ANNOUNCEMENT: Since the Silk Road 2.0 bust by the feds a few other Darknet Markets have fallen. Silk Road 3 is up and running with a big selection of goods.
After a rather shaky start caused by assertions that it was a honeypot site created by FBI, Silkroad 3.0 has since grown to feature more than 100,000 users who trade in everything imaginable including cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana. The latest reports show that it has around 2,500 drug listings, as well as other items like fake ID and stolen credit card details.
Their introductory page reads that the ite is an anonymous, professional and peaceful bazaar selling all types of products and services. The admin is honored to welcome users to their online community where everyone is truly free with no judgement, censorship or repercussions allowed.
Silkroad 3.0 follows the same blueprint that was started by its predecessors, using a similar title as that which Ulbricht used in his site. The portal employs a user rating policy to ensure that all products being sold are of the highest standards possible, this information is displayed on each seller’s profile page so that future buyers can decide where to buy their items. This system makes buying drugs through the net much safer than when doing so in person.
The Silkroad 3.0 continuously improves its operational security in order to stay ahead of cops who may want to close it. The high level of safety provided for traders has been key in ensuring growth and popularity of the site, despite its relatively few months of operation. Though law enforcement has shown great interest in Silkroad, sometimes even more than customers who buy drugs there, the site has still continued its operations uninterrupted due to the tough security measures it employs.
This website is continuing the legacy that was left behind by Ulbricht and Benthall following their incarcerations, which according to the admin was meant to instill fear as opposed to serving justice. Those who work for it say that their operations are a matter of balancing risk and reward, since cops are still on their case despite the current peace being enjoyed. Users are assured of flexible trading hours since Silkroad 3.0 is available throughout the day and night.
Being an online crypto market for narcotics, the portal can only be accessed by those who use Tor hidden service. Nevertheless, Silkroad 3.0 isn’t an absolutely new marketplace, but was already existing by the name of Diabolus Market where it operated as a “cannabis only” platform before the rebranding. Which was meant to capitalize on public interest triggered by news of the original Silkroad. During its launch, the new administrators claimed that they were actively working with a former staff member of Silkroad 2.0, though this information has not been confirmed yet.
