Interview with Archetyp Admin
Interview with Archetyp
We sent a few questions to the admin of the market, a small interview. Check out the answers below.
You opened as an EU only market, why?
Initially we opened as EU only market, that was back in May 2020, we wanted to offer a specialized market for Europe, where everything will be customized for Europe only, to serve European interests. On the stoners days, 4/20 2021 what seems to be another market, started a DDoS attack against our onion. As we were not able to find out, which market performed these attacks, our best possible way to payback, was to expand our market to the whole world, to try and takeaway some customers from the attacker \m/
Aren’t you afraid of getting busted?
No, not really. While I do have a lot respect towards the police authority and do not underestimate them, I know whereon my security is based and that I have to make sure to keep this at all times.
I think what many people do not keep in mind is, that only because Monero currently counts as "untraceable", this is not a promise that will still count in the future, there are companies who work active on tracing Monero transactions. The biggest mistakes of busted admins, where often papertrails.
With increasing computation power, it will get easier to trace Monero transactions. If I send a transaction today, there is no guarantee that this transaction will be untraceable in 5 years. My "crimes" will not be lapsed till then, therefore I have to make sure, that my anonymity will still remain, even in 10 years.
Why is only drugs and medicine allowed on your market?
Would drugs be legal in an utopia? Yes. Would Fraud be legal in an utopia? No. I think all drugs should be legalized, while I would want harder punishments for Fraud. Drugs use does not directly cause harm. Drug abuse does. We should not ban dangerous substances, but educate about them. I think there is a lot of potential in various mind altering substances.
What do you think you will be doing in 5 years, what is your vision?
In five years I'll run the biggest drug market, while maintaining highest security and quality standards. We have a lot planned with Archetyp, and we continue to always improve. I'm sure we will never stop this way of operation.
Do you think drugs will be legalized any time soon?
Worldwide: No. Within the the EU, I can see drugs going to be decriminalized, I can not think of a when though. I think the youth is more ready to do it. In Germany cannabis is likely to get legalized within 4 years, so that's a first step.
Thanks to YosemiteGhostWrite for the answers.

News on Archetyp Market 2022-09-18
Update of the year
this is most likely the biggest update of the year, introducing multiple new features to the market and forum.
First of all, thanks to everyone who makes this possible: Users & Vendors who use this market, who might share the link to this market and help growing this community into what it now is.
Thank you all! I never thought this would all work out so well, never in my dreams I thought we would reach the milestones we reached and I'm incredibly thankful for all the trust throughout the last couple months / years. I will when time allows it write more about the thankfulness I have for this community, I want to not extend it too much, as the update part will be big on its own anyways.
Finally. We were able to complete the update, which changed so many things about our forum and we hope you will like it. Of course you can give us ideas how to improve it and we will take them serious. We also need moderators, if you have some history on this market and would like to help moderate the forum, please message us, write a small ticket, tell us which language you would like to moderate and we will likely add you to the team.
We added almost every requested function from /b/archetyp/requests and more, we now have signatures, profile images, a search engine, post count, comment count and a lot more.
We finally added the language filter, you can now visit the Forum Settings to change the languages shown to you and in which you would want to write. Please: If you wrote posts in the past months, open them and adjust the language you wrote them in, to properly set us up.
The supported tags grew a lot, you find a detailed list here: /bbcode
Via Forum Settings you can manage all settings, you setup the languages shown to you, the language you mostly write in, the way comments should be sorted, how many comments per page load should be shown, how profiles are displayed (Show images or not, show signatures or not) and you can also enable or disable the native browser spellchecker.
Vendors can setup a "vendor thread", it's the thread they create here: /b/vendors/threads - they need to copy the ID and paste it into the field, afterwards the thread will be linked in their profile and users can browse /u/vendorname/post to get linked.
Profile images and signatures
They are only available to users with some history on the market, to make abuse harder.
Your profile located here: /u/username was updated as well, it will now show more stats about the account, alongside the signup and the last login, it now displays the amount of posts and comments a user made. It will also show the latest posts / comments of a user.
These updates are already live for weeks / months but are not that often used as we never forced people to read the announcements, which we now do. Therefore I now give a short list of functions we added within the last months, so vendors might start to use them.
