For the Noobs :)

If you are going on the dark web please have the most security in mind.Remember don't fuck up take your security seriously, Tor can be circumvented very easily by three letter agencies.
How to use Veracrypt Volumes
Please never directly connect to Tor use Tor bridges instead, this will make it extremely hard for people to know if you are in fact using Tor.
Just avoid javascript
Please just because you use Bitcoin it's NOT anonymous
(Instead try using Monero)

Reçu une tentative de chantage avec mon email/vieux mdp

Je voulais juste partager vite fait une histoire de cybersécurité qui m'a bien fait stresser pendant 5 minutes...
J'ai reçu ceci pendant la nuit:
sujet: vieux mot de passe [ça fait flipper quand même au départ]
I know ( Password)is one of your password on day of hack..
Lets get directly to the point.
Not one person has paid me to check about you.
You do not know me and you're probably thinking why you are getting this email?
in fact, i actually placed a malware on the adult vids (adult porn) website and you know what, you visited this site to experience fun (you know what i mean).
When you were viewing videos, your browser started out operating as a RDP having a key logger which provided me with accessibility to your display and web cam.
immediately after that, my malware obtained every one of your contacts from your Messenger, FB, as well as email account.
after that i created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were viewing (you have a nice taste omg), and 2nd part displays the recording of your cam, and its you.
Best solution would be to pay me $1xxx.
We are going to refer to it as a donation. in this situation, i most certainly will without delay remove your video.
My -BTC -address: xxxxx
[case SeNSiTiVe, copy & paste it]
You could go on your life like this never happened and you will not ever hear back again from me.
You'll make the payment via Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search 'how to buy bitcoin' in Google).
if you are planning on going to the law, surely, this e-mail can not be traced back to me, because it's hacked too.
I have taken care of my actions. i am not looking to ask you for a lot, i simply want to be paid.
if i do not receive the bitcoin;, i definitely will send out your video recording to all of your contacts including friends and family, co-workers, and so on.
Nevertheless, if i do get paid, i will destroy the recording immediately.
If you need proof, reply with Yeah then i will send out your video recording to your 8 friends.
it's a nonnegotiable offer and thus please don't waste mine time & yours by replying to this message.
Le temps de ressortir un PC non vérolé et de googler "malware blackmail threat", le premier résultat google est:
C'est donc une tentative très commune, et pas personnalisée. Ouf !
Ceci étant:
1/ A qui envoyer une copie du message pour signalement ? 2/ Je vais en profiter pour dé-véroler mes machines (windows 10). Quel meilleur site/app pour ce faire ?
3/ on ne le rappellera jamais assez les gens: mdp aléatoire unique pour chaque site important + machin truc SMS de signalement de nouvelle connexion systématique (je sais plus le nom)

Questions Answers
Around here nobody talks about the argument that increased regulation of the internet would help stop child predators. Is that true, and if so where do you fall on the Net Neutrality vs law enforcement spectrum? No I don't think that's true at all. Child predators have been around much longer than the internet, and I would argue child abuse was more prevalent 50+ years ago when children were seen and not heard and it wasn't talked about. The dark web hasn't created more predators, it has just given them a new place to gather and hang out.
The one thing I found really interesting when I was lurking the forums of the child predators was their frustration about how children are now taught from a very young age that certain touching and acts are wrong and that they shouldn't keep certain secrets. It came up over and over again that they could not abuse certain children because they knew those children had someone they would tell. It was pretty clear that education was a child's best defence against getting abused.
the below is a reply to the above
That's so interesting, thanks for the AMA! Can you remember any other thing that a child could do in order to protect himself from being abused? What other characteristics do the abusers hate in potential victims? That seems to be the main one. Kids who speak up and who have close relationships with one or more people they are likely to confide in
What do folks talk about in the child predator forums? Do they like give each other advice on how to improve their craft? Yes, quite literally. The give each other tips on how not to get caught, how to edit out incriminating details in videos, how to drug children, techniques for convincing kids not to tell etc
the below is a reply to the above
Given your insight into how predators operate, do you have any advice for parents on protecting their kids? I'll cut'n'paste a response i gave to someone else about this, because it was something that really stuck out to me:

Has the exponential increase in Bitcoin value affected darknet dealers in any profound way? I can imagine that some drug dealers were sitting on quite a large sum of Bitcoin when the value shot up. Crypto purists hate to admit it, but bitcoin would not be where it is today without Silk Road. It was sitting at less than a dollar when Silk Road began and the markets showed a robust use case for cryptocurrency and as the markets grew, so did the demand for bitcoin. It also provided real-life use data for those who were not interested in drugs but who weren't sure if it had practical application. When SR went down, Bitcoin was at about $650 and it continued to grow as adoption became more mainstream. There are many many stories of drug dealers (and at least one faux-hitman!) who gained most of their wealth not by selling the drugs, but by the growth in value of their bitcoin holdings
Since you have a lot of experience with them online. Do you think pedophiles(not child abusers) should be treated as criminals, or as people suffering from a mental illness? Contact offenders should be treated as criminals, because they are criminals. They have abused or hurt someone. Same with those who support the creation and dissemination of child abuse materials.
Pedophiles who do not act on their urges should be given as much help as humanly possible.
Are there any mysterious or suspicious pages or communities that you haven’t been able to access? Anything that seems especially weird? there are a lot of Russian communities that I can't access, mostly because I don't speak Russian. Some of the more technical hacking communities have entry barriers that I'm not technical enough to score an invite to
How much these bad people really exist out there? Hundreds? Thousands? More? It depends what you mean by bad. If you mean people who use the dark web to buy drugs (who I do not consider bad) then there are many many thousands. There are also thousands of people who deal in stolen information to make money.
Unfortunately there are also thousands of child predators and the dark web has provided a "safe space" for them to come together to share materials and "tips". I hope this is where most of the resources of law enforcement are concentrated
Ehy mine is a rare question: what do you know about art on dark web? I'm talking about the black market made of stolen important pieces from museums, art used as value to money laundry and other criminal affairs I'm an artist and what I know is people don't think too much about the dark side of art and probably they need to open their eyes about I really haven't come across much in the way of that. Some of the markets have an "art" section, but that is mostly blotter art
How accurate are the legends? Any legends in particular? For a lowdown copied from a post I made in another forum:
1Red Rooms  The one that is most persistent is the myth of the "Red Room" - live streaming of torture/rape that ends in the murder of the victim and which people can pay to watch, or even bid to type in commands for the torturer to carry out (highest bid wins!). The most famous was the “ISIS Red Room” pictured above, where people could provide instructions to torture captured terrorists - you can read what happened here.
People have this idea of Hostel with webcams exist all over the dark web, but you just need an invite to get into them. It's ridiculous. They don't exist. They certainly wouldn't exist on Tor. But people are desperate to believe and they always come back with "You can't prove they don't exist, people are crazy, therefore they must exist." Picture my eyes rolling here.
2.Hitman sites
I don't think many people are taken in by the hitmen sites anymore, though the press loves playing up the fact that there are sites offering up hitman services. But every single one of them has turned out to be a scam, especially Besa Mafia, the one that did the most marketing. Again, you can read about it at the same link as above.
3.Exotic animals  People are always asking where they can find markets for exotic animals. Obviously the illegal trade in exotic animals exists, and some communications and transactions may well take place over Tor, but there are no markets like the drug markets where you can go and look at a picture and then put a tiger or ocelot or something into your basket and buy it with bitcoin.
1.People buy and sell drugs.
The drug markets are more busy than ever. You have probably heard of Silk Road, the most famous online drug market that got busted a few years ago and the owner sent to prison for two consecutive life terms? A lot of people thought that was the end of drugs being sold on the dark web. In fact, dark web sales of drugs have tripled since the shutdown of Silk Road.
The reason people buy drugs this way is that for many they offer a safer alternative for people who are going to do drugs anyway. There is no possibility of any violence. The vast majority of the time a buyer knows exactly what they are getting, because of the feedback and rating system. That's not the case in a nightclub, or even friends-of-friends, where you just blindly accept that the pill, powder or tab is what the seller says it is.
2.People buy and sell other illegal things
Mostly they buy and sell stolen credit cards and financial information, fake IDs (though lots of these are scams), personal information, “dumps” of hacked data and fraud-related items. For a long time, a seller was making a fortune selling fake discount coupons that really worked.
3.People access and create childporn  Unlike the other markets, the CP market is generally not for money, but rather they are groups who swap vile images and videos for free. The worst of the worst is called “hurtcore’. Thankfully, most of the people behind the worst sites have been arrested and put in jail.
4.People talk about stuff
There are plenty of sites, forums and chatrooms where people talk about all sorts of things - conspiracies, aliens, weird stuff. They take advantage of the anonymity.
5.People anonymously release information
Whistleblowers use the dark web to release information and make sure their identities won't be compromised. You will find Wikileaks, for example, on the dark web.
6.People surf the web anonymously
The number 1 thing people use the dark web for is just to surf the web completely anonymously. Not everybody wants to be tracked by advertisers.
I have a question: what are the odds of the casual Darkweb drug buyer - not buying mega loads all the time - the occasional purchase - what are the risks of being busted? Kinda figuring pretty low. But you’re the expert. What do you think? Obviously there is always a risk, but the risk is very low. It is rare for personal amounts to be seized. Even if a package is seized, there's usually no resources to follow it up. Many people report simply receiving a letter from Customs saying they have seized what they believe is contraband and the person has a choice of going to claim it or it will be destroyed. Even if LE does knock on the door there is plausible deniability: "I don't know who sent that stuff to me".
So yeah, rare, but it does happen. You might be the unlucky one
How do you find things on the dark web without search engines? There are a lot of entry sites, set up with links to the most popular places. You can generally get a link to one of them by browsing places like reddit. From there it is a matter of checking out different places, people will put links in forums etc.
I also use a Pastebin where people paste sites they have made/found, and a Fresh Onion site, which crawls all the newly-populated .onion addresses
Hi. there!! Thank you for answering questions. Mine is very simple. How do sellers get the drugs to people? Regular mail? That's always puzzled me bc I'd assume USPS, UPS, fedEx or any other mail carrier would catch at least some goods. If people are ordering drugs, particularly in powder form, for personal use, they can be flattened, sealed in MBB (moisture barrier baggies) and sent in a regular business envelope, indistinguishable from billions of other envelopes going through the postal system every day. The chances of a particular package being intercepted is very low.
Some people take the extra precaution of having the person taking delivery of the drugs different to the person/household that is ordering them.
How did you move from being a corporate lawyer to researching and writing about dark web? I was in London, working for one of the most conservative law firms in the world when the Global Financial Crisis hit. I liked the job but it struck me when people were losing their livelihoods that I was working for the bad guys. I'd always wanted to be a writer so when I came back to Australia I quit law and enrolled in a writing course planning to be a novelist, but I discovered I was better at journalism. I first wrote for newspapers here about Silk Road and it grew from there
I've always wanted to check out the dark web, what is a normal day for you look like on there? Can you give me any tips on how to safely surf the dark web? A normal day looks like me sitting at my desk writing things on my computer. When I'm researching a book or a case I venture away from my computer to trials and to interview people (at least I did pre-COVID)
There is nothing inherently unsafe in surfing the dark web. All the usual precautions you take surfing the clearweb apply. Don't visit any child exploitation sites - it will be pretty obvious that's what they are by the names/descriptions before you log in.
It is only when you want to do more than surfing - e.g. buying drugs etc - that you need to do a LOT of homework or you will absolutely get scammed
Is there anything good about the dark web? It depends what you are into. A lot of academic research has concluded that the darknet markets provide a safer way for people to buy and use drugs, due to the ratings of vendors, services that independently test and report back on batches of drugs, doctor on staff ready to answer questions, no violence in transactions etc.
News sites provide a dark web option so that whistleblowers can safety provide information and upload documents that get stripped of any identifying metadata before being available.
It bypasses firewalls and allows for secure communications under hostile regimes
the below is a reply to the above
How does this make you feel about the idea of the decriminalization of drugs? I've always been for full legalization of drugs, and studying the darknet markets just proved I was right.
I was invited to an experts roundtable in Portugal about drugs and cybercrime a few years ago and the Portugal model of decriminalisation has been a great success

