Why? I could never get it working, and it seems like no one uses it. I'd prefer I2P funding.

yes sadly the usage is very low, prolly cause it's still mainly for filesharing. The problem is IP and TCP were made in the first place to give away too much info and DNS to rely on authorities. GNUnet's design is a way to encode concepts in networking that imho seem very related to anarchy.

TCP/IP is unrelated to DNS and can work on any network topology...

EDIT: well, not any topology, but most of them.

yeah in GNUnet they are trying to tackle privacy problems on all layers (3 and above) but it also works over TCP.

i2p is....

I dunno. I'd call it misguided but they have some very good ideas. I wish tor was more like i2p and i2p was more like tor.

what's your issue with it? I personally think Tor should focus on browsing clearnet sites and I2P should focus on hidden services, since hidden services are kind of a cheap hack on Tor anyway.

the way they decentralize the directory is pretty easily attacked. I'll have to dredge up the paper but they had a very high success rate with a very low amount of machines attacking the i2p network, the measures to prevent that are stopgaps.

Additionally, it is imo unnecessarily complicated.
