Could kovri be better for anonymity than tor?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I2P
>Kovri is an I2P router written in C++.[67] It was forked from i2pd following developer disagreements.[68] Kovri's primary purpose is to integrate with the cryptocurrency Monero to send new transaction information over I2P, making it much more difficult to find which node is the origin of a transaction request.[69] Those using the Kovri router will be running full I2P routers that contribute to the I2P network the same way the current Java router does. This project is expected to benefit both the Monero and I2P communities, since it will allow for greater privacy in Monero, and it should increase the number of nodes on the I2P network.[70]
Ah, hadn't heard of this i2pd fork until now.
As with I2P in general I'd advice caution against recommending it to normies (something I really wish to do someday) until they have integrated the I2P Browser fork of Tor Browser better than they have so far (it's stupid OPSEC to make people configure leaky Firefox as their default I2P instruction).

That they're shifting to C++ from java is a good development, hopefully this will hasten the arrival of a fork in the secure language rust and a sort of synthesis of collaboration between Tor Project and I2P developers (Firefox, and by extension Tor Browser, is already written rust).

I care about the anonymized torrenting I2P facilitates (it would be amazing to normalize). Don't know much about Monero though (keep hearing about it) - do any of you use it? Isn't it just another capitalistic currency modeled on economic liberalism?

I've never heard of this. Does this have exit nodes?

Yeah basically, but it has a very private and kinda anonymous usage to it that I really like.

Firstly your funds aren't associated with your public key, so people can't see how much you own, also when you send funds to someone's public address, publicly nobody knows the public address of who sent and who received.

It is a pretty interesting coin that is not exclusively used for investing, if you want to read more, here is the link to their site explaining their security

What? I just want to know if I can use it to route my traffic through. Like, can I connected to google over this, for example?

Yes you can. It just tries to anonymize your traffic

Doesn't look like it's available. Is there a download link?

i2p is mostly for accessing services in their network afaik, but there's exit nodes as a service (rather than protocol) from what ive heard too
i havent played with i2p yet tho

Yeah but they aren't actually publicly available to my knowledge,

>C++ for secure netcode
literally Java was a better choice than that.
