Europol took down second-largest dark web market
May 3, 2019
Wall Street Market, the second-largest dark website market only behind the recently-shutdown Dream Market, has been shut down by the Europol in Germany. Authorities have seized over $550,000 or $615,000 from the web's servers and an undisclosed amount of bitcoins that could reach a six digit number. The Dark Web division of the Europol was responsible for the arrests after the site had seen a lot of scrutiny from an influx of new users; the users came from the shutdown of Dream Market. The Europol has been working on cracking down the businesses and creating a state of paranoia in the market to better tackle the operations.
