This vendor/shop is gone for good. Do not contact them and do not fall for copycats/impersonators contacting you. They will all scam you.

CRYPTO CHEMS research chemicals and cannabinoids started in late 2019 and refer to themselves as “No-nonsense store for high quality products with many years of experience“.
They offer a sample pack (5 products of your choice for 50 Euros, with free shipping) to allow you testing their products for little money. In fact, this is by far the best value sample pack I have ever come across.

Some of their products share a similar if not even the same fine chemical smell that you might be familiar from products by Rechemco.

crypto chem’s products are of decent quality and their prices are fair, most products cost less than 20 Euros per gram. Their blotters, however, are rather expensive compared to most other shops in Europe. For orders worth a hundred Euros or above, they offer free courier shipping.

Interesting selection

Some of their products seem rather unique, 4-CDC and such seem to be newly designed NPS. That said, it’s usually the well-known classics that sell better, because they are usually attributed to work proper, while new substances would hardly ever receive positive reviews.

A short excursion on newly emerging NPS chemicals

It is not only changes in law, meaning that certain Research Chemicals become scheduled as illegal drugs, that make labs and vendors offer new substances. They also do this because customers might order new products out of curiosity. Some of these substances are even inactive and stay available for maybe a year or so and will not be produced a second time. They still seem to sell.

I wouldn’t say that crypto chems were selling inactive substances, but there are two shops in Europe, The Real RC and EUsynth, which notoriously keep offering inactive or at least bunk substances. The Real RC spends a lot on marketing, and is really good with not only paying forums to be presented as a reliable shop, and to make these forums silence critics, but also he seems to use countless accounts on Research Chemical forums to praise his shop. For reasons unknown, this is a well-established strategy that will always work and one day, customers will copy these fake reviews and voluntarily start writing their own positive reviews about that shop. It’s like becoming a hype, and everybody wants to participate in it, I guess.

Another thing: While certain chemicals have been constantly available for ten years already, they are not really the original substances anymore. Alone in Europe, around 50 new NPS substances are being confiscated and identified every year. In some years, they even counted more than a hundred new substancesThese new substances are being sold under well-established names, but in fact, they become worse and worse, that should be obvious to everyone. Drug buyers, however, do not seem to have a problem with being lied to…

To avoid discussion about mislabeled substances, US forums, a German forum, as well as Dutch and Chinese vendors successfully directed the discussion away from product quality to calling competitors scammers.

Not so the the Polish RC Scene, which debates every single new batch their vendors start offering. They seem to be the last resort when it comes to discussing quality. The two Polish forums and dopalamy are run by vendors and tend to delete negative reviews, but they can’t delete all of them, which makes them an interesting read usually.

Back to crypto chems: 4 out of 5 samples were pleasant chemistry

While I wouldn’t go for Euthylone a second time, the other samples were surprisingly active. They felt speedy and gave a light rush, something I had not felt in a year. Finally, a shop that does not sell boredom! This speedy feeling may of course also lead to nervousness, but all products were good to handle. Their uppers reminded me of what the former Spain vendor Scientific-Innovation would have sold, crypto chems are just a bit milder which is a good thing.

The most unusual product in my sample pack was crystalline 4F-MPH. I had never seen such before, and even though it feels less caustic and still wakes you up, I have my doubts that this is the same chemical as the 4F-MPH powder that is being sold everywhere else. It is a fine chemical though, it feels smoother than the white powder versions.

Click the images to enlarge them.

When I opened the letter, I started smiling: It was around Christmas time, and adding such a nice package (see photo above) was a really nice gesture.


Fair prices, decent quality, friendly support, free shipping option. While not all the products they stock might be worthwhile, some are really good and not as lame as with certain other vendors.

Update: March 2020

Since the WHO in December 2019 recommended the worldwide scheduling of A-PHP, labs do not produce it anymore. Since it is still a bestseller with many RC Vendors, they still restock it. But whatever they are selling now, it’s obviously a different thing. Crypto chems are offering slightly grayish powder rocks labeled A-PHP now that miss the smell and taste and also the action profile of their former batch which used to be really good.

Also, they reduced their sample pack from 5 grams to 2.5 grams without reducing the price for it.

Update February 2023

    Cryptochems gone for good. seems like took the money and ran.. :((

    For everyone who did not receive their orders, please open a dispute with EU Consumer Network.

    Hostinger is the company operating cryptochems shop IT services and will disband the now non-operational cryptochems scam site, however, only if authorities (either EU Consumer Network or Law Enforcement) ask them to.

    Hostinger may also provide contact details and a lending hand for demanding your money back or reporting the shop owner for fraud so please please please take five minutes to open a dispute with EU Consumer Network which can be done here:

    If you don’t report scammers, then nobody will help you.. simple math, simple math…

    PS: Their sister site chemsresearch is also non-operational.

    ORDER – 4.0 GRAMS of a-PiHP
    I payed my order exactly 7 days ago. Its stuck on processing nor have I got any email from them with the tracking number (As they did this on my last 3 orders)

    Never had ANY issues.

