This guide will teach you all you need to know about connecting to Flugsvamp 4.0 on the dark web.
Flugsvamp 4.0 is a new darknet market in Sweden that only sells recreational drugs and medications. It is also totally displayed in Swedish. It is, as the name implies, the fourth incarnation of the Flugsvamp darknet market, which debuted in February 2014. The market currently has less than 700 listings, making it one of the lesser darknet markets available. Flugsvamp is Swedish for “fly agaric,” which refers to a specific type of hallucinogenic mushroom. The market has prohibited the selling of digital things, firearms, and most non-drug-related physical items. They have also prohibited the use of fentanyl and research substances that are fentanyl analogs.
Flugsvamp 4.0, a BTC-only market, lacks many of the complex payment tools that most new markets use to differentiate themselves. It employs the traditional central wallet method, in which the market retains ownership of your currencies. The administrators have stated that they intend to add support for Monero (XMR) at some point but have yet to do so. Sales outside of Sweden have been prohibited in order to avoid drawing the attention of foreign law enforcement. This means that if you do not already reside in Sweden, you should not attempt to place an order from this market.
In one of the few signed messages that currently greet market users, the admins provide the following information about themselves:
“We are a diverse workforce with a focus on information technology and security.” Our goal is to establish an honest and successful market that will naturally succeed past iterations of this market. The objective is primarily security, although functionality and user-friendliness are equally important.”
They also mention that they “increased development” of their market following the closure of Flugsvamp 3.0 earlier this fall.
This latest edition of Flugsvamp, run by different administrators than the previous one, is still fairly fresh and small. As a result, it lacks the infrastructure to deal with high user traffic, and pages and graphics typically take a long time to load. You may also find yourself randomly disconnecting from the market, which is another hallmark of infant markets that have yet to iron out the kinks. Aside from that, it appears to be off to a solid start in terms of its ability to fulfill the needs of a single nation’s darknet market.

Prior to Beginning
Before connecting to Flugsvamp 4.0 or any other darknet market, there are a few ideas that must be grasped immediately in order to proceed successfully. Among them are the following:
- Bitcoin transactions. You must understand the fundamentals of BTC transactions. This covers transferring and receiving Bitcoin as well as securely and properly storing it.
- The Tor Browser. You must have the most recent version of the Tor browser installed and understand how to use it properly (to maximize privacy while browsing the web).
- OpSec. We propose that you have a rudimentary understanding of what Operations Security – or OpSec – is, which essentially means limiting any connection between your darknet market experience and your personal life. For example, never deposit BTC directly from an exchange to a darknet market wallet, as this could create a clear link between your personal identify and darknet market activity.

Don’t Be Duped
Despite the fact that Flugsvamp 4.0 is a new market, it has already attracted multiple imitators who hope to dupe naïve customers into depositing dollars into a fraudulent account. Fortunately, by requiring you to prove that you are on the same URL displayed in their captcha system, this market has made it difficult to imitate. If the URLs do not match, you have arrived at a phishing site. Logging onto this type of site could result in a total loss of market cash, or even worse. Make sure you only access Flugsvamp 4.0 from a trusted URL (they currently only have one).
Making an Account
Flugsvamp 4.0 is still in its early stages and does not yet have a captcha system. In comparison to most other marketplaces, this makes it quite simple to open an account. When you arrive to a verified market URL, the first thing you should do is switch the screen to account creation mode. To do so, click the lime green “Registrera dig här” button under the login section. Then you’ll be taken to the account registration screen, which looks like this:
Enter a unique username in the first field and a password in the second. Flugsvamp features only one password field instead of the normal two, which means you only have one chance to enter your password correctly. We recommend typing the password and saving it somewhere secure before copying and pasting it to eliminate the possibility of error.
Because the account type to be created is set to Buyer by default, you do not need to change it. Check the box to indicate that you are visiting the official market URL, and then click on the circle to complete the captcha. And there you have it! Your account has now been established, and you have been directed to the main market page. You must attach a PGP key account before placing an order, however you can begin surfing right away.
Making a PGP Key
To receive encrypted messages and enable 2-FA, you must have a PGP key associated to your account. To set your PGP key for your Flugsvamp 4.0 account, go to your account settings by clicking the word Konto in the upper-right corner of the screen. Scroll down until you reach the text box labeled Inställningar. This is the field into which you will enter your PGP public key. When properly entered, it will appear somewhat like this:
If you are confident that you have successfully pasted your PGP key, click the Uppdatera button to proceed. You will be returned to your account screen after doing so. You will now be able to enable 2-FA on your account. To do so, click the box next to Aktivera tvfaktorsautenisering(2-FA) and then press Uppdatera. Each time you log into the market, you will be forced to decrypt a PGP message.
There are no second chances on Flugsvamp, just like there are no second chances when creating a password. If you enter the wrong PGP key and then enable 2-FA, you will be locked out of your account the next time you try to log in. This causes issues for everyone. It is preferable to avoid reaching this phase entirely by entering your PGP accurately the first time.
Making a Down Payment
To make a deposit on Flugsvamp 4.0, go back to the upper-right corner of the screen and choose the account option (Konto), then scroll down until you see the phrase Insättning. When you initially visit the market, you will not have a BTC deposit address pre-generated and will need to establish one by pressing on the circle over the URL field under Insättning. After pressing the circle, the screen will refresh and you will be shown a SegWit Bitcoin address (beginning with “bc1…”). You are free and encouraged to develop new deposit addresses for yourself at any moment.
