For a list of deep web and dark net links and sites go to which lists many tor hidden services.

If you have Tor Browser already installed you can browse to the following hidden wikis:




So what are people planing to replace Silk Road?


On the Silk Road forums people are advertising a Silk Road 2.0 they want to make:



Others are talking about creating open source projects:


There is already an open source project started:


Another option would be a decentalized marketplace, there is already a project named BitWasp, but developement has stopped in 2012.



Most likely the next Silk Road wont be something decentralized, since there are some technical problems which would have to get solved first.

Currently the main problem in developing a Silk Road like marketplace is the Bitcoin integration, since even tho the Bitcoin-QT client has an API which supports account management, on a larger scale costomized code is needed to check for incoming payments etc.

If anyone knows any open source projects which could be used as a basis for a new silk road please leave a comment on this blog post.


Silk Road

After the arrest of Ross Ulbricht, aka Dread Pirate Roberts, what alternatives are there for users of the Silk Road marketplace?

Atlantis was the second largest Tor marketplace, but their owners decided to close the site and run away with the money about 2 weeks ago.

What is left are Black Market Reloaded (BMR) and Sheep Marketplace.

Black Market Reloaded has been around since about 2 years, so for most vendors and buyers they seem to be choice number one.

Sheep Marketplace will also get some traffic but it looks like the majority of vendors will use BMR.

And most likely many people are already working on new sites.

“Hidden Wiki Diaries: Walking Down the Silk Road”

The hidden wiki is a collection of websites that function on illegal services where the resources of such services are found on the deep web. You might know that most of the information posted online is only half of what is the truth! The internet is shrouded with ignorance to the fact that there is another world inside of it that lays hidden and cannot be accessed by the general audience.

‘Tor’ is a system database that has been formulated for maintaining online anonymity which is in fact connected with virtual tunnels all over the internet. The communication is managed by onion routing hence we have .onion URLS present on the deep web that offer an insight about the underworld activities. Tor is in fact very confidential as software consisting of a network of servers that can hide information and location of the clients and the administrators. By using Tor it becomes difficult for the authorities on the surface to list out their location and bust their illegal activities.

‘Tor’ is basically a project that has been designed to withstand external influence and interruption by ensuring the personal freedom of clients in the underworld and maintain basic civil rights to protect the integrity and privacy of certain companies and activities. This curbs internet censorship and avoids conflict arising out of extreme publicity. The Hidden Wiki therefore may be regarded as a website that consists of .onion URLS that offer hidden services which facilitate throughout the Tor network.

One such service that we can talk about in the deep web is ‘Silk Road’. The Hidden Wiki operates through excellent and professional pseudo domains which travel across Tor with a number of links stored in the wiki format. Most of the links are associated with the Silk Road that rests deep inside the bowels of the deep web. Silk Road is an underground highway for drug trade and expansion.

Silk Road

Anonymous to most of the surface audience, Silk Road has become famous for being another unobtainable route that leads to a market of drugs being sold. Numerous products are offered by this website allowing it to maintain its reputation for being an excellent source for outlawed drugs. User to user can select and enjoy the array of products that are sold via Silk Road. Speaking of drug trafficking, this site is the lord of all gems! It has gained prosperous years with the sale of drugs increasing in demand year after year. Because it has become so popular this information has leaked out somehow and reached the surface of the internet alarming radars all over the United States. Silk Road is primarily a target for the US government who place a lot of efforts to shut down its activities. They obviously have no clue about the location nor do they know who owns the Silk Road website. The Silk Road is safely incased inside the deep web and functions effectively through secret passageways, TOR networking and coded communication systems. This is a very typical gig for the websites situated in the Onion network.

Deep web has gained a lot of publicity lately and most Internet users seem to equate it with a pot of gold consisting of all the secrets now known to the common man! While this may be partly true, deep web is not necessarily as exciting as one may seem to believe. Thanks to the latest technology and top-of-the-line techniques, content that was once restricted is partly or even completely available to the common man.

What is Deep Web?

Now what exactly is deep web? Is it all the exciting information that is hidden from a common Internet user for reasons of security and confidentiality? Well, that may be partly correct. While deep web does contain some classified information and restricted content e.g. on black markets, mafia rings, private websites (password-protected sites) and the likes, it does not necessarily have to be interesting. Sometimes, the information contained in the ‘invisible’ web is simply there for other reasons; for example, webmasters may choose to hide their website’s programming details and technicalities from search engines, because such details are simply not interesting, and may have a detrimental impact on the site’s rankings.

Deep web is much bigger than the common, surface web we come across while conducting searches on Google and other search engines. In fact, it is considered as the biggest online source of structured data.

