Registering an account on Abacus differs slightly from other darknet markets in that it is very simple and intuitive. First you have to find the "Register” button. As soon as you go to the account creation screen, you will need to enter the data in all fields.
Enter a unique username not associated with any accounts generated elsewhere and a strong password (at least 8 characters long, consisting of letters, numbers, and special symbols). Then enter the captcha and press “Sign Up”. On the next screen you will be presented with a 24-word mnemonic.
This mnemonic serves as a kind of username/password combo that can allow you to regain access to your account should you somehow get locked out of it. After you have copied it and saved it to a safe and secure place, press “Proceed to Sign In”. You will now be redirected to the sign-in screen, where you will enter your newly-created username and password to log in to the site. And that’s it! You are now free to browse the market.
Abacus Market does not use the traditional, central wallet system used by most other markets. As such, there is no need to make an initial deposit before placing an order. Rather than depositing funds into a market account balance, buyers send funds to a designated address to cover the cost of one order at a time. After the buyer has finalized the order, funds are then released by the market to the vendor.
Listings are divided into the following categories (and subcategories):
As with most darknet markets, the most popular category on Abacus is Drugs, which contains over half the market’s listings at any given time. Clicking on a listings category will reveal a grid view of items of that category. There is also a button to expand the "detailed search" filters.
From the basic grid view, we see the name of the product, the price, the vendor name, and the vendor’s level (higher level = more experienced vendor). Hovering over the product name reveals the full name of the product and clicking on it brings up more information about it.
Here we can see:
In the left column you can see some basic statistics about the vendor, including their vendor level (experience level), breakdown of customer feedback (Positive, Neutral, Negative), and buttons to either send the vendor a message or check out their full line of listings. Clicking on the vendor name will take you to their page on the market.
Here we can see advanced info about the vendor, including FE status and feedback ratings for quality, communication, and shipping. Beneath this, all the vendor’s current listings are displayed for easy browsing.
Founded in February 2020, Abacus Market is a wallet-less escrow darknet market that supports both Bitcoin and Monero.
The market does not have on-site wallets where funds are centrally stored, but rather single-use addresses for each order, and funds for completed orders always go directly to the vendor’s payout address. This mitigates the potential for an attack or exit scam to a certain degree in that there is never a single, big pool of user funds which can be stolen or confiscated.
The market’s Featured Listings are displayed on the main page. Running parallel to the Featured Listings is a list of “Latest Completed Orders” which allow you to see the market’s currently most popular listings. We recommend sticking with only experienced vendors on this market, who are names that you may recognize from elsewhere. This bit of advice – along with employing good OpSec and always encrypting your own info – are steps you can take to maximize your chances of success when placing an order on Abacus Market.
We only have 1 official link. You should save it.
Before attempting to use Abacus Market there are some concepts you should first be familiar with:
|Bitcoin (BTC) & Monero (XMR)
Vendor's that have proven themself over time, that have a good reputation, are able to take FE orders, this means that as soon as you place the order, the vendor will recieve the money, this is exit scam protection.
Vendor's must pay a fee in order to sell on Abacus Market, this fee is 5%, this fee goes to the market admin's and keeps the operation running smooth and stable, every market does this, it is why the Admin's take the risk.
Along with the vendor fee, there is a transaction fee of 1%, this is also for the same reasons why there is a vendor fee, without these, the market would not be possible to exist, operations would not be feasible without it.
Our support team is available 24/7, if you have any issues or questions about the market, do not hestitate to contact us with your issues, you can contact us by opening a support ticket on the market.
Stay up to date with the latest cryptocurrency prices for Bitcoin (BTC), Monero (XMR), and Litecoin (LTC):
Updated every few minutes and accurate.
At Abacus Market, we understand that trust, security, and convenience are the cornerstones of any successful online marketplace. That's why we offer a unique set of features and values that set us apart as you have already seen.
After you’ve found an item you wish to purchase, press the “Buy Now” button on the listing. Next, select what shipping option you prefer, your method of payment (BTC or XMR), and quantity (Amount). Then press the “Add to Cart” button (from the item page) to begin the order placement process. You will then be brought to your Cart page.
Note that while we will encrypt your shipping information for you if you don't, you should definitely still do this part yourself. As mentioned earlier, the PGP key for the vendor can be found on their vendor page, toward the bottom, in a separate tab labeled “PGP”. For physical orders, we require an address before checkout:
Next, press “Save” to attach the encrypted address to the order. The screen will refresh. If you are happy with the amount to be paid and everything else, press the “Checkout” button to continue. You will be brought to one order confirmation screen. Press “Purchase” to proceed. You will then be brought to the Purchases screen, which looks something like this:
Click on the purple "view" button to begin the payment process. This will bring up the screen for your particular purchase, complete with a Payment Address and price total. Scroll down until you see the Payment information. This will present to you the amount to be paid in your selected cryptocurrency.
Here we can see the amount to be paid: 0.31849292 XMR as well as the address to which you will send the payment (begins with 4Kk…).You will have 24 hours to complete payment before the order is cancelled. Orders are confirmed after 2 confirmations by the blockchain.
As mentioned earlier, payments are made by the order, meaning you only need to send enough funds to cover one order at a time.
Notice how beneath the auto-cancel there is a series of order-specific States:
After payment for the item has been made, the vendor will be informed of your order and will begin preparing it. For FE orders, funds must be released to the vendor as soon as this status is updated to Sent. For Escrow orders, payment should be made after it has been delivered.
If you do not receive your escrow order, or it isn’t what you were expecting, you can open a dispute from the Purchases page. This will require you to tell the dispute moderator what happened. They will then ask the vendor for their side of the story and take into consideration both sides before deciding upon an outcome. Of course, we recommend trying to avoid disputes at all costs, which can be done by sticking with reputable (trusted) vendors that have a fair-to-large degree of experience. FE orders are very risky and you should fully trust the vendor before placing a FE order. It is not possible to dispute a FE order because the funds are released immediately after the order is marked shipped. This means we are not able to recover any funds in case there is a problem with your order. We will investigate the vendor to see if there are more complaints and take action if needed. If you do not have previous experience with the vendor you are about to order from, you should only order escrow listings.
If you are happy with your order, be sure to mark it as received so funds can be released to the vendor ASAP. This is considered proper darknet market etiquette, and not doing so may get you blacklisted from order placement by the same vendor in the future.
