Hello Tribler team,
I have been using I2P for a while. One if its main features that differientates it from py-IPv8 is garlic routing. Garlic routing is an ehancement of onion routing that combines multiple messages into one clove to improve speed and resist traffic analysis. Also, when will you make mandatory the DHT security extension for libtorrent. It is desgined to protect against a few specific attacks against the bittorrent DHT. By refusing to connect to peers that do not implement it, you can help prevent DHT snooping and some active attacks. more at libtorrent You might also want to integrate UDP trackers with py-IPv8. Also, when will you upgrade from the insecure libtorrent v1 to libtorrent v2.
All the best,
