CHFSTS Darknet Marketplace Study

We are seeking members of the community for a study to understand what influences the likelihood of a hypothetical purchase on a darknet market. Darknet markets are online sites used to enable the trade of illicit drugs and other goods.

If you are over 18 years old and fluent in English, you are eligible to participate.

Participation involves navigating through a simulated darknet marketplace, selecting a vendor to make a purchase from, filling out a brief background survey, and answering questions about your decision making.

To participate anonymously in the study, please use the following weblink:

By participating, you may choose to enter a prize draw to win 1 of 10 gift cards, each valued at AUD$100.

For any queries, please contact Professor Paul Salmon by email

The study has been approved by the University of the Sunshine Coast Human Research Ethics Committee (approval number A201417)
