Hi Everyone,

I understand that Bitcoin itself is a distributed P2P system which makes it difficult to attack as a whole but other services that Bitcoin depends on for day to day functions can be attacked with Denial of Services or other hacking methods which are causing Bitcoin some pains lately.

Here are just some thoughts from random neurons that have been firing in my head lately.

P2P Forums
P2P Forums like the days of Usenet dedicated to Bitcoin.  What is Bitcoin with out some type of communication among Bitcoin users?  With forum.bitcoin.org being unreliable lately I think a p2p forum method could possibly work.  Maybe posts/threads could work like namecoin/bitcoin and send messages from peer to peer along with having some small fee to stop spammers.  Even though it would mostly be pseudo anonymous posts could also be authenticated with public/private keys.

P2P Exchanges
A P2P exchange may be able to be set up with the bids and asks sent into the p2p universal consciousness.  A trust rating system could be established to rate sellers and buyers.  Exchange of funds could be through outside services like direct cash, dwolla, paypal, Western Union, etc.

FreeNet could be utilized for the first (if im not mistaking the first beta of FreeTalk has been released already)

As for the exchange, since it's more interactive I2P with multi-homing would be a solution.

Hi kwukduck,

Thanks for the info about FreeNet.  It would be nice if we had a Bitcoin client that rolled everything into one nice interface; Send and receive Bitcoins,  Communicate over a P2P Chat, Communicate over P2P forums and Some kinds of P2P or I2P currency exchange.

I could see where I2P and multi-homing could work since you may want your exchange more instantaneous.  Also I could see where P2P could work if you upped the transaction fee.  I could see that with a high enough transaction fee your P2P bid or ask would zip right across the network with the highest of priority.  Especially if the transaction fee was distributed across multiple nodes.  Wink
