    So I started a thread a little while ago about how I found an untapped niche that I didn't plan on using, and then gave it to all that PM'ed. Now that all the extremely interested had their head start, I thought I'd release it to the public. The reason that I'm doing this is because it's a time-sensitive niche, there's more than enough traffic, and potential profit is likely being wasted when only a handful of people know about it given the last 2 circumstances. You can hate me for this or love me for it, I don't really care.

    Keep in mind that I originally thought of this niche as torrent-only, but it seems people are more gullible than I thought, so file lockers will also work. Here is the PM I originally sent those who were interested. It explains the niche in itself, as well as my thoughts on how to monetize it:

    "The niche is Denuvo-protected PC games. If I've already lost you, just humor me for a second and you'll see where the pot of gold lies. Any person who has illegally downloads PC games knows that 99% of the games in existence have been cracked and are available for free via torrents. You simply go to a torrent or download site and download the cracked version of the game. This is common knowledge.

    A year or so ago, Denuvo was introduced into hugely popular mainstream games like Just Cause 3, Far Cry Primal, and FIFA 16. Denuvo, in a nutshell, is an anti-piracy software which the developers of some of the most popular PC games series in the world have installed on all current releases of their PC games and also plan to install on all subsequent ones. Nobody knows exactly how the anti-piracy works, and for over a year all of the best and most popular PC game crackers in the world have been unable to circumvent it.

    As of now there are no official cracked releases for any of these highly popular games (https://www.reddit.com/r/CrackStatus/comments/4805du/crack_status_denuvo_games/), and as far as I know no one is monetizing the mass amount of torrent searches for them by uploading fake cracks for these games. That's where the money is. Most crackers have no idea what Denuvo is because they hold to the (now false) age old idea that as long as you can play a PC game offline, you can crack it. You can leverage their ignorance by uploading fake torrents claiming to be "cracked versions" of these Denuvo games which have in reality never been cracked. People are gullible, and because of this many people would be 1,000% more likely to download and install a shifty-looking file then they would be to go and research the authenticity of a purported crack, especially if your crack is the only one listed. Right now, there are a TON of Denuvo-protected game torrent searches that are not being capitalized on. Imagine how many downloads you'd get if you uploaded a legitimate looking crack of every Denuvo game on every major torrent site.

    The best part is that because nobody is currently spamming the Denuvo-protected PC game micro-niche with shifty files, there's no competition! You can simply upload a fake "cracked" version of all the Denuvo games and the downloads will come flying in, because people are searching for something that isn't there and literally all you have to do is make them believe that your torrent is legitimate. At that point, 90% of downloaders will blindly run whatever file you put into the torrent.

    Side note: to make your torrents look more legitimate, you can do things like add fake seeds and fake comments, pump the files to the approximate size of the game, and include the name of a famous cracker in the title so it seems like the crack was released from a trusted source (e.g. "Far Cry Primal - R.G.Mechanics", because this is the syntax that the famous cracker R.G.Mechanics uses for all his releases and people will recognize it)."

    The list of Denuvo protected games and thus, keywords, can be found below:

    He means it's illegal and he doesn't want to get caught.

    Looks good. You could probably make some youtube videos for it and gain some easy money. I'm not the blackhat type of person some of the time, but if you want to be a good guy, maybe share it on a pay per download website without any content locking, so you don't waste their time doing CPA offers. Dunno how much money would be made with PPD though.

    What part of this do you think is illegal? None of it is illegal.

    Pirating games and all that cracking stuff is illegal (not really dangerous for the downloaders though) but idk if it counts as illegal, if you share fake cracks.

    It's just misleading if you share fake cracks, not illegal. This is because there is no DRM circumvention or copyrighted content being leveraged. I can see how it may seem illegal though.

    All it does is compromise business ethics. I mean, if you want to accuse a BHW member of compromising business ethics go right ahead, but you may be in the wrong forum :p

    Best of luck to all that profit within this niche.
