Darknet trust is a Tor site operating as a dark web search engine. The service was created in 2019 and provides users with in-depth information about darknet markets.
The new search engine is similar to Grams which shut down operations in December 2017 after more than three years in operation.
How Does Darknet Trust Operate?
Through Darknet trust, users can check site reviews and ratings, which in turn help to increase trust and reduce scams by a great deal. The site currently has information of over 15,000 profiles from 15 markets both active and dead.
The markets include Evolution, Dream, Empire, Nightmare, Berlusconi, Tochka, Cryptonia, Apollon, Grey Market, Agora, Cannazon, Dark Market, Avaris, Dream Alt, Cannahome.
If anyone happens to have information about any well-known market, they are welcome to share it with Darknet Trust so that the data can be available to everyone who wishes to read.
Darknet trust strives to keep information updated and fresh. It is, therefore, possible to keep your rating on the site. One can also recover them if the market is still active. But once gone, it will not be possible to do so.
The current ratings are available here http://wk5hjnojqkavnxoo.onion/?a=market-status.
In the event one has a profile, and it is not present, they can ask the admins to include it.
How to Search on DarkNet Trust
To search on darknet trust, one can use the product name, username or the PGP key.
In the event a market is down for one reason or the other, a user can search for vendors on darknet trust. This, in turn, reduces the possibility of getting scammed since there are a lot of parties out there who take advantage of such occurrences to spread false information.
Just make sure you verify the pgp key matches with the one you know. This is an important step to avoid getting scammed.
Any person intending to use the service can do so by simply creating an account and setting up a PGP key. Account registration only requires one to have a username and password. For the PGP, it helps verify the users by looking up their PGP key and profile information.