Hey, you are still answering. Been reading this thread for 1-2 hours now. Thank you so much for all the good work and info! Always been intrigued by this topic, downloaded tor once to explore a bit but couldn’t and deleted it right away, to be on the safer side. Great insights. Thanks! I've been writing it for about 14 hours. Going a bit loopy
How was working on Casefile? What's the production process like? Which episodes did u do?? I have listened to... all of them.... I absolutely LOVE working for Casefile. I am a freelancer, so I source and write my own cases and then sell the scripts to Casefile. I've done at least a dozen, but some of my most popular are Amy Allwine, Mark & John, Ella Tundra, Leigh Leigh, Rebecca Schaeffer...
As for the production process, once I have sold the script to them, a staff member edits them and then they are passed on to Casey to narrate. After that, they go to Mike for sound editing, music etc. They are the best team ever
the below is a reply to the above
Oh, Leigh Leigh was so well written!! How do you choose which stories to write? Do you just pick true crime you're interested in? Thank you! I have a huge list of potential episodes. Any time I come across an interesting crime on reddit, or in the news or wherever I make a note of it. Then I just pick one when it comes time to write a new script.
Sometimes I've been personally involved (e.g. Amy Allwine), gone to trials etc. Those are always the best ones
Hi Eiley, your twitter just reminded me of this AMA :) What are your thoughts on bitcoin? And would you prefer to be paid in crypto or fiat? OOOOH, I know that name! Love & Light to you!
I like Bitcoin and I wish I had a whole lot of it and like many many people, I wish I had kept the first crypto I bought at something like $4 a coin :D I do not have a whole lot of it but I do have a little bit. I like the philosophy behind it and in theory it should change the world. However the reality is that the vast majority of it is concentrated in a very few hands which allows for market manipulation and stops it being useful as a post-fiat currency.
As long as I'm getting paid, I'm pretty happy!
the below is a reply to the question
I too remember your name Pluto! Such a decent human ❤ he is!! True OG right there <3
Is the dark web subject to more racism than its counterpart, the world wide web? There are some white power sites and that sort of thing and the chans are even more uncensored than the clearweb ones (4chan, 8chan) but to be honest they are the same cesspools in different spots. Drug forums don't seem to be very racist. I've seen worse on Twitter
Have you seen any consequential political or social organizing being carried out on the dark web? Not directly, but the dark web helped facilitate the Arab Spring uprising in 2010 by allowing activists to remain anonymous and to access blocked websites and social media. Wikileaks, obviously. Some white supremacy organizations seem to use it to coordinate attacks, but they are not places I'm keen to hang out in.
What’s the most expensive thing for sale you’ve seen on the dark web? What was surprisingly inexpensive? I can't remember specific listings, but there were sometimes sales of things like coke by the kilo, so that sort of thing I guess.
LSD could easily be found for $1/tab and one huge dealer gave it away for free if it was for personal use
the below has been split into separate questions
1. I’m going to ask a couple in hopes that one will catch your interest! I know you’re anonymous on the dark web, but even so, have you ever felt worried about your safety? I actually made the decision to be upfront and honest about who I am on the dark web, so I use the name OzFreelancer (which is easily traceable to my real name) on all the dark web sites where i went looking for interviews. The people there had the option of talking to me or not, so they had no reason to want to harm me.
2. I’ve found your comments about your relationship with Yura fascinating. Did y’all develop a friendship? Did you build any other relationships that stand out in your mind? Since you were straightforward about being on the dark web for stories, did people seem reluctant to communicate, or were they excited for the opportunity to divulge a secret? We do have a friendship of sorts, it is really quite weird. I do hope to met him one day. I met all of the senior staff of Silk Road other than the Dread Pirate Roberts himself and keep in touch with some. Some people wanted nothing to do with me of course, but many more were happy to talk to me. i think sometimes it was a relief to them to be able to talk to one person who they knew was who they said they were.
3. On violent forums, did users ever express remorse, guilt, shame, or anything indicative of some recognition that what they were viewing/seeking was awful? Do you see doxxing teams on the dark web working together to uncover info, or is the info already there through previous hacks/breaches, and someone just accesses and releases it? Sorry if any of those don’t make sense! I’m not familiar with the dark web lingo but am so intrigued by your work. Not really. I think if they were contributing to the forums, they were comfortable with who they were and what they were doing. Many of the "regular" pedophiles expressed revulsion about Lux and hurtcore sites though
these have probably been asked before but has there ever been a time where you where genuinely been scared for your life and whats the most messed up thing you've witnessed did you have any help? Yeah both things have been answered in this thread, so I'll cut'n'paste
The only time I've felt even slightly in danger despite all this nosing around in there was when I helped uncover a hitman scam. The owner of Besa Mafia, the most profitable murder-for-hire site in history, came after me when I started writing about him. He made loads of threats ("you don't know who I am, but I know who you are and where you live") but that wasnt scary, as I had access to the backdoor of his site thanks to a friendly hacker and knew he didn't really want to hurt anybody.
It took a bit of a darker turn when he told the people who had signed up to work as hitmen on his site - and who he made video themselves burning cars with signs on them to advertise how legit his site was, then never sent them the promised money for doing so - that I was the owner of the site who had ripped them off. That could have become ugly, but luckily even the thugs weren't dumb enough to believe him.
The only other time I've been a bit nervous was when Homeland Security wanted to have a "friendly" meeting with me on one of my trips to the US to attend a trial. They were friendly, but scary too.
The most frightening experience I've ever had is coming face to face with Lux, the owner of Pedoempire and Hurt2theCore, the most evil and reviled person on the entire dark web. He was responsible for procuring and hosting Daisy's Destruction, the most repulsive video ever made, created by Peter Scully, whose crimes were so bad, the Philippines are considering reinstating the death penalty especially for him.
It wasn't frightening because Lux was frightening - he was anything but. It was frightening because he looked so inoffensive and normal.
It was frightening because he was living proof that monsters walk among us and we never know.
[deleted] It is absolute crap for browsing the clearweb, and a lot of sites detect that it is odd traffic and you have to solve their CAPTCHAs before doing the most basic things
I’m sure you’ve seen some really bad stuff, do you regularly talk to a therapist to help? I've never seen a therapist (they don't really seem to be a thing in Australia they way they are in the US), but I have been known to unload on my partner and my dog
the below is a reply to the question
Yo, speaking as an Aussie, they absolutely are a thing, you can get them covered thru medicare, and I recommend it if you possibly can! Bro, therapy is awesome. I'm not against therapy as a thing, but I've honestly never been so traumatised that I feel I need it. Also I had a bad experience with a psychologist after I watched my partner die in an accident - they suggested I find God, and I noped out of there
the below is another reply to the answer
Therapist is an American term- we call them psychs. And the one who told you to find God was terrible and out of line. Yeah she didn't last long before I was over it. Also a doctor decided I needed Xanax, which was also a bad move, because what I really needed was to grieve and Xanax doesn't let you do that properly
Do you find any good things on the dark web? Happy stuff that gives people hope? Or just the trash? I like the psychonaut communities. They just want peace, love and mungbeans for everybody
Have you heard of "The Primarch System" rumor of the dark web? Sounds downright silly to me. But I'm curious if anyone who spends time on the deep web actually takes it seriously, or if as an idea it is connected to anything serious at all. Nah, up there with the Shadow Web and Mariana's Web. There's always people who want to find out where the "deeper" "more secret" "really dark" stuff is. To them I say what, hurtcore isn't dark enough for you?
Doesn't delving the murky depths of child predator forums categorize you with the child predators in the eyes of an investigating law enforcement agency? Do you have some sort of amnesty due to your journalism, or is that something you worry about having to explain away? Has your presence there ever caused some sort of a scare? No, I never went into any of the sites that had actual photos or videos (you can't un-see that shit), but did spend a lot of time in pedophile discussion forums. I also went to a hurtcore hearing and saw screenshots in the police files, as well as listening for two days to videos being described frame-by-frame and private communications between the site owner and the sadists.
Besides drugs and sex crimes, what else is going on in the dark web? Are there other interesting nooks and crannies? I often post screenshots of bizarre sites I find on my Twitter. However, the main uses for the dark web are drugs, digital/fraud goods and child exploitation
I have one, it might be rather boring though, but here goes. On these "child predator forums" are they actually forums devoted to stalking children and do they share social media profiles of children among themselves? That would be kik ids, snapchat and facebook ids, instagram, stuff like that, info that would allow online access and that may have been chosen for suitability? Creepy question I know, but anyway I would be interested to hear your answer. I came here from TrueCrime, you referred to these things in your post on that sub. I suspect I already know the answer yet would like to hear your take on it. Yes, they provide information and tips on how to approach children, how to ensure they won't tell, how to sedate them in some instances, where to find child exploitation material, how to remove metadata and any identifying characteristics in photos and videos before sharing and so on.
They don't tend to share socia media, as that is the sort of thing that can be traced easily. They do talk about how to approach kids on social media and on the worst forums how to blackmail children into stripping/meeting etc
the below is a reply to the above
So you're saying they have a more general approach rather than identifying individual children on the internet? Again a creepy question because what I suggest is that a child's social media could be used and circulated on the dark web as potential information to gain access by anonymity, even if it was just online access only. I actually wonder as I have recently read of the anonymity of apps like ''kik messenger'' and how the police are often unable to get any information from the communications as they remain encrypted and off the server and require little if any valid ID to make an account. No doubt photos from social media are uploaded as part of the materials they have. I haven't seen anything where they get together and try to track down a specific child, but I'm sure some predators do this. Most are more likely to abuse children in their orbit - family, kids of friends, or they work where they have access to children
I heard there are forums to download books but it was really dangerous, Is it true? I'm just a poor guy who wants to finish the young Jack sparrow series Whenever you download anything from a pirate site you run the risk of infection
What do you think of QAnon? Wackjob conspiracy
the below is a reply to the above
Who should the conspiracy theorists actually be worried about if they actually care about thwarting pedophilia? The vast, vast majority of child abuse takes place within the child's personal orbit - relatives, family friends, parents of their own friends, people involved in their activities (coaches, leaders, etc)
So, those people
the below is another reply to the answer
Also how to we get people to stop believing in QAnon? Outside my area of expertise, sorry
do you personally believe there was/is any truth to the "defense" (story) that DPR was a title handed down to different admins for the original silk road, or was it just a convenient defense? do you have any theories as to who satoshi nakamoto is? besides the original SR, are there any other darkweb markets that you think have a good enough story to turn into a book? eg sheep market? i've seen you talk a little about the child predator forums, and (as with h2tc) noted are mainly populated by males. i'm curious if you've ever encountered females on such forums/websites (eg. btfk) No. There was a time that I believed the person posting on the forums as DPR changed, but the ownership and administration of the market I believe never changed hands. Variety Jones is claiming a part ownership (which may or may not be true) but I believe that is so he can run a Fourth Amendment argument
So many theories have some credibility to them, but no one theory ticks all the boxes. Highly recommend the 3-part youtube deep dive by Barely Sociable
I'm not sure any one market has the story that Silk Road had, but I would like to write a definitive history that encompasses the most compelling features of all the markets. Backopy of BMR apparently got away clean. The admins of Atlantis got wind of a security issue and closed shop, trying to warn DPR. AlphaBay ended in Alexander Cazes death in a Bangkok prison cell. Then everyone flocked to Hansa, which by that time was being run by law enforcement. Evolution ended in the most brazen exit scam, followed by a bizarre cloak'n'dagger situation played out right here on reddit. The WSM/DDW follow-the-money case. And these are just some that come right off the top of my head. I just need a publisher to provide me an advance I can live off while I write it!
There were a very few people on the forums who identified as female (obvs anyone can be anyone on a dark web forum) and there have been one or two arrests of women in relation to dark web child pornography. Peter Scully's female assistant who carried out some of the torture was originally one of his victims, turned into a sadist.
What’s the one lingering unanswered question you have about SR? I am hanging out for Joel Ellingson to go to trial so that I can find out once and for all whether redandwhite, lucydrop and Tony76 are one and the same person.
There are several people who I got to "know" by their handles who I wonder about from time to time, but mostly I hope they are safe and well and i don't want to track them down or expose them
the below is a reply to the above
Eileen, I am fangirling PRE-TTY hard right now. Talking SR and Tony76 with you is how I imagine it feels to talk to a royal correspondent about Prince Andrew 😅 Ellingson being all three would be a very neat end to an otherwise insane story. Part of me wants to pin Oracle in with that trio too but that’s mostly a desperate attempt from me to add another layer to the madness. I miss the twists and turns that came with the rise and fall of SR. From your own experience - would you agree with the idea that more than one person staffed the DPR account? Thanks for the reply! Ha! You have no idea what it is like when I find someone who really knows about this stuff and can have informed conversations about it. I latch onto them and don't let go. The very BEST was meeting up with DPR's three deputies (SSBD in Australia, Inigo in US and Libertas in Ireland) so I could actually have conversations with people who knew more than I did! Variety Jones was cool too, but the conversation couldn't flow too freely thanks to him being incarcerated in Bangkok prison at the time.
I think others sometimes posted from the forum account, but Ulbricht kept a vice-like grip on his market account
the below is a reply to the above
I can imagine it’s so satisfying and exciting to get those tidbits of info that piece the jigsaw together. The bedlam that played out over the forum in the aftermath was a cloud of paranoia and adrenaline that kept me refreshing pages for days. Would love to hear accounts from SSBD, Inigo and Libertas from this time. One last question: what were your thoughts when the Chloe Ayling story first broke? I assumed it was a publicity stunt. I don't think that any more. I guess I can't blame her for milking her kidnapping for publicity in the aftermath, though I don't think she does herself any favors the way she goes about it sometimes
Sorry if this has been covered before but in your research, mainly related to child abuse, where are these children coming from? Children in their care/ family? Kidnapped? The vast majority of child abuse is carried out by someone within their social circle - family and acquaintances. However, the hurtcore stuff was often carried out in third world countries on orphans or where desperate families gave up their children to "benefactors" who they believed were going to provide food an education
What Casefile episodes have you written? I became obsessed with it and ripped through all the episodes and now nothing will fill that void. Thanks for your efforts! Casefile – the murder of Amy Allwine

