The Dark Web and Illegal Marketplaces

May 15, 2023 | Crime, Technology, Videos

The documentary “The Dark Web and Illegal Marketplaces” takes audiences on a journey into the shadows of the internet, where criminal activities thrive in anonymity. In episode three, entitled “Black Market Boom,” viewers are immersed in the world of dark web marketplaces – anonymous browsers used for transactions involving drugs, guns, counterfeit documents, and more.
The documentary sheds light on AlphaBay, the biggest of these marketplaces, where transactions worth over US$800,000 were carried out daily. Its founder, living a luxurious lifestyle in anonymity, was eventually caught by international law enforcement, and AlphaBay was shut down in 2017. Despite this, reports of its reappearance in August 2021 have surfaced, causing concern among experts. In an era where our dependence on online platforms grows day by day, “The Dark Web and Illegal Marketplaces” serves as a chilling reminder of the dangers that lurk just beneath the surface.
