At first, official market and forum address:
(it`s good practice, to have in your mind address start with pandora and ends with zrr.onion)
Who is Alice ?
Alice is person behind Pandora open market and it is identified only by public key presented on this page, any other identities you can consider as possible scam. Alice is very paranoid about both internet and personal security and don`t except she to be chatty. Alice only want to run this market and comment only major issues.
Why i developed Pandora openmarket ?
First i must say, i started programming it like 2 days after SilkRoad closure, because i did not knew about other markets available. After i found out, there are 2 good already established market, that are working well, so there is probably no-need to have third market, but it is already done, and nobody knows, what can happen with those 2 markets (ddos, hacked, seized, closed etc.), so pandora will be there as servers (dedicated, encrypted and very powerful) and equipment are fully paid up for long time in advance.
Why your design is really bad ?
Alice is not into graphic design, if there will be somebody to style pandora market, that person will be welcomed to re-style whole market. Alice aim is to provide code and server-side security and provide simple and effective service for vendors and buyers.
So now Alice decided to go this way with PANDORA:
1) Only verified vendors from another markets will be allowed to register on Pandora marketplace (for free).
2) All vendors must go thru verification, when we verify identity of vendor thru another market (we will contact you and verify on another market to prove it is you and not scam vendor who pretend to be established vendor).
3) New or unknown vendors will have to pay high fee/bond ($500 USD) to prevent scam or not serious vendors of registering.
