What is Database Market?
Database Market is one of the larger card shop sites on the darknet. It operates since relatively recently and offers credit cards of all brands (Amex, Visa, Mastercard, Diner’s Club). It also offers the following products and services:
- Scanning photo documents (USA / Worldmix) DL / ID / PASSPORT / SSN CARD / TAX FORMS / APPLICATION
- Full info (USA / Worldmix)
- Bank Accounts (USA / Worldmix)
- Air miles (US / Canada / EU)
- Shopping Sites (US / EU)
- Payment systems (US / EU)
While Database usually does not offer huge dumps as other sites sometimes do, it has a vast amount of different sellers. This not only makes it one of the largest credit card market sites there is, but also ensures good prices since the competition is fierce: Due to the large number of vendors they are in constant competition to offer the best price – thus making Database Market one of the cheapest markets for credit card data on the darknet.
If you are looking for datasets with complete information including the PIN (“fullz”), we recommend that you choose the purchase carefully: These datasets usually not only contain the full name of the cardholder but also the zip code and sometimes full address. This means you can search for zip codes correlated to high income – thus ensuring that the limits of the card will be high.
On the other hand, you should always be careful what vendors to trust – like on all darknet market sites. There are certain red flags that indicate that you should be very careful or outright avoid a vendor: If it is a new account with few or no previous sales but also if an offer seems too good to be true. You should always compare the prices with similar offers and never buy from vendors that sell their data outrageously cheap, as it is most likely a scam.
Same as with all darknet sites the usual security recommendations apply. Most importantly: stay anonymous. Use the TOR browser only and don’t use the TOR browser for any regular (non-darknet) browsing.
Ideally, you have a dedicated system or at least a dedicated VM for all your darknet activities. Keep your darknet PGP keys and other credentials limited to that system only, do not mix it with any activities that would expose your identity.
Treat your dedicated system like a work-system: Only install the software necessary for your operations do not install anything for entertainment or other purposes. Subsequently, resist the urge to browse Twitter, Reddit or any other social media sites while you have downtime. For this always use your regular system.
For additional system security, we recommend you run a secure operating system like Tails or Whonix on your dedicated system for darknet activities. We also recommend using a VPN as an additional security measure since TOR will only anonymize your browsing sessions but not other traffic.
Especially when using any public WiFi hotspots you should always use a VPN when accessing the Internet since you don’t know whether the access point is compromised. A VPN ensures that all of your traffic, no matter what application, will always be strongly encrypted when passing the access point, this protecting yourself not only from eavesdropping but also possible identity theft.
Database Market Summary
If you are looking for quick access to a small to medium amount of credit card datasets, Database should be one of your go-to sites. Because it has more vendors than most other sites, it is – due to the competition – one of the cheapest markets around. With the additional availability of full datasets including PINs, this is one of the few sites that offer credit card data that allows you to use a card writer to put the data on a blank card and then using it to withdraw cash at an ATM. As always, when visiting any darknet market make sure to only use trusted links, such as the onion link for Database Market on the top.
