Interview: An Administrator of the Outlaw Darkweb Market
Outlaw Market, a darknet marketplace that ride the line between unpopular and trustworthy, disappeared overnight without leaving a trace. To anyone but the one marketplace admin who claims no knowledge of any conspiracy, the vanishing act was an exit scam. One of the few market admins, however, claimed I the market would not have exit scammed and that something else—perhaps more sinister—had happened. As with the majority of the interviews I conduct, I let the admin do most of the talking.
