Revolution Market - A Barebones Marketplace

revolution_market_thumbnail

Revolution market is a relatively new marketplace launching almost a year ago. Since then, it has gained some popularity, but is still nowhere near the major league. Currently revolution has a little less than 3,000 listings, but is growing at a steady pace. Revolution market is mainly based in the UK and Europe, and offers all types of products ranging from drugs to digital goods.

Design & Interface

The design of revolution market is basic and does not look very professional. Major improvement can be made to make the design feel more modern and native. Some graphical glitches can be seen form time to time. As for the markets interface, it is fairly standard straight forward. A large top bard contains a search bar along with all of the account options. This includes the wallet, orders, messages and settings. When searching for an item, an advanced filter query an be found on the left hand bar. A menu with all the product categories is also present on the left.

Features & Security

Revolution market is a very basic marketplace, with all the features required for a bare bones dark-net market. Transactions can be made using both Bitcoin and Monero. The cryptocurrencies have to be deposited into a built in wallet. Direct deposit transactions are not supported. Traditional escrow support is present for all transactions. Miltisig escrow is also supported but only for bitcoin transactions. PGP encryption is present and can be used for both message encryption and 2FA login.

To become a vendor, a relatively cheap $200 vendor bond has to be paid. The market takes roughly 10% commission from all transactions. For added security, vendors are forces to use 2FA login. A store rating system is with a level that increases from successful transactions. Trusted vendors can enable Early Finalization (FE).

Conclusion

Overall Revolution is a very basic marketplace. The features present are just what's needed for a basic, dark-net shopping experience. On the other hand, the design of the market feels overlooked with lots of room for improvement. Considering Revolution has been around for almost one year, the growth experienced is fairly good. It is still unclear if the market will ever go on to become a major competitor in the space.
