Update: Silk Road 3.1 Admins in Dispute Over Alleged Exit Scam

Table of Contents

One Silk Road 3.1 admin claimed the other admins had stolen user funds in an exit scam. Another Silk Road 3.1 admin chimed in and claimed that the exit scam rumors were false. The truth is more complicated than it seems.

After receiving a lot of feedback on the matter, I can no longer conclusively say one side is right and the other side is not. Many have vouched for Walrus' reputation. SR3.1 has a much more tarnished reputation.

HugBunter/SR 3.1 “Update”

The other admins informed HugBunter that the the opposite of Walrus' warning is the actual truth. Other admins fired Walrus after he had stolen user funds. Then, after the other admins had fired him, he still had access to the server but not the main URL. The “working mirrors” are in fact Walrus' own creations.

An Official update on the Silk Road subdread:

We closed the market to make an upgrades and are working on it still… celeste will be here shortly to sign a message (head admin).

During this, former Admin (Walrus) has stolen all user funds and move the platform onto another onion address. This is firstly a warning, if you use this cloned platform you will lose your funds! Walrus is attempting to exit scam by doing this and also made a post here earlier suggesting the Admins are exiting but this is a false.

The market will be online again when we are complete. This situation is far from ideal now but all stolen funds he has stolen have already been replaced from cold storage so your money deposited before the maintenance is completely safe.

For updates continue to follow the /d/silkroad post.

An Update from Silk Road 3.1 on Current Events Involving the Marketplace

An Update from Silk Road 3.1 on Current Events Involving the Marketplace


In a private conversation with Darknetlive, a post on Dread, and several posts on the Silk Road 3.1 forums, the administrator known as “Walrus” warned users that two (now former) administrators of the marketplace had “hijacked” the market’s v2 and v3 addresses, stolen roughly two Bitcoin, and accessed an out-of-date database used “to run phishing sites.”

With little information to go on right now, this post serves primarily as a warning that something out of the ordinary is happening with the marketplace’s administration. Darknetlive is relaying the warnings provided by Walrus, a Silk Road 3.1 administrator. The admin signed all messages and posts with his official key. The rogue admins allegedly attempted to sell the market to the admins of Nightmare Market and the admin of Empire Market. Darknetlive cannot confirm this with the Nightmare Market admin and has not confirmed this with the Empire Market admin.

Warning from Walrus

The announcement Walrus asked Darknetlive to post:

AlphaWaves/Celeste and Daray/Xonnek are hijacking the V2 and V3 urls so they can exit scam the market.

To protect the market, Daray was fired for stealing guest users orders along with AlphaWaves has been trying to sell the market to Empire and Nightmare admins (and other people who are currently nameless). More details and drama to follow if they do not stop what they are doing and pull down the V2 URLs and phishing sites.

Emergency URL for the market is

[redacted]

No funds have been lost but withdrawals are currently on hold until this drama is resolved and all vendors are aware of the new URL. AW and Daray have stolen approx. 2BTC since cleaning out the hot wallets this time but have run exit scams on Lunacy and SR3 before.

The market wallets have been changed and neither admin has any access now. No data has been compromised, although they have an out of date database they are using to run phishing sites (along with what will become of the V2 urls). Do not trust the old silkroad4 and silkroad7 URLs. Replacement V3 urls are coming soon and these will be secured.

Stay calm, and Stay Safe.


A post by Walrus on the Silk Road 3.1 forums

A post by Walrus on the Silk Road 3.1 forums

The admin also posted warnings on the Silk Road 3.1 forums and on Dread. Those warnings, minus the signatures, are listed below.

First Warning

On the Silk Road 3.1 forums

Celeste/AW and Daray/Xonnek are performing another exit scam, like July 2017.

To save the Silk Road, we are moving to new domains ASAP. Your funds are secure, the new address will be given soon.

I will begin posting addresses and logs until the stop.

Here is our new emergency URL:

[redacted]

No orders, data, or funds have been lost. The 2 rogues have stolen no more than 2BTC, possible because until today we were using wallets that had been migrated and copies were made by the admins. Secure wallets have been generated, there is no danger for these addresses being generated now for your orders. The withdrawal system is online.


First Update

On the Silk Road 3.1 forums

Your funds are secure, SR has new wallets and the is no possibility of AlphaWaves and Daray stealing deposited coins this way now. Now we must generate new URLS to protect ourselves.


