HugBunter is Offering $1K for a CGMC Archive

HugBunter is offering a $1,000 reward for a copy of some or all of the data from Cannabis Growers & Merchants Cooperative, a market that unexpectedly exited earlier this year. The CGMC data will be used to complete Recon, a darkweb search engine with information from almost every major darkweb marketplace.

Correction: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that CGMC had exit scammed when, in fact, no users of the market lost money. We acknowledged this in the post about CGMC’s exit but accidentally called the exit an exit scam.

HugBunter, the developer of Dread, has almost finished creating a replacement for the original darkweb search engine, Grams. His project, Recon, is nearly complete. He has imported vendor reviews, PGP keys, and other information from almost every major darkweb marketplace. Recon, in its current state, is missing vendor data from CGMC. He has been searching privately for a scrape of the market for months without success. Below is the message posted on Dread about the reward.

If anyone out there has any scrapes of CGMC that includes at minimum the following:

  • Vendor username
  • PGP Key
  • Total sales/feedback

I am offering a 1k bounty for this scrape as the data is required for archival purposes. Please get in touch and anyone who is willing to further fund this bounty it would be really appreciated as it may encourage anyone with access to academic archives of such data to come forward and supply this.

An extra $500 if the scrapes include the vendor’s feedback and is dated between 2018-2019.

This is one of the only established markets I am missing crucial data for and research has led me to believe there are no public archives available. I have high hopes that there are even phishers out there that this post can appeal to as you may have a static copy of the market you used for phishing purposes.

I held off on scraping them due to their implementation of my API for gathering this data, however their untimely closure meant that I was left without it.

I would also be interested to hear from anyone who has an AlphaBay scrape that is more up to date than that of Gwern’s archives, possibly a 2016/2017 scrape. I am aware of the existance of multiple academic scrapes for this, which I would not be able to access.

Before it is suggested, Michael McKenna and Sigi Goode’s 2017 AlphaBay scrape does not contain any relevant data.


If you have any if the information mentioned in his post, shoot him a message on Dread or send an email to darknetlive for details on contacting HugBunter through a more appropriate channel.

CGMC was a sudden shutdown, not an exit scam. They finalized every outstanding order and sent funds to the vendor's withdraw address. The market never took any coins.

They did not exit scam. They allowed all vendors to withdraw funds in escrow and gave people multiple days to save PGP keys and etc… before taking down the site.

No EXIT scam. the CGMC was run by amazing people.

CGMC never exit scammed. It was the best DM site with a great community. Is this Hugs new order from LE? Hope no one sells it to him or to DHS and FBI. If they do, hope its' a virus infected copy. Hugs the enemy within now.

The above post claiming to show that vendors are identified is fake, if you check the onion for NCIDE on dark.fail the listed vendors are not there.
