US Treasury Sanctions Genesis Market
Seizure image of Genesis Market
According to reports by various law enforcement agencies, 17 countries participated in the multinational operation dupped "Operation Cookie Monster." Established in March 2018, Genesis is an invite-only store that sells packages of stolen account access credentials, simply referred to as 'bots' by the market's admins.
The application for the warrant to seize the market's domains revealed that the FBI launched investigations into Genesis Market in August 2018. In the course of the operation, the FBI investigators purchased 115 bots from the market and paid in Bitcoin.
Tracing the bitcoin eventually led the investigators to hosting services providers located in the US that provided hosting services to genesis.market. Information acquired from the hosting providers led the investigators to the market's backend server.

On December 9, 2020, the investigators obtained a "forensic image" of the server. The information acquired by the agents revealed that at the time the market had approximately 33,000 users, approximately 900,000 bots for sale, and that more than $4 million in crypto had been deposited into the market by its users.
The investigators also gained access to users' information such as usernames, passwords, email addresses, bitcoin addresses, and purchase history.
Shortly after the investigators had acquired the information, Genesis admins changed hosting providers and moved their servers out of the US.
The investigators once again gained access to the database associated with the markets server in May 2022. Information from the server revealed that the market's users had grown to 59,000 users, who had deposited more than $8 million in crypto, and that 1.5 million bots had been put up for sale.
On April 4, 2023, in an internationally coordinated operation, the investigators seized and took offline 11 clearnet domains associated with the market. The market's onion domain is still online.
At the same time law enforcement agencies in 17 countries executed search warrants at properties associated with the market's most 'prolific' users, identified from information acquired from the market's servers. Approximately 208 properties were searched resulting in the arrest of 119 suspects.
The U.S. Department of the Treasurys Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) believes Genesis Market admins are located in Russia. The sanction against the market is attributed to the market's role in attacks by the market's users on the US financial sector, critical infrastructure, and federal, state, and local government agencies.
The war is fierce but we must be resilient, we are not the bad guys.. we're just trying to make a living, you know nature depends on itself.. everyone is a prey and everyone is a predator, what differs is how we "eat" each other
I want to be prosecuted by the Angelic Interpol or another country because in Poland there is no lawfulness of doctors judges and prosecutors do not want to punish right away I will have a lawyer from Germany because the doctors want to do me permanent damage to my health I am taking schizophrenia medication
Sanctions lol. Genesis remains resilient. The community has already gathered itself in a newer safer hidden service address. Good luck LEA.

AYO HOL UP HOL UP WHY IS THERE A DILDO ON THE RIGHT WTF? AN BESIDE HIS COFFEE THAT FUCKING NASTY YO
dumbass made me actually look to see if there was a dildo there or not hahaha ded
Should have hit up Minh over there at ChipMixer, I’m sure he could have accommodated their millions of proceeds in his big crock of crypto billions. Looks like the admins got wise to the first breach and took off, those savory high speed US servers were apparently worth the price in the beginning. Wonder how they got breached the second time, 2 years would have been a long time just to leave a back door swinging in the breeze. Wouldn’t be surprising to see another image pop up on the clear net in the near future. That guy with the sack on his head in the take down banner is pretty intimidating though…
If there in Russia your not getting them. But good job feds another win for the home team. Sam can I get a job with you?
Totally agree. Go luck...
The war against us is fierce but we have to be resilient regardless. whomever has the .onion url for genesis market, kindly share.
How can I participate guys I don't understand anything🤔🙃
No one is safe, shit if they can locate the users than one day even when u retire and you stopped slanging they seize that server, they gon have that ass and they gone come for it too. Have u eating sloppy joe on a Wednesday night at USP Beaumont. Than you gotta swim with sharks and if u think that's easy than you ain't been through it cuz u don't know how the shit feel. Than they gon stuff 20 yrs down ur throat and charge u with a leadership role to really fuck you when u find out you not eligible for good time cuz of that. If you know bout that than you can tell me this shit is worth. It. They gon lock everybody up and get paid off y'all ass. That's what it's gon come down to when they want the money. That's how they gone enslave you.. fuck that.
