Libp2p on HTTP

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.
