White House Market WHM Announces its Retirement after 2 years as a Top Market
White House Market WHM Announces its Retirement after 2 years as a Top Market via a post on Dread Forum. The WHM's Admin, Mr.White, announced that has reached is goal and its time to close. Nobody can be certain about this so called "goal". Most think is related to the amount of money made by WHM and so by Mr.White in 2 years of operations as Top Market accepting Monero only as payment method.
Why WHM Announces its Retirement?
This move shocked most people around, even cause WHM, with classy attitude, is closing without the so called "Exit Scam" procedure. This procedure is the act of stealing all the coins stored in the market stash that belongs to Users and Vendors.
Instead we see White House Market (WHM) closing and letting all the users withdraw all the funds in the next period. After everything will be closed.
Those decisions might be due to the the reward to risk ratio was too high for him to keep continuing his operations hence making the decision to retire.
White House Market Case History
WHM, rised up in the middle of 2019. In that period finding most markets under heavy DDoS attacks or Exit Scamming. Unique due to the choice of being a Monero (XMR) only Dark Net Marketplace.
The Dark Net community, beside some users, loved and gave a positive response for adopting a privacy cryptocurrency.
- WHM deployment in Mid August 2019
- Multiple cryptocurrencies accepted
- Creation of the famous and most used "Endgame" anti ddos finlter during march 2020
- WHM becomes the biggest dark web market after Empire's exit scam September 2020
- Over 400k users inDecember 2020
- WHM Announces its Retirement with over 850K users in October 2021
Mr.White the Mind behind WHM Operations
Mr.White, smart and mysterious, a character emerging from the mists of 2019. Present Only on the well-known Dark Net Dread forum. This figure has never exposed himself personally, he got a couple of interviews from the news of the industry but never talk about himself.
Known as an intelligent figure who was able to mitigate the DDoS wave through his software, published in Open Source format, to combat unfair competition and foster a universe for markets that was truly free.
With the same class as these two years of operations, we see him heading into the sunset. Without harming customers and vendors at the end of the journey.
The Full Announcement by Mr. White WHM Admin
We have reached our goal and now, according to plan, it’s
time to for us to retire.
immediately user registration and ordering have been disabled,
everything else (yes, withdrawals included) is working as usual.
will keep the market online for a limited time until open orders are
finalized, disputes handled and coins withdrawn. We don’t know how long
that will take but
don’t expect to come back 6 months from now and find the market up.
market rules are still in effect so users (both buyers and vendors)
should not try to take advantage of the situation and scam, the feedback
system is still working and will be shared with Recon and other
Because this week’s featured listings and stickies won’t
generate any revenue vendors who paid for them will be refunded via
their market wallet.
Vendors can now advertise the markets where they operate on their vendor profiles however direct contacts are still disallowed.
alternative markets check out /d/Superlist on Dread, the ones listed
there are established and going strong. Keep in mind any market can
disappear at any time and for what ever reason (exit scam, law
enforcement operation, hack, technical
issue and so on) but markets
like Monopoly (true wallet-less, direct deal) and Versus (enforced
multisig) greatly minimize damage. You can also give a chance to new
markets, we all have to start somewhere.
Thanks everybody for your
business, trust, support and of course for placing decent amounts of
money in our pockets. We may come back some time in the future with a
different project or we may not. Meanwhile be on the lookout for
or copycats, if it’s not signed by us it’s not us.
The successor to the Dark Market throne
WHM Announces its Retirement and the world of Dark Markets is an ever-changing world. Markets come and go due to force majeure, police forces or simply due to the greed of their admins.
What to choose is the question our readers are asking themselves, how to choose. When we talk about successors, our opinion is based on the functions that are offered and the seniority of a Dark Market. To date, the best choice by category market remains in the second and third place. A choice by taste and functions.
Dark0de a market in constant upgrade, currently enhanced with the service of autoshop promises well in the face of extreme security and the ability to effectively combat DDoS.
Torrez an old market but that has not seen major changes if not a user base on the rise.
