Yeap, I also did the original specs for the BtcFn protocol (bounty was payed by da2ce7).My specification
of BtcFn is on Freenet:USK@oG7cGoUEBuHyulWpcmqV0yc-I569Re2A7RRs8zRljEs,IWIcXczmLdP9FEjTvoxJgGnXnK5~PxOppN-wYSADPWQ,AQACAAE/bitcoin-over-freenet/1/Bitcoin-over-Frenet ( BtcFn ) GOALS:
- security against hackers (think DDoS)
- anonymity against competitive businesses (don't want others to know Im buying X stock or investing into Y project)
- privacy for personal use (don't want everyone to know I'm buying XL dildos
, or rather - that I'm buying midgets video online)
- privacy for political use (sponsor pro-human-rights organization from China, e.g. it's Freesite; or EFF. Etc)
- technical awesomeness - to do things right and fix bitcoin's inherited lack of anonimity
(Ofcourse all tools can be missused, even kitchen knife can be used to kill the childreeen blaaarghg, but it's no reason to go crazy and outlaw everything like idiots in USA ;-)
. Also, actual organized crime ALREADY has BETTER ways to do everything, laundry money, evade tax, extortions, kidnapping, politicians bribing - just turn on TV / or read any online newspaper
So I believe it is a tool that will benefit the weak ones (normal users), therefore it is for the better!
If you do not have Freenet yet, then this is uncensurable awesome distributed cryptonetwork, where content is stored between clients, so that it can not be censored even if content author was killed
and also the people storing parts of other people content can NOT ACCESS IT normally (unless they find proper key = url+password) so the people are usually NOT LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE as per Safe Harbor.
Installation takes 5 minutes
, it is opensource and in java. http://freenetproject.org/
Yes, it can be slow a bit
and eat some resources, but just tune the options or wait for improved version please. This is the "price" for probably most anonymous and uncensorable, unblockable network!
When you started freenet then you see proxy panel on 127.0.0.1:8888 and just paste there on bottom above USK@.... key (link) . Ask if any questions at all.http://hostinga.imagecross.com/image-hosting-00/4129bitcoin_over_freenet-diag1.pngImage Hosting
