Empire Market | Darknet Market Report
Empire Market Summary
Empire Market is a newer darknet market that first opened in early 2018. Out of all the newer darknet markets, Empire Market has grown very quickly during the first few months after it’s official launch. One feature that stands out is Empire Market’s entire user interface was specifically modeled after AlphaBay Market’s design.
Beyond the great design of the market, Empire Market also offers several important security features to better protect both its buyers and vendors. They also offer support for Bitcoin, Monero, and Litecoin.

Empire Market Daily Lottery
Every day at 20:00 UTC (8PM) Empire Market starts their new drawing. Every ticket placed before enters the lottery. Every ticket that is bought during or after the drawing will go into next day’s drawing. Empire Market waits for 6 newly generated blocks in the Bitcoin blockchain. Each block results in a hash number which is used to calculate a number between 1 and 49 using this formula:
number = 1 + (int(blockhash, 16) % 49)
This happens until 6 different numbers have been found. Duplicates may occur, which are ignored. The drawing can be watched live at Empire Market’s drawing page (available during the drawing) and you can mouse-over the numbers to check the blockhash, if you want to verify the resulting number. This process is probably fair because nobody knows the hashes of blocks that are not yet mined.
The more numbers you picked correctly, the more money you win.
The pots and payouts
The values of all tickets that entered the lottery will be added together. They pay out 75% of that entire pool plus unclaimed jackpots of previous drawings (more info below) plus that flat amount of Class V.
Class I: 6 correct numbers: 15%
Class II: 5 correct numbers: 10%
Class III: 4 correct numbers: 30%
Class IV: 3 correct numbers: 20%
Class V: 2 correct numbers: Ticket price x2 (flat amount)
Winnings will be transferred to the winner’s balance immediately after the 6 winning numbers have been found.
If there is no winner for a class, the pot will be added into next day’s pot.
If 2 or more people have the same amount of correct numbers, the pot will be split among all winners.
If – for example – there is no winner for class II but one winner for class I (all 6 numbers correct), the winner of class I also gets the pot of class II (and III and IV if there is also no winner).
There is no jackpot for class V because the user always win a flat amount (ticket price x2)
