It has not been the best of years for the darknet marketplace industry. This is only to be expected, as government officials all over the world are cracking down on this type of activity. Several operations are in place as of right now as well to shut down even more marketplaces. The following “casualties of war’ show how things are going in this controversial industry at this time.
It is rather interesting to note how so much for the darknet-related activity takes place in Europe these days. Whether it is mainland Europe or the United Kingdom, darknet vendors and clients can be found all over. In a recent crackdown taking place across Germany, Finland, the US, Brazil, and the Netherlands, law enforcement agents enforced the shutdown of the Valhalla darknet marketplace. While not a major player, it is a platform which began gaining more popularity in the past year and a half.
