In March 2019, Dream Market announced that the market would be shutting down. A partner company would be launching a market as a Dream replacement. After a couple of silent months, many suspected no such partner company even existed. Now, in early July, Dream Market’s replacement–SamSara Market–has launched. SamSara is the new Dream Market.
The new site is nearly identical to the original Dream Market. It comes with two noticeable changes: a new logo and a new icon for the shopping cart button. Other changes exist as well but the new market is surprisingly similar to the old Dream Market. One user messaged this author and claimed to have seen this user interface once when logging into Dream Market prior to the Dream Market shutdown several months ago. If anyone else can confirm such a sighting, please let me know.samsaraccrn2jmin.onion
