We use #WebRTC to tunnel the iroha traffic. NAT traversal is done with STUN and our own signal server.

I'd love to get some feedback from the #fediverse ❤️
@konrad not sure I completely understand DIVA – in how far can it be compared with GNU Taler?
@mray We agree on the targets of GNU Taler: a payment system linked to existing "stable" currencies, like CHF or USD. But GNU Taler does not allow anyone to exchange digital values in a trustless private setting without intermediaries: like XMR against BTC. GNU Taler wants (and needs) a "stable" proxy and requires "escrow" and stuff.
What I never understood with GNU Taler: if one of the central aspects of GNU Taler (like the "auditor" or the "escrow") is corrupt, how to prevent fraud?
@konrad I think #Taler has a focus on making online transactiosn anonymous for the payee, but transparent on the side of the receiver. I think it just accepts the dependency on an "auditor" as there has to be one anyway in "real" currencies. Maybe there are technical limitations that require it to do it that way to protect anonymity? How far does #DIVA protect anonymity?
@mray I fully agree re your view on Taler. DIVA processes all transactions through #I2P. In theory (academic/empirical work in progress together with "Hochschule Luzern", hslu.ch) the privacy of #DIVA should be granted. All transactions go first through the i2p network and are then written to the #iroha layer at the exit node.
