The darknet is tiny. Market revenue is an insignificant rounding error in the global drug economy. Why do governments invest so much energy in hunting Tor users? Darknet arrests are not a war on drugs. This is the war on anonymity. Learn to hunt criminals, then hunt activists.

Dream Market fentanyl vendor Chems_USA sentenced to 17 years in prison, ordered to forfeit $4,156,198.18. They ordered gold bullion in their real name, using a Bitcoin wallet associated with their Dream vendor account. darknetlive.com/post/fentany…

Good public OPSEC is indistinguishable from LARPing. Many 'OPSEC slips' can be strategic red herrings. Reckon your favourite anon is from a particular country, has certain interests, and speaks too openly? possibly- or they're really committed to protecting their freedom.

"Empire Market" has not been mentioned in public USA court records since their exit scam. (dockets, documents) Email me if you like doing legal research, have experience searching USA, UK, German, and Netherlands courts, and would like a freelance gig.

It took 3 hours to dismantle this operation at swaplab.io (stealing money via cloned site SINCE FEBRUARY).. took over their Google presence, set fire to their Google rank, and destroyed their operations. I had fun. *Took abt a week of prep to pull this off

We'll see if the Trump tax leaker's sentence surpasses Reality Winner's. Activists and whistleblowers: use TAILS and lawyer up early.

Dread's DDoS filter sometimes gets stuck in a refresh loop, DDoSing themselves. Seems to happen on old tabs.

Don't stake your freedom on one piece of software. Verify daily: is Tor leaking my IP? is Javascript really disabled? Store no data on your local devices. Use TAILS. #activistOPSEC

Contrary to Hollywood and LE's exaggerated press releases, no major darknet market has allowed the sale of poisons, murder, or CSAM content. It's rare to even see weapons and most listings turn out to be LE undercovers. darknetlive.com/post/here-ar…

Tor Browser's Javascript filter is broken again. Its latest version 10 is allowing JS to execute in some situations even if the security slider is set to "Safest". Disable Javascript in about:config until a fix is released. @torproject this should be a critical pre-release test.

"That is most definitely not me/us" - an NCIDE task force agent in a verified private message.
Is the FBI messaging darknet drug dealers on cryptomarkets, asking them to cooperate? It's possible but the message isn't PGP signed. Missed detail: the PGP key used by NCIDE task force is not the entire FBI's PGP key. If fake this troll has mastered LE-speak. "JCO-DarkHalt"

If a troll it's hard to figure out what they would actually gain here. Psyops to scare a vendor away from using a competing market? If a vendor follows the instructions and PGP encrypts to NCIDE's key, and emails the official NCIDE email address, then they really do get the info.

Not in their graphic: the cost to investigate, arrest, prosecute 179 people. $6.5 million seized, it's unlikely this operation broke even. This is not a war on drugs, this is the war on anonymity.

Good morning UTC. Some darknet anons choose to synchronize their sleep schedules to the world's default timezone for OPSEC reasons. Message timestamps have been cited in criminal complaints, but I'm not certain it's really worth it mate.

tl;dr: international law enforcement coordinated for nine months to seize less firearms than at a Trump rally, less money than HSBC launders in a day.
