What is Daeva Market?
Daeva Market is a dark web market themed after the famous Hydra Market. This market is in the english language but boasts a very familar layout. It charges 0 to 3% commission per sale depending on the vendor subscription. If the market site is up, you can find the onion link for Daeva Market to the right of this article.
The maximum monthly rental fee a vendor could pay is $300 per month, fees are calculated based on previous month sales volume plus selling price. The monthly fee will always be the cheaper alternative to item based commission. New vendors must pay a $250 vendor fee.
Like with all darknet market sites the standard security recommendations apply. First and foremost, 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.
Never communicate with vendors or buyers outside of Empire Market or you lose the security of the escrow system and dispute policy. Make sure that you encrypt all your communication, no matter how trivial it is. Not only decreases this your overall risk but also helps to establish a habit of it.
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. As always, when visiting any darknet market make sure to only use trusted links, such as the onion link for Daeva Market on the top right.
