Guide: Enabling XMPP Notifications on Nightmare Market


Nightmare Market, one of the new and increasingly popular darkweb markets of 2019, has a unique notification system for both buyers and vendors. Cryptonia has a similar system. The difference is that Nightmare Market runs their own XMPP server. This is their guide on how to set the notification system up.

You will need an account at Nightmare Market for this to work. Follow one of the links at the Nightmare Market links and mirrors page.

This guide was initially published (in a similar form) on Nightmare Market.

Download pidgin Instant messenger from the official website (Pidgin.im) and install it.

Create an account on the Nightmare Market jabber server

Click on “account” and then on “manage account.”

A window will open and now click on “Add…”

  • Protocol: XMPP
  • Username: your desired username
  • Domain: glrischc5ymwdcva.onion
  • Password: your password

Check “Remember Password” and “Create new account on this server”

(Since the jabber server is an .onion domain to create/connect to an account you need to configure pidgin to access using tor browser.)

Switch to the “Proxy” tab and input:

  1. ProxyType: tor/Privacy (SOCK5)
  2. Host: 127.0.0.1
  3. Port: 9150

And now click on Add (bottom right)

Pidgin will ask you again for the username and password you just entered into the configuration since you are registering a new account.

Now click the checkbox “Enable” to enable your account and get it online

Tip: Since the jabber server is a hidden service, the account creation may fail the first time. Try to enable and disable the account or to check again if you checked the “Create this new account on the server” box during the initial setup.

Now after creating the account is time to finally Enable and Configure jabber notification system.

Hover your mouse on your profile image and click on Alerts Settings or go to Nightmareocykhgs.onion/settingsalerts.

Paste your jabber ID in the blank space

Now you can chose which notification you wish to receive from the market place

This allows for all users—both buyers and sellers—to get status updates from the market without signing onto the market. This practice is recommended only on a secure operating system such as Tails or Whonix.
