Alphabay Market

Alphabay Market became a dark-web powerhouse after its launch in 2014. Following three years of success, AlphaBay went offline abruptly in July 2017, and the community suspected it as an "exit scam". Alexander Cazes (Alpha02), one of the marketplace's admins, was believed to be behind this disappearance. However, it soon surfaced on the internet that officials had seized Alphabay: making it part of history as one the largest marketplaces on record due to its operations over those initial few successful years.

After taking a brief hiatus, AlphaBay is ready to rise again. DeSnake has rebranded the marketplace with an updated design and the same administration. It's on track to become the largest darknet market ever seen.

Frequently Asked Questions - Alphabay Market

What is AlphaBay?

AlphaBay provides a secure, zero-tolerance market for buyers seeking any type of black market item. Through our Escrow system and strict policies on scamming, shoppers can shop confidently, knowing they'll receive exactly what they purchase and verified vendors sell all products.

Uncover the details and explore our history on Wikipedia and other news websites for more insight.​

Who runs AlphaBay?

The AlphaBay Market has recently returned to the online marketplace with renewed vigor, propelled by co-founder and security administrator DeSnake's return. Having founded AlphaBay in 2014, he is now focusing on making it "great again" for 2023.​

Is it making a comeback? Has its core admin remained unchanged?

AlphaBay is back with a bang with the same administration. Their cutting edge security and 24/7 professional staff promise users unparalleled safety. With experienced management, AlphaBay looks to provide an unmatched vision for the future of darknet markets.​

Why did AlphaBay Market return?

DeSnake states in the PGP signed message that:

AlphaBay's return brings far more than just monetary gain. This is a chance to make Alpha02 proud and create an enduring legacy that pays homage to the past darknet marketplaces.

Our ambitious goals for a decentralized market had to be put on hold due to a lack of following operational security protocols and unscrupulous tactics used by law enforcement. However, we remain undeterred in our determination to realize this project.

AlphaBay's return sparks an inquiry into the mysterious circumstances surrounding alpha02, who was arrested and convicted without a fair trial. Our investigations suggest his untimely death may not have been suicide as initially purported - raising disturbing questions about whether he suffered foul play similar to Epstein or McAfee. Those of us close to him recall a kind-hearted person who genuinely cared for our community but ultimately faced unforeseen injustices that were wholly undeserved.

Over a period of two decades, I had witnessed numerous arrests within the game world; however, none to this magnitude. The AlphaBay case was particularly shocking due to its fatal consequences. Still, it wasn't until witnessing the notorious presentation held by US agents at a infamous college/university that my indifference towards the whole situation truly became clear. To see them laughing and mocking their arrestee as if they were on stage at a comedy act? What took place there was beyond disrespectful as Law Enforcement officials had total disregard for human life. How are we meant to trust anyone with such negligence in upholding justice?

To make a lasting impact, I have taken it upon myself to honor the memory of Alpha02 and fulfill his vision for a Decentralized Market Network. By doing this, we can ensure that the legacy of AlphaBay will live on forever - offering hope for an improved marketplace experience across the DNM community.

All the AlphaBay users have faced difficult times with losses due to Law Enforcement seizures. With that in mind, I am proud to announce a robust system called 'AlphaGuard' which guarantees funds can be withdrawn without loss under any circumstances. Together, we are stronger and will continue moving forward through adversity.​

What advancements has AlphaBay made since 2017?

AlphaBay's Administration, Staff, and ScamWatch teams have come together to implement several crucial changes. Below, new policies serve as strong advancements for the community to keep the marketplace safe from malicious vendors/items. Together we can create a secure environment of trustworthiness and reward those who act in its defense.​

