alphabay market logo

Updated July 30th, 2022

AlphaBay is a legendary dark web marketplace which was by the FBI’s own words the biggest darknet marketplace to have ever existed. The platform was shutdown in 2017 by authorities during Operation Bayonet but they were unable to capture many of the staff members including its co-founder and security administrator DeSnake.

On 7th August 2021 DeSnake re-opened AlphaBay for business after having his identity verified by PGP, forum admins, ex-AlphaBay staff members (those not caught) and multiple security researchers.

AlphaBay is a principle-driven, vision oriented and community centered marketplace and Forum for all black market items. It boasts of mature management, unparalleled security, 24/7 professional & well-trained Staff. It is the marketplace which introduced most features you see today on other places such as sticky listing, featured listings, autoshops, monero as a payment, PGP-signed addresses, shared account access for vendors and so on.

Alphabay Unique Features

Apart from the usual autoshop, autodispatch listings, sticky and featured listings, ScamWatch, innovative features which it introduces on launch.

  1. AlphaGuard which protects wallets of both buyers and vendors in case of police raids on all servers by giving them opportunity to finish escrows, disputes and withdraw funds.
  2. Automated Dispute Resolver (ADR) system is a dispute resolution system. It is used between buyer and seller as they send propositions in case of disputes. For example replacement/reship, percentage refund, extending escrow and more all without a human moderator.
  3. Advanced Trust/Distrust System for buyers and vendors as well as review system for both as well.
  4. Default privacy for buyers makes all profiles private by default. When you make a purchase, only your purchase history will be shared to the vendor.

These and many more pave the way for this world class marketplace to reach the top once again.

Alphabay Decentralization Goal

DeSnake has started building the next generation decentralized marketplace network. This new version will allow markets and vendor shops from all around the world to join and form the future. The network will make it impossible to LE takedowns and it will be the long awaited progress in the darknet market scene.

We did some changes on the wallet page as attacker was requesting lots of addresses. We have resolved it many days ago and are going through tickets. If you have any amount missing send us a support ticket we will check and promptly credit.

Also no other marketplace has experience or credibility like us. we have the biggest choice of products as well as most secure escrow platform on the darknet.

Thank you.

Sorry to use the method of contact but since your site has no contact method I’d thought I’d drop a note here. After 5 attempts to register with AlphaBay I have decided to go elsewhere. If you want buyers to join, then stop making it so flaming impossible to register.

After putting in login and password, no page with text to decrypt for 2FA code… just get error at the top. It seems as if this has been going on for a good month or so.

Can anyone get in touch and pin an update to the top of this thread to let us know if AlphaBay is gone (again) or what?

Where do I do this… is it in the Tor browser somewhere? I’m not even getting the text to copy and decrypt. After I put in my user name and pasword I just get what looks like the banner of the AlphaBay page, but in the upper left it says “ERROR: ENCRYPT FAILED” and there’s the line to type in the 2fa Token, but I can’t get the token because there is not the PGP shit to decrypt to get it!

Anybody help me here. Haven’t been able to log in for about a month now and had placed an order but it’s never turned up so unable to check if it was shipped or canceled (I am assuming the latter). Spoken with somebody who says it’s working fine for them. My problem is when I put my password in the page just refreshes. I know it says it will refresh if password is incorrect but been using the same one. Also can’t register a new account. Please someone help me if possible. Cheers guys

Ok so I got reallllly paranoid reading recent reviews on here. Thinking AlphaBay probably in a process of exit scam or had their website hacked, so I tried it out yesterday for the first time made a small deposit from my cake wallet and then a withdrawal BOTH worked well so went ahead made a larger deposit and again no issue. However I think some people here may have used a phishing site. Why? Well I used one just a few minutes ago, since the onion page was offline. I got it off a very legit looking subreddit w/ 8k followers for alphabay (r/AlphaBayMarketDarknet) and some moderator there pinned “an Emergency link” alphabay522s***65ei7rwngr2wmi75jo54j2eid.online.

IDK Why all these guys have problems with the site… I ordered there since over 6 month and never dissapointed me…. Today i deposit some coins and it takes 1 hour to arrive… if you dont see your coins, dont use your mirror link. sometimes over the mirrior link the coins dont show up. Or try to buy something. Think its a bug. This site is 100% legit.

Since i can’t get on AlphaBay (no 2fa to decrypt, been trying for over a month), does anyone here know another market where “Monsanto” or “DopeKing USA” do business? I’ve checked several markets listed here and don’t see them, but they were both regulars on Alpha Bay. Thanks.

Alphabay scammed me don’t use them. I paid for some product and they acted like they never got the money when I showed them I had paid they sent some bullshit link to different scam site called delta shipping or something. It still shows to be in transit some 3 weeks later and now alphabay will not respond or anything. Save your money they are truly a scam as of September 2022.

Alright, can someone help me out here because I have been able to log in to AlphaBay for months but for the last month or so I’m just not getting the text for me to decrypt to get the 2fa-token after the login page. I do the “clock” page, then I get the page and put in my login and password with the Captcha, but then where I used to get a long string of PGP text to decrypt for a 2fa-token for the final check, now I just get a page that says “Enter 2-FA Token” and it has the field to input the decrypted 2fa-token, but the actual encoded text I need to copy and decrypt is NOT… Read more »