    When trying to contact them, my email mirrors back, probably due to a faulty or deleted email…

    Please contact me admin.

      and sorry for the late reply.

      Please consider the following:


      We are unable to provide you any personal details of our client, such information can only be disclosed if ordered by the police or the authorities.

      We can only do a suspension to stop the scammers.

    Omg, why didnt inread the comments… I had too much faith in RC Scene unfortunately..

    No respond at all from email
    Order is stuck on processing…. Got damnit, 50EURO in garbage…

      Dear Marima,

      If there was anything like RC SCENE – no matter where in and which language – please be so kind to provide me with the link. If anybody else could do it, I will proudly archive the sites.

      The vendors here ship.

      If not, please get in touch with me to discuss the issue, and plan our onext steps.


      If I spend like one to three hours trying to figure out what happened, it would be kind of you to support RC SCENE with as little as 5 USD is possivle.


      EU & US vendors deliver within 30 days. (Unless you ordered next-day express).
      You never pay for delivery, you either receive your good or a full refund.

      Again, this for orders (within) Europe and the US.
      (Have not figured out how they deal handle things in other places.

      Any help is highly appreciated, btw., thank you!

      WHAT have we got:

      • Vendor known for working a real job and sometimes slow communications.
      • Did you wait at least a week before contacting the vendor?

      • Are you certain you provided correct name, address, and phone?

      • Correct address implies you live there.

      • Did you notice that “” states “Because of peak season and shipping restrictions we cannot guarantee shipments to be shipped the same day. Please consider that it may take 1 or 2 business days for us to be able to ship your order?”

      While peak season has become holiday season and this could actually be some vendor admitting lazy, the human thing to do would be to allow them a little time.

      • Did you receive a tracking number? You should have because he ships registered only. You cannot by accident order untracked. If so, what does tracking say? (If you share the number via email (not here!), I might be able to help you with understanding tracking codes and how to fidn the hidden ones.)
    2. How many days have passed since payment? Are you sure you paid the correct amount to the correct account? Please check again.

    3. He might not ship daily becuase a Spanish and a Dutch vendor each with $$$ in their eyes recently had to nswer questions because a hundred parcels to the US everyday seemed suspicious.

    4. Maybe he does not especially like me because I might have mentioned something about an unusudally looking and defiitely mislabled substance (that was actually a good one and not intended a complaint), but I hardly ever receive replies to emails. Others say, he would rather have long shipped and never even care about emails. I don’t know.


      • How many days have passed?
    6. You are sure you paid the correct amount and made no typo?

    7. You know that delivery could take 30 days. That depends on the mail carrier you chose. UPS and FedEx would usually be quicker while Post NL can take up to two months.


      I offer 25 USD for links to defmation campaigns! I have no time reading forums, but idiots have a habit of remembering me – if only somebody told me about them. 😉

      Again, 30 days could be okay. When I order from your area, it also takes a while.

      If you received tracking and it is says “exception” in red letters (unlikely), then customs might have seized the order.

      I doubt that they are allowed to “randomly” seize (actually they steal) your mail. I don’t know what you ordered but 50 doesnt sound like you were the next Escobar.

      Please get in tough with me (wait a little, 20 days seem reasonable) if nothing arrives and vendor in hospital.

      I am curious myself. Especially, what justice thinks of thieves stealing mail withot even telling you.

      The vendor better has shipped and can prove they did so.

      If they should disappoint, which they haven’t so far, and would kinda surprise me, we will not lose 50 Euros and call it a day. Somebody screwed you, the order is insured anyway, UPS will rather shoot crustoms than allowing random weirdos trying to break open your property…

      patience is key.
      things don’t look as bad as you might think.

      the new and updated EU vendors list will go live this week. Hardly any changes. I told you these vendors ship, and they did.

      Happy days!

    My order was placed on 06. Okt. and is still processing. Sadly Lucas didnt reply to my numerous emails anymore. Is this shop still in business? Order no. 8709

    1. Trusted RC Shops Avatar

      Hi, sorry to hear about that. I cannot afford a test order, sorry. Would you allow them until 06 November and then send him a reminder with urgency involved, demanding a refund or shipping asap, please?

      There had beeen rumors about them to possibly exit scam someday but those came from TRC bribed forum admins…

      Please make sure to leave a negative review (Scammed me!) on their TrustPilot page.

      Will see if I can reach him. We had a little argument about a mislabeled substance a while ago.

      If they should not reply, they will be categrozed scammers asap.

      Please keep me updated, thx!

    I ordered over a month ago and it’s still processing

      Please try to get in touch with them.

      If this vendor didn’t reply or process your order within a week, then please provide RC SCENE (see contact) with details on the issue. Either forward or attach your order/payment confirmation via email; screenshots are acceptable as well. No need for sharing your details; paint everything in black if you like to; just make sure that the order date and number remain visible 😉

      Meanwhile, the shop will move to the “unknown” section. I think recent reviews on their TP page and a detail on their webshop justify that. Still, the list’s design demands evidence to categorize a vendor as a scammer. Thank you.

