Users on the Silkroad 3.0 are complaining that they are having captcha issue on the site. Initially, captcha was working just fine, and one could even drag it into a new tab and jot it down.
However, a few moments later after submission people started noticing increased loading times, later followed by total rejection of their submitted data which was labeled as “incorrect.”
Putting the code on a new tab is also not working for most people; neither changing their Tor identity.
ANNOUNCEMENT: Silk Road 3.0 is BACK ONLINE and open for business. The team did a massive security overhaul on the site to try and make it more secure and anonymous.
Most people are reporting total frustration and anxiety with this particular situation.
All attempts to log in simply result in a full restart of the page, followed by a message indicating that information provided is inappropriate.
Due to their frustration, many Silkroad 3.0 users have tried all manner of techniques to solve the captcha problem, such as using different VPN and image drag trick. But unfortunately, none of them has been successful.
Nevertheless, there are those who are more optimistic claiming that the servers might be down, and once they come back up again, things would be fine.
They say Silkroad 3.0 is probably doing some temporary maintenance work which will soon be over.
But this is unlikely considering that the Silkroad forum is also down.
Though things are not looking good for Silkroad 3.0 traders, there seems to have been a previous warning sign which people didn’t take quite seriously.
Before the captcha problem arose, the messaging system was slow, and there also seems to have been an increased surge of traffic, resulting in orders being queued long hours for processing.
These were clear indications that there was a problem somewhere forthcoming.
Most people who tried placing orders during this period before the Silkroad login issues emerged experienced hours of delay in processing, probably because there was a surge of too many individuals buying at the same time.
For a moment, some individuals were able to get past the captcha issue, though later on they were rebooted off and taken back to login page, which according to them was really weird.
It’s also emerging that there’s a site that can close down urls for up to four days, in order to track data typed in by users.
This is probably why people are finding it hard to access the Silkroad login page because the captcha code serves as a form of protection for the site.
However, not everybody is satisfied with these particular developments; they claim the problem has caused them a lot of money, particularly considering that they seem to be re-emerging over and over again with time.
As the issue persists, some people have tried getting into the Silkroad 3.0 site by using three different Tor identities, luckily one of the hidden searches showed a Silkroad page.
Though users could access it, the site looked strange and had a green background instead of the normal black and blue.
Some users could login in from their typical Silkroad 3.0 username and password, thus making it difficult to understand what was really going on.
Despite this, other users raised concern that it might be a fake replica of the Silkroad 3.0 and hence people should tread carefully.
