DarkSide is a graded experimental project based on depleted argon, and is now, and will be, used in direct dark matter searches. The present DarkSide50 detector (DS50), operating at the Gran Sasso Laboratory, is a dual-phase, 50 kg, liquid argon time-projection-chamber surrounded by an active liquid scintillator veto. It is designed to be background free in 3 year of operation. DS(50) performance, when filled with atmospheric argon, will be reported. However DS(50) filled with underground argon, shows impressive reduction of the 39Ar isotope, and the application of this powerful technology in a future generation of the DarkSide program will be discussed.
