Re: [tor-talk] comparison of Tor and Kovri in regards to deanonymization attacks

Kovri is just a new implementation of i2p that anonimal is working on
and Monero intends to use, not a fork of the i2p project. It still is
using the existing i2p network.

I think it's a fact that Tor is more battle tested and thus anti-fragile
than i2p, but I could be wrong. I'm also interested in what the list has
to say.
