Cypher Market has been around for a while now. After being around for almost a year, the market just started to grow in popularity. The market does not try to stand out of the crowd and aims to provide a simple and smooth experience. On Cypher Market you can find all types of goods ranging from illicit drugs to digital goods like stolen credit cards. Like most markets, Cypher has some rules restricting dangerous substances, objects and more.
Design & Interface
Being a very simple marketplace, Cypher does not stand out too much. The first thing users can see when visiting the homepage is the lacking design of the market. Cypher looks like it was designed by a back-end developer that have no understanding of user experience and design. A lot of elements on the site are inconsistent, and are just badly implemented.
Despite that, the interface manages to remain simple making the market very easy to use. A standard top-bar with all the account options is present. On the left there is a bar with all the market categories. A search bar is also present. When searching for a listing, a more advanced filter appears on the left hand side. Another thing to note is that listings can be displayed in either grid or list mode.
Features & Security
Cypher market offers all the basic features required to have a smooth shopping experience. The market is wallet-less, meaning cryptocurrencies are deposited only when placing an order. Both Bitcoin and Monero are accepted. Traditional escrow is present, along with FE for trusted vendors.
Cypher is not a new marketplace. After its launch a little over a year ago, the market did not change much. The market started experiencing some growth, which makes us think that the design will be fixed in the near future. Ignoring the design, Cypher is a simple market with all the basic features one might need. At the time of writing, the market has a little over 2,500 listings. This number is expected to grow as the market just started gaining momentum.
