A fairly old darknet market based in Russia. It is interesting to note that many Russian darknet markets exist for a very long time and are not subject to closure. Probably, the attention of Russian law enforcement agencies is focused on more significant issues than the fight against darknet markets. The Solaris market had a small audience due to being in the shadow of the Russian darknet mastodon Hydra market.

An interesting feature of the Solaris market is that the recruitment of suppliers does not occur all the time, but by application sessions. Such sessions take place periodically and during them potential suppliers can attach their questionnaire for consideration. After compiling the list of candidates, Solaris market administration carefully considers each application. After that, those who are lucky enough to pass the selection, join the Solaris community.
The design of Solaris market is made in light colors. The design can be called pleasing to the eye and not annoying. Interestingly, in order to view the ads and the list of suppliers, users do not need to register. You only need to register to place an order. In all other respects, the Solaris interface is very simple and not replete with interesting features.
We need to stop interrupting what people are interested in and be what people are interested in. People and DarkNet - that's our everything!”
There are about 3,000 ads on the Solaris market. In addition to drugs, which are in great abundance, some interesting categories are available to you. For example, the category "Work" is very common in the Russian segment of the darknet and almost never found in the markets we are used to. Here you can also find digital products as well as carding products.
In terms of security and payment methods, Solaris is a fairly standard marketplace. You have access to 2FA and PGP encryption. I would like to note the lack of the ability to use Monero (XMR) as a means of payment. For your safety, we recommend that you use bitcoin mixers to obfuscate transactions if you decide to use Solaris market services.
The Solaris Market is a fairly standard dark web marketplace. There are no interesting features here, as well as the ability to pay in Monero. Not surprisingly, after the closure of Hydra, the Solaris market began to grow rapidly. However, it has more serious competitors. So, if the market team does not start more active development, Solaris market may miss out on most of the Russian users.
Russian darknet markets have been on the rise lately. The king died and a fierce war began for his inheritance. Solaris Market is not yet a favorite in this race, as its functionality and the number of products placed are scarce. However, things may change in the future.
It is very interesting to watch the races among Russian darknet markets. New and old darknet markets compete to snatch some of the users and vendors from Hydra. Solaris, although it has been around for quite some time, unfortunately has not been developed all this time and seems to be stuck in the past.
