The Dark Side of the Deep Web

There are several websites claiming to offer some crazy goods and services through Tor:

  • Silk Road is dubbed the “Amazon.com of drugs.” Gawker published a story on the site. Through Bitcoin, a secure and anonymous digital currency that can be exchanged for real money, vendors are able to set up shop digitally and sell their wares through the U.S. Postal Service. (It’s important to note that Bitcoins are cash equivalents, so if someone rips you off you have no recourse.)

  • You can hire assassins through a service called “White Wolves.”
  • Child pornography is readily available through countless sites.
  • The Human Experiment details medical experiments performed on people against their will.
