Hidden Clubs: What’s the Password??

The first rule of Hidden Clubs is – you do not talk about Hidden Clubs.

Lo and behold, it’s exactly what it sounds like: a dark web site with numerous exclusive “clubs” that either require an invite or can only be entered with a certain number of “points” on the site.

If you want the link, here it is: http://x7giprgefwfvkeep.onion/

To register, you have to use a fake email address, as in “gebryotes@fake.onion.” Once that’s done, go through the “Club Directory” pictured above, and find things that interest you.

Of course, I had to join the MadIRC club, because they’re awesome, right? At the moment, that, and a few other clubs (as you can see in the screenshot) are the ones I’ve joined. So far, I’ve “gained access” by asking for an invite. I imagine this isn’t the case with all of the clubs, if they’re more “secretive.”

In fact, after taking a closer look at the site, this is true:

So I have to wonder – what are these “secret” clubs all about? Whistleblowing? Perhaps they’re darknet market or hacking related, and only want to include specific members. My guess would be the latter, but that’s just conjecture on my part. I base this on the fact that I have become a member of certain invite-only sites, and they were involved in the sale of illegal goods (albeit electronic ones, not drugs or weapons).

If they’re anything similar to sites like Suicide Apartment or the now-defunct dark0de, then it’s near impossible to get an invite – but you never know.

One of the more interesting clubs I came across was called “Silk Road,” (yeah that), and claimed to be a “new” market, or something along those lines. If you want my opinion, the Silk Road brand is dead, but good luck!

So, what’s the point of all this, then? I suppose that, like much of Tor, it’s intended for privacy and anonymity – or just to sound cool. I’ve noticed that, any time I say that a site is exclusive or members only, people keep asking how to get in. Ironically, once they do get in, the sites have a tendency to look disappointing.

Don’t get me wrong – I think Hidden Clubs is entertaining, but so far I haven’t figured out anything all that secretive about it. Maybe the problem is that I haven’t earned enough points yet.

That being said, I should start my own club on there. Any suggestions as to what to call it?

    I’m really enjoying alot of these posts so thanks for sharing! I am so excited to look into this Red Triangle puzzle, it’s right up my alley. I’ll be honest though, I am somewhat of a noob on encryption and network security and I’d definitely still call myself a noob programmer. I know infinitely more compared to your average joe but nothing compared to the veteran users of the darkweb. All I’m desperately trying to do is find a way to communicate with people like you in a safe, anonymous manner from my own box so that I can learn more and then help impart my knowledge. I imagine this is possible? Perhaps a blog post someday for eager dumbasses like myself? Don’t stop blogging, whatever you post!
