The darknet markets are a network of online communities that exist in deep web space. These darknet markets allow people to buy and sell goods anonymously on, without government interference or regulation. The darknet has been around since the late 1980s and was created as an alternative to the growing restrictions on encryption technology such as PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) that were put into place by the United States government during this time period following the "Crypto Wars" between US law enforcement agencies and software developers who wanted to create software with strong encryption capabilities. This darknet article discusses how gaming is evolving thanks to dark net markets and what it means for gamers of today and tomorrow.