The Future of Deep Web

Over the years, researchers have devised a number of techniques to access content in the deep web. One of the popular techniques is known as virtual integration, where users are required to post queries which are then routed to the site in question. Another technique is known as surfacing, in which the submissions for each HTML form are pre-computed by Google and are added to the search engine index.

Google and other sites have started providing free access to scholarly papers and journals that used to be restricted in the past. Google Scholar, Google Book Search, Windows Live Academic etc., are some of the examples of such services that are providing free access to common web users.

More and more companies and publishers are entering into agreements with major search engines, which will make it possible for individuals to access content from centralized locations such as universities or other institutions. In the future, it is expected that part of the deep web would be accessible by fees or other means of authentication.


Deep web – a.k.a. underground Internet – is an immense universe of information that is hidden from the naked eye of the common Internet user. Information that exists in the deep web is mostly untraceable by search engines such as Google and popular browsers e.g. Chrome, Firefox etc., and special techniques or tactics may be needed to access the data. But what goes on in the underground Internet that makes it so enticing and mysterious? And is it possible to trace the activities of individuals and groups dealing within the deep web? Let us find out!

What Goes on in Deep Web?

Many people believe that the deep web holds some of the greatest secrets the Internet has to offer – and that is partly true. This deep, dark part of the Internet is a hub of illegal and dangerous activities, including drug dealing, guns, child pornography, mafia rings, sale of private jets at extremely competitive prices, and even assassins and hit men for hire. Some of the sites even provide links to grotesque scenes of child abuse! On this platform, trade of illegal goods takes place openly and freely, and one can get hold of virtually all kinds of drugs such as Ecstasy, heroin, ketamine, cocaine, MDMA etc, and get them delivered at their doorstep! What’s interesting is that all of these are totally untraceable by search engines.

Authorities have also expressed a concern regarding terrorists who are believed to be plotting and communicating through this medium without the fear of detection, making it all the more difficult for security forces to catch them. For example, there is a website that aims to provide Muslims with guidelines on carrying out Jihad against the Western world.

Is it Traceable?

The transactions that take place between individuals in the deep web are done by using Bitcoins, a digital form of currency that cannot be traced. Moreover, the software used by websites in deep web completely hides your identity as well as the identity of the other party you are dealing with by encrypting all your data and directing you through a network of various Internet protocol addresses.

It is extremely difficult for security forces to trace the activities going on within this part of the Internet without the use of latest techniques and technology. According to Internet security expert, John Carr, we have to look forward to the time when user authentication is at the core of the Internet, so that any such activities may be effectively traced and those responsible can be apprehended.

Deep Web is Exciting!

Not necessarily! Deep web is bigger than you can imagine, but not necessarily exciting as many people seem to believe. Information that cannot be searched easily comes under the deep web, but it could be any type of information – not just top secrets or highly confidential material! A webmaster may choose to hide information from search engines that is purely technical in nature so that such information does not affect the site’s rankings. So, there is nothing exciting about it, and it is quite a common thing that most websites do.

Websites that Conform Your Identity have Information that Comes Under Deep Web

Not true! Websites that confirm whether you are a human through Captcha or query boxes etc. are not necessarily hiding something; sites do this only to keep away automatic search bots. Once you enter the Captcha entry, you will access the information anyway, so there is nothing to hide, is there?

Deep Web is Immensely Huge!

Yes, that is true. The information on the internet is divided into several levels: the top level – known as the Common Web – consists of information that is accessible to everyone via search engines. Then comes the Surface Web, which includes websites and portals of colleges/universities, foreign social networks, MySQL databases and relatively ‘darker’ websites such as Reddit. Going further, we come across the Bergie Web, which consists of FTP servers, loaded web servers, Jailbait porn and locked results of Google search engine. Finally, after this level we approach the Deep Web, which requires proxy for access. Deep web includes information on celebrity scandals, sex tapes, VIP gossip, heavy jailbait porn and specific FTP servers etc.

The subsequent level is even deeper, requiring TOR for access having information on node transfers, AI theorists, Microsoft Data Secure Networks and the likes. Then comes the Charter Web, consisting of personal records, questionable materials, banned movies and books, hidden Wiki, and information on multi-billion dollar deals. Nearly 80% of the Internet is beyond the Charter Web. Most of the black market also comes under this level of deep web.

The levels following Charter Web require closed shell systems and ‘Polymeric Falcighol Derivation’ to access it, which is mostly carried out by government bodies having supercomputers. The deepest level of the Internet – i.e. the Marianas Web – requires quantum computation techniques, and what it contains is unknown to the most.
