Maintaining and running a secure P2P privacy preserving network requires computational resources and has potentially high costs. Peers who reliably offer resources to the commons should be rewarded for it. Rewards can also work as incentives for good behaviour.


  • Use in privacy preserving DHTs (#8)

Some ideas:

  • Protocol using micro blockchain transactions using zero knowledge proofs or confidential zero sum blockchain transactions (as in Mimblewimble/Grin);

  • Any reward should be transferred in an anonymous way.

    Using trust information to improve the anonymity provided by onion-routing networks. the work presents a trust model used for selecting secure relays that reduce probability that adversaries can control both entry and exit nodes.
