Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo, time to get out of the EU. I guess I should start using alternative. Anyone familiar with IPFS, tor, or if there is any alternative that don't give platform to scums?

tor won't help with this. It's directed at social media; to tax sites when they link to other sites or quote text from other sites and to force the operators to police content so that even memes that use copyrighted characters are illegal.

I thought that if a website lives on the onion network it could bypass those problem. I mean mostly for raddle or leftist news, i don't expect big social media to do such things.

Only if you don't have a clearnet domain. If raddle didn't have a clearnet domain we'd have like 4 users, and none of them are the kind of users that contribute much.

A website living on Tor won't necessarily bypass the problems. It would still be "required" to enforce the censorship machine and pay the link taxes. But enforcing such a policy in practice isn't feasible when there is no way to trace the owner of the site. A Tor hidden service cannot be served legal documents if the relevant authority has no idea to whom those papers should be served.

IANAL, but the above is how I personally understand this whole situation.

Pretty much what ziq said + it seems to be p2p social media only, I was more thinking of the internet but decentralised or hidden but without the vileness of onion network.

Looks like a meshnet. Those only work if you're within range of someone else running one - I'm not in range of any wifi, letalone someone operating a meshnet.
