The dark web has seen significant growth in recent years and is showing no signs of slowing down. As technology advances at a rapid pace, new trends are emerging within this hidden corner of the internet that could shape its future.
Here are two key trends to watch out for:
1) Decentralized Marketplaces
One trend gaining traction on the dark web is decentralized marketplaces where users can buy and sell goods without relying on centralized platforms like the former marketplaces known as Silk Road and AlphaBay—instead utilizing blockchain-based technologies enabling peer-to-peer transactions with maximum privacy enabled throughout entire process as well.
With cryptocurrencies becoming more prevalent each day among these online markets; decentralization continues holding promise throughout deep-web ecosystems everywhere today.
2) Rise Of AI-Driven Cyberattacks
With the theft and publication of over 100,000 ChatGPT user credentials this week, it’s clear that the interface between AI and hackers will be an issue for years to come.
Another notable trend worth considering involves cybercriminals now using artificial intelligence (AI)-driven algorithms & automated bots to carry out attacks targeting individuals across different networks too—with greater efficacy due its ability adapting according towards adversary movements encountered around every turn.
So remaining vigilant against such computational assaults requires growing knowledge among security experts themselves trying catch up fast enough providing adequate countermeasures capable preventing harm inflicted upon innocent people worldwide itself per usual expectations found elsewhere online nowadays alike.
There are a lot more facets to consider on the dark web, especially when it comes to services and products offered, but for now, it seems the looming prospect of a world driven by AI will find a home on the dark web before it hits elsewhere.
