Hello and welcome to the Darknet Market GUIDE – the Darknetmarkets bible for buyers.

The buyer’s Darknet Market or Darknet Market bible aims to be a complete guide that covers all steps that users have to take in order to buy securely from darknet markets. It orientates itself on OpSec best practices and, if exactly followed, will greatly minimize the risk of you getting caught. There never will be 100% security, but with the help of the buyer’s Darknet Market bible you can make it extremely hard and not worthwhile for law enforcement to catch you.

If you are a complete new user and have heard nothing or close to nothing about topic like Tails, Bitcoin and PGP, you will need several hours to go through this guide and follow the instructions. In fact you will probably not be able to buy from darknetmarkets tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. It takes time to get the secure setup, which is described in the Darknet Market bible, working. Once you finished the initial setup it will be pretty easy though. For future orders you just have to repeat the same steps for ordering on the secure setup that you already have.

However buying from Darknet Markets is not for everyone. If you have little computer experience and are not willing to invest much time, then you should stick to real life sources and stay away from the Darknet Markets. They will only get you into big legal trouble if you do not use them correctly.

If you are willing to learn and invest some time, then please read and follow every single step of the guide. If you run into problems please check if the Darknet Market bible or the sidebar of /r/DarknetMarketsNoobs already has that issue covered. If not feel free to make a post on this subreddit with a detailed description of your issues.

Some parts of this guide have gifs added to them which show how to do some of the steps. However these are just as additional information because software often changes and these gifs can quickly become outdated. Please read the guide first and the resources that are linked before blindly doing what is shown in the gif. If you get stuck somewhere you can watch the gifs which may clear things up for you.

The Darknet Market bible is only possible because a lot of awesome people dedicated countless hours of their free time to writing the tools you will use when following the guide. So please show your appreciation to them by making a donation to the torproject, Tails and/or GnuPG once in a while. If you have money to buy drugs, you also have money to reward the people who make it possible for you to order drugs safely.
