@subca @BlackBox True! I've seen there's a couple of decentralized VPN projects, usually blockchain-based, that pretend to bring some more security to that space. Or should I use Tor?

@ijatz_La_Hojita @subca @BlackBox IMO the best VPN is a self-hosted (collocation or vps) box that isn't in the 14 eyes ( and running Wireguard. You could then use tor from that machine if needed. I wouldn't bother simply using a VPN service, even outside the 14 eyes... because, well, how do you know it's not a honeypot?

@ijatz_La_Hojita @subca @BlackBox There's some very cheap and adequate overseas VPS hosts, but you would also want to be careful how you pay the remote machine. Probably using anonymized crypto.

@self @ijatz_La_Hojita @subca the issue is with wireguard you must store keys in the VPS itself. So whoever can read your volume can read your keys.

@self @subca @loweel Yes, it should be a basic option to be allowed paying any VPS-related service through privacy-focused crypto, but till now I haven't seen any even accepting Monero or Zcash. Could be a project worth launching πŸ˜ƒ.

@msavoritias @subca Here's an article dealing with that question (but written by people from one of those blockchain-run VPN companies):

@ijatz_La_Hojita @subca
Very skeptical about the mysterium network.
I will follow it for sure though. Seems interesting concept

@Craftplacer @ijatz_La_Hojita nord vpn is basically about the same if not worse than just going in naked no vpn
