While reading through these forums an Idea came up.

The idea is about a hypothetical program for the paranoid amongst us: it could generate plausible but randomised files simulating:
- Wallet files
- GPG encrypted wallets
- Bitcoin encrypted wallets (as of next bitcoin version)

This could go even further in that through some modules it could generate some web traffic (randomised google searches, invalid but apparent bittorrent traffic).

That would induce so much noise that hackers and governments would not be able to discern valid wallets / files / traffic from invalid and random one.

If you encrypt your wallet with GPG (as proposed in another thread) you could plausibly argue that you actually don't have an encrypted wallet but the noise software must have generated it...

Once you spend out of a wallet, though, won't it be obvious that wallet is real? And why do you need this plausible deniability in the first place?

This is a very good idea! I have been looking for programs like this one. If one was supposed to make it, then I would definitely use it.

<helo> funny that this proposal grows the maximum block size to 8GB, and is seen as a compromise
<helo> oh, you don't like a 20x increase? well how about 8192x increase?
<JackH> lmao