  • AlphaGuard was designed to provide an unparalleled level of security for users, ensuring their funds are protected and disputes settled in case all servers suffer a seizure. AlphaGuard cannot be detected by law enforcement or disrupted - even if taken down entirely, there are 'sleeping cells' which guarantee its ultimate goals will still be achieved.​
  • Our new code base provides the most secure environment to protect our marketplace. We have reinvented from the ground up, considering all of today's industry standard security practices to guarantee safety for everyone in the market. With this reimagining, you will find many visual similarities between old and new platforms; however, rest assured that each script is 100% unique - no scripts or logic has been reused from 2014-2017.​
  • Our powerful bulletproof servers are equipped with AlphaGuard's automated reconfiguration and deployment system. This ensures quick yet secure server access for manual administration approval within minutes. Additionally, our server locations feature robust defense forces such as armed guards to protect against threats; multiple security protocols further safeguard the integrity of the valuable data housed in each rack. Our advanced CCTV access allows alert notifications to keep our services safe and secure. Our hosting providers are industry-leading with impenetrable systems that do not respond to any requests from Law Enforcement - no matter the origin.​
  • AlphaBay is rapidly expanding, and with this growth comes an opportunity to introduce new Staff. However, there are associated risks that cannot be overlooked. So, we've implemented a granular system of monitoring staff access based on permission requests approved by higher-ranking colleagues whose actions are logged for security. It's part of our commitment to provide clients trustworthy service while remaining vigilant in risk management. Our team of administrators closely monitors logs regularly to ensure that the entire staff is following the highest standard and working with integrity for our organization.​
  • Our Automatic Dispute Resolver (ADR) system is the ideal solution for resolving disputes quickly and easily. Driven by our deep expertise, we have developed a highly effective dispute resolution model that offers buyers and sellers straightforward options, including extended escrow time, full refund or partial refund, and replacement of items - no third parties required. Choosing Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) as a conflict resolution strategy is an effective way to achieve mutually-beneficial outcomes both parties can agree on. ADR provides all the advantages of working with an impartial moderator, which means everyone saves time and resources. By utilizing the carefully designed system, you can easily attain clarity when approaching a vendor dispute. With these options, you can rest assured that a moderator will quickly investigate and resolve any reshipping/replacement issues. Avoid the hassle of unresolved disputes. Our team is available when you need it and can mediate a resolution within 24 hours.​
  • AlphaBay has recently transitioned exclusively to the Monero (XMR) cryptocurrency for various reasons. The main motivation is that it helps protect our users from legal entities who may try and track their activities through Bitcoin's transparent network; additionally by using XMR, potential customers can reap the benefits of greater obfuscation due to this coin's superior privacy features. We are also talking about the possible implementation of other anonymous currencies down the line. An extra layer of security for our customers is indispensable; thus, we implement an internal Monero mixer, ensuring that they remain irrevocably anonymous even if transactions are uncovered.​
  • We have used a PGP-signed message to explain the significance of focusing on I2P rather than Tor network. Evidently, Tor has not been making necessary changes that would protect hidden services from being exposed or attacked by LE - as seen in the takedown of AlphaBay. Thus, we must turn our focus towards utilizing I2P instead to avoid such issues and enhance security measures going forward.​

What is AlphaGuard?

With exhaustive testing spanning two years, AlphaGuard is a revolutionary system designed to keep user funds safe from server seizures. A year-long standalone trial proved its exceptional capability of protecting against data loss. So now, no matter what happens, you can trust your money to AlphaGuard. With its "hive-mind" intelligence, this program has the capability to detect if server resources are running low and then initiate multiple programs to acquire more servers. It can either use cryptocurrency wallets with preloaded funds to bypass the captcha or exploit remote systems in order to gain automatic access privileges - all while keeping data securely encrypted throughout.

If our systems detect any issues, they will lock down automatically. To ensure the system's security, administrators must manually deactivate lockdown mode within 72 hours, or else automated wallet recovery will be initiated, through which Internet users can access onion and/or i2p addresses for withdrawals from various sources.

Withdrawing funds from your wallet requires three pieces of identification: username, password, and recovery key. Without all three elements, there is no access to the currency stored in the wallet. But by entering these elements comes complete control over withdrawal destinations, be it an internal or public XMR address and you have total freedom when deciding where to send any remaining balance. Keep in mind that for added security purposes, only full transactions are allowed, so regardless of how much remains unspent, withdrawing money means a 100% transfer at once.

After a period of several weeks, data security will reach its final stage - self-destruct mode. Upon activation, all databases and files associated with the system are wiped clean, leaving no trace for customers, us, or even law enforcement to ever access again. This is an absolute safeguard in maintaining confidentiality and privacy that cannot be reversed once triggered.

