We are excited to return with the first edition of the Dark Web Pulse for 2022. A quick reminder for those who have missed the last edition, this is our cyber team’s revamped newsletter, bringing you our latest findings from the darkest corners of the darknets.
ToRReZ Market, which launched in September 2020 as a “community-driven market,” recently announced their retirement, shortly after other known marketplaces, the White House Market and Cannazon, revealed they were closing.
In his first message, Mr_blonde warned against using established marketplaces, saying that markets grow closer to collapse as they age: “I would personally avoid any “established” market as older they get, bigger chance of collapsing is. Please give a chance to the smaller markets, which are not that loud as others. This is exactly how we became no 1 – being quiet and doing our job, serving customers 24/7 for 675 f***ing days.”
Traditionally, retiring markets have advised users to migrate to certain “friendly” markets or equally well-established markets. In the past, “Mr. White”, the administrator of White House Market, encouraged users to move to Monopoly Market or Versus Market when they announced they were shutting down.
