WARNING: Two of my donors report that their exchanges blocked their accounts after they donated Bitcoin to me. I am a journalist! I do not commit crimes. Last year I voiced strong opposition to blockchain analysis. My donation address was flagged in return. This is pure evil.
Should cash be permanently marked if it has EVER passed through a criminal's hands? This is happening to thousands of cryptocurrency users. @Chainalysis KYT flags a Bitcoin deposit as suspicious, provides no evidence or appeal, then the exchange steals the funds.

Privacy is a human right, violated constantly by opaque companies like Chainalysis. Can an individual check a Bitcoin address' "cleanliness" according to their data? Nope, their blockchain surveillance is for governments and corporations only. Use privacy coins for fungibility.

Activists, researchers, journalists: The security practices that work for "darknet" users are critical to learn in these times of mass surveillance. Use TAILS and PGP to protect sources and yourself. Then, do work worthy of surveillance.

I was just given the 2nd Pfizer vaccine. Hopefully that means this lockdown will finally be over soon and I can see visitors again.

Darknet Avengers, a harm reduction forum which helps drug users stay alive, briefly showed a police takedown notice depending on which Tor circuit you viewed the page with. It is not clear what happened, no LE press releases, possibly a hack or angry staff member.

Onion[.]live briefly displayed a fake police takedown notice following an internal dispute between their team members. #darknetDrama

Dread is offline, is under a large DDoS attack according to HugBunter. Reddit's /r/DreadAlert is the normal place to watch for updates from their team, nothing there yet.

Just in case your donation to a journalist is not something you want publicly visible in a blockchain: we have removed Bitcoin as a donation option. Dark.fail is now Monero-only to protect our donors from blockchain misinterpretation/pseudo-analysis.

Wikileaks' last remaining .onion went offline on Dec 23rd 2020 at 05:09:57 UTC. For years it hosted a static HTML page saying that their chat is no longer available.

This is especially true for on-the-ground journalists covering protests: they are already a target for LE.
You have no right to know when your personal data is subpoenaed, shared. Activists: self host to survive.

Anyone who gives a damn about privacy should scrutinize "darknet" investigations. I believe the ethics-bending methods used by some LE are the tip of an iceberg that will soon threaten all online freedoms. Activists, journalists, researchers: learn OPSEC. Learn from the darknet.

All Tor v3 .onions were offline for four hours today due to consensus servers being overloaded again, presumably. @torproject still has no status page.
Tor is fantastic for censorship evasion when onion services are actually accessible.

Most blockchains are public. Confuse stalkers by trading off-chain. Find someone you trust & swap your wallet seed for its balance in another cryptocurrency. (be extremely careful with this - they can scam easily)