Our customers' safety is paramount, and as such, we have spared no expense in building a secure defense system. Proactive monitoring 24/7 ensures that any threat to our infrastructure will be identified quickly and neutralized before it can cause damage.

NOTICE: If your password isn't working as expected, it may be that you changed the credentials before a backup was made or if our system is having difficulty connecting to recent copies. To prevent this from happening in the future, save all past passwords and ensure they are encrypted according to industry best practices. Rest assured that we utilize established encryption methods and do not develop any untested systems for security reasons.​

How is AlphaBay different from other DNM?

DeSnake states in the PGP signed message that:

AlphaBay offers an unrivaled experience in terms of safety and convenience, boasting one of the most experienced staff teams. With more than two decades worth of expertise in computer security, underground businesses, darknet market management, customer support, plus a track record for effectively evading Law Enforcement (LE) activities - you can be sure that AlphaBay is managed by responsible and seasoned professionals.

Our tech team has been hard at work building a secure, audited codebase from the ground up. We employ bulletproof servers and multiple disruptions safeguards to protect your data in case of hardware issues or raids/seizures. Our AlphaGuard system ensures that customers and vendors always have access to their funds (including escrow) over I2P/Tor and can restore core functionalities such as disputes with 100% automated efficiency.

Due to security concerns, the entire administration staff has been replaced with trusted individuals whom I have built relationships with and conducted successful business partnerships within prior years. These moderators serve as reliable figures for this organization. AlphaBay is expanding, and with that comes the need for more personnel. A granular system has been applied to ensure accuracy in ScamWatch actions and restrict access to unneeded functions or data. These new changes are based on past experience; allowing increased productivity while providing faster response times when handling support tickets and resolving disputes.

Our latest breakthrough in the field of decentralized ecommerce is our Automatic Dispute Resolver system. This cutting-edge technology has enabled us to handle most disputes without requiring third party intervention, allowing for a smoother and swifter resolution process. Through this automated offering, both parties can make or reject various propositions such as full refunds, partial refunds, and replacement products.

ADR is an invaluable tool, allowing the same dispute resolution process as a moderator without any intervention. Even if no agreement can be reached with your vendor, it clarifies where you stand or gives opportunities to explore solutions such as reshipping and replacing goods. The system's design encourages quick resolutions when necessary - all while providing visibility into what has already transpired. Are you having trouble resolving a dispute? No need to worry, as ADR is there for your convenience, and in the rare case where it doesn't suffice, an experienced moderator will be on hand within 24 hours.

AlphaBay stands out from the darknet with a spotless reputation, and for a good reason. We prioritize transparency, professional conduct, and fairness to all parties involved, earning us favor among buyers and vendors alike. But we don't just seek current success; AlphaBay seeks lasting change in the form of our Decentralized Market Network as an innovative system designed to deliver improved service on the darknet market scene as a whole. Join us today and be part of improving future prospects.​

What are the functions of the AlphaBay community?

DeSnake states in the PGP signed message that:

Our marketplace has undergone a revamp of its Trust Level calculation. The new system takes into consideration several attributes associated with buyers' and vendors' accounts without unnecessarily collecting extraneous data, providing an opportunity to balance both sides of the equation in terms of community functions. Vendors have implemented Trust Level requirements for buyers and sellers to enhance online security. A user's trustworthiness is determined by a network of fellow users who can vouch or disvouch each other based on their trust levels. Buyers are required to attain at least TL2, while Vendors must reach TL3 (with Vendor level 3) in order to list items in the autoshop. Your account's Trust Level is directly influenced by how faithfully you report. Too many false reports can result in moderators issuing a warning, so strive for accuracy when filing each submission.

Our website helps ensure users stick to the agreed rules through a system of Warning Points. Unfortunately, in the past, we have had some individuals repeatedly take actions that, despite not being explicitly forbidden, still posed an issue for our staff's productivity - something no business should have to endure. To put an end to this problem and protect future user experiences, any violations deemed severe enough will now result in Account Limitations or even Bans depending on their severity.

