Versus Market was hacked and has now gone offline without any notice or explanation from its admin. We suggest users to use AlphaBay Market.
Versus Market is calling themself “The Versus Project” because they see it as a community project, and they are not trying to setup another simple market to make a quick buck but rather try to build a real community driven project much like in the old days of the Darknet.
The Versus Project is built for and by the community, they are including the buyers as much as possible in the development of the market.

FAQ on Versus Market
Where can I deposit funds? Where is my wallet?
On Versus you don’t have to deposit money to your account.
You can just pay for your purchases on checkout as you would do on any regular e-commerce that accepts crypto payments.
Simply search the market for your favorite items, place products on your shopping cart and when you are done just go ahead and pay for your orders.
We will provide you with an invoice for your total purchase and all you need to do is to pay the EXACT amount to the wallet we provide you with.
My order has been declined or expired. What about my refund?
In case of a 2/3 multisig transaction: If you see the ‘refund ready’ status on your order details it means you have to sign the transaction with your private key to release the funds out of escrow into the refund wallet you provided us with.
In case of a 2/2 multisig transaction: You have to wait for your vendor to sign the refund for you. You don’t want to wait? Use 2/3 multisig on your next order to avoid relying on your vendor to refund you.
Refunds on expired or declined orders will be refunded to the wallet you defined on your settings or order details. Make sure you control this wallet/address. If you lose access you wont be able to be refunded and will lose your coins.
I have paid for my invoice and the status is Paid, but the order status is unpaid what does it mean?
It just means that your transaction hasn’t been confirmed by the bitcoin network yet. We require at least 3 confirmations.
My vendor is not accepting the order and doesn’t reply. I want a refund.
A vendor has 72 hours to accept an order. After the order is accepted and processing, the vendor has 7 days to move it to shipped status. Most vendors will, and should, ship the order much sooner than the allotted 7 day timeframe, but we set that larger window of time for vendor side OPSEC.
What is 2-2 or 2-3 multi sig?
2-2 and 2-3 Multi Sig refers to the number of signatures required to release the funds being held during the MS Transaction. 2-2 Refers to a transaction between 2 parties that requires 2 signatures to release the funds. 2-3 Refers to a transaction between 3 parties that requires 2 signatures, of any of the 3 parties, to release the funds.
Is Versus 2-2 or 2-3?
Versus is by default 2-3 . Remember, all 2/3 multisignature transactions take place between 3 parties. You, the vendor, and the marketplace. Only 2 signatures out of the 3 parties are required to release the funds.
User who are either too lazy to keep their coins safe or simply have enough to afford to lose some can optionally chose to use one of the following 2/2 payment methods where only the market and vendor participate in a multisig transaction.
FE – Finalize early (Money is being released to the vendor right after he marks the order shipped.
FP – Fast Pay (Money is held in escrow for at least 3-5 days.
It is very important to understand that you risk to lose your funds by using FE or FP. If one of the participating parties (vendor/market) is not able or willing to sign for a refund the money will be locked up in the multisig transaction forever.
