Major darknet marketplace White House Market ends support for bitcoin payments

Recommended Posts

White House Market, a prominent darknet marketplace, has apparently ceased support for bitcoin payments and now will only accept monero.

According to a statement attributed to the White House Market and posted on Twitter, the platform is no longer accepting bitcoin payments because Morphtoken,  the third party exchange API it used, "has suddenly decided to block access from Tor exit nodes."

The statement added: "The Bitcoin workaround was supposed to be there just to help with transition to XMR and as we are concerned, it’s done, therefore we are now Monero only, just as planned.”

 The Block confirmed the move by visiting the payment section of the marketplace’s onion website.