At our company, we take the utmost care to ensure privacy for all of our buyers. Therefore, buyer profiles are set to private by default, and information such as feedback ratings/comments will only be visible before an order is accepted. To improve customer experience, vendors should make their profile public so buyers may feel more informed in purchasing decisions.

ScamWatch is back, ensuring the safety of AlphaBay users and vendors. In addition to its established functions, such as guarding against scams and overseeing truthful listings & refund policies, ScamWatch has extended its reach with undisclosed methods providing further assurance that products are genuine, allowing for increased drug safety usage on AlphaBay while offering more "pure" options.

Referrals are back and better than ever. Take advantage of our incredible rate - up to 25% cash-back on profits, depending on your referred's transaction levels. If you have marketing skills or can spread the word, it's time to get paid for sending customers our way. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity with the industry's highest referral rewards available today.

Exciting new services and automotive avenues have emerged to create unprecedented business opportunities. These markets allow individuals the chance to provide programming, graphic design, remote administration or language translation services as well as access automotive parts, keys or exploits for their own projects.​

What is AlphaBay Forum?

AlphaBay Forum is a vibrant online community that helps individuals and businesses grow. Whether you're searching for new business opportunities or seeking an innovative way to make money, this platform offers insights from experienced professionals who are happy to share their knowledge.

DeSnake states in the PGP signed message that:

Our Forum is a hub of activity, providing vendors with an opportunity to engage customers while facilitating open discussion around topics like cyber-security, fraud prevention, and anonymity. Whatever your level of expertise – from beginner tutorials to advanced techniques - we have something for everyone that seeks the same freedom of speech enjoyed on this forum before.

Our exclusive, secure sub-forums are open to experienced technologists and power users. Discussions about the latest developments in hacking, data security, and carding now have a home for like minds seeking occasional support or looking to collaborate on ideas. Our members only forums promote verified content from elite individuals striving towards their own success within shared interests, without fear of exposure by outsiders. The much-anticipated relaunch of VXcode is set to bring together members who have endured past raids and kept the subculture alive. To commemorate this momentous occasion, we are releasing an updated source code of a famous banking trojan as well as the story of how the Law Enforcement tried to falsely accuse me of creating that malware.

The Forum is expanding with freshly established language-specific subcommunities, all abiding by website rules, including optional personal regulations imposed by devoted 'community managers'. From the launch of VXcode, there has been a far-reaching plan to make these communities self-sustaining and capable of recovering in case of any raids or seizures. Conviviality abounds, as larger groups can now establish their own dedicated communities hosted by community managers to maintain an active presence on this darknet Forum.​

What is the future vision of AlphaBay?

DeSnake states in the PGP signed message that:

Experienced in the darknet market scene, we are prepared to deliver a marketplace and forum that meet the needs of our users.

Our objectives include:

With our cutting-edge innovations, AlphaBay sets the 'industry standards' for a more sustainable model of future operations. Our extensive experience in operational security and counter-surveillance provides us with an edge that allows buyers, vendors, and darknet admins to remain safe from LE (law enforcement). The survival of most staff members after raids several years ago stands as testimony to the effectiveness of these tactics.

To ensure success, we need to significantly extend our presence in the market with a strategy that's at least three times longer than what AlphaBay experienced.

We are committed to nurturing the future of decentralized marketplaces. A portion of profits will go towards supporting and encouraging a new generation in this space. Our Forum provides more details on how we plan to do so - take a look:

With our vision to create a secure, autonomous, and decentralized platform, we are introducing AlphaBay - an anonymous marketplace that enables buyers and vendors alike the power of decentralization. Come join us in this new endeavor as we strive towards offering complete freedom of trade. By joining the network, alternative marketplaces can reduce their risk of legal action while still maintaining autonomy in key areas. This includes managing disputes, deciding which items to sell, and administering fees without sacrificing control over profits. Customers can now confidently shop in a variety of markets without ever having to worry about trusting any individual marketplace with their digital currency. Meanwhile, vendors have the luxury of selling on multiple marketplaces while enjoying full anonymity and security or even creating their own shops.​

Why does AlphaBay suggest using I2P?

