Loki network appears to be a ground up rewrite of I2P, with an eye to
the lower latency and clear-net accessibility of Tor, with newer
(presumably better) crypto than I2P.

Appears to ignore the fundamental currently-missing feature in all
mix-/ anon-/ dark-/ onion-/ etc- nets in existence today - i.e. chaff
fill, which implies some sort of badwidth/ time reservation/ promise
between nodes, which is (re)negotiated from time to time between

This chaff fill feature is the single currently-missing feature which
is required to begin to handle the problem of global (in a network
sense) passive adversaries, aka GPAs - i.e. the NSA, the CIA, the
FSB, etc, i.e. those well-funded entities paid for and run by
nation-state actors who generally oppress the fundamental rights of
the rest of us, such as the rights to live, trade, and move about
within our communities.