It is located under /orders -> Accepted
This function is used to export orders with a list of tags to transform the export into a desired output for each vendor which can be adjusted in any way, supported tags are:
[PRICE] [SHIPPING_PRICE] [SHIPPING_NAME] [XMR_PRICE] [BUYER] [PGP_MESSAGE] [ORDERID] [CURRENCY] [TITLE] [AMOUNT] [SIZE] [END_LINE]
We hope it can speed up the way vendors can process new orders to ship them out faster.
This function can be setup on the /settings page, you enter your own wallet and a threshold, whenever the threshold is reached, all your XMR on the market will be sent out to the wallet. I'm sure this can make things a lot easier for vendors.
Via /staff you can now add "staff" members to your vendor account, you can setup various permissions:
- Can see orders
- Can change order status
- Can read and write messages
- Can write in the forum in your name
Stock options were added some months ago but really great is this option only for the last 2 months, when we adjusted it to work a lot better.
Stock amount: How much stock is available of the product (-1 for unlimited stock) Stock unit: How is the stock unit measured Auto-deactive on 0 stock: If you reach 0, the product will be deactivated
This function now removes listing options that are not able to be purchased if you do not have enough stock, it also removes stock on each order and adds stock for cancelled orders.
Via /promote you can currently buy 50.000 impressions for 30€ - these impressions will be shown on the /market the first 2 search results are always promoted posts fit to the specific category. On the main market page the first x posts are also always promoted. It may help you reach customers better :)
This function is really new and enables a vendor to setup a text message to be sent out on different events. You can find the tool here /automessages Tags supported are: [BUYER] [ORDERID] [LISTING_ID]
Reminder about listings
We notice many vendors setting up listings in a "spamy" way: Multiple listings for the same product ignoring listing options for the price. We do not want this and urge every vendor to not doing this. The system detects this anyways and punishes you indirectly for doing this.
Coming soon - in ~ 1 week from this post
The ArcheWiki is meant to be the one place of Archetyp, where the best guides, tutorials, tricks and in general important knowledge will be curated. Free for everyone, free forever. I started this project almost one year ago but was never able to complete and develop it because other things stopped me, it's now ready and live. You can access it here: /archewiki
The Wiki is user-driven, this means everyone can take part of it, to make sure no trolls ruin the project, the wiki will be secured by a revision history, similar how "wikipedia" works. We will store old versions of the texts and make them available as backup solutions. Before a new text will be shown moderators will need to approve the content. (We are looking for mods, write a ticket please)
The ArcheWiki can be translated and translated versions can be shown, I will start with English and if users want, they can add data in other languages or translate guides from English to their native language. I also will add the market translations files to the ArcheWiki, so people will have a way easier time to help and translating this market.
The data will soon be able to be downloaded, I will enable the export of HTML / Plaintext (with BBCode) so the knowledge can be archived in case this market goes down. It's encouraged by us to create backups and maybe even host backups of it. Take the HTML and setup a clone, update once every week / month and you will help the darknet community a lot. We will create a post where every "copy instance" can be shared.
Please help us! If you know a great guide, please share it with us and insert it into the ArcheWiki, BBCode is supported and we hope to create the biggest resource of knowledge for the darknet together. :)

Is this website illegal?
A lot of things and actions are illegal. Does it mean it is correct that they are? Does it mean they don't exist or happen? Does it mean suits from next door or people in the parliament comply with all of them?
How long does it take for a payment to be processed?
While this depends on various aspects, payments should usually be processed within half an hour. In rare case, it might take about an hour or two.
I accidentally sent the wrong currency/to an incorrect address, what can I do?
Unfortunately, there is nothing to do about this. There are warnings for all of these cases at the corresponding places in the interface.
My payment still hasn't been processed after a complete day. What is happening?
Please check again, if you sent XMR to the correct address. If you are sure everything has been done properly, please reach out via ticket.
What do you on Archetyp Market do to protect yourself and the users?
It starts at the core. For example, we only offer privacy coin XMR. We have 2FA, different usernames for login and public appearance.
I found a vulnerability.
We want to hear about it. Please contact us as soon as possible and use our PGP key. We will also reward you for your information in case we can confirm the issue. Vendors
How are vendors being selected and tested?
There are a couple of aspects. We want to hear about their motiviation, their plan and planned listings. In case of a known vendor, we verify them through existing platforms.