Our commitment to I2P is unwavering, as we firmly believe it's tomorrow's technology. Therefore every user must have a strong understanding and proficiency with this system. Something Tor has been notably lacking in when it comes to needed improvements around hidden services. This isn't just my opinion, but many industry experts share these concerns. Despite knowing who is leveraging anonymity networks to commit cybercrimes, and how they are tracked down through deanonymization techniques, the Tor Project Foundation has done really nothing in response. It's clear that providing financial support will not be enough to incentivize change. Instead of relying on hope for an eventual shift away from this status quo, it's time we demand action now.

As we compare and look for alternatives to Tor, I2P has become a clear choice as it was designed from the ground up to be used as a darknet. This open-source network has been around for several years now, providing support for various applications like decentralized chat and anonymous torrenting. From its inception, I2P has seen many improvements in terms of security architecture with recent updates allowing higher security tunnels using the latest encryption algorithms. It is no surprise that I2P is gaining more popularity with users looking for greater privacy and anonymity online. While I2P is easy to install on most platforms, including Linux distributions and Windows (though we don't advise using it for DNM activity), its integration with the Tails system has been more challenging. With adequate funding and support from community however, this could soon be a reality.

With knowledge of I2P, users can experience uninterrupted access to AlphaBay. Until the majority migrate to this technology platform, Tor mirrors will remain a reliable alternative.​

Why has AlphaBay decided to be a Monero-only marketplace? What issues does it have with Bitcoin?

It is advisable to avoid using Bitcoin for transactions you wish to remain private.

Our marketplace is proud to offer Monero (XMR) as the leading privacy coin in terms of security and anonymity. Those seeking a higher level of protection should migrate from Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, taking advantage of the audited features that make Monero so attractive: its robust usability, impressive community support, strong security measures, and total anonymity.

Our customers' safety and security is our top priority. Therefore, we will not integrate any swaps from Monero to Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies due to the potential of law enforcement halting trades or freezing funds that could result in unfavorable outcomes for them. DNMs offering swap services present a serious risk as their amateur admins tend to overlook or be unaware of the potential consequences, such as data seizure by law enforcement which could lead to losses and reflect poorly on the marketplaces. Users should exercise caution when engaging with these platforms.

Law enforcement has the ability to track and target anyone who uses Dark Net Market (DNM) swappers. It's important to be aware of this risk before engaging in any illegal activities online. Trading in amateur marketplaces can have serious consequences, as attested to by the frequent legal action taken against exchanges. It is important for those in the crypto market not to taint every exchange; otherwise, individuals cannot reap their profits while hampering the accessibility of cryptocurrencies and their advantages.

In the near future, leveraging atomic swaps could enable rapid and safe transactions between Bitcoin and Monero. This would provide users with increased anonymity without compromising security - a feat yet to be achieved through decentralized exchanges due to the lack of privacy or complexity in setting up peer-to-peer connections.

AlphaBay boasts a secure purchasing experience with two options for customers. Escrow and Finalize Early, exclusively available to our most trustworthy vendors, provides buyers peace of mind when shopping in the marketplace. For an even more comprehensive layer of security, transfer only what you plan on using into your AlphaBay XMR wallet - resulting in a non-custodial environment that prioritizes buyer protection first. With wallet-less marketplaces gaining traction, users need to understand their individual tradeoff between convenience and security. Currently, coins are stowed in an address under the marketplace's control during transactions - preventing usurpation from external sources. Multisig monero will be introduced when it is more secure and widely available, according to our tests, it's not quite ready yet.

AlphaBay puts the safety of its customers first and foremost, running an internal mixer to ensure no Monero coins will be linked back to you. To take coin unlinking even further, our Forum offers up-to-date protocols for optimal security, so now you can trust us as your go-to resource.

Our innovative decentralized network is poised to revolutionize the darknet market industry, eliminating wallet trust issues and allowing admins greater freedom over business development and customer service. Our cutting-edge hardcoded protocols promise secure reliability at all times in order to provide optimal services for customers.​

Why should you choose AlphaBay over other marketplaces today?

DeSnake states in the PGP signed message that:

For the past 4 years, 'AlphaBay Organization' has successfully weathered significant legal challenges and remained true to their promise of anonymity. This serves as a signal for experienced vendors and newcomers alike that with diligence, professionalism, and an understanding of security protocols, one can remain independent while operating in darknet markets.

