Even though the darknet doesn’t have the best of reputations, its popularity continues to rise over time. That is not entirely surprising, as the allure of getting rich quick attracts people from all strides of life. One noteworthy trend is how the number of “job openings” found on the darknet is increasing. That is very peculiar, as its long-term impact remains unclear.
One has to keep in mind the darknet is only a small part of the deep web, the part of the internet which is not indexed by traditional search engines. On paper, the deep web is not illegal by any means, as it provides access to traditional services and some more exotic ones without turning to illegal activities. The darknet, on the other hand, is where most of the illegal activity takes place through so-called marketplaces.
