he closure of the Joker’s Stash cybercrime forum put a lasting dent in the overall market for stolen payment-card data on the dark web, researchers say, amid other factors complicating business for crooks aiming to trade in illicit credit or debit card information.

From mid-2020 to mid-2021, the value of the “carding” market fell to $1.4 billion, compared $1.9 billion during the same period a year earlier, according to cybersecurity company Group-IB, which attributes the shrinkage largely to the disappearance of Joker’s Stash.