Is there any way parents can keep their kids safe from this without being helicopter parents? I'll cut'n'paste a response i gave to someone else about this, because it was something that really stuck out to me:
The one thing I found really interesting when I was lurking the forums of the child predators was their frustration about how children are now taught from a very young age that certain touching and acts are wrong and that they shouldn't keep certain secrets. It came up over and over again that they could not abuse certain children because they knew those children had someone they would tell. It was pretty clear that education was a child's best defence against getting abused. Kids who speak up and who have close relationships with one or more people they are likely to confide in
What does it take in terms of degrees and experience to get into this business? Nothing official. I was a lawyer, but that had no bearing on what I do now (I did corporate law). I didn't have any official credentials when I began as a freelance journalist, though later I got a diploma of professional writing and editing. Anyone can be an author, provided they can write
If you could take a guess from your findings, what would be some speculative statistics on these abuse/torture sites? How many people (tens of thousands?) are involved? Do they generally come from the same places in the world or are they seemingly geographically random (based on victim ethnicity, or language spoken, perhaps)... what are some quantifying stats to wrap our heads around how prevalent this shit is? Most dark web users come from western countries, just because infrastructure supports it. The sites often have tens of thousands of registered users, but a lot of them would be people for whom curiosity got the better of them and who signed up then left. Active users more like in the thousands, hyper-active users the hundreds.
One of the things that makes life difficult for law enforcement is that most of these sites don't operate on a commercial basis - people aren't making money from them, so there is no cryptocurrency chain to follow. They operate on a sharing basis and to get access to the more private parts of the sites, a user has to upload "fresh" material and/or prove they are actively abusing a child. Hurt2theCore used to get users to have the children hold up signs or have the site name or a username written on their bodies with a marker. This stopped law enforcement from getting access to those parts (like the "producers lounge") of the sites unless they were able to take over an account of a user who already had access. Even then, the rules of the hurtcore sites would require constant new proof in order to maintain access.
Some sites allowed people to buy access, such as one called "Welcome to Video" and then were taken down by law enforcement carrying out blockchain analysis of the Bitcoin transaction that led to the owner when they cashed out to fiat without moneylaundering precautions
the below is a reply to the above
Do you think LE uses deep fakes to simulate a picture to gain access? Is that possible? It is definitely possible, but I don't know whether they are doing it as they are understandably secretive about their methods. I know it is deeply problematic, as even fake child porn is still illegal (even cartoon stuff, including some Hentai in some countries). But they have used questionable methods before, most notably running the dark web's largest site, Playpen, for over a year in order to identify contact offenders
the below is another reply to the original answer
Am I hearing you that many people are NOT doing this for financial gain? Just to do it and share it?? Child exploitation, yes, it is mostly a sharing community. Some people make some money out of it, but it is not like drugs where a lot of people are making a LOT of money
On the subject of abused kids... did you ever help the kids in any way? I never met any of the kids. I never saw any of the photos and videos. I don't know who any of the kids are.
Daisy has been taken into care and her identity changed. I hope she is doing okay
What exactly does the dark web look like? You hear about it often, but don’t know if it looks like Google Chrome, Safari, or just a page full of code. It looks like a normal browser and operates just like a normal browser. It's just that it can access sites that your normal browser can't.
e.g. http://thehub5himseelprs44xzgfrb4obgujkqwy5tzbsh5yttebqhaau23yd.onion/index.php is the URL of a dark web forum. If you plug it into your normal browser you will get an error. If you plug it into the Tor browser you will get the registration page for The Hub
How do you keep yourself from hating all humanity? I am happy to report that, even on the dark web, the good people outnumber the bad
Hi! First off I'd like to say that I find what you do quite fascinating and would love to do something like that in the future. My question is in regards to art and other forms of artistic expression on the dark web. Is it true that the dark web is a place where you can also find awesome things such as art and literature? Not really, because all that stuff is readily available on the clearweb. There are sites like the Imperial Library of Trantor, which is a pirate site for books, where you can read thousands of books for free, but that's really no different to The Pirate Bay. Some people share their LSD art, but again, nothing you won't find on the clearweb

