The Hub is a discussion forum on Tor hidden services on the dark web focused on darknet market[2] reviews,[3] cryptocurrency and security.

Second in popularity only to reddit's /r/DarkNetMarkets,[4] the site was launched in January 2014 as a more secure, verifiable and discreetly moderated alternative.[5] Vendors must be verified prior to getting a vendor status on the forum. The Hub has hosted Dr. Fernando Caudevilla, 'DoctorX' as an adviser for the site's drug users who has answered more than a thousand questions in the forums of the original Silk Road and Silk Road 2.0[6] and the site has an ongoing harm reduction and drug awareness program.[7]

Similar hidden forums include Vault43.[8]
