Grams - Definition from the Hotspot Shield Encyclopedia
Grams is a search engine that was created in 2014. The search engines aims to provide a means of searching the Tor Network and Darknet markets for illegal goods.
The search engine allows users to search for such items as drugs, weapons and hacking services using a simple interface. Grams uses an application programming interface that takes information from popular Darknet black markets like Alpha Bay to return results to its users. The site is an important tool in the Tor Network and the Darknet market and has greatly increased the usability of the markets and aided the trafficking and sale of illegal products. In May 2014, Grams also created a paid advertisement service similar to Google's AdWords which allows markets to have paid adverts on websites etc.