Questions Answers
Have you ever gotten into legal trouble by exploring the dark places of the internet? Like, "sorry, officer, I was only surfing drug markets and child molester forums for my next journalism piece..." Do you worry about that? Do you have to take extra steps to protect yourself? I'm very careful not to go anywhere that it is illegal to visit. You will hear loads of stories about how easy it is to "stumble upon" child porn, but the fact is that those sites usually have names like "Preteen cuties" so you know exactly what they are, and in order to access them you have to register. So you have to make a very deliberate choice to log into them. I have no interest whatsoever in viewing any child abuse material, so I don't go into those places. When I was researching The Darkest Web, I went to the discussion forums that didn't allow any images (though they did link to sites that did), and even there I turned off images.
As for the drugs, weapons etc, there is nothing illegal about surfing them and looking around.
I do get a bit nervous every time I visit the US, especially when I was invited to a "friendly" lunch with Homeland Security once (it was reasonably friendly as it turns out, it was also terrifying)
the below is a reply to the above
Why did homeland security want to talk to you? They said it was about the murder-for-hire stuff, but some of the questions leaned toward something else
Is there anything that really concerns you about the dark web? Some of the things already discussed are beyond barbaric and that is only the stuff that has been found out about and been picked up by the media and your fantastic work. Do you think the public should expect worse and more horrific revelations from the dark web or is it just "more of the same" for lack of a better term and do you think the authorities are getting better in shutting this inhumanity down and catching the people responsible? I am definitely not against people taking back their online privacy and I actually think that buying drugs from the darknet markets is a safer and more sensible option than buying them from the dodgy dealer down the road. However the one thing that is really disturbing is that the dark web has provided a place for child predators to find each other and form communities where they support and egg each other on. Imagine a few years ago, someone who was into hurtcore could never tell anyone else and would be unlikely to ever come across another person with the same perversions. Now it is as simple as finding the relevant site on the dark web. When there are suddenly hundreds of people who all think and act in the same way, it normlalizes what they are doing.
One of the guys who got caught, Matthew Falder, was a sadist who used to crowdsource "ideas" for torturing the children and teens he was blackmailing into doing heinous things for him online. But apparently he was a "normal" intelligent popular guy
the below is a reply to the above
But how does everyone participate in those illegal sites without getting caught? You said in other comments that you tried to stay away from underaged sites because they were illegal. Can't they be tracked down, even with tor and a vpn? The thing that I don't understand is that even on the dark web people say you should stay away from illegal sites, but how are pedos not getting caught? they are getting caught, but the way they are getting caught is through painstaking detective work, looking for clues in photos, befriending them online and getting them to reveal things about themselves (what is known as social engineering). It takes a long time and many resources.
I say don't go there because (a) it is illegal and (b) you really shouldn't want to go there
Iirc you attended the trial of the person behind the horrific hurt core website that was exposed a few years back. I was wondering if there was anything in particular that happened during the trial that particularly shocked or horrified you that isn't really public knowledge or talked about? Reactions from the judge or perpetrator during the trial etc. As I remember it the guy was a fairly young loner who lived with his parents but would probably never have been expected to be behind the horrific vile things which he was found to be. Also, how did you get into investigative journalism/writing? I wrote in one of the other replies above about the little mute girl that has stayed with me. Also, at the insistence of the prosecution, the judge had to watch "Daisy's Destruction" which was a video of torture of a toddler. He put it off for two days and when he came back he was white. He didn't have the sound on, which is considered the worst part, but he still looked shell-shocked. I don't envy him.
I'll cut'n'paste re your last question: I was in London, working for one of the most conservative law firms in the world when the Global Financial Crisis hit. I liked the job but it struck me when people were losing their livelihoods that I was working for the bad guys. I'd always wanted to be a writer so when I came back to Australia I quit law and enrolled in a writing course planning to be a novelist, but I discovered I was better at journalism. I first wrote for newspapers here about Silk Road and it grew from there
the below is a reply to the above
Thanks for the reply.. that really must've been horrific for all involved from investigation to trial and for all of the victims (apart from the scum responsible of course). I guess it would be naive to assume that the end of this site did anything other than drive this depraved community even further underground. That is the part which is really scary to me but I suppose all we can do is have faith that the authorities are always close on the tail. Thank you for your work on reporting on this and raising this stuff more into the public consciousness and making people more aware of what kind of evil still lurks. It was the most disturbing two days of my life, made all the worse because they read out hours of interactions from the site where the children still had not been identified or the predators caught.
Hurt2theCore was not the last site of its kind and there are still hurtcore sites to this day on the dark web. The one hopeful thing is that there are international task forces that seem to work together really well (unlike when it comes to drugs and every law enforcement agency wants to take the lead and they all withhold info from each other). There are a lot of resources allocated to identifying predators and their victims. Sometimes this has involved some very controversial tactics, such as taking over the sites and letting them run, so that they can use social engineering techniques to identify those who are using the sites and who are actually abusing children
the below is another reply to the original answer
So daisy's destruction is real? Was it referred to by that name court? I always thought it was a myth Yes, Daisy's Destruction is real, it was referred to by name in court and the judge had to watch the 12 minutes of it that were hosted on Hurt2theCore.
The "myth" part is that it shows a murder. The toddler, Daisy, lived, though she suffered such horrific injuries she will never be able to bear children. Hopefully she was young enough that she will grow up without the memory.
However, Scully did murder at least one child, whose body was found under the floorboards of his house. it is not known whether he filmed her murder as no video evidence of it has come to light.
the below is a reply to the above
Thanks for answering. I actually watched a really good video on Hurt2theCore on youtube once, I think it was by a guy called Nexpo. It was really detailed and informative about the whole case - I forgot those details. Thanks again for replying, this AMA is really informative! I think I recall that one, it was from a few years ago.
An excellent podcast that came out recently is "Hunting Warhead", highly recommend a listen. It is a tough listen, but exceptionally well-told and respectfully handled
How do you detach yourself from your work? I'm an investigator for a law firm and I've had a lot of difficult working on wrongful death cases recently. Also, how did you first end up getting published? Any tips for people interested in that field? Thanks! I don't detach. When I was researching hurtcore, it was harrowing and affected me deeply. Writing that part of the book was a very slow process because I just couldn't be in that headspace for very long at a time. Once the book was written I didn't go back there.
I already had a reputation as a blogger and a freelance journalist when i pitched my book on Silk Road. I got an agent and it was auctioned off, with Pan MacMillan getting the rights. At the time, Silk Road was still going strong, and the book I wrote was about this new frontier of drug dealing that was changing the world. I was writing it "from the inside" as I had been an active part of the community for two years. However, right as I submitted the final manuscript to my publisher, Silk Road was busted and Ross Ulbricht arrested, so i had to quickly change the narrative to a "Rise and Fall" thing!
How many times have you approached law enforcement with information and how many times has the approach resulted in action? and... are there times where you know something nefarious is happening but history and the evidence at hand tells you it's not worth the effort? There is no point in approaching law enforcement to say "I have come across this site". If I've found it, you can guarantee law enforcement has found it as well.
The only time I've approached law enforcement was when I had information that they did not, which was when a friendly hacker provided me with a back door into the Besa Mafia murder-for-hire site. I got to see all the messages and orders etc. Of course LE knew about the site, but they did not have the details of the people who had hits taken out on them. We tried desperately to tell police in several countries that real people had paid real money to have other real people killed, but they just weren't interested. We sounded like crazy people talking about dark web hitmen, who were scams anyway and nobody was dead, so why should they be interested? They became much more engaged when one of the people WE HAD PREVIOUSLY TOLD THEM ABOUT later turned up dead
the below is a reply to the above
By law enforcement, do you mean only local or else the big agencies? I feel like I wouldn't tell my local police department because they wouldn't really know what to do. It would have to the the bigger agencies. FBI in US. NCA in UK. AFP in Australia. Nobody was very interested, although the FBI did visit at least one of the targets to let her know she was a target. She still wound up dead
What are some of the most prevalent uses of the dark web that AREN'T all shady and nefarious? We might be getting into semantics here, but people use Tor, which is the most possible darknet that is used to access the dark web, just for private browsing and ensuring that commercial interests aren't following them everywhere to bombard them with ads for some thing they looked up.
Some of the news organizations have a dark web presence so that whistleblowers can upload information safely. Even the CIA has a site on the dark web so that people can anonymously tip off matters of national security.
Other than that, there are just forums, where you don't have to worry that every single stupid thing you post will be saved in posterity forever, to be trotted out years later when you run for congress or something
After everything you've seen, does anything surprise you anymore or are you just numb to it at this point? Do you think there should be more education/exposure about the dark web than there is now or would that just be counter-productive as people would just find another place to hide? I'm curious to hear any favourite stories about the Psychonauts. I am not numb and I hope I never become numb. I really don't visit the horrible dark places very often, unless I'm researching something specific, and even then I don't look at pictures or videos. Most of the crime is pretty benign - I'm not fazed by people wanting a safer way to buy drugs.
I think there needs to be ongoing discussions about online activity and its misuse in general, but most crime still happens on the clearnet. The dark web is not nearly as large or prevalent as people fear.
For a long time, a dealer provided free LSD to anyone who wanted it for personal use (ie not sale) and to any organizations who were doing psychedelic therapy.
One psychonaut got busted and spent time in prison... only he still had bitcoin in a wallet and by the time he was released he was a millionaire. He would have just spent it on drugs otherwise :)
I know law enforcement has to delve into the predator side of the dark web. With what you've seen do you think it should be mandatory or an industry standard that law enforcement officials seek professional help? I couldn't imagine investigating that daily and not thinking less of humanity at some point. I'm pretty sure they do. I worked for Legal Aid for a while, and i know there were pretty strict rules in place for the lawyers who had to defend child abusers.
When I was at the trial for Lux, owner of Hurt2theCore, I met a cop whose job it was to watch all the videos and befriend the predators in an attempt to get them to slip up and reveal something of themselves. She said she had a little filing cabinet in her brain where she put all that stuff, and that making an arrest made it all worthwhile. She had made several arrests personally. She was a sex offender's worst nightmare :)
What’s one of your personal favorite investigations and what made it unique for you? By far the Besa Mafia murder-for-hire case. What made it unique was that, first, I was provided a back door into the Besa Mafia site by a friendly hacker, so i had information that nobody else had. But then I became "friends" for want of a better word with the owner of the site, Yura. Besa Mafia, of course, was not killing anyone, but Yura made a LOT of money scamming would-be murderers out of their money. We entered into a weird relationship over the years where i would report on his activities and he would try every trick under the sun to stop me from doing so, so that he could keep scamming people. He even offered me a job, helping him, because he had become so busy. He also provided me with names and details of people who had hits taken out on them so I could pass them on to law enforcement.
It all became horribly real when one of the people who had a hit put out of them wound up dead. It wasn't Yura of course, but the guy had paid him $13K before giving up on the site and doing it himself. The thing was WE HAD TOLD THE FBI about the hit and the $13K and they visited the victim, but then put it into the too-hard basket when she couldn't think who might have paid that much to kill her.

Wow. That’s actually pretty cool. Reminds me of an old saying. “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.” It's a seriously bizarre relationship. When I was hired as a consultant by CBS for a 48 Hours expose on dark web hitmen, he actually agreed to meet me in London. But he thought that CBS was going to advertise his site as the real deal and he got excited and sent them details of two people who had hits put out on them. CBS sent them straight to the police and very shortly after two arrests were made and it was all over the news, where they called his site a scam. Yura got so pissed about it, he never turned up to our meeting. They had even hired an Academy Award-nominated master of disguise makeup artist to disguise him!
are "red rooms" actually a prevalent thing, or just a widespread misconception or rumor? I ask in part because it's very easy to see, for instance, Mexican cartels dismembering people alive, etc, just on the clearnet. Hell, a couple days ago I saw a video posted of a cartel member cutting out a dude's heart while the guy was alive, and he ATE it. He fucking ATE it. So it seems plausible... The most popular myth of all is Red Rooms, where people – usually women – are tortured to death live on camera while those who have paid to watch type in torture commands in a chat box. Think the movie Hostel, with webcams. In this sense these have never been proven to exist. I get where you are coming from with the cartels, and the recent news item where they found those shipping containers set up with torture rooms freaked me out and made me wonder!
There is some truth to this rumour, but the execution is not like you see in the movies. Most notably, because it involves children, not adults abused on demand for paying pedophiles, but not to the point of death
the below is a reply to the above
The news about those shipping containers really made me speculate, since for every one person who gets caught doing something evil, there must be at least several more people who are very honed in their 'profession' doing the same evil deeds and worse, yet who evade being captured for decades. Anyway, based on morbid things I've seen, karma comes around eventually... I know, right? It really freaked me out, and then when I read that they already had intended victims for them but the police got to them first and put them in protected custody.. IMAGINE SEEING THOSE PICTURES AND KNOWING YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE IN THEM!! I would retire to a deserted island somewhere
the below is a reply to the above
Your line of work could easily result in something like C-PTSD down the road a little ways. I have a morbid curiosity, and have seen worse than those shipping containers had to offer. I'm sure you have as well. So one more question from you, if you don't mind: what are some proactive approaches to mental health you take to safeguard your sanity? A lot of wine. Cuddle my dog
Hi, there! This has been fascinating to read; thank you so much for sharing! I'm curious: why do you think so many people who don't want to engage with disgusting and illegal content like hurtcore find it so interesting to read about? Do you have any insight into your readership and the ethics associated with reading about these kind of topics? I think morbid fascination with the dark is exceedingly common - just look at how many people can't get enough about serial killers! In some ways it is probably a self-defense mechanism - the vast majority of true-crime readers are women. People like to be armed with knowledge. We also like to be spooked and scared.
As for my books, I don't really go into much gory detail, but the horror still shines through
Out of all 9-5 jobs out there, why this? What’s your motive? I got disenchanted by being a lawyer and I had wanted to be an author since childhood. The lawyering put me in a strong enough financial position that I could quit to do a uni course for a couple of years. My plan was to become a best-selling novelist, but my first chick-lit novel was nothing special. However, during the course, I found I did really well at journalism and was soon making a living as a freelance journo before I finished the course. My first major feature was on the Silk Road drugs market, which I had discovered thanks to a friend who was using it. Once I got in there I became fascinated by everything about it and started contacting the owner, users, vendors etc asking for stories (I was upfront about who I was). I began the first serious dark web blog - - and also became the go-to freelancer for Australian dark web stories. Then I pitched my first book and got a healthy advance for it.
I like working for myself, working from home and delving into things. Right now I have my dream job (though it wouldn't hurt to pay a bit more. I'm certainly not making anywhere near what I used to make lawyering, but I make enough to get by and I live pretty simply)
Did you ever do any writing on Brian Farrell and his role in Silk Road 2.0? I was Brian's cellmate for all of 2017 at Sheridan Federal Prison and heard all of his crazy stories. Was just curious as to the validity of them all. DoctorClu! I did write briefly about him in Silk Road, but it wasn't all positive. I remember being frustrated by the shitshow that was Silk Road 2.0 in the beginning, right after SR1 shut and when DPR2 took off and Defcon got all dramatic. It settled down after a bit and lasted a year, when it was revealed THEY HAD A FUCKING UNDERCOVER HOMELAND SECURITY OFFICER ON STAFF THE WHOLE TIME. But yeah, anyhow, they are probably true. I'd love to hear them :)
Was there ever something on the dark web that made you surprised ( in a good way) and smile ? So many things. Back in the day of the original Silk Road, I became obsessed with the forums, the people behind it, the intelligent discourse about the War on Drugs and philosophy. I found it amusing that drug dealers ran sales and giveaways. There were book clubs and movie clubs.
One of the most important people from that era was Dr Fernando Cauevilla, who became a member of Silk Road as "DoctorX". He was a real doctor who provided genuine, free, non-judgmental advice about drug use to the members of the site. It was quite an amazing time.

