World’s largest dark web marketplace taken down, Europol confirms

The European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation (Europol) said a multination operation took down ’world’s largest illegal marketplace’ – DarkMarket – on the dark web. DarkMarket had nearly 500,000 users and conducted 320,000 transactions worth $171 million in cryptocurrencies when it was taken down. Authorities stumbled upon DarkMarket while probing Cyberbunker, a Germany-based web host.

That's pointless I've been checking out the dark web for awhile and there's a ton of different sites like as many black market sites as there are say video game sites on the clear web

It's never going to be stopped. It is good that they keep taking them down and often making arrests, or the networks would just get larger and more bold.
