Tachyon decentralized VPN

Hi, community!

Has anybody heard of Tachyon VPN? On one hand, it is claimed to be open source and decentralized, but on the other hand, it sounds shady and suspicious that it’s based on blockchain.

It sounds like that other one Mysterium which we decided against.

Personally I’m not a fan of these re-inventions of Tor mushed with some crypto currency, they feel wrong to me, and don’t appear to offer a lot of value. They also always seem to have glossy websites with loads “as seen on” and links to press coverage, more than actual meat for very early alpha implementation.

Ugh, who commits with no commit message, that is just bad.

It is similar to Mysterium, BitVPN and Orchid VPN. Tor also does something similar to it.

Ugh, who commits with no commit message 7, that is just bad.

Definately not me.

But you promote safing which is… re-invention of TOR

Its more about the craze of throwing cryptocurrency at a problem, and the associated marketing while lacking meat on the bone. As I said in the Github issue, these things seem to be lacking on documentation, particularly low level stuff.
