Drug Trends has identified, crawled (or ‘scraped’), extracted, categorised and analysed drug listings on cryptomarkets on a weekly basis since 1 February 2014. This summary reports on trends in the availability and type of substances sold on the internet via cryptomarkets from 1 February 2014 to 31 January 2020.

An accompanying public online interactive data visualisation is available, allowing viewers to interact with data collected over the total monitoring period. Data presented here comprise number of listings and number of vendors observed in a given week.

We have supplemented the data visualisations with:

  1. Summary document outlining key findings from 1 February 2014 to 31 January 2020; and
  2. Methods document outlining the background to this program of work and the methods underpinning data presented.
