Darknet Market leader Agora goes offline over TOR vulnerabilities concerns

Darknet Market leader Agora has suspended its activity due to increasing concerns over vulnerabilities in Tor browser. Agora official posted a message to their users on Reddit and PasteBin, announcing that Agora will halt all its operations over Vulnerabilities concerns of Tor browser. We all know,it's safer to surf Darknet Market through Tor browser coz no one can get a track of you. Most of the darknet market products and services are illegal.

Agora administrators announce on Reddit, " Recently research had come that shed some light on vulnerabilities in Tor Hidden Services protocol which could help to deanonymize server locations. 
They further said that, "We have discovered some suspicious activity around our servers which led us to believe that some of the attacks described in the research could be going on and we decided to move servers once again, however this is only a temporary solution.Now, while we don't have a solution ready it would be unsafe to stay our users victimisation of the service, since they'd be in danger. Thus, and to our great sadness we have to take the market offline , till we are able to develop an improved resolution.
The other Darknet markets has additionally made announcements to their users, urging them to not worry as a result of they'd already tackled the Tor vulnerabilities and their servers are pretty secured.

The value of bitcoins has declined since Agora has gone offlineand plenty of users face problems with delayed payments. These are the payments that Darknet markets sometimes held in written agreement till the deals are completed. Users are slowelys obtaining the payments back, it'll take around 24 to 48 hours.

Many users show their support and appreciation to Agora team on Reddit for taking the choice to go offline. They did not risk the protection of their servers and users privacy for profits that are a few things terribly rare. There's no specific time given by Agora can begin its operations once morehowever there are several different darknet sites which is able to fill the gap left the Agora. however it's pretty unlikely to assume that they're going to not come within the darknet market.
Previously FBI has taken down a Darknet Market of comparable size named Silkroad back in 2013identical year Agora entered the Market. These markets deal all type of things and services together with Drugs, Weapons, Stolen Credit Cards, Hacking passwords services, even physics (stolen too).
