The operators of the BlackBank darknet marketplace, which has suffered steady downtime recently after facing a number of attacks, have announced on their forum and elsewhere that they have added alternate .onion URLs as a temporary solution to help users access the market until the attacks can be defeated permanently.
DarknetMarkets.org has verified the authenticity of this message by confirming that it was signed by the official BlackBank PGP key. We recommend all users verify this and every important message themselves before doing anything as critical as using a new marketplace URL.
The official announcement is reprinted below in full.
—–BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE—–
We have opened additional hidden service onion URLs for access to the market. We will rotate the services depending on which ones are attacked. Please try different services if one isn’t working:
This will not mitigate the attacks and is only a temporary solution. We are still working on improving the service.
We will adjust the number of TOR servers based on the load.
Please always check the signature matches the profile on BlackBank:
If there are any questions or feedback, please feel free to contact us at any time or share in the forums.
