When the original Silk Road discontinued operations in October 2013, online black markets quickly became a hot topic of discussion and debate all over the world. This discussion led to other online black markets other than Silk Road gaining more exposure as media outlets pointed out that even though the infamous Silk Road's legacy was halted, many sites are still operating and many sites are in the works.
Most of these articles and coverage were also written with a negative view of the online black markets and those wondering what the sites are like and what they do were left in the dark. The two most well-known online black markets that are in operation are Black Market Reloaded (http://bmreloaded.com) and Silk Road 2.0 (http://silkroad6ownowfk.onion) and the two most promising up-and-coming online black markets are Pandora (http://pandorajodqp5zrr.onion) and TorMarket (http://tormarkozaegyvco.onion). The sites are all unique, but they all offer everything a proper Tor Network black market should.
