What is Cocorico Market?
Cocorico is a French darknet market that sells a variety of items but is mostly focused on drugs and medications. While the site is French by default, you can switch to an English version. But note that not neccesarily all content will be translated, but market entries are which is obviously the most important thing.
A nice feature of Cocorico market is that you don’t need to create an account to access the market. So if you want to check out and browse the various product offerings first, you can do so without the hassle of having to sign up first. Obviously, you need to register before buying anything. Currently Cocorico accepts Bitcoin and Monero.
Cocorico market, like most other darknet markets, employs an escrow system for secure purchases. When you place an order the corresponding amount is immediately deducted from your Cocorico wallet and remains locked in the market wallet. When you have received the order you must come back to the market, go in your orders history to finalize the sale and leave a feedback to the seller. If you don’t receive your order, Cocorico staff will refund you from the escrow account after the case has been investigated.
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.
Cocorico market is a great place if you are looking for drugs and medications of all kinds. While you can also find some other digital products such as software and hacks, as well as credit cards and other financial information, most entries are in the drug selection. Also a good site to visit if you just want to browse the market but not neccessarily buy anything, since you can access the market without having to create an account. As always, when visiting any darknet vendor shop make sure to only use trusted links, such as the onion link for Cocorico Market on the top.
