Basically, we want to make it possible for nodes to advertise HTTP URLs in addition to “normal” libp2p addresses. You could then either speak HTTP on top of libp2p, or just dial a plain HTTPS connection.
Now assume that the MoveTheBytes protocol layers cleanly on top of HTTP, we could retrieve files directly from HTTP clients without even spinning up a libp2p node. Super interesting for CDN solutions.
This team is collecting all sorts of measurements we’re using to both inform assumptions & model networks.