Second Update

On the Silk Road 3.1 forums

We are live on Dread:

http://dreadditevelidot.onion/post/8542a27a6218bdf81e0d

Emergency URL

[redacted]

  • From here we can no longer trust the safety of the V2 and V3 urls. We will create new ones, again, as with the reason we created the V3 urls is the same as creating the new ones: Rogue admins have copies of the hostname keys and the market safety can not tolerate this.

Second Warning

On Dread

AlphaWaves and Daray are exit scamming again as they did in July 2017 with Lunacy and SR3. They have no server access but are taking control of the V2 urls after Daray/Xonnek was fired AGAIN for stealing guest users order withdrawals.

If they do not stop this, I will have no choice but to begin posting dox, logs and BTC addresses, AW private PGP key, call.php (code to call the admins cellphone) (i know right) of these scammers.

No buyers or vendor has lost ANY of the funds stolen by AlphaWaves or Daray.

AlphaWaves has previously tried to sell the market to, but not limited to, the admin from Nightmare, the admin from Empire… When AW exit scam Lunacy he tried to sell the market with all its shitty code for 30BTC.

Here is the new emergancy URL while we get everything fixed.

Funds stolen by these scammers is minimal and buyers and vendors will not notice any difference.


Accessing the marketplace via the links previously identified as the official market links is impossible. The landing page displays the following message:

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA512

We are performing upgrades and data migration to improve availability and functionality.
The first stage of this will require the marketplace to be offline for an undetermined period of time. We will be back as soon as possible and all user funds are safe.

We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience and will provide further updates within the next 48 hours.

By contrast, the so-called “emergency address” provided by Walrus works as expected. Updates will follow as soon as there is more to know.

I accused the admins, MONTHS AGO, of stealing my 0.1 BTC deposit and they just told me that I must have been phished. Nonsense. I am not a n00b. I have been here since the beginning. I told them they had a rogue admin or THEY were exit scamming or the market had been compromised. I then warned all of my trusted vendors. I certainly hope that they listened. I will find out when the next "trusted" market appears. Unfortunately, buyers are exhausted in chasing the next market and may just give up soon.

Re: NewEraOnline stealing my 0.1 BTC deposit

Not that I don’t believe you but it is bizarre that market admins would feel the need to steal $1k from users. That is not a good sign.

The official update on the silk road sub is real. Walrus is the scammer not the other two admins. The links listed on Darknetlive right now are the legitimate silk road marketplace.

The clone site that Walrus set up on the long V3 onions was exactly that, a clone. It contained no funds of the actual users.

E.g the satriales market displayed all our funds and orders when we logged in but we wasn’t able to withdraw any of the funds.The auto finalization timers was also different on the satriales clone. He likely set this up to function similar to Nightmare to get noobs to deposit new coins so he could steal them.

The legitimate silk road ran by the two admins and listed on here is working fine including all withdrawals.

I'm pretty livid, as I lost my order key because my laptop shutdown unexpectedly after ordering 230 dollars worth from the vendor prettypillz from Canada. I ordered the items on august 18th, 2019 and they have not arrived at all! I've always had great service on SR. Can someone help me in getting ahold of a vendor when I sent that much money to them for a product that I haven't received or heard back from them on. There must be a way to resolve it without an order key... I have all of the other information needed. Any advice would so be appreciated. Thank you! I

SR used to be a quality market. But that’s over. STAY AWAY FROM SR AT ALL COSTS!! Anytime you deposit money into a SR wallet or for an order, it never arrives. It happens to me twice. I tracked my btc and it was moved into multiple other wallets which isn’t what btc should be doing when it’s sent to one singular address. Again stay away from Silk Road, they are crooked and will rip you off.

Same experience for me, deposit got confirmed by 50+ nodes but never arrived in my SR wallet, meanwhile the deposit address displayed in my account has changed, and the funds I sent have been transferred to another address. Looking at transactions to this new address it looks like the deposit address I initially used has been used for multiple transactions, which definitely sounds like a scam (how could they link a given deposit to your account if the deposit address is shared by multiple persons..?). You can see all these transactions here (see how the address ending with “ESKC” is used multiple times): https://www.blockchain.com/btc/tx/e8a9717f9543c92b3c0957ff54ee79df7b0221d52338b37701cebb4493069363

Does anyone know how to contact an admin there? (I doubt it would change anything, but it’s worth trying)
Also, does anyone know a trustworthy market? (well, as trustworthy as this kind of platform can be ^^)

Been 4 days processing/pending 0.5BTC withdrawal. Told time and time again, today or tomorrow sorry for the delay.

