Full Market Review
Alphabay is currently one of the best markets. It offers both multisig and normal escrow. The market was founded by alpha02, a ‘reputable’ member on various carding forums and an experienced carder and drug dealer. It offers the greatest variety of listings and the fastest load times. It is the only market which offers an API. The interface is appealing, easy to use and highly intuitive – even a newbie could easily navigate this site. The market accepts both BTC and XMR (Monero) deposits. Alphabay offers by far the most variety and quantity in terms of products and services for sale. At the time we reviewed the market (December 2016), there were 171,948 listings for drugs, 31889 for fraud related goods and services, 11660 guides and tutorials, 6000+ counterfeit items, 2577 weapons, 3000 ‘carded items’, 6000+ listings for services, 2406 listings for malware, and quite a bit more. You can find pretty much anything here.
