What does Escrow on the Dark Web mean?

The use of a neutral third party on the dark web to ensure that a transaction payment will be made to a seller on completion of items sent to a buyer. Generally, after a purchase is made, the funds are held ‘in escrow’ to be released when the buyer states the seller has met the terms of the purchase. Generally, the third party will also offer arbitration in case of a dispute between the two parties.
