The darknet marketplaces are the most famous landmarks on the dark network as they immensely provide anonymity to all of its users. But this does not indicate that they lack the codes of conduct. Unlike any other clear web e-commerce website, the dark web markets also have some set of do’s and don’ts that the users (both the buyers and the vendors/sellers) have to abide by in order to run a successful trade. Although most of these dark markets allow the vendors to vend items such as drugs, softwares and fraud-based services, yet there are certain products or listings that they are strictly prohibited from buying and selling. Here we have carefully listed out some of the familiar dark web marketplaces and the list of items that they do not let the users trade on their platform.
