Why does /d/Dread not just implement private onion addresses like /d/AlphaBay does? it works great for /d/AlphaBay why not dread?

Sir, we have private onion address, but premium dread membership has to be purchased. It's $50, I hope I'm right.

/u/TestAuthenticator · 1 votes · 3 months ago · Link

Yes this is true, Premium members get the fast private onion links. If you aren't a premium member then out of luck.

/u/glownigger123 · 1 votes · 3 months ago · Link

$600 a year. It's only for rich people basically

/u/Expectant · 1 votes · 2 months ago · Link

The Dread Elite.

I never had the chance to use Premium, but I would assume the link doesn't change and stays active even after your membership expires.

To scale out enough instances to cover a private link for every user that requests one would be extremely expensive, we don't have a whole lot of income and have burned through just about all our funds currently.

This is also something that can further harm the network putting strain where there doesn't need to be. We've always been able to maintain a primary onion address through DoS attacks and provide a real solution rather than mirror rotation or other methods. We'll have this solved soon enough.

thanks for the update and good luck. not many people can pay 600/year for a forum and i2p is difficult on tails which is the most convenient and easiest secure os. peke on alphabay forums said he is trying to make an i2p tails clone :)

It's actually $50 for "lifetime" at the moment, it has been since I implemented the store, memberships do not currently expire. It will be changed in the future with plenty of notice, but right now it is a one time payment until we can at least guarantee stability.

Will those who purchase be grandfathered in at the $50 for life?

/u/HugBunter A · 1 votes · 2 months ago · Link

Probably not, I was more so saying that right now, there isn't an expiry. Maybe I overstated it by adding the word "for life" in there.

/u/Mikael · 1 votes · 2 months ago · Link

cmon, that's retarded. If someone buys it while it's lifetime you shouldn't charge them monthly when you decide for it to be subscription based. $50 lifetime sounds good, but when you start to talk about it being lifetime "for now" it doesn't sound as good.

/u/HugBunter A · 1 votes · 2 months ago · Link

No because it isn't "life time". We just disabled expiry for the time being to ensure everyone who does purchase has premium access for the forseeable future. There will be plenty of notice in advance to any change to that. The purchases are all made currently and still worded under the agreement that it will expire after 30 days, we have chosen to avoid the expiry for now however.

howdy friend

i honestly think all vendors should have to pay 50$ a month if they want to join as vendors on here

the Exposer they Dread is running at full speed is way worth the 50$ a month

i know u r not about the money Hug but this will help with running costs ect

Unfortunately that defeats the purpose of the platform, I'll always make sure we're keeping things ticking over one way or another!

Regarding your last post on /d/Squid because I was banned from their subdread.

If you can literally get a shell on their market within 2 minutes of creating an account. Why the fuck are you letting them advertise on this Dread, it's not like they can get advertisement anywhere else.

/u/bandrubber · 1 votes · 2 months ago · Link

/u/Expectant · 1 votes · 2 months ago · Link

There are only 2 official links to access dreads, 3 respectively if you have a premium membership.
