For the first time on the darknet, the most active market does not accept Bitcoin. White House Market uses Monero, a cryptocurrency designed to safeguard the privacy of its previous owners, like cash.

Use Monero or go to jail.

Multiple sources claim that a staff member at DarkMarket also worked at Yellow Brick, which went offline the same week. Did YB exit or were they also arrested? Remember that LE does not announce all arrests.

White House Market is now the most active darknet market following DarkMarket's seizure. It has many security features that frustrate newcomers. When it comes to privacy, usually the easier a site/app is to use, the less protected you are. Don't buy drugs, don't commit crimes.

Hat tip to whichever of my fed followers designed DarkMarket's fly swatter takedown notice (championing their odd bee logo.) I lol'ed in spite of my typical nausea on site seizure days.

How many LE agencies does it take to seize a Tor hidden service? Eleven, apparently.

An IP leak potentially led German law enforcement to DarkMarket. Darknet admins that use the Eckmar marketplace script are often not experts at securing servers.
Yes. Here is zoomeye's search result. Shodan is constantly overwriting information, so it will be erased after a period of time.

Surprise, surprise: no female arrests announced. "The detained man, believed to be DarkMarket's operator, is a 34-year-old Australian national." #eyeroll

DarkMarket is the first market run by women. They accept Bitcoin and Monero, and run on the Eckmar marketplace script. I normally do not trust Eckmar markets, but this team is trusted by most major vendors. 1400 vendors, 220k users, according to their counts.

ALERT: DarkMarket seized by German authorities. It was the largest darknet drug marketplace for 3 months. Empire and Dream Market admins are still at large. Dream was online for seven years.

DarkMarket ran on "Eckmar marketplace", a readily-available cryptomarket PHP script infamous for insecurities and half-baked features. Eckmar claims to store all messages and shipping addresses encrypted. We'll see how that pans out in the coming wave of arrests.

LE allegation: "at least 320,000 transactions were carried out via (DarkMarket) marketplace, with more than 4,650 Bitcoin and 12,800 Monero (...) changing hands"

Law Enforcement knowing figures at that detail on the same day of the arrest indicates they may have analyzed the servers long before the arrest, possibly hacked the market in some way, or had an undercover staff member able to see counts in DarkMarket's support interface.

DarkMarket was seized today, briefly the darknet's largest. Did Yellow Brick really exit scam or were they arrested? Why are the Tor network's consensus servers under a coordinated attack at the same time?

If the ongoing attack on Tor is intentional, why force all v3 .onions on the "darknet" offline? It could be to convince admins to launch v2 .onions, which could be compromised in some way. Governments don't report bugs. #tinfoil

Ongoing Tor consensus issues caused all v3 .onions to be offline for ~3 of the past 12hrs. I believe it is an intentional attack on Tor. It began on Jan 6th. Dark Market remains offline for no technical reason. White House Market launched two temporary v2 .onions.
