Bohemia Market is a modern marketplace designed to break away from traditional approaches of typical dark web platforms. The site boasts a host of different buyer and vendor features, with both Bitcoin and Monero integration being a critical selling point for the market.
The market recently launched its new design and development following a two year long process. This lengthy time frame was rationalized by its admin as an outcome of the fact that the darknet site was built from the ground up without employing any third party platform code.

An October 10 announcement by Bohemia admin on the Dread forum painted the picture of a high potential market. In his statement, he noted that the platform and user base was increasing at a higher rate than ever imagined – the admin attributed this success to their internal referral system as user s kept spreading word about the site.
In addition, the admin pointed out that the market had secured a recent affiliation with DarkNetStats, and that Bohemia would be revealing some upcoming promotions and giveaways.
To begin using Bohemia Market, you will need to access the platform using either the main onion address or an alternative link (provided at the end of this guide) and create an account.
How to Buy
Bohemia employs a smart cart system which gives the buyer full flexibility in customizing their quantity, shipping & payment methods on the go.
Both Bitcoin and Monero are accepted at the marketplace. As a prospective user, it’s important to ensure that your account is topped up with the amount required to execute any orders you may wish to place.
Notably, sellers on the market have different payment preferences – some vendors may only accept Bitcoin while others have integrated Monero. Be sure to check which coins are accepted on any products of interest prior to making a deposit.
Physical products will generally have a field underneath which allows you to submit details such as your home address. While there is a PGP option built into the market, Bohemia admin highly suggests that users disable it, and instead use your own PGP key to encrypt the sensitive information you must share with the vendor.
In case you have a coupon code giving you a certain discount on any product, you may redeem it at checkout in the appropriate field. The necessary amount will be automatically deducted upon entry of code.
Point to remember, any changes made to a quantity, shopping method, adding coupon code or even adding a PGP encrypted message to the order must result in pressing the “Update” button, or your progress will be lost. The market advises that this is extremely important as any alteration must be followed by the “Update” button as to make the changes persist.
How to Sell
The process of becoming a seller on Bohemia is pretty simple. You can find the “Become A Merchant” button on the right-hand side of the top toolbar of the platform (See below).

To do this, ensure that you have attached your PGP key correctly to your account, and that it matches the records which can be verified on the Recon directory. Upon verification you will get the vendor role on Bohemia free of charge.
Using Pretty Good Privacy (PGP)
PGP works this way: two keys are used to transmit information from point A to B. The first key, the public key, is used to encrypt the message. The second key is referred to as the private key as it is used to decrypt the message.
In order to communicate, a user sends the public key to all their intended message recipients. This would enable them to lock sensitive information that they may want to transmit to the user.
Finally, on receiving encrypted messages, a user would simply apply their private key in unlocking messages sent by their contacts.
Bohemia Market recommends that all users encrypt all their communications using the PGP protocol. Although the market’s user records are stored and hashed using complex algorithms, one should always endeavour to be safe than sorry.
When attaching sensitive information to an order for a merchant to see, such as your physical address, be sure to encrypt the contents by either using your PGP tool of choice along with your chosen merchants PGP key, or simply ensure that the “Encrypt Message” checkbox remains selected when placing your order, and Bohemia will conveniently encrypt your data using the merchants registered PGP key. This can also be achieved when sending private messages to other users via the platform.

As a general rule, you should never share your private key with anybody.
Bohemia operates a feedback system on both vendor, and buyer profiles. IT provides buyers with the opportunity to leave feedback for purchases made, and for merchants to also leave feedback for any orders they’ve previously executed.
Once an order has been fulfilled and marked as finalized, both buyer and merchant parties will be presented with the option to leave feedback from within the order details page.
Buyers can rate the products quality, overall logistics, and merchant communication for the purchase in question via the use of our star ratings feature, along with a brief snippet of text detailing their experience or discrepancies.
Aside from the above, the buyer can also rate their purchase as “Positive”, “Neutral” or “Negative”. This rating will attribute to the product and merchants feedback score and overall level on the platform.
Each buyer rating can be found when viewing a product page, and via the corresponding merchant profile. Although publicly viewable by any member on the platform, usernames are censored to protect buyers and their rights to customer confidentiality.
It’s important to leave feedback on any orders placed, as it can and will be used by other members of the community to vet a potential vendor that they are considering to purchase from.
Likewise, merchants also have the ability to provide feedback for buyers which have purchased from their store. This will provide merchants the ability to voice any goo word / concerns and positive / negative comments towards a buyer to give other merchants and users an insight as to how they conduct themselves when purchasing.
Bohemia implements an affiliate program that’s been designed to reward those who invite users to the dark web site prior to their registration.
For each purchase made by the user you have invited through your referral link, you will receive 25% of the platforms percentage deduction for those purchases. For example, if the platform percentage deduction is 4 percent, and the item purchased by the referred user has a base cost of $100 – you will effectively receive 25 percent of that 4 percent cut.
These funds will automatically be credited to your balance and can either be withdrawn or used as a spendable balance.
Your personal referral invitation link can be found in the “User CP” alongside the associated statistics, as well as inside the “Affiliate Program” widget, located at the bottom left hand side of the homepage.
