Proposal #1: HOPR network’s SOCKS5 client

[This proposal comes from @fatcatdog. To support this proposal, sign it by clicking the like (heart) button beneath this post.]

The client is server app which exposes SOCKS5 as service for other applications (implements SOCKS5 proxy protocol) and uses HOPR network on backend as client.
This is a very useful solution as there are many different existing applications that can be run through SOCKS5:

  • Crypto wallets
  • Messengers
  • Browsers
  • Many others

Existing app —> socks5 client —> HOPR network

Existing apps sends and receives its data, without even noticing that it wasn’t talking to a “normal” SOCKS5 proxy

My solution is more useful than for example creating web proxies or desktop / mobile clients as it covers a large number of existing applications without having to change their code.