And some vendors are saying payments not being relesed after its been confirmed on both sides. Only some though Been getting about 50% of orders, waiting for SR to give funds to vendors on the others.

Who knows anymore?

I posted my concerns on Dread's SilkRoad channel (http://dreadditevelidot.onion/d/SilkRoad, post title is "SilkRoad 3.1 Scam Concerns") in the hope of getting info from a SR admin there, but it's currently down (DDoS?), hopefully they'll answer at some point, in which case I'll post an update here so that you guys know what's up. But I'm far from being optimistic about the outcome of all this... :/ How did you guys manage to contact admins to complain? I can't seem to find any way to do this without placing an order (which I definitely won't, given how things have been so far), as both the buyer chat and the forum are down.

I withdrew funds 5 days ago from SR and the transaction is still processing. Tivon (admin) responded to my inquiries once saying it would only take a day maybe 2 for the funds to clear. He has since stopped responding to me. Yeaterday multiple vemdors had warnings on their item descriptions saying not to deposit anything on SR as all coins are being stuck in the same withdraw limbo as mine. Something is up here guys. Pretty sure its a scam and SR crew is purposefully blocking the withdrawal of any funds feom the site. Stay away!

I think I was just scammed by Silk Road 3.1
Two orders, thankfully just small samples to test quality. Neither arrived.
However, I did get messages from the two vendors and the messages were weirdly identical:

I've had the same issue as some of you guys - placed an order on SR, BTC has been taken from my wallet but it's showing as 'awaiting payment' after over a week. Tried contacting the vendor and raised a support ticket, but not heard anything from anyone. What's also weird is that on Tivon's profile it's showing as a 'new vendor' with no reviews and last login was in Feb 2018 ! Similar with Jackie2017. Is this normal or another sign of a scam ? If anyone knows of any other reliable sites then please let us know. Used to use Dream market but that's gone now too!

Yep same for me too. I sent money on the 10/10 and also had a refund from a vendor supposedly go through on the 10/10, but nothing in my BTC wallet as yet. Have opened two separate claims with the mods and Tivon is supposedly attending to it, but I’ve literally heard nothing for about 3 weeks.

I also had heaps of trouble receiving any orders from O/S throughout July, Aug and September like only 1 order got through to Australia out of about 8. Which is unheard of despite being at the earth’s end :P

My question is; is our BTC are lost or just stock into a safe wallet ? After I read this I still don't know when it was "secure" or not. And do we know if a new silk road's coming? I lost 600euros and feel so fucked!!! neverending processing withdraw and no help from staff...

Lost around $500 by depositing into SR wallet recently. I opened a ticket shortly after it happened, and now the site isn't accessible at all it seems. Definitely looks like an exit scam or worse. It would be so cool if this shit stopped happening every time I get used to using a market. I hope someone finds whoever is responsible and physically fucks them up.

After waiting over a day for my transfer to show up, I found my same vendor on empire market (got the same message from them about SR exit scamming), bitcoin was transferred and order marked shipped. I see other vendors I recognize from dream market on there, so I think it's legit. Can anyone confirm?

Hi @Dcgoul92 we are all in the same.. I suggest you look for the vendors in other sites so you can continue ordering. I tried to log in one more time in SR, but now I can't even log in and the website goes to blank. If a miracle happens may be we can still don't loose the deposits and orders on SR, but so far that is distance utopia.

Feel sorry for all you guys but slightly better knowing it hasn't just happened to me! I deposited $200 worth of BTC two weeks ago, never made it to my wallet, opened a ticket, assigned o jackie2017 same as some other dude on this thread, i sent 6 messages over a ten day period...no reply! I have since successfully ordered from empire,3 orders 2 vendors, both arived pronto. Do your ow research as always and good luck.

@canwefindthem… nice proposal but difficult to implement. Jackie2017, Walrus and Tivon are long gone who knows under what rock to not to be found, and Im 110% sure that they are reading these posts and may be adding commentaries too, just to mess with us… (shame on you SR admins, I stayed resilient for nothing!)