Did Ulbricht get taken down the way we were told in the news? What happened to all the Bitcoins? His arrest went down the way we were told in the news. How they located the server has never been disclosed (other than a fanciful explanation that NOBODY could believe). This explanation may be tested if Variety Jones runs a Fourth Amendment argument at his trial
The bitcoin in the wallet on Ross' computer was auctioned off by the Feds. He may have other bitcoin wallets stashed somewhere but nobody knows
the below is another reply to the original answer
Book/movie clubs on the silk road? Yeah, they would set reading and then everyone would come back and discuss the book, or they would have a time when everyone watched the same movie at the same time and chatted about it in real time
the below is a reply to the above
Haha that's amazing! I don't suppose you remember any of the books in question? They used to be a lot of philosophy books, especially on agorism. A Lodging of Wayfaring Men was one of the books. I remember V for Vendetta on a movie night
You don't seem to be pushing your most recent project and you're actually answering all the questions people ask, so I've got ask...are you some sort of government plant meant to destabilize reddit? This isn't how AMAs are supposed to work. You come in, you half ass a few questions, hawk whatever you're here to hawk, and then leave after 20 minutes. That's how it's done. lol I'm a genuine redditor from way back, and I love talking about the stuff I do. I did find that after I answered a question in an AskReddit thread a while back that blew up, the sales followed. But that was organic and I don't think you can force it to happen - Reddit can spot that a mile awy
What are some of the best things about the dark web? And can anyone get on it? Things you can buy that you can’t buy normally online? I really enjoy some of the forums, especially the psychonaut forums where people who like to trip on psychedelics get together and talk drugs and philosophy. There's a real "be kind to one another" vibe.
Getting on the dark web is easy, but not getting scammed when buying things takes a lot of homework. Yes, you can buy most things, but the most popular things are drugs and digital goods, i.e. things that depend on repeat custom and are easily transferable from seller to buyer
the below is a reply to the question
[deleted] You're doing the Good Work my man. I'd give you one of those awards if i knew how
What would you define the word "Safe" when it come to the internet (both www and dark web) world and are there any tips that I should follow to keep myself safe? It really depends on what YOU mean by safe. Tor, which is the darknet that provides access to the dark web will keep you safe from prying eyes and surveillance.
If you mean keep your information safe, the old-fashioned advice is to never reuse your password and to enable 2-Factor authentication wherever you can. Your information is quite likely somewhere on the dark web thanks to high-profile hacks of major organizations, but provided you don't re-use usernames and passwords, you really don't have to worry too much about it.
If you mean keeping yourself and/or any kid safe from predators, the only thing is to ensure you are educated about the approaches and methods they use.
Has Covid affected the Dark Web in any real way? Also I just read through all of the post comments, what incredible story’s. I would totally buy a book about the Silk Road or Yaru! re covid on the dark web, here's some notes I made for an interview I did recently:
* when Trump first hyped hydroxychloroquine as a potential miracle cure for COVID-19, drug dealers on the dark web seized on the claim.
* Listings quickly popped up on the most popular darknet markets
* A vendor on Whitehouse Market sells 100 Pills for $90, calling it a “Miracle Drug For Coronavirus” and suggesting buyers purchase in bulk to sell at a mark-up locally.
* Another makes the dubious claim “This drug will help people to beat Corona Virus” There are 11 listings on Empire Market currently, although more than half are from the one seller, who is a well-known and trusted vendor on the site.
* There were also people claiming to be selling infected blood or plasma of recovered COVID victims
* The infected blood stuff is just bullshit IMO Just because something is listed doesn’t mean it is genuinely for sale
* There's been some claims to be selling vaccines
* At the beginning there were also loads of listings for PPE
* some just used it as a marketing tactic - “fight off the virus with edible cannabis” or “relax with Xanax” and others as an excuse to raise their prices
* However, sales are low compared to sales of other drugs on the site, so it is difficult to say whether it’s something that will really catch on
* It didn’t take long for complaints to come in and market owners to clamp down on anything claiming to be a miracle cure or vaccine
* users were discouraging other users from profiting off the pandemic and requested markets provide health and safety information
* All the major markets forbid anything being sold as a cure for COVID. They flagged keywords and vendors would be told to take any listings down. They also put out PSAs telling people not to buy
* Monopoly: threatened to ban and.. “You are about to ingest drugs from a stranger on the internet - under no circumstances should you trust any vendor that is using COVID-19 as a marketing tool to peddle already questionable goods”
* It was a business decision. They don’t want anything that will attract attention or that might cause desperate people who wouldn’t normally use the DNMs to find their way there
* The idea behind DNMs generally is educated and responsible drug use. They really don’t want people dying - bad publicity and no repeat custom
* However the dark web is rife with scammers and people willing to prey on the desperate so there are still scams out there
* The only way I could ever see it becoming a thing is if there is a well-known potential cure/vaccine that is not being made widely available and could plausibly find its way onto the black market
Hi Eileen :) My question is about how you construct your Casefile episodes - I assume there is an extensive amount of outlining but do you write the final draft like a script specifically thinking about his voice? And about how long are they as far as - for example - does one hour equal 50-60 pages? Thank you. I initially write them as if I'm writing an article or book, but then go back and edit them to be read out and yes, when I do that, I do have his voice in my head lol. One episode is usually around 12,000 words. It then goes to another editor who edits the episode to be even more "casefileaa' before it finally goes to Casey
Have you been exposed to things in your investigations that have made you second-guess what you do? If so, what has made you keep going back? i've definitely had days where I question everything, but to be honest, I don't really hang around the horrible really dark places much. I did delve into the child predator forums when I was writing The Darkest Web, but I don't make it a habit to go there. The psychonauts are much more friendly
the below is a reply to the above
To continue with that- have you clicked images, links that make you a suspect in certain scenarios? Oh absolutely. Sometimes I go to a "Fresh Onion" site, which is a site that crawls all the .onion addresses (dark web URLs end in .onion rather than .com, org etc) and alerts you to any new ones. Sometimes they don't have any description, so you take a big risk clicking on any of those. The most dangerous button on the dark web is the "Random Onion" button, so I avoid that.
I'm pretty careful about what I click, but the moment something looks questionable I nope the fuck right out of there
the below is a reply to the above
Have you ever felt that you may be a suspect whether it be ok a drug site, a pedo site, etc. Have you ever been contacted by someone regarding your surfing habits? Well my actual surfing habits are protected by Tor, which means they are hidden from prying eyes, so no I haven't been contacted about them. I am very open on the dark web about who I am and what I'm doing there - I use the name OzFreelancer on all of the markets and forums. I don't go to the sites that host child abuse images - you can't un-see that shit and I don't need it in my head.
As noted in another reply, I was contacted by Homeland Security on one of my visits to the US and taken for a "friendly" lunch.
the below is another reply to the original answer
Psychonauts are more friendly than most people. Something about regular mind altering experiences makes you want to be less of a cunt. Yeah, I call The Majestic Garden a little corner of sunshine and rainbows on the dark web :)
the below is a reply to the above
More about The Majestic Garden please? What is grown there? It's a place where people talk about and source psychedelics - most notably LSD, the 2C family, DMT and MDMA. Talk about and sourcing harder drugs is forbidden. In fact the admins snuck in an autocorrect so that any time someone wrote the word "cocaine" it would post as "a raging hardon" :D
Do you fear that seeing all this stuff might turn you emotionally blunt? I'm not watching any of this stuff on purpose (even the clearnet stuff), because I fear that the more you see of it, the more normal it gets, and ultimately, the more it will fuck you up. To quote the movie 8mm... "If you dance with the devil, the devil don't change. The devil changes you." No, I can't even watch "3 Guys 1 Hammer" in its entirety, let alone look at the really dark materials on the dark web. When I was researching The Darkest Web, going into the predator forums did the opposite of making me blunt. It was the shortest section of the book but took the longest to write because it was so emotionally draining
the below is a reply to the above
I have to ask, what is "3 Guys 1 Hammer"? It's a video of two teenagers murdering an innocent man with a hammer that went viral on the gore sites of the regular internet. It's truly horrible.
The teens killed over 20 people. I wrote about them in my book (excuse the plug)
I heard somewhere that you foster dogs. Is that something you do to counter all the terrible humans you encounter in your research - everyone knows how dogs are better than people. How many dogs have you fostered and which one was your favourite? After my dog died I knew I didn't want to have another dog as I wanted to travel more. So I thought fostering dogs would be the answer as you give them love for a few weeks and then they go to their forever home. My first foster, Roy, was a big fat failure and now he lives here and sleeps in our bed and is the most spoiled dog alive
the below is a reply to the above
Did you then just decide to quit travelling? I don't know anything about Roy, but I already think I love him. Nah, he has family he can stay with when I go away, but any major travelling has been thwarted by COVID for now anyway. I'm in a hard lockdown city.
And I'm sure Roy would love you too, u/suckmyhugedong
Given how much you know about the dark web, what kind of crazy awful nightmares have you had? This could be a really good one. Thank you Probably the worst thing was delving into the forums where child predators gathered. I never looked at any videos or photos, but just seeing their discussions sickened me. The one thing that keeps coming back to me came out of the sentencing hearing that I attended of Lux, owner of Hurt2theCore, considered the most heinous website in history. In court they read out a conversation between him and an abuser who made videos of torture of the mute disabled child in his care. They were joking "at least she won't be able to tell anyone" . the abuser wasn't caught, at least by that stage
As an indie author, how have you sourced freelancers? Did you seek out those that have specific expertise or did you work with editors from your time as a traditionally published author? I learned to do everything myself before I started outsourcing.
I work with a professional editor who happens to be a friend of mine from back when we did a writing course together. I've been doing my own covers, but now that I have some royalties coming in, I've engaged a professional cover artist from Reedsy to develop a brand and more professional-looking covers for me. It is the hardest thing to find people you really want to work with and who are in budget.
I still haven't got the hang of email lists, newsletters or a website - they are all in a total mess at the moment and I'd love to find someone who can do them, but again it is that problem of finding the right person who is within budget
is it true that most of the internet is in the "dark web"? if so about how much percent is it? By far the biggest myth is that it 10x larger than the Internet. I mean, this should be common sense anyway, but it gets propagated by tabloid media all the time. It stems a lot from people using the terms "deep web" and "dark web" interchangably when they are different things.
The statement that 90% (or thereabouts) of the internet is hidden is true, and it is called the deep web (not the dark web). The 90% that is hidden is all those pages you won’t get to using google or any other search engines. There’s nothing scary about that – in fact it works in your favour.
The easiest example is your bank. The bank’s major page is available to anyone who searches the web (part of the 10%, also known as the “clearweb”). But once you log in, all those pages you can access that contain your personal details? Not searchable on google. Each one of those pages is part of the 90% of the deep web. Business and government intranets also make up part of the deep web. Honestly, it’s nothing to worry about.
The dark web – the hidden services available through Tor and other anonymising programs – makes up a tiny fraction of the deep web. A really, really tiny fraction. It is infinitely smaller than the clearweb.
Do you think human trafficking happens on the dark web? Last year (I think) there was a really bizarre story here in the UK about a model who was supposedly kidnapped to order, drugged and transported overseas by a group called "Black Death". The official story is that BD doesn't exist, and the kidnapper was a fantasist. Is it likely that humans are bought and sold into slavery over the dark web? There are no slick websites with auctions for slaves on the dark web, but I have no doubt that human traffickers use dark web encryption to communicate.
(here comes the second plug for the thread) - I wrote about the kidnap of Chloe Ayling and the Black Death Group in Murder on the Dark Web
What ever happened to the plural of mongoose storyline? it seems like after he was arrested in the united states, his case just fizzled away. did you ever find out any more information about yuri after he cancelled the interview with a news program? what happened with peter scully's case? i read that there was a fire where a lot of evidence against him was held and it all went up in smoke. are there any character and/or personality storylines that you feel haven't been told or are still a complete mystery? eg. tony76 1. He is still in the MCC in NY and awaiting trial. It has taken a long time because he had terrabytes of information to go through and things would have slowed down due to covid. I understand he is running the Fouth Amendment argument that Ulbricht probably should have run in the first place
2. I last heard from Yura just a few weeks ago. He is still scamming. There are some more programs in the works about him
3. Yes there was a very convenient fire, but he still got sentenced to life and i hope he rots in hell
4. I am madly curious to know what is happening with the extradition of James Ellingson, aka “MarijuanaIsMyMuse”, aka "redandwhite", MAYBE aka Tony76. I would LOVE to know that full story!
the below is a reply to the above
Wow, this shit is a blast from the past. I used to love following the darknetmarket drama. Did you write about PoM and tony76 in one of your books? Ever since reddit shut down /darknetmarket I've been out of the loop. Yes, I wrote about them in The Darkest Web
I was in touch with PoM/Mongoose when he went on a posting rampage on MyPlanetGanja, then visited him in Bangkok prison several times. Wrote all about it :)
This may have been answered by a previous post pertaining to native language barriers to specific sites on the dark web, but in your investigations, did you come across content/pages/forums from warzones? Middle East, Burma, Afghanistan, etc? If yes, what was the most memorable bit? There are loads of sites in foreign languages, but it is too difficult for me (a one-language numpty) to attempt to translate through AI, and it is not worth hiring a translator when they could just turn out to be Cat Facts

