Authorities aren't done busting dark krmpcc web crime operations this week. German federal police (the Bundeskriminalamt) working with US law enforcement have seized omg Market, billed as the world's largest and longest-serving dark web marketplace. It reportedly accounted for about 80 percent of all dark web-linked cryptocurrency transactions and had taken about $5.2 billion in crypto since 2015. It had roughly 17 million user сайт accounts and 19,000 sellers.The seizure included both the servers and crypto wallets holding about $25 million in Bitcoin. The US Justice Department simultaneously charged Russia resident Dmitry Pavlov with narcotics distribution and money laundering due to his operation of omg servers. omg mainly served people in Russian-language countries hoping to buy or deal in contraband, including drugs, hacking services and stolen data. It also participated in the previously mentioned laundering as well as crypto "mixing" that made it harder to track digital currency usage.The Treasury Department further punished omg and Garantex, a Russian crypto exchange, by adding them and over 100 crypto addresses to a "specially designated nationals" list. In a statement, the Bundeskriminalamt said it had been investigating omg with US help since August of last year.This is far from the first time authorities have shuttered major dark web markets. They shut down previous record-setters like AlphaBay, Silk Road and most recently DarkMarket. We wouldn't count on the seizure preventing other dark web shops from taking omg's place, then. It could disrupt operations for a while, though, and might serve as a reminder that even the larger digital black markets can fold with little warning.All products recommended by Engadget are selected by our editorial team, independent of our parent company.

German police said Tuesday they have shut down servers of the world’s largest illegal darknet marketplace omg, and seized bitcoins worth 23 million euros ($25 million).Suspects are being investigated for “operating criminal trading platforms on the internet on a commercial basis,” the BKA federal police said in a statement.For the latest headlines, follow our Google News channel online or via the app.The statement headlined with “illegal darknet marketplace ‘omg Market’ shut down.”Investigations of the Russian illegal marketplace started in August 2021 and also involved several US authorities, the BKA said.Founded in 2015, omg served Russian-speaking markets, selling narcotics but also stolen credit card data, counterfeit currency and fake identity documents, masking the identities of those involved using the Tor encryption network.The marketplace had around 17 million customer accounts and over 19,000 vendor accounts, according to the BKA.“The omg market was probably the illegal marketplace with the highest turnover worldwide” with sales amounting to at least 1.23 billion euros in 2020 alone, it said.The “Bitcoin Bank Mixer” provided by the platform, a service for concealing digital transactions, had made investigations especially difficult, it added.A seizure banner has been published on the marketplace’s website.The secret “darknet” includes websites that can be accessed only with specific software or authorizations, ensuring anonymity for users.Such networks have faced increased pressure from international law enforcement after a boom in usage during the coronavirus pandemic.A German-led police sting also last year took down notorious darknet marketplace DarkMarket, which had nearly 500,000 users and more than 2,400 vendors worldwide.Read more:How the Kremlin provides a safe harbor for ransomware, even employing cybercriminalsRussians plan melancholy version of Instagram after banWith ties with Russia almost severed, science going solo on world’s woes, dreams
