One of the main reasons we don’t have a truly decentralised internet is actually really simple: it’s the fact that providers globally don’t give us symmetric upload/download speeds and fixed IP addresses at home. Kills decentralisation at the root. 1/2
@claudius@jwildeboer this is actually not true. You wouldn't need to use the same IP for browsing, just for surfing. For browsing you would use temporary addresses. The static IP would just be there for the services you want to access from the internet.
@claudius@jwildeboer hmmm tracking by the host part/prefix is indeed possible. But I don't know if those are "fine enough" for the trackers since behind one prefix lots of different clients can be located.