Preguntas frecuentes (FAQ) del protocolo LBRY

Esta introducción a las preguntas frecuentes (FAQ) del protocolo LBRY pueden estar sujetas a cambios en el futuro en el documento original de LBRY y quizás algunas características no sean permanentes. Sin embargo, los posibles cambios en el documento serán para mejorar LBRY. Por favor, te invito a que explores toda su documentación técnica y de preguntas frecuentes al inglés para que conozcas más a profundidad el protocolo LBRY. Seguiré compartiendo con ustedes más conocimiento y temas relacionados a su moneda.

¿Qué es exactamente LBRY? ¿Es un protocolo, una aplicación, un sitio web o una empresa?

Para la mayoría de los usuarios, LBRY será un lugar donde puedan encontrar excelentes videos, música, libros electrónicos y más: imagine una gran biblioteca digital que está disponible en todos sus dispositivos. Pero, debajo del capó, LBRY tiene muchos componentes trabajando juntos.
En primer lugar, LBRY es un nuevo protocolo que permite a cualquiera crear aplicaciones que interactúen con contenido digital en la red LBRY. Las aplicaciones creadas con el protocolo permiten a los creadores subir su trabajo a la red LBRY como un hosts o anfitrión (como BitTorrent), establecer un precio por la transmisión o descarga del contenido (como iTunes) o publicarlo gratis (como en YouTube, sin anuncios). El contenido que publiques podrían ser videos, archivos de audio, documentos o cualquier otro tipo de archivo.
Los sitios tradicionales de video (u otro contenido) como YouTube, Instagram y Spotify almacenan el contenido en servidores y permiten a los espectadores descargarlas. También permiten a los creadores ganar algo de dinero a través de publicidad u otros mecanismos. Sin embargo, hay algunos inconvenientes bien conocidos, especialmente para las personas cuyo material se percibe como no apto para anunciantes.
LBRY pretende ser una alternativa a estos sitios, permitiendo a los editores y sus fanáticos interactuar directamente sin el riesgo de desmonetización u otra intromisión. Y lo que hace que todo esto sea posible es la tecnología blockchain desarrollada por el creador de Bitcoin.
¿Tienes que entender algo de esto para usar y disfrutar de LBRY? No. ¿Sigue siendo importante para los usuarios? ¡Sí!

¿Por qué construir un protocolo?

La creación de protocolos, no plataformas, es la mejor manera de asegurar una Internet abierta y gratuita. Casi todos los gigantes tecnológicos actuales son un servicio centralizado que vende información personal de los usuarios y atención a los anunciantes. Gastan mucho dinero persiguiendo tu producto (tu información personal y tiempo/atención), pero al final del día, los usuarios (usted) lo ofrecen de forma gratuita a cambio de acceso a la plataforma.
Creemos que los usuarios deberían ser dueños de su contenido (y su privacidad) en lugar de entregarlo a un gigante corporativo y sus amigos de la publicidad. Si crees que somos paranoicos, hay docenas de ejemplos de compañías que abusan de los usuarios y actúan en contra de sus intereses. No es paranoia si realmente quieren atraparte.

Comunidad impulsada y de código abierto

Todo lo creado para impulsar LBRY es de código abierto y está diseñado para ser controlado por el público en general. Cientos de desarrolladores han contribuido a las bases del código central que impulsan a LBRY y miles de otros miembros de la comunidad han ayudado de otras maneras: reclutando creadores, realizando traducciones, haciendo gráficos y mucho más.
Si bien hay una compañía detrás de LBRY llamada LBRY Inc., intentamos atar nuestras propias manos tanto como sea posible para que nunca podamos convertirnos en un megacorp sin rostro malvado. Al hacer que todo sea de código abierto y estandarizado, cualquier persona en el mundo puede alejarse de LBRY con todo intacto (o hacer una versión nueva y mejor).

¿Cómo y por qué LBRY usa blockchain?

La tecnología Blockchain como Bitcoin y LBRY permite a las personas crear bases de datos que ninguna entidad individual controla.
Con Bitcoin, cuando envía dinero a alguien, su computadora transmite "hey, la persona con este secreto particular (una clave privada) está enviando dinero a esa persona" a la red, y el algoritmo de minería asegura que todos estén de acuerdo en que, de hecho, envió ese dinero, por lo que su saldo disminuye y la del destinatario aumenta. Para más información sobre esto, mira este gran video del LBRYian @3Blue1Brown.
En LBRY, el mismo mecanismo se utiliza para almacenar un índice (index) de qué contenido está disponible y cómo descargarlo, así como las transacciones financieras (como propinas y compras de contenido pago) utilizando una moneda similar a bitcoin llamda LBC (LBRY Credits). Cuando un creador publica algo en LBRY, se realiza una entrada en la cadena de bloques de LBRY. Puede considerarlo como un anuncio: Hola a todos, he publicado este archivo, aquí hay información al respecto e instrucciones sobre cómo descargarlo de la red de igual a igual.
Por las mismas razones que nadie puede evitar que se realice una transacción de bitcoin, nadie puede evitar que aparezca una transacción (como una publicación o una sugerencia) en la cadena de bloques de LBRY. Existen otros sitios que comparten su contenido desde una red de datos punto a punto (peer-to-peer). Sin embargo, el índice (index) de contenido disponible todavía está centralizado y puede censurarse fácilmente.

Esto es asombroso, toma mi dinero

Tenemos malas noticias para ti, puedes usar LBRY gratis. Descargua la aplicación LBRY o visita, y de forma gratuita y experimenta la libertad de contenido. Únete a la comunidad en Discord y dinos lo que piensas.

¿Cómo beneficia LBRY a los consumidores de contenido? ¿Por qué debería molestarme en preocuparme?

¿Ves YouTube? Imagina pagar unos centavos para eliminar todos los anuncios. El 100% del pago irá directamente al creador de contenido, y seguirán ganando más que las ofertas de YouTube, por lo que querrán aprovechar aún más el contenido que amas.
¿Usas BitTorrent? Imagina que te pagan por inicializar archivos en la red. Debido a que existe un mercado para estos archivos, finalmente puedes encontrar canciones y películas extrañas que no pueden soportar un enjambre de torrentes basados solo en la popularidad.
¿Compras en la tienda de iTunes? Imagina pagar menos por canciones, episodios de TV y videos musicales mientras que el 100% del costo va directamente a los creadores.
LBRY es una biblioteca de medios digitales a tu alcance. Puedes almacenar cualquier tipo de contenido y ponerlo a disposición a un muy bajo costo. En unos años, LBRY puede convertirse en su ventanilla única para todo lo digital, desde libros electrónicos hasta videojuegos y películas. Una aplicación para gobernarlos a todos, pero aún dejando más poder en tus manos porque está descentralizado por diseño.

¿Qué pasa con el nombre LBRY?

La primera pregunta de los recién llegados es a menudo: "¿Cómo se pronuncia?" Respuesta: library.
"¿Es un acrónimo?" No. "Entonces, ¿por qué confundir a las personas con mayúsculas y vocales eliminadas?"
En primer lugar, LBRY es un protocolo de internet, al igual que HTTP. El contenido en LBRY se sirve a los usuarios a través de "nombres LBRY", que se ven así: lbry://itsawonderfullife. Muy similar a la URL que escribe en su navegador de Internet. LBRY no es solo nuestro nombre de marca, sino la cadena de caracteres que hemos elegido para liderar nuestros URI (Identificador Uniforme de Recursos).
También sirve como una forma truncada de "library (biblioteca)", que refleja nuestra misión: cada película, canción, libro y aplicación que se haya hecho, disponible en cualquier lugar. Nuestra visión para LBRY es crear un repositorio de medios masivo para el siglo XXI que se construya en una red descentralizada controlada por los usuarios. LBRY es para una biblioteca tradicional lo que Amazon es para una tienda por departamentos.
¿Es un nombre extraño? Quizás. Pero quisiéramos señalar el éxito de marcas como Hulu, Yahoo!, Etsy, Skype, Tumblr y Zillow. Al final, una buena compañía con una sólida base de usuarios será recordada independientemente de su nombre. Y una empresa con una marca tan sencilla como aún puede fallar.
LBRY está funcionando bien como marca hasta ahora. El SEO es una consideración principal para la marca de inicio, y LBRY ya domina los resultados de búsqueda de nuestra marca.

¿Cómo funciona el nombre de LBRY? ¿Por qué no solo asigna nombres de la misma manera que los dominios de Internet?

El problema

Antes de hablar sobre cómo funcionan los nombres (URL) en LBRY, es importante comprender el problema. ¿Qué es un sistema de nombres y por qué tenemos uno?
Los nombres existen para que podamos asignar una palabra o término legible y comprensible a un número o ID más difícil de recordar. En el DNS tradicional (sistema de nombres de dominio), los nombres se asignan a una dirección IP numérica. En LBRY, los nombres se asignan a una identificación única y permanente que represente una pieza de contenido digital y/o una identidad del editor.
Diseñar un sistema de nombres que funcione bien y asigne nombres de manera justa es bastante difícil. Considere el sistema de dominio que probablemente esté utilizando para acceder a este documento. El dominio de LBRY solía ser durante mucho tiempo, en lugar de ¿Es porque está proporcionando un servicio único? ¡No! Esto se debe a que un usurpador estaba en posesión de él, simplemente buscando subastar el nombre de dominio al mejor postor en demanda. Tuvimos que negociar durante meses (y pagar mucho $$$) para obtener el dominio y no queremos que los usuarios de LBRY pasen por una experiencia similar... preferimos dejarlo en manos de incentivos y reglas de protocolo fijo.
El sistema tradicional tiene varios otros defectos. Está centralizado y es un mecanismo de censura, ya que los titulares no tienen la verdadera propiedad de su dominio, solo el proveedor de nivel superior. Los dominios de nivel superior (como .io) también son arbitrarios y en gran medida ilógicos (si diseñamos el sistema de nombres de dominio nuevamente, ¿realmente querríamos agregar un ".com" arbitrario a la URL más prestigiosa para una palabra clave dada? ¿LBRY tiene algo que ver con el Océano Índico?). Finalmente, además de incentivar el mal comportamiento, la estructura de tarifa plana de los dominios evita el buen comportamiento de aquellos que tienen un precio.
Queríamos un sistema que:
  • Permita que una sola palabra se asigne directamente a un contenido, sin otra extensión o modificador.
  • Permita a los creadores adquirir una URL y poseerla de forma permanente y para siempre, sin tarifas continuas.
  • Permita que se ubiquen varias piezas de contenido en una sola palabra clave mientras se mantienen las URL lo más cortas y memorables posible.
  • Evitar que los ocupantes ilegales extorsionen a los creadores.
Después de una consulta significativa con creadores, consumidores, economistas, informáticos y más, diseñamos el sistema de nombres de LBRY.

