A little more than a year old, ASAP Market is one of the biggest darknet market that features an extensive selection of listings categories. The market was originally called ASEAN Market but rebranded shortly after launch. ASAP claims to have developed systems for identifying scamming vendors and fake reviews, which are two of its cleverer aspects. They are willing to be flexible with vendor bonds, taking into consideration the value that vendors can potentially add to the market. The ASAP admins also have an active presence on the Dread forum, ready to engage with their users and help them to resolve problems. ASAP can run a little slow at times but only slightly more so than the average darknet market.

ASAP is one of the few markets that carries a larger Digital Good selection than drugs – especially once you include the Fraud section, which is quite large. Although included is the usual mishmash of guides and tutorials that can be found anywhere basically for free, they do carry some rare and hard-to-find digital items as well. A cool feature to be appreciated about ASAP is the fact that you can view the market without having to create an account and log in. This makes it easy to tell if the market is suitable before register. The vendors on ASAP may be less experienced than other markets, but they do cover territory worldwide, and some have hundreds of sales within that market alone.
ASAP Market carries close to 17,000 listings in all, which makes it one of the bigger markets currently out there. Listings are divided into the following categories: Stimulants, RCs, Cannabis & Hash, Drug Paraphernalia, Steroids, Barbiturates, Fraud, Weight Loss, Ecstasy, Prescription, Opioids, Counterfeits, Dissociatives, Digital Goods, Benzos, and Psychedelics. Of these categories, Digital Goods is the largest, followed by Fraud, Cannabis & Hash, and Stimulants. Unfortunately, the listing filters aren’t of much help when seeking an item, but the search box tends to work well enough.
ASAP Market accepts Bitcoin (BTC) and Monero (XMR) as methods of payment. The market utilizes the traditional central account wallet system, which means users must first deposit coins to cover an order before placing it. After an order is placed, funds are held by the market in escrow until the order is received and confirmed by the buyer. Some vendors are allowed FE-only privileges, meaning that all order placed through them must be Finalize Early orders.
ASAP Market Pros
- Round selection of well-populated listings categories.
- Employs 2-FA, automated systems for detecting vendor fraud.
- Market admins & staff work closely with users to solve problems.
ASAP Market Cons
- Slow page loading times.
- Does not force PGP encryption.
- Off-putting design, market can be difficult to navigate.
In all, ASAP is a somewhat clunky yet effective darknet market that is brimming with digital items and fraud-related products. Its vendors tend to be smaller and less-established, but this does not necessarily mean they are worse; simply less experienced. As a newer market, it has yet to truly establish itself in the community, though it remains a solid alternative when bigger markets are down.
