This maybe a bit off topic, but I have a question to IPv8 and believe that I’ll find an answers here.
I am writing an Android app where the user can scoop liquid coins (minting coins), which we use later in a trustchain for payments. The liquid coins are scooped on a daily base which also makes it a universal basic income.
As a next step we want to integrate a chat system, where we will have a look at peerchat.
As far as I have seen, is that peerchat only sends messages when the receiver is online.
I think for our app it would be better to deliver a message on a DHT network and the user is pulling his messages when back online.
And now my questions:
Is pyipv8 able to work as a dht node?
Are there plans for kotlin-ipv8 to build a dht node (overlay)?
Or are there other possibilities to post messages offline?
In regards of trustchain. Is there a possibility to encrypt the database? I know the file is not accessible by the user, but this is only true for un-rooted devices.
