TheRealDeal - Definition from the Hotspot Shield Encyclopedia

The Real Deal is a website that operates as a Darknet marketplace for the distribution of Cyber-arms and selling of malicious exploits and code for use by hackers and cyber criminals.

The website operates through the Tor Network using Tor Hidden Services and uses Bitcoin for processing transactions. As an additional security feature, TheRealDeal uses multi-signature transactions. The forum was created as an alternative to other Tor darknet marketplaces that apparently offered little of value, or were indeed scams. Some of the items for sale include harmful Zero Day exploits. The site has moved locations several times and was closed for a period in 2015; however it is still operational today.
