Non-anonymized data for the Dream, Traderoute, Berlusconi and Valhalla online anonymous marketplaces (2017-2018)

Non-anonymized database pertaining to the Dream, Berlusconi, Traderoute, and Valhalla marketplaces. This data was used in the paper "Adversarial Matching of Dark Net Market Vendor Accounts" (Tai et al., 2019), and in an upcoming EMCDDA report. In this dataset, textual information (item name, description, or feedback text) and handles have *not* been anonymized and are thus available. We don't expect any private identifiers or other PII to be present in the data, which was collected from publicly available websites over several periods within more than a year.

Tai et al. Adversarial Matching of Dark Net Market Vendor Accounts. To appear in Proceedings of the 25th ACM SIGKDD Conference of Knowledge, Discovery, and Data Mining (KDD'19). Anchorage, AK. August 2019.

For less restricted usage terms, please consider the anonymized version, which is also available without any restrictions. This non-anonymized dataset should only be requested if your project MUST rely on full textual descriptions of items and/or feedback.
