CloudSEK’s digital risk monitoring platform XVigil has identified Nordic Market, a new dark web marketplace, that sells drugs such as Benzodiazepines, Alprazolam (Xanax), Zopiclone, Weed, and Hashish. The site, which is targeting Scandinavian countries, provides language support in English, Norwegian and Swedish. We also found that the site is hosted on a Microsoft IIS server.
Buying from the siteLike other dark web marketplaces:
- The buyer first browses the site and adds the products to their cart.
- At checkout, the site provides auto-generated Bitcoin and Monero addresses to make the payment.
- After the buyer makes the payment to the selected cryptocurrency address, the site waits for 1 confirmation in the blockchain.
- Only after this validation, the buyer is instructed to enter the delivery address, and the order is placed.
