New Dream Market Site Opens

In March of 2019, the popular Dream Market declared that it would be shutting down permanently. At the same time, the site admins hinted that they would be starting a new site in its place.

Even so, after no visible evidence of a successor surfaced for several months, former Dream users began to suspect that the announcement was an empty promise. Fortunately, the admins have followed through on their promise, as they have created a new market called Samsara that is up and running. Samsara officially opened on the fourth of July, 2019. One of its verified links is http://amonelidbdizstxk.onion.

 

 

Its format is nearly identical to that of Dream Market, having categories displayed in the top left corner, mirror links on the sidebar, and listings advertised in a column arrangement to the right. It also has a similar search and filter function to the one used on Dream. The only accepted cryptocurrency at this time is bitcoin, although this may change in the future. Also, the site has a vendor application option for those who want to sell, which costs 0.025 BTC.

At present, due to being brand new, its selection of goods is limited; there are only five categories of items (digital goods, drugs, paraphernalia, services, and other), some of which have no listings at the time of this writing. Even so, if past markets are any indication, and if Samsara gains the popularity that Dream Market once had, the number of products, vendors, and users is likely to grow exponentially.

Simultaneously, because the market is unfamiliar (despite having the Dream Market format), users and vendors may want proof that it will follow through with its assertions. Those who are curious enough to test the waters will have to register and make some purchases (or likewise, sell some) to see if this is true.
