New recent report by flashpoint concluded that the biggest Russian dark net market Hydra has made earning of more than $1.3 billions in 2020 alone.
Hydra market has grown from earning of a little more than $9 million in 2016 to now more than $1.3 billion, being the biggest dark net market that has ever existed in history.
Hydra market is a Russian only language dark net market that works only in Russia and in some of the former soviet territory. It allows seller to sell drugs in the form of “drop points”, meaning a vendor will use shippers to hide drugs in hiding spots around the city, then when a buyer purchase his listings he will get a few pictures and GPS coordinates of the hiding spot.
Hydra has grown greatly month by month during the global pandemic, and the only months where there was no growth, were the same month when the world has shut down and gone to a lock down.
Hydra now counts for more than 80% of all drug trade in dark net markets combined, making it by far the biggest dark net market, and not even close to its second rival White House Market.