Buy from AlphaBay and join the revolution. Our escrow makes it possible for buyers, vendors, and other marketplaces to benefit from a decentralized network. Your purchases help fund this new infrastructure – giving you access to private, secure, and anonymous transactions that disrupt traditional models of buying & selling. Become part of something bigger, which will have core-level changes on the DNM scene for generations to come.

The community is on the cusp of an exciting opportunity - join us in shaping a new generation of marketplaces. Through our Forum, developers, security experts, and system administrators can leverage their skills to make meaningful contributions for which they will be rewarded. Together we can give what it takes to create something that carries potential benefits far into the future – let's all come together now and tap into this power. We appreciate your enthusiasm and seek more than just donations. We need you to help us move our project forward. Get involved with spreading the word, plus take part in exciting activities that will arise as our network evolves. Your dedication and participation now mean big changes down the road for everyone associated with this rewarding initiative.

How is AlphaBay different from other DNM?

DeSnake states in the PGP signed message that:

AlphaBay offers an unrivaled experience in terms of safety and convenience, boasting one of the most experienced staff teams. With more than two decades worth of expertise in computer security, underground businesses, darknet market management, customer support, plus a track record for effectively evading Law Enforcement (LE) activities - you can be sure that AlphaBay is managed by responsible and seasoned professionals.

Our tech team has been hard at work building a secure, audited codebase from the ground up. We employ bulletproof servers and multiple disruptions safeguards to protect your data in case of hardware issues or raids/seizures. Our AlphaGuard system ensures that customers and vendors always have access to their funds (including escrow) over I2P/Tor and can restore core functionalities such as disputes with 100% automated efficiency.

Due to security concerns, the entire administration staff has been replaced with trusted individuals whom I have built relationships with and conducted successful business partnerships within prior years. These moderators serve as reliable figures for this organization. AlphaBay is expanding, and with that comes the need for more personnel. A granular system has been applied to ensure accuracy in ScamWatch actions and restrict access to unneeded functions or data. These new changes are based on past experience; allowing increased productivity while providing faster response times when handling support tickets and resolving disputes.

Our latest breakthrough in the field of decentralized ecommerce is our Automatic Dispute Resolver system. This cutting-edge technology has enabled us to handle most disputes without requiring third party intervention, allowing for a smoother and swifter resolution process. Through this automated offering, both parties can make or reject various propositions such as full refunds, partial refunds, and replacement products.

ADR is an invaluable tool, allowing the same dispute resolution process as a moderator without any intervention. Even if no agreement can be reached with your vendor, it clarifies where you stand or gives opportunities to explore solutions such as reshipping and replacing goods. The system's design encourages quick resolutions when necessary - all while providing visibility into what has already transpired. Are you having trouble resolving a dispute? No need to worry, as ADR is there for your convenience, and in the rare case where it doesn't suffice, an experienced moderator will be on hand within 24 hours.

AlphaBay stands out from the darknet with a spotless reputation, and for a good reason. We prioritize transparency, professional conduct, and fairness to all parties involved, earning us favor among buyers and vendors alike. But we don't just seek current success; AlphaBay seeks lasting change in the form of our Decentralized Market Network as an innovative system designed to deliver improved service on the darknet market scene as a whole. Join us today and be part of improving future prospects.​

What are the functions of the AlphaBay community?

DeSnake states in the PGP signed message that:

Our marketplace has undergone a revamp of its Trust Level calculation. The new system takes into consideration several attributes associated with buyers' and vendors' accounts without unnecessarily collecting extraneous data, providing an opportunity to balance both sides of the equation in terms of community functions. Vendors have implemented Trust Level requirements for buyers and sellers to enhance online security. A user's trustworthiness is determined by a network of fellow users who can vouch or disvouch each other based on their trust levels. Buyers are required to attain at least TL2, while Vendors must reach TL3 (with Vendor level 3) in order to list items in the autoshop. Your account's Trust Level is directly influenced by how faithfully you report. Too many false reports can result in moderators issuing a warning, so strive for accuracy when filing each submission.

