@feditips Thanks for the announcement! 🤗

A clarification on the servers concept, though: Scuttlebutt has always had servers, to make it easier (concerning NAT restrictions) for users to use the servers as synchronization hubs. Users connect indirectly, via those servers, not directly. The difference with federation is that there is no strict dependency on *any* of these servers. If a server goes down, nothing is lost. They are just facilitators, not data authorities.

@iLikeAltitude The work we'll do in the grant should also introduce partial replication, which means you wouldn't have to download everything, and wouldn't have to fear who you're connecting to and how much data they have, because you'd download always "at most X megabytes"

@iLikeAltitude Yes, initial sync unfortunately can take hours and require at least 1GB of space. It absolutely depends who you sync with (and how much data they have). We mentioned it in the Manyverse blog here: manyver.se/blog/early-days

Note: we got a grant from NGI Pointer to work on onboarding and initial sync performance. This will improve drastically within 1 year. More: manyver.se/blog/2020-10-update
