I sincerely hope that markets will provide assurance of the professionalism of sellers by hiding products professionally, because I have noticed a number of sellers who are not concerned about the safety of the buyer with all due respect to all sellers

I think reviews and "trusted vendor" status and escrow help. Having more ways of proving you will get a clean product, or at least more safety nets is always good.

boblishusWhat's the point of this? Law enforcement will still read everything they need to if they find the servers. The problem with encrypting data online is that encrypted data is transmitted to the server already encrypted. If you send unencrypted data to the server and encrypt it on the server, it means that anyone with physical access to the server can intercept the unencrypted packets.

HEISENBERGYou make good points. I don't know exactly how it works, but maybe Encryption on the client side first (before sending to server), then send the Encrypted data through the server. You're the pros tho. Would it still be ineffective?

HEISENBERGIt is one more step the l*w e*force*ent has to go thru to get u. I think it is worth it since it is free.

Why would proton be a worse choice regardless of how you use it? I don't understand that type of technology well so I try to listen to those that do. Is it still an issue regardless of how thorough the opsec is on your end?
idlewildProton cooperates with law enforcement agencies and makes no secret of the fact that it passes user data to them if they receive such a request. Who decided that this is a safe way to exchange messages?

idlewildLets assume you (Agent1) have amazing op-sec on your end. Agent1 encrypts/decrypts using only their own hardware and are the only one who has access to their private key. Agent1 is talking to someone (Agent2) who uses Proton. Agent2 has decided to use the auto-encrypt feature that Proton offers. Agent2 comes to the attenttion of LE for possible illegal dealings, so LE files a legal request with Proton for any information they have on Agent2. Proton complies and sends them all stored information they have. This includes the private encryption key and any stored emails. Using Agent2's private key they can now read the entire conversation Agent2 had with Agent1. In fact, since LE now has Agent2's private key, they can pose as Agent2 to try and build a case against Agent1.

This gets even worse if LE decides to simply seize Proton's servers, giving them access to anobody's (who used the auto-encrypt feature) private keys and conversations. This has happened with a couple marketplaces already (LE seized the marketplace and continued to run it as an exit scam both to steal money and get as much user information as possible).

Because Proton encourages users to practice poor op-sec (use their auto-encrypt feature) it is simply a good idea to avoid exchanging emails with people who use Proton accounts, even if you don't use it yourself.

boblishusEw! No! This is a bad idea. It requires a third party to hold your private key which means if that third party is ever breached (law enforcement action, black hat hackers, turncoat employee, etc.) anyone and everyone who used the service has their private key compromised. Always ALWAYS encrypt your communications yourself on your own hardware and avoid anybody who does not (because if they get compromised, your communications with them are also compromised.

My other:
trusted buyers, i mean finding a way to beware of some mistery customers to step in the market just to know how all the things work and help the police around to work more easy figuring out where go. Customers need some kind of reference to apply before sign in BB, only limited orders for months and know how they move thru forums, groups, if interested in something or whatever..could not see all the stuff available the first day.
Great the rules against the poisons, fentalyn, guns and so on. List updated of scammers.
A market with a safe code interested to the quality and anonymous.
All could be always better in future, sure nothing is perfect but here must be not the street on web but a friendly place where everyone can feel good.
BB is on the right way!
Sorry for this long message i hope not delirant.. ;-)

You offered “constant supply” as an option, but (and this may just be me being particular about the verbiage used) the more appropriate phrasing should be “consistent supply,” as it suggests uniform availability and quality.

As for “other,” I feel that, so long as it stays within legal boundaries, as much oversight re both vendors and clients alike should be prioritized. This was touched on by a number of other respondents. Referrals/someone vouching is good, but a video qualifier (ex: username & the date written down along with a phrase requested by an admin displayed in a video clip of the applicant using his/her drug(s) of choice. On the vendor side, a policy of zero tolerance for false/inaccurate product descriptions. Further, though this is likely highly dependent on the specific vendor, a means by which to order certain items in bulk qtys, rather than multipliers of small qty offerings.

Another “other” for me is inclusion of additional vetted vendors domestic to the US, ideally with the potential for regionalized representation. Additionally, I’d like to see current lab test (GCMS) results for the products on offer by any vendor.

Lastly, and this is likely already posted somewhere though I’ve yet to locate it, a list of requirements a user must meet in order to be considered for permission to become a vendor.

The last thing I’ll say is an opinion and it’s this: I have immense respect for this site and the principles on which it was founded. Could some simple things be tweaked to enhance the client experience? Sure. Merely the inclusion of a third party holding transaction payment in escrow until receipt of and satisfaction with the delivered materials is outstanding. Keep up the excellent work! Keep striving to improve and empower the clientele to affect positive change. What you’re doing is impressive, and I’m excited to see what the future holds!

I mean other than the obvious which has been mentioned.
"trusted sellers" should have labs somehow done on their products when applicable.
No fent or especially the analogs. Not every exchange has to be for war crime chemicals.
More control over message deletion.
Some way to save dealers product inventory to a link on the main navbar. I can't believe how few markets make repeat business at few sellers easy.

I think one that's not up there is constant testing of product. People whom buy want to know what exactly they're getting.
