https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I2P>Kovri is an I2P router written in C++. It was forked from i2pd following developer disagreements. 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. 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.
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?
