Bitcoin merged support for I2P this week and it will be in their next release.

The support is via SAM, so it will work with i2pd out of the box, or with Java I2P if you start SAM on /configclients in the console.

Their code looks good but I haven't tested it.

If anybody does try it, please report results.

Also, if you get a list of b32's for bitcoin nodes, please post them, as it may help people bootstrap. I don't believe they have any hardcoded seed nodes, so I assume you'll have to start with dual clearnet/i2p enabled until you find some in-i2p nodes.

Since you are running an infomercial on these guys here's what I would do:

1. Hire security: Joana R. former high priestess of Qubes is running security for Google distributed computing based on the Go Router. Good people first!
2. Hire Zab the MuWire dude.
3. Run un-intrusive stress test with data from NATLAS.
4. Network analyzer and traffic analysis on the router.
5. Stop paying Dumb-Asses. The CEO from Brave Browser is the perfect example. The Guys that hassles the network also...

The worst thing Bitcoin can do is trigger state sponsored attacks on the i2p network! I have a feeling that they might have it coming and are searching for allies. This is not the promised Lightning Network.

I'm not going to put on the "Postal" suit and go vigilante for the protection of bitcoin.

They have checked in documentation for i2p, see

https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/master/...

please review and test. Looks like they are still on track for an early August release.

Some i2pd reseeds and initial seeds are hijacked... be careful this is money now.

Thanks to the bitcoin team!

For Java I2P, you must start the SAM client on /configclients in the console to use bitcoin over i2p. SAM is not started by default.
