@poetgrant depends on your usecase.
Bittorrent lets you efficiently transfer data from one source to multiple mutually untrusting destinations.
But it provides no persistence.
@Wolf480pl Apropos that. I'm trying out yacy now and I'm not optimistic about its future.
@poetgrant And the present, in some cases 😉
@poetgrant Yes? How so?
I just keep finding new applications for bittorrent. Lbry.io is bittorrent based. A lot of neat projects use it. I just think it seems like we have barely scratched the surface of the protocol.
You mean Usenet right?
Hahaha, well I like that too...