Our website helps ensure users stick to the agreed rules through a system of Warning Points. Unfortunately, in the past, we have had some individuals repeatedly take actions that, despite not being explicitly forbidden, still posed an issue for our staff's productivity - something no business should have to endure. To put an end to this problem and protect future user experiences, any violations deemed severe enough will now result in Account Limitations or even Bans depending on their severity.

At our company, we take the utmost care to ensure privacy for all of our buyers. Therefore, buyer profiles are set to private by default, and information such as feedback ratings/comments will only be visible before an order is accepted. To improve customer experience, vendors should make their profile public so buyers may feel more informed in purchasing decisions.

ScamWatch is back, ensuring the safety of AlphaBay users and vendors. In addition to its established functions, such as guarding against scams and overseeing truthful listings & refund policies, ScamWatch has extended its reach with undisclosed methods providing further assurance that products are genuine, allowing for increased drug safety usage on AlphaBay while offering more "pure" options.

Referrals are back and better than ever. Take advantage of our incredible rate - up to 25% cash-back on profits, depending on your referred's transaction levels. If you have marketing skills or can spread the word, it's time to get paid for sending customers our way. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity with the industry's highest referral rewards available today.

Exciting new services and automotive avenues have emerged to create unprecedented business opportunities. These markets allow individuals the chance to provide programming, graphic design, remote administration or language translation services as well as access automotive parts, keys or exploits for their own projects.​

What is AlphaBay Forum?

AlphaBay Forum is a vibrant online community that helps individuals and businesses grow. Whether you're searching for new business opportunities or seeking an innovative way to make money, this platform offers insights from experienced professionals who are happy to share their knowledge.

DeSnake states in the PGP signed message that:

Our Forum is a hub of activity, providing vendors with an opportunity to engage customers while facilitating open discussion around topics like cyber-security, fraud prevention, and anonymity. Whatever your level of expertise – from beginner tutorials to advanced techniques - we have something for everyone that seeks the same freedom of speech enjoyed on this forum before.

Our exclusive, secure sub-forums are open to experienced technologists and power users. Discussions about the latest developments in hacking, data security, and carding now have a home for like minds seeking occasional support or looking to collaborate on ideas. Our members only forums promote verified content from elite individuals striving towards their own success within shared interests, without fear of exposure by outsiders. The much-anticipated relaunch of VXcode is set to bring together members who have endured past raids and kept the subculture alive. To commemorate this momentous occasion, we are releasing an updated source code of a famous banking trojan as well as the story of how the Law Enforcement tried to falsely accuse me of creating that malware.

The Forum is expanding with freshly established language-specific subcommunities, all abiding by website rules, including optional personal regulations imposed by devoted 'community managers'. From the launch of VXcode, there has been a far-reaching plan to make these communities self-sustaining and capable of recovering in case of any raids or seizures. Conviviality abounds, as larger groups can now establish their own dedicated communities hosted by community managers to maintain an active presence on this darknet Forum.​

What is the future vision of AlphaBay?

DeSnake states in the PGP signed message that:

Experienced in the darknet market scene, we are prepared to deliver a marketplace and forum that meet the needs of our users.

Our objectives include:

With our cutting-edge innovations, AlphaBay sets the 'industry standards' for a more sustainable model of future operations. Our extensive experience in operational security and counter-surveillance provides us with an edge that allows buyers, vendors, and darknet admins to remain safe from LE (law enforcement). The survival of most staff members after raids several years ago stands as testimony to the effectiveness of these tactics.

To ensure success, we need to significantly extend our presence in the market with a strategy that's at least three times longer than what AlphaBay experienced.

We are committed to nurturing the future of decentralized marketplaces. A portion of profits will go towards supporting and encouraging a new generation in this space. Our Forum provides more details on how we plan to do so - take a look:

With our vision to create a secure, autonomous, and decentralized platform, we are introducing AlphaBay - an anonymous marketplace that enables buyers and vendors alike the power of decentralization. Come join us in this new endeavor as we strive towards offering complete freedom of trade. By joining the network, alternative marketplaces can reduce their risk of legal action while still maintaining autonomy in key areas. This includes managing disputes, deciding which items to sell, and administering fees without sacrificing control over profits. Customers can now confidently shop in a variety of markets without ever having to worry about trusting any individual marketplace with their digital currency. Meanwhile, vendors have the luxury of selling on multiple marketplaces while enjoying full anonymity and security or even creating their own shops.​

Why does AlphaBay suggest using I2P?