¿Cómo LBRY establece un nombre?

En primer lugar, es absolutamente posible poseer y controlar una URL para siempre. En LBRY, una entrada de URL se denomina reclamo. Por simplicidad, se puede considerar que un reclamo consiste en:
  • El nombre (una cadena de caracteres elegidos por el creador)
  • La cantidad de créditos
  • Datos adicionales relacionados con el contenido y/o la identidad del editor
Las reclamaciones en LBRY no son consuntivas. Cuando designa una cantidad de créditos en un reclamo, no se pierde ni destruye nada más allá de la tarifa de transacción relativamente mínima. En cualquier momento, los créditos asignados a un reclamo pueden usarse para otro propósito, recuperarse o enviarse a otro lugar. Cuando esto sucede, el reclamo ya no se considera válido.

LBRY admite varios tipos de resolución de URL:

Permanente lbry://# Esta URL consta de un nombre y una identificación asignada al azar. Esto es propiedad y control permanente del editor. Las URL permanentes admiten la coincidencia de ID parcial ordenada temporalmente, por lo que pueden ser bastante cortas (por ejemplo, lbry://nombre#8 o lbry://nombre#ab)
Corto lbry://# Esta URL consta de un nombre y uno o más caracteres (orden de llegada para preservar la unicidad) forman la URL permanente. Esto es propiedad y control permanente del editor. Si se pone a disposición una URL más corta, la siguiente reclamación en línea se hará cargo de su resolución.
Comunidad lbry:// De todos los reclamos llamados , esto devuelve la publicación con la mayor cantidad de créditos comprometidos, no solo por el editor, sino por toda la comunidad. Estas URL no son permanentes ni propias, sino que están controladas por la propia comunidad, lo que permite que la resolución se establezca en lo que la comunidad determine más apropiado.
Canal lbry://<@channel_name> Una URL correspondiente a una identidad de editor. Estos resuelven la identidad de un editor específico y sus publicaciones. Las URL de canal se pueden especificar con o sin el modificador #. Una URL no modificada devuelve el canal determinado por la comunidad.
Firmado lbry://<@channel_name>/ El contenido publicado con el nombre dentro del canal de <@channel_name>.

URL para llevar

  1. Los nombres no se compran, solo se reservan, no se pierden créditos, solo se depositan. Si gana la subasta por un nombre, sus créditos se mantienen con ese nombre hasta que decida retirarlos (en cualquier momento que lo desee). No le está comprando el nombre a nadie, y nadie se beneficia de la transferencia de nombres. Es solo una prueba de quién está dispuesto a depositar la mayor cantidad de créditos para un nombre. El único inconveniente es que no puede gastar los créditos en el contenido o retirarlos mientras están en reserva.
  2. Cuanto más tiempo se mantenga un nombre de comunidad, más tiempo se mantendrá. Las URL controladas por la comunidad no cambian instantáneamente si se designan más créditos, especialmente si lo ha mantenido por un tiempo. Por cada mes que se controla un nombre, se agrega 1 día al período de espera, por un máximo de 7 días (después de 7 meses).
  3. Todos tienen algo que decir. Si reclama lbry://bestmovieever y su película está a la altura de las expectativas, las sugerencias y compras de los usuarios son una fuerza poderosa para mantener su contenido allí. Si la comunidad considera que la resolución de una URL es incorrecta, pueden unirse para cambiarla en cualquier momento. Esta es una fuerza poderosa que mantiene a raya a los malos actores que ya ha demostrado ser útil.
  4. Los nombres son más como términos de búsqueda. Cuando un usuario busca en la red LBRY, o un motor de recomendación sugiere contenido, se consideran todas las reclamaciones válidas. No tener la URL de la comunidad para su contenido no significa que nadie lo verá. Se pueden mostrar muchas piezas diferentes de contenido con el mismo nombre cuando los usuarios buscan contenido en la red.
Para obtener más detalles sobre las reclamaciones, consulte la implementación de la reclamación.


Ya sea que esté enamorado de este diseño o no, es probable que esté de acuerdo en que es diferente a todo lo que hemos visto antes.
La conclusión es que LBRY se dedica a proporcionar verdadera libertad de contenido. Queremos proporcionar el mejor método del mundo para que creadores y consumidores compartan y moneticen contenido digital sin intermediarios. Pensamos que este es un método superior a las alternativas, pero tampoco somos dogmáticos al respecto.
Estamos tratando de resolver un problema muy difícil de una manera novedosa, y estamos comprometidos a darle una oportunidad a este sistema. 1,000,000 de piezas de contenido han funcionado a la perfección. Pero si alguna vez vimos este sistema perjudicar en lugar de ayudar, no dudaríamos en cambiarlo.

Ethereum está logrando un Internet de valor y mejora ecosistemas de criptomonedas

Es indudable que la web como la conocíamos hace 10 años cambió y ahora se prevén cambios constantes, casi como si fuera un organismo biológico vivo. En un momento en que tenemos comunicaciones globales, baratas y rápidas, deberíamos tener un sistema financiero igualmente global, barato y rápido, pero aún no está pasando a la velocidad que deseamos. Ethereum está permitiendo que este avance se dé fe manera acelerada. En esta nota te dejamos una perspectiva de lo que viene sucediendo.
Octubre 16.- Internet está a punto de entrar en una nueva fase, una en la que los individuos reclaman más poder y el valor se va a mover tan libremente como GIFs de gatos.
Ethereum hace parte de este cambio estructural gracias a las posibilidades que está abriendo mientas nos hace cuestionar ¿No es extraño que Internet no sea bueno para el dinero? Esto lo está revaluando ETH en cada uno de sus avances.
Revisemos cómo su estructura y disposición está generando un cambio a lo que conocemos en el uso de Internet.

Logrando un Internet de Valor

El recambio que se viene dando sobre el valor del mundo económico y las finanzas, creadas sobre la red de Internet actual casi no tienen otra opción que convertirse en corporaciones con fines de lucro, con un código patentado y cerrado al público.
Pero cuando la red en sí está diseñada para transferir valor, permite que surjan diferentes modelos comerciales. En esta nueva frontera, los usuarios mantienen el control de sus fondos y su información personal.
El valor, es decir, dinero, activos, valores, propiedad, es tan nativo de las aplicaciones de Internet como los videos de gatos. Y ya está sucediendo gracias a Ethereum.
No se trata de más criptomonedas. No se trata del próximo Bitcoin o de conocer el próximo token con el que se nos bombardeará
La Internet de valor viene a sacudir las finanzas tradicionales y la web actual, por la simple razón de que es mejor: Más rápido, personal y seguro. Se trata de un cambio en la base misma de la web en la que Ethereum se abre paso.

¿Cómo funciona la Internet de Valor?

Hay una capa de dinero que se agrega en la parte superior. Una red distribuida que transfiere valor sin depender de bancos, agentes de liquidación y compensación. El dinero se mueve más rápido, más barato y globalmente, al igual que el resto de Internet.
Y esta red no solo es buena para transferir valor, también puede procesar cualquier cosa que pueda hacer una computadora, lo que permite a los desarrolladores crear aplicaciones.
El nombre de esta nueva capa base de valor es Ethereum.
La diferencia con las aplicaciones de Internet a las que estamos acostumbrados es que en estas aplicaciones el valor no es una ocurrencia tardía, está en el centro.
Gracias a las herramientas dispuestas por ETH, los servicios financieros más complejos están ahora al alcance de cualquier persona con acceso a la red.
Los usuarios pueden intercambiar tokens con unos pocos clicks, y debido a que el valor se puede programar, esto puede variar desde el token Ether nativo de la red hasta representaciones sintéticas de todo, desde oro hasta acciones de Tesla.
Por ejemplo: Cualquiera puede comprar tokens vinculados al valor del dólar. Y no solo eso, pueden depositarlos en protocolos de préstamos y ganar intereses sobre esos tokens.
Los negociadores pueden tomar prestado de esos grupos de activos para negociar. Otros pueden hacer que un programa de computadora ejecute automáticamente una estrategia comercial, como un asesor robotizado con esteroides.
Hay una lotería sin pérdidas, transmisión de salarios casi por segundo, tokenización e intercambio de camisetas de edición limitada, que se entregan en sus versiones físicas y también se pueden usar en mundos de realidad virtual.
Para los desarrolladores, las aplicaciones financieras son el fruto más fácil de construir sobre una red de valor, pero es solo el comienzo.
No hay duda de que la Internet del valor va a revolucionar las finanzas tradicionales y la web actual, por la sencilla razón de que es mucho mejor.
Es por eso que los desarrolladores que trabajan desde sus computadoras portátiles y se congregan en hackatones en todo el mundo han pateado el viejo tablero de juego y han comenzado de nuevo.

Ventajas reales que ofrece Ethereum

Ethereum tiene como principal objetivo los contratos inteligentes, los cuales se ejecutan de forma segura y sin necesidad de intervención de terceros, ya que estos están diseñados de tal forma que se cumpla “sí o sí”.
Este cambio de paradigma desde el cumplimiento está permitiendo el ahorro de millones de dólares a nivel global.
Ninguna entidad gubernamental ejerce control sobre Ethereum, por lo que es y depende de la confianza de los usuarios y del volumen de transacciones que se realicen con él, lo que da a los usuarios la tranquilidad de que al pagar con Ethereum, ya que el dinero irá directamente al propietario del producto o servicio que se paga.
Ethereum está desarrollado en un sistema de código abierto, que permite mejoras cuando es necesario. Esto beneficia a los usuarios de la plataforma ya que les da mayor estabilidad y transparencia, y si ocurre un error o falla en alguna transacción, se podría solucionar ingresando el código fuente de la misma.
Uno de los mayores miedos en las transacciones financieras son las estafas o dinero falso, lo cual es muy común con el dinero fiduciario ya que al tratarse de papeles se pueden imprimir fácilmente (con un resultado similar), sin tener ninguna validez legal. En el caso de Ethereum eso no es posible porque es una moneda virtual con identificadores propios (hash) que la hacen única.
En el caso de Ethereum, su uso es más económico debido a la ausencia de terceros, esto lo convierte en una opción de pago mucho más rentable en comparación con otras monedas o medios de pago tradicionales, especialmente cuando se usa para realizar compras a través de Internet o incluso cuando se decide realizar pagos en tiendas físicas o locales comerciales.

Faswet en la nueva realidad

De esto se hace cargo Emet y todo su ecosistema, de proveer más posibilidades de libertad en el uso de las finanzas descentralizadas a los usuarios de Internet.
Faswet permite la utilización de la tecnología para evitar intermediarios logrando mayor capacidad de manejo de los recursos lo que se traduce en rentabilidad.

Operazione "Delirio" (le Red Rooms sono reali?)