@lovelaughlive & @Luca1994, so far there is nothing it can be done but wait how (if) this is resolved. For all others buyers I strongly suggest to NOT deposit anything on SR, and find the vendors on other markets.

May be this incident is related to SR forced exit(?), the dates are rarely suspiciously close:

Ditto here. Sent BTC to SR 11/5 for order and BTC never arrived.

What I just discovered is that the address shown on two transactions just happened to be the same address used when I wanted to add to my wallet. And now, when I look at the transaction waiting for payment, the fucking address is different than it was when I sent the funds for payment. We've been fucked. Over $1k for me.

I was almost going to make a 700 dollar purchase a couple of weeks ago when out of the blue I got an email message in my mailbox from my vendor who I had purchased from him 15 times before that the Silkroad was scamming and he was not able to withdraw his bitcoins. Thank God he warmed me because when Wall Street Market went down I lost 700 dollars and I was dope sick for a month and lost my job because of it. I am now using Grey market which is a new market but they are secure and dont use wallets which makes them much safer, they are still growing and might not have that many vendors but for what I need my vendor is on there. I also use the Tochka market and have made about 9 purchases from them over 6.5 months and have always received my order. I really dont know why Silkroad had to scam, they were doing well, they had a good user base and they were growing, I really dont know why greed has to rear its ugly head on most markets eventually either that, or the fucking American law enforcement agencies take them down and jail them for life. But please whatever you do, always make a contribution to the Tor network, even if it is 5 dollars, we need Tor now more than ever.

I have $939 I have been waiting on 1 was in escrow and has been banned, the other vendor had a FE status and he got his money and never sent my order and had the nerve to tell me to go to another site. The rest was Bitcoin deposits that has not been put on my account because the Bitcoin address changed as soon as I made 2 deposits so I put in a ticket and this has been going on for about 2 months Tivon replied 2 times asking me to send the urls for the vendors so I did and also sent the bitcoin address that I made deposits with the dates and amount of deposits. It's really ridiculous the lack of communication and that not a cent has been returned to me so I am just really hoping that whatever is going on gets solved ASAP so I can get my funds if silkroad got all the issues resolved and vendors are taken care of as well I would continue to use SR but it has been so much time without anyone replying that I am so frustrated. Empire Market is having issues also as far as Bitcoin deposits into your account so they owe me around $750 I try to do my orders big so I don't have to go on and deal with wondering if and when the vendor is going to actually send my order.

Same here, BTC transfer on SR not received in SR wallet. Beware Empire also seem to be scamming. i've got disputes and support tickets open for over a month with no response, so money lost there too :(

@Redfrog totally agreed a 100%, it is ununderstandable and uncomprehensible that a site that was growing not only in numbers but in potential, it ended up in this mess. It is more profitable, more comfortable and more inteligent to keep the site going and selling, unless there was an internal conflict or a problem like this: https://www.dw.com/en/darknet-cybercrime-servers-hosted-in-former-nato-bunker-in-germany/a-50618469 , that actually happened on the same dates that SR started exit scamming. May be this a wake up call to keep a more fluid communitacion between sellers & buyers, like the nice gestor of your vendor that warned not to transfer BTC to the SR wallet.

Hey @herates I'm sorry to hear that you have lost some $ too. I have shifted to Apollon Market, so far so good, many vendors from SR are there: http://apollonujscjrlng.onion/ best of luck!

Nonyabiz sorry to hear you lost $939 dollars, that is a lot of money. Same thing happened to me when Wall Street Market went down. But that was because Law enforcement had taken it over.

You must initiate a payment within -16 hours or this order will be deleted.
Do not worry, once the payment is sent, your order will not delete, even if the payment remains unconfirmed.

SCAMMED! soon confirmed. NOT even confimred on blockchain……

Well, SR is now up and running on a old version. I was able to login but my F2A was disabled. Old orders and messages are gone(though some appear but are not accessible/readable). Listings are also old and the vendors haven't logged in for months. Wallets are also disabled. I would stay away from this drama and go back to buying from street dealers

Rick

DON'T BUY FROM SR TILL THE SITUATION IT'S CLEAR. The wallets are not restored, I can't see the money I had. So don't risk buying even if you can.
