Is the captcha on Vice City Market simple and user-friendly?
It is impossible to judge the captcha on behalf of all users, but I will try to express my opinion, which may coincide with the opinion of the majority.
Vice City Market uses two captchas, the first is EndGame 1.0 captcha, which we encounter when we first visit the market, to solve it you will have to mark the position of colored figures in the image in a square consisting of 9 circles, there is nothing unique and new in this captcha, but its simplicity and wide popularity in use, give me the right to believe that this is a user-friendly captcha.
The second captcha will meet us on the "Registration/Login" page, it is made in the traditional format "Picture with symbols" and the solution "Census of symbols from the picture", this captcha is definitely considered user-friendly and universally recognized for many decades.
I believe that everything is fine with captchas on Vice City Market, they are convenient for most users and do not require excessive load on users to solve them, everything is simple and traditional.
I definitely support Vice City Market in their choice of this captchas format.
My captcha rating on Vice City Market is 10 points out of 10 possible.
Is it easy to register an account on Vice City Market?
Everything is learned in comparison, if you compare registration on Vice City Market with registration on other darknet markets, then this can be attributed to a simple and convenient account registration format.
To register an account on Vice City Market, you just need to enter a "Username", "Two-time password" and "Two-time pincode" for the account you are creating.
To complete the registration, solve the captcha "By rewriting the characters from the picture" in the "Captcha" input field and click on the "REGISTER!" button.
This is not a difficult format of registration, I think no one will argue with this.
My registration rating on Vice City Market is 10 points out of 10 possible.
Is the user interface on Vice City Market user-friendly?
As for the Vice City Market, They’ve kept up with the traditional darknet market layout with the listings on the left-sidebar and links to important sections on the top-bar.
The area just below the top panel is reserved for the search bar, which is conveniently located, and the rest of the space is used to display some of the most popular and best-selling listings on the marketplace.
Their innovative browsing interface only reloads the "center screen" when you click on various categories from the left sidebar, rather than the entire page, it really simplifies the work and also helps to increase the page speed.
Another aspect worth mentioning is their automatic subcategory sliding element. Whenever we hover over any category of the list that has subcategories, it automatically slides down to show us the subcategories without having to click on it.
If you are a fan of the TradeRoute interface or miss this market, then the Vice City Market interface will seem familiar and convenient to you, but if you do not like this interface, then you will appreciate it to your liking, but I took this into account in my final assessment, so this interface cannot be called ideal.
My user interface rating on Vice City Market is 8 points out of 10 possible.
What security features does Vice City Market offer?
Vice City Market offers many security features to protect its users. These include functions such as:
2-Factor Authentication – once you set up a public PGP key for your account, it can be used as a "Key" to decrypt your 2-FA Authentication Message. Every time you log in, you must use the PGP key to decrypt the message, and only after that you are granted access to the account.
If you want to activate this function, read our step-by-step guide: how to enable 2-FA on Vice City Market.
2 of 3 MultiSignature Transactions – these are the safest bitcoin transactions! Simply put, in such transactions there are 3 private keys, each of which belongs to the vendor, the vendor and the trading platform separately. At least 2 keys are required to continue the transaction, so the probability that the vendor will scam you is quite small.
Six-Digit Pin Code – this is primarily necessary for the withdrawal of funds. However, you can also make it mandatory for all orders. This ensures that even if your PGP and password are compromised, orders cannot be placed and funds cannot be stolen.
Automatic Logout – This is a simple but convenient security feature that automatically logs you out after one hour of inactivity on the website, it guarantees that no order will be placed in your absence or your account will be misused in any way.
Encrypted PGP Messages – this is one of the easiest ways to encrypt your message so that no third party can intercept the message and decrypt its contents. Vice City Market not only recommends PGP encryption, but also provides an automatic online checkbox that can be set to encrypt messages.
Unfortunately, Vice City Market has missed many other security features, such as: Anti-Phishing Images, Mnemonic Code, Login Phrase and TOTPs.
It's also worth keeping in mind the fact that they don't use an account recovery system, if someone gained access to your account and changed the password, you can say goodbye to it.
My rating of user protection functions on Vice City Market is 6 points out of 10 possible.
Is the search function on Vice City Market filter-rich and user-friendly?
To begin with, the search functionality on the platform is above average. This allows us to choose from a "Select Category" that lists all available ads, and then there is a scale of "Relevance", "Best Selling", "Rating", "Lower Price", "Higher Price", "Newer" and "Older".
