Hansa Market has been around now for a few years and has since worked its way up to the top of most popular Darknet Markets for numerous reasons.

Hansa Market looks fantastic, has an impressive uptime, loads fast, and most important Hansa Market provides some of the finest protection and security to their user base. The Hansa Market admins have even gone as far as to claim their website is Exit Scam proof due to the way the darknet store is set up.

HANSA Market Review | Listings: 4.2
HANSA Market currently has a little more than 28,000 listings at the time of this review. While that might not seem like a lot in comparison to others Hansa’s number of listings has more than quadrupled since the previous year. Another important point is over 11,000 of those listings are for physical products while the bulk of many darknet markets listings consist of digital content. But it’s not the number of listings that makes this one of the better choices of Darknet Market’s, its the other incredible features that make the Hansa Market.
Hansa Market also has a list of items that they do not allow to be sold or purchased on their marketplace. This includes anything that would contribute to the intentional harm of children, animals and people. Any form of weapons including guns are also strictly prohibited. It’s nice to see a darknet market run by admins with a conscious for a change.
HANSA Market Review | Security: 5
When it comes to overall security Hansa Market blows the competition away. This is by far the most attractive feature of this impressive Darknet Market. Instilling trust in vendors and shoppers alike. The list of security features Hansa has put in place is not only impressive, it’s the foundation on what drives new users to their market in droves.
“AFTER RECENT EXIT SCAMS OF VARIOUS MARKETPLACES (E.G. EVOLUTION, BLACKBANK) WE WANTED TO CREATE A MARKET WHERE IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR EITHER ADMINS OR VENDORS TO RUN AWAY WITH YOUR FUNDS.”
The quote above can be found right in the about us section of Hansa Market. A message directly from the admins to let their users know trust and security are at the top of their agenda. You might be asking “How could a darknet market possibly be immune to exit scams?”.
Hansa Market further explains in their about section about their exit scam-proofing setup.
“Most markets operate the same: Blindly deposit money into your account, wait for confirmations and then make the purchase. Note that the Bitcoin price might have changed while you were waiting for your deposit to arrive and you have to deposit more Bitcoins and wait even longer. We approached this a little different. On HANSA you do not have to deposit Bitcoins before your purchase. Every order is simply a Bitcoin transaction in itself.
In the event of an absolute worst case scenario (hack, LE involvement) which makes it impossible for us to come back online, we will release the private key of our address that is being used for every vendor-(-buyer)-HANSA multi sig wallet.
In case nobody of our team is able to access the site for 30 days a dead man switch will auto sign all open transactions.” – HANSA Market
- No FE (finalize early)
- Multi-Sig Wallets
- Multi-Signature Escrow
- Advanced Dispute System
- Tiered Vendor Deposits
- Trusted Vendor Badges
HANSA Market admins take security to the next level. Hansa Market has even made it clear that they absolutely do not allow Finalizing Early and encourage users to report any vendors requesting an FE. FE has become a popular option on other markets and many vendors refuse to go any other route due to issues with darknet markets pulling major exit scams and vanishing with all the bitcoin stored in escrow. Though with the Multi-Sig Escrow system exit scams are not a concern for users of the HANSA Market. No more need to worry about vendors padding their trust with digital products and fake reviews only to disappear with a large bag of stolen bitcoins.
While this is by far the best security feature it is far from the only one. Here is a short list of the other various security features HANSA Market offers to protect their users.
HANSA Market Review | Features and Design: 5
Another perfect score for the HANSA Market lies within the overall design, functionality, and features of their website. HANSA Market has a professional design and is by far one of the easiest darknet markets to navigate, even for the most novice of users. This, along with their security are two major priorities the developers had when building the Hansa Market. The top bar of the site has some of the most important tabs including a direct link to their forum while the categories page is simplified and works like traditional darknet sites. Another key feature that stuck out was how impressive the search function works.
There a two snippets of information available about the vendors of HANSA Market. The Trusted badge and the experience level. The experience level ratings option are offered to both vendors and seller in order to build additional trust for each side. Here is how HANSA Market’s Level and Experience System works according to their support section.
Browsing the HANSA Market is incredibly easy, fast and visually striking. As soon as you select any category you will be greeted with a stunning layout consisting of a column of vendors along with all the vital information a savvy shopper would want. Trusted level, bulk prices, experience rating and more are available without the need to click directly on the listing itself.
“HANSA’s Level and Experience System
You get awarded experience points (EXP) for certain market events like finalised orders, feedback, forum upvotes and user referrals. The higher your EXP the higher your level. Vendors benefit from a higher level in the form of a higher reputation and lower market fees and buyers also gain reputation. In the future, we are planning on allowing vendors to set up listings that only buyers with a certain level can buy.” – Hansa Market Support Section
Some of the other reasons behind HANSA Market’s perfect score is their extremely in-depth support section feature professionally written tutorials explaining bitcoin, bitblenders, site features and more! Well done HANSA Market.
