DutchDrugz is a darknet marketplace vendor team specializing in psychedelics that maintains its own shop as well as vendor profiles on other DNM sites like The Majestic Garden. Beyond psychedelics like LSD and psilocybin mushrooms, DutchDrugz has earned a reputation for offering high-quality cannabis and ecstasy products. Since the operation isn’t a full-fledged darknet marketplace, its proprietary shop is small in scope, having had approximately 50 product listings available in early 2020. Users of the site must register in order to make purchases, though registering is free. In the past, the DutchDrugz shop has notably gone offline for extended periods of time while its leadership worked on new URLs. The site made its last return with new “v3” onion links in the fall of 2019.
DutchDrugz is a single vendor site, so its user interface is designed around highlighting only the project’s own products, not those belonging to other merchants. The shop is internationally-focused, too, as its main dashboard highlights its supported cryptocurrencies’ real-time exchange rates with USD, EUR, GBP, CAD, and AUD. Buyers are able to pay for their products using Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero, Litecoin, and Dash, which is a wider crypto selection than most larger darknet marketplaces offer.
DutchDrugz offers all of the DNM basics, including 2FA logins, PGP communications, and PIN phrase guarantees. Since DutchDrugz runs its own shop, it doesn’t offer support for multisig or escrow payments, meaning users must pay — and trust — the vendor directly.
Beyond the site’s expected security defenses, the leadership of DutchDrugz has campaigned to protect DNM users from the growing number of DNM-linked phishing scams. “It seems if people search on the clearnet for markets or vendors, they get linked almost certainly to a phishing site, it’s quite alarming, it used to be incidental, now it seems 1000s of scammers are preying on newcomers,” the site’s team noted in a past public service announcement. That’s more overt effort than some DNM operators have put into warning users.
DutchDrugz doesn’t offer many products at any given time, but it’s earned a reputation for vending quality psychedelics and being generally reliable. Another important factor to consider about this shop is that its attack surface is smaller compared to larger DNM platforms that host many merchants. More vendors mean more users and more users mean more problems, as it were. DutchDrugz is lean in this regard, which is a plus.
