Description


Non-anonymized data for the AlphaBay online anonymous marketplace (2014-2017)

"Non-anonymized database pertaining to the AlphaBay marketplace. This data was used in the papers ""Plug and Prey? Measuring the Commoditization of Cybercrime via Online Anonymous Markets"" (Van Wegberg et al., 2018), ""An Empirical Analysis of Traceability in the Monero Blockchain"" (Moeser et al., 2018) and in the joint EMCDDA/EUROPOL report ""Drugs and thedarknet: Perspectives for enforcement, researchand policy"" (EMCDDA, 2017). 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 a publicly available website (Alphabay marketplace) over two and a half years (2014-2017).

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.
