In this blog, I will mostly discuss the following subjects, about which I will try to post regularly my research, thoughts, and discoveries.

  • Privacy
  • Darknet research (mostly dark markets and other illicit activities)
  • Cyber Security
  • System Administration
  • Crypto-Currencies (mostly laundering and anonymity features)
  • Programming


While this blog is discussing various dark markets or places/services conducting illegal operations, the targets of the articles are researchers and people curious to learn more about this. I am not encouraging you to use any of these services, nor am I endorsing any of them. You should abide by the laws of the countries you are living in. Please do not email me to ask for darknet market recommendations and such.
