This can be enabled to be used for purchases.

Similarly, a login phrase too is set which is displayed on the user profile dashboards always and forever.

If it’s not available, it means they’ve entered your credentials on a phishing site.

And then finally, the standard 2-FA via PGP can be enabled as well.

As far as security for trade goes, it offers an unbiased Escrow service.

It’s also one of the rare marketplaces which offer Multisig transactions.

So yes, it’s pretty secure.

Accepted Cryptocurrencies and Payment Policies

Empire Market accepts the following Cryptocurrencies currently:

  • Bitcoin, Litecoin, Monero.

There are no minimum limits.

Bitcoins and Litecoins require 2 confirmations each. Monero requires 10.

It’s not wallet-less.

How to choose the best Darknet Markets

Here are a few tips on what you should look for when choosing a market on the dark web:

  • Age: The older the marketplace, the more established, trustworthy and less-likely to scam you it is.
  • Wallet-less modes: This is a lot more secure than centralized-wallets.
  • Multiple Cryptocurrencies: It’s best if you go with markets which accept multiple Cryptocurrencies. BTC and XMR should be your first choices when trading on darknet markets.
  • Transparent vendor profiles: If you can’t verify the history/legitimacy of a vendor, it’s best to avoid them and the market.
  • Multisig transactions: If and when possible, prioritize markets which offer multisig. These are more secure than normal escrows.
  • Vendor fee: Even if you’re not a vendor, markets which have a high vendor-fee generally house more legitimate vendors.

Frequently Asked Questions:

I’ve included the 8 best darkweb marketplaces on this list.

I’m sure you’ve got a couple questions you’d like answered?

Moreover, I’ve used certain terms which are common to the darknet.

However, you may not be familiar with them.

Hence, let me answer some of those.

  • Which is the best darknet market?

Based on reputation, features, security and products, Empire Market is the most successful and best darknet market for now.

  • Is accessing darknet markets illegal?

No, it’s not.

Not all darknet products are always illegal.

Moreover, even if they are, just “accessing” them isn’t illegal.

  • Is ordering products on the darknet illegal?

In most cases, yes.

Even when you order legal products, they may be stolen or carded.

So, as a general rule, trading on the darknet is mostly, if not always illegal.

  • What are wallet-less darknet markets?

These are darknet markets which do not have a centralized “wallet”.

So, you do not need to “deposit” funds.

Rather, alike on clearnet ecommerce websites, you just pay for each order on the checkout page, individually.

This minimizes the risks of an exit-scam.

  • What is the difference between vendor bond and vendor fee?

You must’ve noticed I’ve used these two different terms.

Despite sounding similar, their meaning isn’t identical.

The deposit for a vendor account is called “bond” when it’s refundable.

It’s called a “fee” when it’s non-refundable.

And that concludes this list of the best darkweb marketplaces. Do check back in a few weeks for additional options!

  • Can darkweb payments be tracked back to you?

Obviously! If you use a wallet which knows your identity (maybe via KYC/ identity verification / IP address/ phone number etc.) the Blockchain transactions can be traced back to you with ease.

It’s best to use exchanges and wallets which are anonymous to begin with. Those which do not ask for your identification documents.

  • How to make dark web transactions anonymous?

The simplest answer is to use a Bitcoin mixer/cleaner. You’d be spending a bit extra (2-3% on average) per transaction, however, you’d be completely invisible.

Never send funds from your primary wallet to darknet markets directly. Always route the funds first to a Bitcoin cleaner. On the cleaner, enter the market address where you wish to send your payment.

Similarly, when withdrawing funds from a market, get them sent to a cleaner’s deposit address and then withdraw them from the cleaner to your personal address.
