The website has surfaced on deep web in 2007 and it is a collection of many links. All this .onion links were gathered by the community as registered users were able to edit the website and thus contribute to it's vast and interesting content. It was the first and probably the last genuine source of content on the hidden tor network laid out in this unique way. Few years back arround 2011 world heard about The Hidden Wiki as many media channels covered a story about a deepweb marketplace called The Silk Road which hosted many vendors selling a vast array of products from drugs to guns etc. That was the beggining of the end for that marketplace as that journalistic story made it so famous that law inforcement became interested and eventually took it down in what remains the largest tor online marketplace takedown. Hidden Wiki survived even though it's domain was hacked and seized by law enforcement in 2013 when they brought down the largest onion hosting service called Freedom Hosting, it's estimated that almost half of tor websites were hosted there at the time.

http://zqktlwiuavvvqqt4ybvgvi7tyo4hjl5xgfuvpdf6otjiycgwqbym2qad.onion is the last known onion address of the official hidden wiki.

Deepweb by nature is a savage world so if some of the links are not loading it means either the website is temporarily offline or it's dead. We are allways checking and updating the link list.
All the links you will find on this website have been verified to belong to the real onion websites they represent.

The onion world cannot be seen through the ,,eyes'' of a regular browser. Tor was created with a single goal in mind and that was to protect your privacy when browsing the internet. You may be a journalist in a country which censors various things, maybe you wanna buy a fake passport, hire a hitman or you simply wanna watch porn and you don't want your internet provider to see that activity, it prevents anyone watching your connection and knowing what website you are visiting. Simply put it's a tool to make the user anonymous.
Some recommend using tor in combination with a VPN and you can find more technical details on that topic here :

There are two ways you can do that. First one is by using a Bitcoin ATM, google to see if there's one near your location or you can use and search by address directly. If there is one close by, all you need is to install a bitcoin wallet on your smarphone (Electrum, Mycelium, BRD wallet, Edge wallet, GreenBits, BitPay etc) and scan your wallet's QR code at the bitcoin ATM so it knows where to send the coins.
The second way to get your hands on some bitcoins is by using a online exchange and here are some good ones :,,,,,,, You can also purchase them instantly via Cash App.

One of the most important points one exchange must complete in order to be recommended is ,,reputation''. See if the exchange has ever been hacked and if yes how did they handle the situation, did they just state ,,it is what it is'' or did they recover or refund the money? There are many reviews websites out there, you can also use Rredit or the social media to see what experience other users had with a specific service.

Another critieria critical for some of the users lately is how complex is the verification process. While most of them do have KYC (know-your-customer) implemented, some do allow one to purchase, sell or trade crypto without KYC but with high trading limits meaning you could only purchase or withdraw a limited amount of money each 24 hours.

Customer support is another major factor you should consider as many things can go sideways, you might not know what your doing or there could be a market or platform error and live-support can be the only way to get out of the problem.

Here's a list of 5 best rated exchanges by customers :

   You must be prepared to find out things are not as you herd because the deep web is a place which is often misinterpreted and others posting not real information about the deep web on the social media does NOT help, that's why please bookmark our website (hyperlink to in order to have access to good articles and well explained guides and hidden wiki links.
   9 of out 10 people will tell you the deep web is something you should not visit because the second you hit it up police will knock on your front door or your laptop will get infected with a crypto ransomware or a similar story but the reality is that the deep web is just another piece of the internet that is not indexed by the apparent world wide web or google like search engines.

   Dark web however is a totally different breed of animal. It's a small part of the normal and safe deep web but it's small part some would consider the evil hidden part of the internet. For example, the dark web is where Guns and drugs are traded, where darknet markets are born and raised and where videos or rapes or murder can be purchased, the worst stuff of the bad stuff is here. So dark web thrives on the onion network beeing 100% descentralized so no government controlls it.

   An ,,ebay'' like website that allows you to buy or sell drugs, guns, ransom software and other illegal products.
