Experiencing Interruptions?

Darknet- forbidden reality

Russia. Our days. The Internet is divided into white and black. In the black part of the Internet, it is impossible to find a site, a user, or even a large data center. Darknet servers are not tied to any geographic location. They have been replaced by blockchain technology. The most popular means of payment is Bitcoin. The Hydra Portal, the most technically advanced electronic platform, is a leader in the drug trade market. Thanks to the practically invulnerable system of sales through hiding places for the police, today in Russia it is no more difficult to buy any illegal drug than to buy a lighter. The film tells about the threats that the darknet poses to the citizens of the Russian Federation.
