Atlantis was a darknet market founded in March 2013,[1] the third such type of market, concurrent with The Silk Road and Black Market Reloaded.

In June 2013 its startup style video attracted much media attention.[2][3]

It was the first market to accept Litecoin.[4]

Shortly after Operation Onymous, the market closed with one week's notice in September 2013,[5] in what was believed by some site staff to be outright theft.[6]
