HORNET combines user privacy and high speed internet for utilization of Bitcoin Implications
But as good as Tor is, it lacks the speed Internet users have grown accustomed to over the years, which could ultimately be its downfall.
Or to be more precise, the HORNET whitepaper released earlier this week shows there is room to find a good balance between Internet speed and user privacy.
Just recently, Russia restricted website access to various Bitcoin websites, a ban that could be bypassed by using a protocol such as HORNET.
Using HORNET, these blockades could be bypassed as well, without giving up Internet speed and still protecting user privacy.
