Hello everybody, I’m working on a thesis and my professor asked me to write a paragraph about how the QUIC protocol could be applied to the Tribler architecture…I have no idea, so can anyone help me? Thakyou in advance

AFAIK QUIC is just another transport protocol on top of UDP. As such, it can be used to transfer larger files between users (p2p).

We used transfer protocols on top of UDP in the past to share metadata p2p (in this case thumbnails). We’ve done TFTP and uTP before in our overlay network.

In the future we want to use this to quickly synchronize blockchains p2p.
