  • Privfiles - Secure file sharing / storage with storage API | 2021-10-16
    ... OK... It's just... FreeNet is a real thing and SkyNet is from a movie? Backing your storage with Freenet would have made the project more intriguing. You could make it so that any privfiles instance is capable of pushing files to/retrieving files from the Freenet distributed datastore my making it an FCP client, so anyone could set up a privfiles instance and use it to transparently fetch files uploaded from another entirely different privfiles instance.

    But it doesn't stop here. The darkweb encompasses more than just Tor's onion services. You could also download I2P, Freenet, Zeronet, Lokinet, or Yggdrasil to access their respective sites and communities. I haven't used these networks much, so I can only refer you to their subs: r/i2p r/freenet r/zeronet r/oxen_io r/yggdrasil

  • Is IPFS reliable at this point?
    Sure! is open source project. You can find sources here: Interactions with it's API are quite primitive, but allows you to do everything you may wish - even create database!
  • How do you get the URL to interesting sites? | 2021-09-19
  • Freenet is a peer-to-peer platform for censorship-resistant communication | 2021-09-19
    So the issue was that the default bookmarks contained a site directory ("index" in Freenet terminology) which was not properly filtered by its author.

    But IIRC it was always decided to only add indexes to the default bookmarks if their authors do label them as filtered!?

    Perhaps this was a slip-up of whoever the anonymous maintainer of the index was.

    It is also possible that in the past the bookmarks contained both the filtered version of an index as well as another one of the same index which was explicitly labeled as unfiltered. Then the users could decide on their own if they want filtered content or not.

    I don't remember if this was actually done!

    In any case: The default bookmarks are here, you can check the git history yourself:

  • Looking for freelance Rust developer to work on an open source peer-to-peer platform built on libp2p and web assembly | 2021-08-24
    Ah, yes - my approach is quite different, it isn't blockchain based. It's more of a distributed key-value database, cryptographically enforced, with observer semantics for realtime communication. It draws most on my previous project Freenet, which was the first distributed, decentralized, encrypted p2p network.
