A System of Robot Drug Dealers on Telegram Allows People to Buy Illegal Products for Bitcoin | Bitcoin News

There’s a new avenue darknet market (DNM) customers have found that allows them to purchase illegal wares 24 hours a day via a robot drug dealer hosted on Telegram.

More recently, DNM users have been leveraging a new messenger route that utilizes a Telegram software program or bot called “Televend” to facilitate drug trades.

The creators of Televend claim that the system has around 200,000 users to-date, but it’s hard to verify as there are various Televend channels with different amounts of subscribers.

For instance, admins recommend that people don’t register with their phone number and join Telegram by using a SIM hosting/SMS service like 5SIM.

When registering with a service like 5SIM, Televend operators say the user should choose an alternative country but avoid using Russia or Ex-soviet countries, as there are issues for Telegram users.

The Televend creators also suggest setting up two-factor authentication with Telegram as well.

In another thread, posted to the r/darknet forums, a couple of users say that Televend has hosted “some of the UK’s finest vendors.” The biggest warning most Televend users give, however, is for newcomers to research vendors thoroughly, because the bot system is entirely based on trust?
