Good idea. The world needs more services like this, and more awareness.
I like new toys ;)
I use a special mixnet over Tor to secure some remote server
applications. The only way to unlock or command the servers is over the
mix, and self-destruct commands can be sent over the mix. Don't ask me
why. "Cuz I can, dat's why!"
You could pipe to a script like one of these to resolve chan names to
temporary keys so messages could post to any chan:
chanerator : https://github.com/GONQ/chanerator
bitchan : https://github.com/bitchan/bitmessage
One could anonymously proxy blobs between peers out of band with this idea:
BitHTTP : https://github.com/AyrA/BitHTTP
It would be really neat to have a multi-protocol mixnet that could chain
messages through many protocols such as:
Bitmessage Mixminion Tox
RetroShare Telegram IRC
XMPP / Jabber Usenet I2P
Tor hidden IPFS ZeroNet
Gnutella Torrent Edonkey
Maybe call it "Heinz 57 Varieties Protocol ... H57V"?
In my fantasy world a message chain would not just be mail servers but
could be nodes for any of a couple dozen or more protocols. Having a
universal proof of work standard would make adapting to a particular
Imagine posting an encrypted armor text to an arcane IRC chat, and the
IRC server forwarding it to Bitmessage, and Bitmessage forwarding it to
a Tor Hidden service pastebin, the pastebin forwarding next envelope to
mixmaster, then mixmaster exit peer depositing it on
Usenet:alt.anonymous.messages, then the NNTP gateway pushing a Torrent
seed and pushing to the tracker so you could get the Usenet message with
a torrent client. We could get all kinds of ridiculous but think about
the wow factor.
