Advanced Search

I’ve seen Tor2door, Vice City, and even Asap marketplace, I don’t think any of them have an advanced search option like Abacus. It’s true they have something but theirs isn’t as detailed as this one:

PGP and 2FA 

In ‘security settings,’ you’ll find an interface where you can set a PGP key. Just enter your pin, set your PGP key, and enable two factor authentication. That’s all you have to do to make your account more secure.

Read this if you don’t know what Multisig is and how it can enhance your protection on darknet. 

If you already know, you know how to use it. 

Phishing Protection 

On the same ‘security settings’ page, you’ll find the phishing protection option which is a good way to save yourself from scammers. I’d suggest you should turn on this 3rd option.

XMPP/Jabber Available

XMPP and Jabber are instant messaging protocols that are widely used across some of the darknet markets. And guess what? Abacus marketplace is one of them. But as far as I know, Abacus only supports Jabbim.

Abacus Market: Payment Method

I like it when a darknet marketplace allows you to purchase items using Bitcoin and Monero both. Once you click on ‘wallets’ from the top nav bar, you’ll see multiple ways to add funds.

Here you can deposit funds either via QR code or using that address you’re seeing. Make sure you don’t send BTC to the XMR address. Otherwise, you won’t be able to recover your funds.

Managing Disputes

Abacus market has a Finalized Early and Escrow system for vendors. If you have opted for FE, you can’t do anything. In such cases, you have to chat with the vendor. It’s great if that helps but if doesn’t, you’ll lose money. 

If the funds are in Escrow, you can appeal within 7 days. If you don’t, your order will be auto finalized. I’d suggest you should opt for Escrow sellers only. At least, you’ll have some sense of security.

The Bottom Line

It’s true that Abacus market entered the dark web scene with shaky beginnings and accusations of ripping AlphaBay. Nonetheless, the market has grown to become one of the biggest marketplaces currently. It has grown to a very large size. One of the contributors to its size is the frequent closure of prominent forums like White House and ToRReZ

Abacus isn’t that perfect because it still uses the traditional market escrow system. But still, it offers a lot of flexibility in terms of browsing, and this puts it ahead of other markets. Another thing is that Abacus admins are always on the Dread Forum providing 24 hours customer service. 

Just make sure that you undertake all the necessary precautions. Abacus seems like a worthy darknet marketplace. The success of this marketplace is undeniable. And as time goes, the market may attract heat due to its heavy assortment of data-related listings. As we speak honestly, it’s one of the biggest marketplaces in operation.
