Does Monero have a light wallet for linux somewhere (not Android or iPhone pls) ? Likes Electrum or so ?
My laptop is only a 50Gb SSD  Grin

You can connect to a remote node with the regular wallet.

I believe with Kovri that map will vanish. But again someone can correct me if I am wrong.

Most nodes will run in dual mode with both Kovri and a regular IP. People who want can go full stealth (network monitoring can only tell that you are using i2p, not that you are running Monero or anything else through it) will be able to run only Kovri, but there are tradeoffs and most people don't need that. Also, anyone wanting full stealth probably currently probably uses at least a VPN and/or Tor, etc. and won't be on that map now. So the map won't change much.

Wouldn’t this create the “optional privacy” problem that Zcash and other coins have? If you have the option to turn on full stealth it would single out those who are, right?

I would not have thought so until I heard about the fork from Java I2P and now I think it would, good point. It should probably be mandatory as well as a straight I2P C++ release for non Monero nodes.

I've been waiting on Anonimals announcement he promised before defcon in order to speculate but have not seen anything on it yet.

https://github.com/monero-project/kovri/issues/1000

Maybe if more people show some interest he would release whats he is proposing?

Yes i think so too, but if you basically use the same protocol as i2p, the network doesn't know you are using it for Monero. What's the real tradeoff?

I think he's talking about the proposed fork of the C++ Korvi I2P as opposed to the Java based I2P. They would not communicate and therefore the Korvi nodes would all be Monero nodes.

You can either connect the official GUI to a remote node or use one of the wallets listed here:

No, this is only a question of whether or not your ISP can tell you are running a Monero node. It doesn't affect anyone else or single out people who are hiding from their ISP. The default method will be for transaction submission to always go over I2P so that no transactions will be linkable to an IP address.

I'm not familiar with the I2P "fork" issue, so I can't comment on that. I do not believe that a Monero-only I2P network/protocol would be suitable for the purpose described above, but again I don't know the details.

Wouldn't constantly checking for monero updates also reveal that you're running a Monero node with the default notify only --check-updates flag, kovri or no kovri?

Kovri is essentially i2p rewritten in C++  
Are you saying I have to run Monero to run Kovri?

I don't think so. As far as I understand it, there will be a standalone Kovri client, but Monero will also have it included, so you don't have to download, run and keep updated two separate software packages.

yep , you got me , in the meantime i already found some options for it but with that i also realized myself that it would cost months/years to solve this and all i said was that i believe that there will be a time that it will be worth the time

Cheesy hehe
If you know exact position of word in your passphrase and if this (https://github.com/monero-project/monero/blob/master/src/mnemonics/english.h) still applies then you "only" need about 1625 tries. Smiley You can try once every day and I believe once you will find the right one it will already be worth it. Wink
