Ads for the sale of the COVID-19 vaccine for bitcoin appeared on the darknet


Fake advertisements for the sale of COVID-19 vaccines are spreading on the darknet, for which they ask for payment in bitcoins. Writes about this CNBC with reference to the analytical company Check Point.

Specialists found more than 340 similar ads on 34 sites. According to Check Point’s calculations, there were 8 such pages back in December.

The average cost per dose has increased from $ 250 to $ 500 and even $ 1000, the researchers say. They tried to get the vaccine by contacting one of the sellers on Telegram.

They were offered a Chinese-made vaccine for $ 750 in bitcoins. After the researchers paid, the merchant’s account was deleted and the order was never received.

Note that in early December, the cryptocurrency revenue of the darknet markets exceeded $ 1.5 billion.