Note: Because this market uses the age-old account wallet method and stores all customer cash, it makes them a target and increases the likelihood of an exit scam. Flugsvamp administrators even warn clients in their opening greeting message to the general public:
“As with any darknet markets, common sense is essential.” You should avoid investing more money than you intend to spend as a buyer. Flugsvamp is similar to any other darknet market in that it is not a bank safe to keep money in. As a result, just deposit the cash you intend to spend in the short future.”
We recommend taking this advice because it comes not just from the market but also from common sense, given the fragility and randomness of this specific line of business.
Exploring Flugsvamp 4.0
From left to right, Flugsvamp 4.0 is divided into the following menu options: Home, Market, Orders, Disputes, Messages, and Support are all available. To begin perusing the market, you should select the second option, Marknad. The layout is similar to that of many other markets, making it feel familiar and very intuitive.
The market is divided into the following categories (and subcategories):
- Cannabis (Buds, Hash, Vape, Wax, Edible, Other)
- Stimulants (Amphetamine, Ecstasy, Cocaine, MDMA, Other)
- Pharmaceuticals (Benzodiazepines, Pregabalin, SSRI, Other)
- Psychedelics (DMT, GHB, Ketamine, LSD, Mushrooms, Other)
- Analgesics (Opiates, Opioids)
- Steroids (Injectable, Oral, PCT, Growth Hormones, Other)
- Other (Paraphernalia)
Aside from a search box, Flugsvamp 4.0 lacks complex filtering tools, which can make it difficult to find the item you’re looking for. Listings can be sorted by relevance, user rating, popularity, and product name. As previously stated, the market is still tiny, and because listings are frequently divided into sub-subcategories, it is usually relatively easy to identify desired products simply by browsing.
When you click on an item (VISA), you’ll get more product photographs and the vendor’s description of the item. The vendor’s total number of orders (81 in this example) and average customer rating out of 5 may be found in the left column (4.83 for this vendor). Below this, you’ll find some recent product reviews, along with the date they were left, to give you a sense of what people think of the product.
Shipping and quantity options are available below this information. There aren’t many active vendors on Flugsvamp 4.0 right now, but we recommend going with an experienced vendor that has multiple sales under their belt.
Note: Choosing the proper vendor can save you from a hassle, a loss of finances, or a potentially worse situation. Avoid novice vendors with no obvious reputation or sales history. Stick with the professionals, even if it means paying a little more.
Making a Purchase
When you’re ready to buy an item, go to the item page and choose your shipping option and quantity, then click the buy button (Köp). You will then be taken to the checkout screen, which looks like this:
The order parameters, the sum to be paid in BTC, and the vendor’s PGP key may all be found here. Flugsvamp does include an auto-encryption feature, however we advise against using it. Instead, use your own PGP program to encrypt your shipping details and paste the contents into the text box below (Leveransuppgifter). The market makes it simple by displaying the vendor’s key onscreen. When the encrypted shipping information is pasted into the text field, it will look like this:
Make sure the auto-encrypt checkbox is unchecked before pressing “Köp.” Your order will be placed if you have enough BTC in your account balance to cover the previously shown total. It will be forwarded to the vendor, who will begin preparing it for delivery.
Because there is only one payment option available, all orders on Flugsvamp 4.0 are processed in the same manner. The vendor receives notification of a new order, prepares it, and ships it, updating the order status after shipping. When the buyer receives the purchase and deems that it meets their expectations, the buyer stamps the order as received. The funds are subsequently sent from the market to the vendor’s account, where they can be withdrawn. By selecting the Orders menu tab (Bestallningär), you can view the status of an order.
It is possible to open a dispute if an item does not come as expected or does not arrive at all (Dispyter). Flugsvamp 4.0 has a well-described conflict resolution process outlined in their FAQ, and it appears that they are prepared to go out of their way to give each side a meaningful opportunity to express their side of the story. Of course, it’s preferable to avoid the need for a quarrel in the first place. This is most likely achievable by keeping with established vendors who have a large number of sales under their belt as well as excellent ratings.
Flugsvamp 4.0 URL
Though still too new to fully grasp, Flugsvamp 4.0 appears to be worthy of carrying on the torch of its forefathers, clearly committed to the goal of providing a safe and secure environment for the transaction of substances declared illegal by the Swedish government. Flugsvamp 4.0, like its titular forefathers (most of the time), is inaccessible to anyone outside of Sweden because its merchants are not permitted to execute orders leaving the country. This will most likely contribute to the market’s durability, albeit it does not appear to constitute a specific metric of success.
Flugsvamp 4.0 is still fairly small in comparison to most other markets, and it does not need to be “large” to serve its objective. While there are some glitches here and there, it is likely just a matter of time before more of the vendors that used to populate the previous edition migrate to this one. Because the market uses the traditional, market-controlled wallet and escrow structure, it is more likely to perform an exit scam than markets that do not.
Flugsvamp 4.0 is a little out of date due to the lack of XMR support, multisig escrow, and per-order payment options, but after three months it has a growing user base and appears to have gained some community confidence. If the current administrators of the Flugsvamp brand can learn from the mistakes of their predecessors, Flugsvamp 4.0 is likely to become Sweden’s default market once again.
