Abacus Market - Darknet Market Review

Abacus Market Logo

It's not often a darknet market changes its name, Abacus Market found itself needing to do just that soon after it opened in mid 2021. The market originally opened as Alphabet Market before swiftly changing its named to Abacus Market just weeks later due to the re-emergence of AlphaBay, leading to the two markets sounding confusing similar. This was not entirely a coincidence since Abacus Market was conceived as somewhat of a spiritual successor to AlphaBay, having a very similar layout at launch. It has developed significantly since this time however and ultimately outlived the reborn AlphaBay which disappeared in early 2023. It has since become of the world's largest darknet markets.

Abacus Market

Since Abacus Market was based on the original AlphaBay layout, it will be feel very familiar to those who have previously used AlphaBay, Empire Market or World Market, all of which used a very similar interface. However, Abacus has evolved quite a lot since these older markets and feels considerably more modern. What's more, there's also an active forum with a community of many thousands of users; perfect if you're looking to discuss products and vendors before committing to a purchase. There's an ample selection of information about each product and conducting a search is easy thanks to the array of advanced search options available.

Bitcoin and Monero are both accepted as payment methods (we recommend Monero for the improved security and lower transaction fees / times). Escrow protection of up to 14 days is available for most listings, except those with Finalize Early (FE) status, but these represent only a very small minority of the most trusted vendors. There's a robust dispute system in place which will see moderators intervene in the event that an agreement can reached between both the vendor and buyer should there be any issue with any order.

Final Thoughts on Abacus Market

The old saying 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' certainly applies to Abacus Market, since it does everything that AlphaBay did well, whilst developing things further to bring it up to modern darknet market standards. The customization options for dark mode and light mode will no doubt be welcomed by many users and overall the experience offered is a pleasant one. It's clear to see why Abacus Market has achieved the success it has to date.