      PS: If you got a cold, no matter how harmless it might feel, better change that covid mask not after 24 hours, not after 10 hours; replace it once it has become wet. Please don’t make the same mistake I did and think hanging it up overnight to let it dry would be sufficient to use it again. All those “standard” masks are for single use only. It even says so in the handling instructions they come with.

    My order is already for shipping since one week i think they exit-scamm. DO NOT ORDER

    And they dont answere to emails

      I just noticed your comment a minute ago. In case you never received your order, would you mind forwarding your order details (a screenshot using a black brush to hide your details will do) to, please? Thank you.

  • bjznov Avatar

    Did you email them to get them to send to the US? When I entered my address it says that shipping is unavailable to the US

    1. Trusted RC Shops Avatar

      Hi bjznov,

      The order for this Shop Review was shipped within Europe.

      If you want to order to the US, it says “Sorry, Shipping Is Unavailable To The United States (US). If You Require Assistance Or Wish To Make Alternate Arrangements Please Contact US- – So yes, I would contact them via email if I you were interested in their pproducts.

    These little cryptochems suckers flagged my review on Trustpilot because I didn’t give them 5 stars, but instead mentioned their mislabeled 4F-MPH, that their current batch of their A-PHP is a disappointment, and that their imprint on the web shop is incomplete according to Dutch law. What a bunch of douches….

    1. KØMPRØMÆT :: Research Chemicals (@rc_scene) Avatar

      It took two weeks and ten emails, but the review is online again and counts 🙂

  • uwu Avatar

    How does their A-PHP compare to theRealRc‘s A-PHP ?

    1. uwu Avatar

      Like is it still worthwhile?

      1. Trusted RC Shops Avatar

        I wouldn’t order it again. Their previous batch was good, but the new one feels like A-PHP from the distance. It seems to resemble A-PHP, but the effects are not really there. It’s a white powder or white powder crystals (please see photos above).

        TRC also stocks white powder A-PHP since end of March, I haven’t had a sample of this yet. NLbestrc also stocked white powder A-PHP recently, haven’t had a sample of this one neither. But both shops claim that it is real A-PHP and good. On the other hand: What else were they supposed to tell possible customers? 😉

        1. uwu Avatar

          That’s saddening to hear 🙁

          I was hoping for some good ol‘ APHP

          Guess ChemCloud also stores that white batch of APHP by now, i‘ll get myself that APHP from RareChems or maybe i‘ll swop completely over to that seemingly good Hexen batch from cryptochems (heard many people talking about it being one of the best Hexen batches ever)

          Does anyone else have the ol‘ APHP in stock?

          1. Trusted RC Shops Avatar

            Chemcloud are always a gamble, sometimes they deliver good quality, sometimes bunk. I just saw that Rarechems also offer the white batch now, so the wholesaler ran out of good-times A-PHP.

            You could try Chemcloud (free shipping on weekends, but minimum order 60 Euros) or ask lesser known shops like Dutchcitysales, Spaincitysales, if they still carry real A-PHP or which color it is.

            Maybe not all white A-PHP is as disappointing as cryptochem’s, I assume that Dutchcitysales / Spaincitysales and Chemcloud or NLbestRC offer different batches, by the way. They can’t be all bad 😉

              Hey is chem cloud a good place to order from.. if not can u point me in the right direction with companies that actual deliver..

            3. Trusted RC Shops Avatar


              From now on, if a shop has a page (check the lists, there is a link if it has one. Or use the search function; Chemcloud have a Trusted Shop Review even) then you do not post under cryptochms’ page but at chemcloud’s.


              This is for all of you. Off-topic => TRASH

          2. Trusted RC Shops Avatar

            PS: My notes say: cryptochems Hexen & 3-MMC: Both give you a rush, are speedy, more activing than with other vendors, strong on the libido, but rather short-lived.

            PPS: I needed to look this up, I am not good with dates: The only good Hexen ever came from Eastern Europe and was available until June 2018. Everything that came after that (labelled Hexen) is a sad joke compared what shops like 13rc had offered.

      Curious, did they start exit scamming ?

      Placed an order there pre 16:00 CES and still didn’t receive any confirmation (only at ready for shipping)

      Support didn’t answer to my question either- hopefully i‘ll still get my stuff, cause i‘ve heard plenty good things about their Hexen quality.

      Do you have more inside info on that matter (cryptochem exit scamming)?

      1. Trusted RC Shops Avatar

        Hi uyne,

        I am sorry, I am currently not up to date with happenings, but what I do know is that they last week were shipping orders as usual.

        They promise same day shipping for orders placed before 16:00, but newer shops are often small teams, maybe Lucas is even running the shop alone. So in case he had e.g. a doctor’s appointment, he might not be able to fulfill this promise.

        And don’t bother about their support. Lucas seems to read all emails, but has become so arrogant that he doesn’t answer most of them anymore…

        I wouldn’t bother about the delay, but rather wait for a couple of days (at least two). I am optimistic that your order will soon be processed!

        PS: I would appreciate if you could keep me updated regarding your order, thank you!
