Data Collection and Analysis from Russian Anonymous Market Places
Collection and analysis of data from Russian anonymous trading platforms was conducted from December 2016 to May 2017. The analysis revealed that the sites are used mainly for the sale of light types of drugs. Also, for one of the sites, the monthly volume of retail deals was estimated and an index was constructed reflecting the dynamics of activity of buyers and sellers. Then, in the analysis of time series, it was found that the bitcoin rate has a predictive effect on this index.
