If you’re reading this guide, chances are you’ve already heard of the Dream Market, or other markets in the dark web-sphere that you can’t access on a regular web browser.
The Dream Market itself contains both legal and illegal products and services, so the best way to access the site isn’t by traditional means.
Luckily, you have found a step-by-step guide which will help walk you through the process.
As is required on the Dream Market (and on the dark web in general), you must follow a particular procedure for staying safe and anonymous.
Let’s dive into what you need to know.
Basic introduction into the dark web
For starters, you should understand that the internet consists of three layers: the regular internet which all of us use for all kinds of purposes, the deep web, which consists of everything that search engines cannot index, and the dark web.
The dark web is a particular subset of the deep webwhere the most interesting things online are found.
Such site are darknet markets that sell drugs, porn, credit card information, hacking sites, torrent sites, sites that sell firearms, sites that sell information and other sites related to political freedoms, revolution etc.
You need to be EXTRA cautious in the Dark Web as a lot of it is illegal and there are authorities watching.
In order to achieve anonymity and be hidden on the Dark Web,you should firstfollow a certain line of action items.
Instead, gaining access to the dark web requires a specific software which will be explained and presented furthermore in this guide.
The type of software you need for accessing the dark web
If you want to access the dark web, you need to use a particular program that protects your identity and is able to handle .onion URLs.
For accessing the Dream Market, in particular, you should use Tor.
The Onion Router, mainly known as “Tor,” is an entirely free network which empowers its users to access the internet with some anonymity.
Still, the Tor browser doesn’t guarantee you complete protection.
It just lowers the possibility that your identity and location would bedetected.
In order to become completely invisible on the dark web and on the Dream Market, you must follow the whole step-by-step guide below.
NOTE: Do not download The Tor Browser yet. The feds are tracking everyone who is new to downloading Tor and if you want to stay unharmed, download a VPN first.
How to access the Dream Market: Step-by-step guide (7 easy steps)
1. Install a VPN (Virtual Private Network)
No matter how safe the Tor browser sounds to you, we guarantee you it is not enough.
This comes from a couple of simple reasons—Tor works by adding an encryption layer at each entry and exit node throughout the network, beginning with you and ending at your desired destination.
This process begs the question, “What do you think will happen if the circle starts from the end?”
Code by code, decryption by decryption, it will eventually find its way back to you.
Therefore, as is already mentioned, Tor is not enough.
The other reason is that the US Department of Defense are the ones that actually created Tor in the first place, so if you don’t think that the government are in the best possible position to crack and exploit it then you are delusional.
The key to success, in this case, is a proper combination of VPN and Tor.
This practice creates a solid, unbreakable cover of anonymity and encryption, which allows users to stay completely hidden and untraceable.
A VPN (click here to find one) is a private network that’s extended across a public one, empowering users to exchange data across the network.
Furthermore, VPN is a mask for your IP address and a method for encrypting your internet traffic.
However, since it is not a browser, it cannot be used individually.
Wondering where this must-have software can be found? Just click the link below to find the best VPN provider that works for you, we found that this site is one of the only ones online to factor in dark web use on Tor when looking at the VPN’s
After choosing one, you should start downloading the program.
It doesn’t take more than four to five clicks.
After installing your VPN, you need to turn the program on and continue with the process.
So, even if Tor is compromised and the IP address is traced, it will lead back to the VPN IP address and not yours.
It looks like you are using a VPN for work purposes, just like a regular person doing regular, everyday activities.
With the the absence of a VPN, the trace would lead onlookers right to your address.
2. Download Tor
Now that you’ve installed your VPN,you can find the “Tor browser package” at the following link:
It is available for every operating system including Windows, Mac, Android, Ubuntu and Linux.
Furthermore, you are able to download Tor on Tails, for even better privacy.
After downloading it, you should install the Tor browser, which will take just a minute or two.
After completing this step, you can continue on your way to accessing the Dream Market (.onion URL).
3. Start the Tor browser
The most important part of this step is what you must do before you fire up the browser.
In order to prevent a DNS leakage exposing your information, all of the programs operating on your computer must be closed.
This includes Google Chrome, Skype, Google Drive, One Drive, etc.
Remember not to close your VPN. Now, you are one step closer to accessing the Dream Market.
The Tor browser itself is as easy to use as any other browser, with the same options.
Once you set it up and find the exact URL of the website you want to visit, you should just enter it into the address bar.
NOTE: Find the website addresses from trustworthy and well-known websites, like this one.
