About

The Versus market is a two years old market place for digital and physical items. Similar to Hansa Market, Versus Market believes in a trustless payment system, hence market only allows Multi-Signature orders while using bitcoins to buy/sale from the market. Versus Market introduced Monero(XMR) after the huge bitcoins fees. Since, there isn’t a proper Monero(XMR), users using Monero have to order without Multi-Signature payment.

How to access

Darknet sites are only reachable with the use of Tor Browser. Stay anonymous and do NOT use the same browser session for clearnet browsing (facebook, gmail, etc). The first thing you gotta do after installing Tor Browser is turning off JavaScript (Options -> Privacy & Security -> Security Level -> Switch to "Safest"). Versus Project and all darknet sites are designed to function without Javascript, which will make you vulnerable if enabled.

Ideally, you should prepare a dedicated OS or VM for all your darknet activities. Keep your darknet PGP keys and credentials on that system only, do not mix it's usage with any clearnet activities that would expose your identity.

For additional system security, we recommend you run an OS that is provenly secure such as Tails or Whonix on your dedicated system for darknet activities. We also recommend using a Tor bridge or VPN as an extra security measure since Tor will only anonymize your traffic but not the fact that you're using Tor.

Especially when using any public WiFi hotspots you should always use a VPN when accessing the Internet since you don’t know whether or not the access point is compromised. A VPN/bridge ensures that all of your traffic cannot be snooped on, this protecting yourself not only from eavesdropping but also possible identity theft.

With the mentioned setup and trusted links listed on EmpireStuff, visiting any darknet site is surely going to be safe and smooth.
