HANSA Market is one of the newer Darknet Markets, yet they have quickly shot straight to the top in popularity and not without reason. After our team reviewed this website pixel by pixel and researched what darknet market enthusiasts had to say about it we quickly learned why HANSA is on the fast track to becoming one of the main contenders. HANSA Market isn’t your typical “run of the mill” marketplace. The entire website offers a plethora of reasons that touts its quick success. HANSA Market offers a multitude of strong protection to safe guard vendors, buyers and their bitcoins, even going as far to claim they are Exit Scam proof as long as everyone follows the site rules. HANSA Market also goes the extra mile to provide incredible information, tutorials and guides on how their entire market works, how to use PGP encryption, how to use bitcoin and more. So here is our honest and ultimate review on the new popular darknet market known as HANSA Market.
HANSA Market Review | Listings: 3.5
HANSA Market currently has a little more than 13,000 listings at the time of this review. While it may be over shadowed by AlphaBay’s 100,000+ listings Hansa’s listing number has more than tripled since last November. At that current rate the percentage of listings is growing well faster than many other contenders in the darknet market scene and will most not show signs of slowing down anytime soon. While the low number of listings may turn off some shoppers and vendors alike, it’s that other incredible features that make the Hansa Market.
HANSA Market Review | Security: 5
We rate HANSA Market a PERFECT score in terms of overall security. This is one of those things that make HANSA Market such a eye catcher for those looking to check something different than the current Darknet Market kings. The list of security features Hansa has put in place is not only impressive, it’s the foundation on which the entire site is built.
“AFTER RECENT EXIT SCAMS OF VARIOUS MARKETPLACES (E.G. EVOLUTION, BLACKBANK) WE WANTED TO CREATE A MARKET WHERE IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR EITHER ADMINS OR VENDORS TO RUN AWAY WITH YOUR FUNDS.”
This little snippet of information is directly from the HANSA Market admins themselves and can be found on their about us section. But how exactly can a Darknet Market become exit scam proof?
Hansa Market further explains in their about section about their exit scam proofing setup.
“Most markets operate the same: Blindly deposit money into your account, wait for confirmations and then make the purchase. Note that the Bitcoin price might have changed while you were waiting for your deposit to arrive and you have to deposit more Bitcoins and wait even longer. We approached this a little different. On HANSA you do not have to deposit Bitcoins before your purchase. Every order is simply a Bitcoin transaction in itself.
In the event of an absolute worst case scenario (hack, LE involvement) which makes it impossible for us to come back online, we will release the private key of our address that is being used for every vendor-(-buyer)-HANSA multisig wallet.
In case nobody of our team is able to access the site for 30 days a dead man switch will auto sign all open transactions.” – HANSA Market
While this is by far the best security feature it is far from the only one. Here is a short list of the other various security features HANSA Market offers to protect their users.
- Multi-Signature Escrow
- No FE (finalize early)
- Advanced Dispute System
- Trusted Vendor Badges
- Multi-Sig Wallets
- Tiered Vendor Deposits
As you can see the admins behind HANSA Market take security as a highest priority. Hansa Market has even made it clear that they absolutely do not allow Finalizing Early and encourage users to report any vendors requesting an FE. FE has become a popular option on other markets and many vendors refuse to go any other route due to issues with darknet markets pulling major exit scams and vanishing with all the bitcoin stored in escrow. Though with the Multi-Sig Escrow system exit scams are not a concern for users of the HANSA Market.
HANSA Market Review | Features and Design: 5
Another perfect score for the HANSA Market lies within the overall design, functionality and features of their website. HANSA Market has a professional design and is by far one of the easiest darknet markets to navigate, even for the most novice of users. This, along with their security are two major priorities the developers had when building the Hansa Market. The top bar of the site has some of the most important tabs including a direct link to their forum while the categories page is simplified and works like traditional darknet sites. Another key feature that stuck out was how impressive the search function works.
Browsing the HANSA Market is incredibly easy, fast and visually striking. As soon as you select any category you will be greeted with a stunning layout consisting of a column of vendors along with all the vital information a savvy shopper would want. Trusted level, bulk prices, experience rating and more are available without the need to click directly on the listing itself.
There a two snippets of information available about the vendors of HANSA Market. The Trusted badge and the experience level. The experience level are given to both vendors and seller in order to instill additional trust for each side. Here is how HANSA Market’s Level and Experience System works according to their support section.
“HANSA’s Level and Experience System
You get awarded experience points (EXP) for certain market events like finalized orders, feedback, forum upvotes and user referrals. The higher your EXP the higher your level. Vendors benefit from a higher level in the form of a higher reputation and lower market fees and buyers also gain reputation. In the future we are planning on allowing vendors to set up listings that only buyers with a certain level can buy.” – Hansa Market Support Section
Some of the other reasons behind HANSA Market’s perfect score is their extremely in depth support section feature professionally written tutorials explaining bitcoin, bitblenders, site features and more! Well done HANSA Market.