È davvero possibile che due 17enni piemontesi siano riusciti ad accedere alle fantomatiche red rooms? Personalmente ho sempre pensato che fossero una leggenda urbana, un altro creepypasta, eppure molti articoli sembrano indicare che i carabinieri implicati nell'operazione delirio ne siano praticamente certi, arrivando ad affermare che queste live stream siano portate avanti nel sud-est asiatico a scapito di minorenni che vengono seviziati, torturati e in alcuni casi persino uccisi. Sembra inoltre che sia possibile "comprare" uno di questi atti attraverso bitcoin. Ora, io non sono un informatico e le mie conoscenze sono molto limitate, però qui i casi sono pochi:
1) Sia i giornalisti che le forze dell'ordine stanno facendo disinformazione involontaria a causa della loro ignoranza.
2) Due 17enni piemontesi hanno effettivamente trovato delle red rooms sul deep web.
3) Qualcos'altro
Per concludere: da ciò che ho letto sembra che la ricostruzione dei carabinieri si basi sulle chat delle supposte avventure nel deep web tra i due ragazzi... in più "... dalle indagini è spuntato anche un minorenne giudicato "dotato di eccezionali e precoci competenze tecnico-informatiche" che avrebbe personalmente partecipato on-line, “live”, assieme ad altri utenti, pagando in bitcoin, a delle vere e proprie torture ed abusi sessuali su minori, compiute in diretta da soggetti adulti"
Cosa ne pensate?

Para comprender que es bitcoin, conocer algunas de sus caracteristicas, funcionamiento, historia es necesario conocer de algunos otros temas y conocer sus relaciones. Al escuchar bitcoin normalmente se hace referencia al dinero, por lo que es necesario hablar de ello y de su historia.
no hay un dato especifico acerca de desde cuando existe el dinero, no hay un dato exacto, pero según estudios se puede decir que desde que existe el lenguaje o una comunicación, desde ahí existe el dinero, hasta ciertos estudios hechos con animales como los chimpancés han revelado sobre la naturaleza del dinero.
El dinero es una forma de comunicación, el dinero no tiene valor, solo representa algo abstracto al verdadero concepto del valor, es un medio para comunicar el valor, utilizamos el dinero para comunicar valor a los demás para expresar a los demás el valor que le otorgamos a algún producto o servicio.
Así podemos hablar acerca de los inicios del dinero, hace mucho tiempo se hacia algo que se llama trueques, los cuales permitían cambiar artículos por otros, y un ejemplo podría ser cambiar alimentos por animales, unos mangos por unas verduras y así sucesivamente muchas cosas más. Pero si analizamos esto, el verdadero significado de esto era otorgar un cambio de algo que poseía un valor por algo que también poseía valor.
La evolución del dinero siguió y he aquí se encontró la era donde se buscaban artículos que fueran facil de transportar, difícil de obtener (poseían un gran valor) facil de dividir y de aprecio universal por todas las personas, y he aquí encontramos los metales preciosos. Ahora la representación del dinero era a través de estos, a cambio de estos metales se obtenían productos y servicios y lo curioso es que el verdadero significado de esto seguía siendo el valor que tenían las cosas.
Pero la evolución del planeta seguía y así la historia del dinero también seguía y aquí surge una brillante idea, respaldar y guardar los metales preciosos “El oro”, en un lugar de mucha confianza y crear una nueva forma de dinero la cual fue el papel, otorgándole valor según el oro que estaba guardado, ahora el oro sería mucho más facil de obtener y de transportar.
La evolución siguió dando un giro muy grande, y este giro fue el del papel al plástico, ahora el dinero se puede transportar en una simple tarjeta de plástico, si notamos las caracteristicas del dinero son las mismas, dar un valor.
Un punto que vale la pena destacar es que los cambios de la transformación que ha tenido el dinero han sido difíciles de aceptar por la sociedad, ya que algo nuevo siempre causa dudas y falta de confianza. Pero con el pasar del tiempo las personas se terminan acostumbrando y adaptando.
Ahora conociendo un poco acerca de que es el dinero y su uso, ¿podríamos hacer una pregunta, ¿cuál sería la reacción de la sociedad al ver una transformación del dinero, ahora del papel y del plástico al bitcoin? Un dinero virtual en la web, y mucho más allá de dinero una tecnología.
Así como fue difícil el cambio del dinero de trueques a metales así podría ser los bitcoins, pero uno de los grandes problemas es el mal concepto de bitcoins, no es un medio de pago, “es dinero” se trata de un símbolo que representa aceptación de todos en una red. y talvez la aceptación sea algo difícil porque se trata de algo abstracto a través de la red, pero por eso es necesario conocer un poco acerca de que es bitcoin.
¿Qué es bitcoin?
El dinero es únicamente la primera aplicación, pero más allá de esto Bitcoin es una tecnología, es una moneda es un activo y es una red internacional de pagos e intercambios completamente descentralizada. No se sustenta en los bancos. Tampoco en ningún gobierno. Como cualquier moneda en el mundo, bitcoin es dinero, dinero virtual con la diferencia de que no pertenece a ningún gobierno y este Fue creado por Satoshi nakamoto, quien dice haber resuelto el famoso problema de los generales bizantinos.
En el año 2008 creo una red descentralizada, una red estándar como un estándar basado en simples reglas matemáticas y a través de este sistema, bitcoin permite que una enorme red de computadoras pueda realizar transacciones a cualquier lugar del mundo con seguridad y con una mínima comisión o muchas veces hasta gratis y esto se hace simplemente acordando quien tiene el dinero en cada momento.
Bitcoin tiene un buen efecto en la población mundial, alrededor de 1 billón de personas cuentan con acceso a los sistemas bancarios y capacidades financieras internacionales, pero el otro lado de la moneda, 6 billones de personas en todo el mundo no tienen acceso a uno de estos sistemas. Estas personas solo con descargar una aplicación podrían formar parte de una economía internacional sin comisiones ni control gubernamental, por eso se dice que bitcoin es el dinero de la gente. La industria bancaria obtiene grandes beneficios a un alto precio por una labor que puede ser reemplazada inmediatamente por bitcoin casi gratis.
El funcionamiento de bitcoin es el siguiente, comprar una moneda conectándose a una casa de cambio entre las muchas existentes en la internet, se deposita el dinero y se utiliza ese dinero para comprar bitcoins a la equivalencia actual o una de las otras maneras de hacerlo es ofreciendo algún servicio a cambio de bitcoins, esos nos haría grandes emprendedores
Alguna de las ventajas que nos puede brindar bitcoins se puede hacer a través de la siguiente pregunta. ¿Qué pasaría si quieres emprender un negocio con alcance internacional?
Uno de los grandes problemas es el transportar el producto o servicio, en la actualidad esto se resolvió gracias al internet con lo que se puede entregar el producto. ¿Pero aun así existe un gran problema, como nos pagarían?
El dinero actual no fue pensado para la era digital, y esto es una de las ventajas de bitcoin el cual permite dividir un bitcoin en centésimas o hasta milésimas partes pudiendo vender servicios por milésimas de bitcoin a miles de personas, se podría obtener grandes ganancias y la ventaja de bitcoin es que permite realizar transacciones desde un punto a otro a través del mundo.
Uno de los principios y las más grandes ventajas de bitcoins es la neutralidad, no distingue entre organizaciones grandes o pequeñas, en neutral entre el emisor y el receptor y el valor de la transacción.
Se podría trabajar siendo un ciudadano y compararse a un gran banco multinacional en el sistema de finanzas. Bitcoin permite que se establezca igual y equidad entre sus usuarios.
Otra ventaja es que Innovar es gratis gracias a bitcoin. La importancia del bitcoin es tan grande, porque no es solo una moneda, también es una tecnología y esta es pensada para aquel porcentaje de la población que tiene dificultades para acceder a un sistema financiero (la gran mayoría) que, en pocas palabras, es beneficiar a la gran mayoría de la población existente en el mundo. La mayoría de la población no cuenta con acceso a sistemas financieros, y si lo cuenta, estos servicios son tan caros que difícilmente se pueden pagar.
Actualmente el mundo aun ignora un poco el poder que tiene bitcoin, es capaz de derribar las grandes empresas, las cuales cobran grandes tasas de interés haciendo así más difícil a la población acceder a ellos. Bitcoin podría afectar positivamente las vidas de la población, pero las organizaciones alrededor del mundo no les gustaría.
Algunas de las desventajas son desde su creación, su precio ha aumentado considerablemente, aunque probablemente este se estabilice con el tiempo.
Otra desventaja es el nivel de aceptación que encuentra actualmente, es la gran minoría ya que se usa mayormente para la adquisición de servicio informático.
Una desventaja mas es el anonimato, así como podría ser una ventaja, a la vez es deventaja ya que podría ser utilizado para fines no buenos o corruptos.
El manejo de una transacción en bitcoin es simple, no existen terceros y existe neutralidad. Una parte de la transacción ofrece el producto o servicio y la otra parte ofrece el pago a través del bitcoin, si ambos complacen los términos de la transacción entonces se hace. Bitcoin es neutral ante el emisor y el receptor y el valor de la transacción, no existe ningún particular contexto dentro del sistema de los participantes en la red, más allá de lo que dicta y provee la propia red y el protocolo.
La comisión depende solo del tamaño de la transacción en kilobytes, no de la cantidad de fondos a transferir.
Algunos sistemas bancarios se les llama libertadores, la gente viene a ellos y estos ayudan a muchas personas, dándoles apoyo financiero prestamos, etc. Pasado un tiempo estos sistemas adquiere poder, y el poder se vuelve en corrupción la cual busca beneficios propios del lado del sistema bancario lo que lo convierte en un sistema no libertador.
Ya hablamos acerca de una ventaja de bitcoin frente a la banca, por lo que también es importante conocer un poco de ella. Actualmente la gran mayoría de la sociedad no cuenta con acceso a sistemas financieros solo un pequeño porcentaje cuenta con este acceso.
Al iniciar emprendimiento se busca expandirse, pero con el apoyo que brinda la banca esto se hace muy costoso y difícil.
Algunos sistemas bancarios son libertadores, la gente viene a ellos y este libera y la saca de problemas, la banca fue pensado para eso para ayudar a las personas, pero pasado un tiempo estos sistemas adquiere poder, y el poder tiende a volverlos corruptos con lo que ya no es un sistema libertador.
Con el internet la sociedad se actualiza cada vez más, internet ha construido una gran fuerza liberadora, pero si observamos a la banca y el grado de inclusión económicas nos daremos cuenta que la banca en lugar de avanzar, está retrocediendo y la razón es que estas crean sus propias estructuras y se aíslan levantan fronteras nacionales y geográficas y crean diferencias en como se trata nuestro dinero y nuestro comercio. Lo que esto genera es separación y afecta a las personas, cada vez somos menos y menos libres en realizar transacciones alrededor del mundo. ¿Será que bitcoin puede cambiar esta realidad?
Si hablamos de la relación que se tiene con el cliente y la banca, podríamos hablar de una relación cliente servidor, donde obviamente el servidor tiene el control de todo, el cliente solo puede acceder a ciertas cosas que el servidor le permite, y si hablamos de privacidad, ¡pues no la hay!
Desde el momento en el que como usuario aceptas unirte a un sistema financiero, estas aceptados ser monitoreado por todo el gobierno, una gran red de vigilancia alrededor de todo el mundo. No puedes mover un centavo en una transacción sin que el gobierno lo sepa.
Los bitcoins son una gran herramienta, y en poco tiempo abarcarán una transformación del dinero, la población debe de prepararse y los sistemas financieros de igual manera, sin dudarlo los bitcoins traerán muchos beneficios, y lo mejor de todo ayudando a la parte de la población que mas lo necesita. Esto podría ser un cambio radical en la historia.
Con unas líneas de código, se puede vencer el actual sistema financiero, con unas cuantas líneas de código, el planeta dará un giro completo, lo que se creo no es una moneda es una reinvención de los sistemas de organización social que siempre han fallado, los sistemas no pudieron evolucionar al mismo ritmo que lo hace el mundo interconectado, pero estos serán reemplazados por nuevos sistemas basados en red, y arquitecturas como lo es bitcoin.
