Nucleus Market has recently been facing downtime with many users left stranded on what to do next. However, some of them have already switched over to Dream Market which is proving to be just as good, if not better. Traders who were previously refugees on Nucleus have started doing business here to their own advantage.
Dream Market was established in 2013 and has been competing with other darknet sites for clientele, though not quite as successful in gaining the number one spot compared to its rivals. But with Nucleus now facing challenges it seems like things are about to change and the site may soon become a major contender in the darknet business. If statistics are anything to go by then Dream Market has outlasted many other similar portals available today, with the only possible contender being AlphaBay.
While most Nucleus vendors have successfully turned their sights onto Dream Market, other are still waiting on baited breath hoping that the site will be back on in a short while so they can collect their coins. Some have even posted optimistically saying Nucleus is only undergoing minor upgrades, and would soon be back online to reclaim its top position. So far, Nucleus admin has not yet released any statement concerning these particular developments, which is odd since in the past they used to give prompt responses immediately an emergency occurs.
Despite their generally positive online presence, Dream Market suffered a DDoS attack sometime last year resulting in major downtime. A few users speculate that is probably what’s happening to Nucleus right now. Particularly considering a similar attack had also affected them at the time Dream Market was down. Nevertheless, some spammers have taken advantage of people’s desperation to find a new darknet site and are sending infected links to unsuspecting users. This has developed a bad rep for Dream Market with some people saying that the spamming needs to stop, or else they won’t register with it but instead find another portal not marred by random spam messages and requests.
There are many different referral links that have been posted on darkweb forums, raising suspicion on their authenticity as well as safety standards. Based on their unregulated nature it’s even possible that these links have not been approved by Dream Market itself. The spam posts also make the site look less professional and more desperate to gain Nucleus refugees, further dwindling its ratings amongst darkweb users. Dream Market has not posted anything about this issue, making some people doubt their dedication towards acting as a Nucleus alternative.
This portal is generally an escrow marketplace supporting the Tor network. It supports the free market, allowingpeople to access products and services that are not readily available in different countries. It offers licit and illicit listings such as drugs and other related items. The site forbids weapons of mass destruction, poisons, and child pornography among others. As with most other darkweb marketplaces, bitcoin is the preferred currency of choice here when conducting transactions.