In this case, the legitimate Dream Market onion
URL is: http://lchudifyeqm4ldjj.onion/?ai=552713
4. Register on Dream Market
Since you have everything you need for accessing the Dream Market, and you have fired up The Onion Router, it’s time to enter the website.
If you want to review the capacity of the Dream Market and everything it has to offer, you must have an account.
If you already have one, you just need to log in. If you do not, you need to register.
Registering on the Dream Market is open to everyone and is totally free.
Even though you may think this is one of the easiest steps, it’s important to know that it is not.
In fact, this is one of the steps that can most likely reveal your identity, even if you are not aware it has the power to do that.
In order to prevent this kind of endangerment, you must follow the advice this guide is willing to offer.
When registering, the information you input on the site must not be related to you in any way.
For example, if you use the same username you have already used for some other website, it can possibly be connected and traced back to you.
To avoid this, you should create a username that’s completely new and unrelated to you by any capacity.
After entering a username, a password (make it a strong one), a withdraw pin (a code you need to use if you ever have to withdraw money from your account), and a captcha code (remember it is case sensitive), you can enter the Dream Market.
5. Now, you are IN!
Once you’ve entered the Dream Market, let’s see what you can find.
Next to the categories, you see a –Filter-.
This is the part of the website where you’re able to choose from which country you want the product to be shipped and where you want the product to be delivered.
You can also choose the category, view price details, sort by escrow, see information about the vendor, etc.
Below the category, you can find the exchange details.
This includes the value of different currencies that can be used on the Dream Market.
6. More about the categories
The basic categorization of Dream Market product offerings is as follows: Digital Goods, Drugs, Drugs Paraphernalia, Services and Other.
However, if you open the –Filter- section, you can see a more specific separation of each of the categories.
For example, the –Drugs- category is separated into Barbiturates, Benzos, Cannabis, Dissociatives, Ecstasy, Opioids, Prescription, etc.
After applying the filter, a list of product results will appear.
All of the products in the list include a name, a picture, price in Bitcoin (calculate the worth of the product in the exchange section), the number of successful transactions, and the average rating out of those transactions.
From the list the Dream Market offers, you can choose your desired product.
After clicking on it, the listing will expand to reveal more information.
Here you can see the price in EURO, the country the item is shipping from, where the product can be shipped to, as well as information about the escrow.
Now, if you still like the product, you can continue on your way to buying it.
Firstly, you need to see the offer. This can be found by simply clicking on the –view offer- area.
The offer commonly includes a product description with terms and conditions from the vendor.
The vendor for this product is –appleinc- and if I want to learn more about this them (it is recommended for you to inspect and review the vendor), you should just click on their name.
As you can see on the picture, this includes the username, whether or not the seller is a trusted one, the date they joined, etc.
If you scroll down, you will see a section where the terms and conditions are defined, also there is a section for the PGP key and one for leaving a message.
The PGP key is used for communicating with the vendor.
This key encrypts every message you send or receive from the vendor.
In order to stay safe in case the FBI seizes the Dream Market, you should definitely use the PGP key for communication, because it only allows you and the vendor to see the messages.
Be certain not to skip this part, as it is incredibly important that you check the quality of both the product and the vendor.
7. Ready to buy?
After you’ve completed all of the previous steps and you want to buy a product (or a couple of them), you should first choose the quantity from the Offer spot, and then add the product to the card.
Then you need to form an order and send it to the vendor.
If you want to find out more about buying from the Dream Market, you can read this guide, which will help you even more:
If you want to buy from the Dream Market (or generally any other market) you must have the appropriate currency—Bitcoin.
There are many different ways to get Bitcoin.
For example, you can buy some on the internet (using PayPal or a credit card) and since it’s completely illegal to do so, you mustn’t use Tor.
Everything you need to know about Bitcoin is available on:
The place where you store your Bitcoins is in a Bitcoin Wallet. It’s important to remember that stealing Bitcoins is difficult, but it can happen.
What is a dispute?
If your product doesn’t arrive on time or you get something other than your expected product, you can start the procedure for initiating a dispute.
However, you should contact your vendor first because it is possible they will resolve the problem.
But if theydon’t offer a solution, you may start a dispute and the Dream Market staff will offer assistance.
Now, all that’s left of this guide is to wish you luck in the process of accessing the dark web and the Dream Market.
Just make sure you never lose focus in what you’re trying to accomplish, and never forget that you’re using the dark web.
