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 GNU Taler and #DIVA are close - but still different. Like: DIVA is using the I2P network for all transactions. Therefore DIVA should provide a maximum level of #privacy. Or: DIVA wants to be a distributed exchange for all digital values (like Monero, Bitcoin, XCHF or whatever - without any proxy token inbetween).
GNU Tales seems - at least as I understood it - to be rather a payment system or a system with a token inbetween (like other distributed exchanges as bisq).
How do you see it?
@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.