The search engine filters also allow you to manually specify "Min Price" and "Max Price" for the products you are looking for, and then you can use the filters: "Shipping To" and "Shipping From" to filter by location.
For the sake of a detailed review, I will analyze all twelve search filters in order:
The First search filter is "Select Category". It allows you to select the category within which the search will be performed. Standard search filter and very easy to use.
The Second search filter is "Relevance". It allows you to filter the search results by showing the latest products that were sold on the marketplace.

What is forbidden to sell in the Vice City Market?
Do not be surprised at such a question, yes, this is the darknet market, but at least the official darknet markets that are moderated by the dnm community have their own code of honor, which no one ethically and morally dares to cross.
Vice City Market does not allow the sale of Prostitution Services, Illegal Porn, Murder Services, Poisons, Weapons, Fentanyl and Hitman Services.
Of course, there are other markets that allow the sale of such products/services. Vice City Market is not this market.
We appreciate the position of Vice City Market to prevent these transactions, which are socially and morally unacceptable.
My assessment of the restriction rules on Vice City Market is 10 points out of 10 possible.
Which cryptocurrencies are accepted for payment on Vice City Market?
Vice City Market accepts the traditional cryptocurrency for the darknet markets, which is Bitcoin (BTC), citing obvious basic advantages such as anonymity and decentralized transactions.
But despite the fact that it is a newer platform, it still does not accept Monero (XMR). Now most darknet markets are not limited to one Bitcoin (BTC) or only one cryptocurrency, but Vice City Market is not like that.
The cryptocurrency must be deposited to a market wallet, and then can be used either to pay for purchases or to pay for the vendor's bonds.
Deposits are completely free, the commission is charged only for the withdrawal of funds.
My rating of the deposit system on Vice City Market is 10 points out of 10 possible.
Is it easy to buy products at the Vice City Market?
If you have had any trades on TradeRoute or other markets of the past and present, then it will seem to you just as simple and relatively convenient.
Currently, Vice City Market offers the same traditional way of paying for products with Bitcoins (BTC) and allows you to purchase both "Physical" and "Digital Goods".
Having chosen the desired product for yourself, before ordering, you can study its images, description, customer reviews about it, payment methods, restrictions on delivery by country, and so on.
To start placing an order, select the quantity of the product, the delivery method and, if there is a coupon, activate it by filling in the appropriate input field.
To place an order for a physical product, you only need to select the quantity, delivery method and specify the address where the purchased product should be delivered.
Placing an order for a digital product is even easier, you only need to specify the quantity of the product and receive it either automatically or wait for the vendor to contact you in private messages.
It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or a seasoned user of darknet markets, each of you will be able to purchase products at Vice City Market with ease and pleasure!
My rating of the ease of shopping on Vice City Market is 10 points out of 10 possible.
What are the requirements for vendors on Vice City Market?
Vice City Market obviously accepts existing vendors and newcomers. A fee of $300 (USD) is required to obtain vendor status. This fee is non-refundable (this resonates with buyers in the market).
Before becoming a vendor, you should familiarize yourself with the following rules. Please remember that violating any of these rules will result in an automatic and permanent ban on Vice City Market:
All porn is prohibited. This includes selling of porn accounts, any videos which may contain any porn. This is a zero tollerance policy.

NO scamming users.
NO selling fentanyl, or any product related to fentanyl (Eg Carafentanil).
NO doxxing. This will result in an instant, non negotiable ban.
NO assasination services, anything that involves harming, or stalking of people. This is strictly prohibited and will result in instant termination of your account.
There are no other restrictions, except that the vendor's account makes it impossible to buy products from other vendors.
My market rules rating on Vice City Market is 10 points out of 10 possible.
Vice City Market - Final Verdict
Vice City Market is a darknet market, rich in its experience and functions, which has earned trust for 3 years of uninterrupted operation, and now its review has come to an end, and we will summarize its results.
The market has good security features, but, unfortunately, in insufficient quantity compared to its competitors.
Vice City Market is limited in the currencies it accepts for replenishment, now you can only deposit Bitcoin (BTC), which in the era of Monere (XMR) is a big step back from the great future for this market, hope that the administration will soon fix this situation and add more cryptocurrencies that promises them only good.
With all the shortcomings of Vice City Market, I can't call this market terrible and having no future, its popularity and durability prove the opposite, and frankly, I appreciate it quite highly, because it made me remember the old days when DNM was something new and unknown.