Our commitment to I2P is unwavering, as we firmly believe it's tomorrow's technology. Therefore every user must have a strong understanding and proficiency with this system. Something Tor has been notably lacking in when it comes to needed improvements around hidden services. This isn't just my opinion, but many industry experts share these concerns. Despite knowing who is leveraging anonymity networks to commit cybercrimes, and how they are tracked down through deanonymization techniques, the Tor Project Foundation has done really nothing in response. It's clear that providing financial support will not be enough to incentivize change. Instead of relying on hope for an eventual shift away from this status quo, it's time we demand action now.

As we compare and look for alternatives to Tor, I2P has become a clear choice as it was designed from the ground up to be used as a darknet. This open-source network has been around for several years now, providing support for various applications like decentralized chat and anonymous torrenting. From its inception, I2P has seen many improvements in terms of security architecture with recent updates allowing higher security tunnels using the latest encryption algorithms. It is no surprise that I2P is gaining more popularity with users looking for greater privacy and anonymity online. While I2P is easy to install on most platforms, including Linux distributions and Windows (though we don't advise using it for DNM activity), its integration with the Tails system has been more challenging. With adequate funding and support from community however, this could soon be a reality.

With knowledge of I2P, users can experience uninterrupted access to AlphaBay. Until the majority migrate to this technology platform, Tor mirrors will remain a reliable alternative.​

Why has AlphaBay decided to be a Monero-only marketplace? What issues does it have with Bitcoin?

It is advisable to avoid using Bitcoin for transactions you wish to remain private.

Our marketplace is proud to offer Monero (XMR) as the leading privacy coin in terms of security and anonymity. Those seeking a higher level of protection should migrate from Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, taking advantage of the audited features that make Monero so attractive: its robust usability, impressive community support, strong security measures, and total anonymity.

Our customers' safety and security is our top priority. Therefore, we will not integrate any swaps from Monero to Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies due to the potential of law enforcement halting trades or freezing funds that could result in unfavorable outcomes for them. DNMs offering swap services present a serious risk as their amateur admins tend to overlook or be unaware of the potential consequences, such as data seizure by law enforcement which could lead to losses and reflect poorly on the marketplaces. Users should exercise caution when engaging with these platforms.

Law enforcement has the ability to track and target anyone who uses Dark Net Market (DNM) swappers. It's important to be aware of this risk before engaging in any illegal activities online. Trading in amateur marketplaces can have serious consequences, as attested to by the frequent legal action taken against exchanges. It is important for those in the crypto market not to taint every exchange; otherwise, individuals cannot reap their profits while hampering the accessibility of cryptocurrencies and their advantages.

In the near future, leveraging atomic swaps could enable rapid and safe transactions between Bitcoin and Monero. This would provide users with increased anonymity without compromising security - a feat yet to be achieved through decentralized exchanges due to the lack of privacy or complexity in setting up peer-to-peer connections.

AlphaBay boasts a secure purchasing experience with two options for customers. Escrow and Finalize Early, exclusively available to our most trustworthy vendors, provides buyers peace of mind when shopping in the marketplace. For an even more comprehensive layer of security, transfer only what you plan on using into your AlphaBay XMR wallet - resulting in a non-custodial environment that prioritizes buyer protection first. With wallet-less marketplaces gaining traction, users need to understand their individual tradeoff between convenience and security. Currently, coins are stowed in an address under the marketplace's control during transactions - preventing usurpation from external sources. Multisig monero will be introduced when it is more secure and widely available, according to our tests, it's not quite ready yet.

AlphaBay puts the safety of its customers first and foremost, running an internal mixer to ensure no Monero coins will be linked back to you. To take coin unlinking even further, our Forum offers up-to-date protocols for optimal security, so now you can trust us as your go-to resource.

Our innovative decentralized network is poised to revolutionize the darknet market industry, eliminating wallet trust issues and allowing admins greater freedom over business development and customer service. Our cutting-edge hardcoded protocols promise secure reliability at all times in order to provide optimal services for customers.​
