    ?With other chat tools, messages are sent through a central server, unencrypted as it passes through and stored before being re-encrypted and sent to it?s final destination,? BitTorrent?s Christian Averill said by email. ?Our key innovation is to build a tool for communications that does not need servers. A way for two people to connect directly with the threat of their privacy being violated.?

    I don't know enough about how DHT works to even comprehend how you could communicate with someone without the use of a server. If someone could explain that a little it would be great

    Yeah I am interested to understand how this would work. I guess you would have to do some of the processing locally with pre-installed software? This has allot of potential but, if we can host a website this way, we will guarantee the safety of our favourite torrents.

    Nice boobs btw ^^ can't beat pink tank tops for boob shots.

    Thanks.

    On topic, if people could make their own internet under this protocol (similar to silk road) and organized enough where "us" could control our own set of domains it would completely blow the internet out of the water. This information is worth a follow for sure
