Is the network traffic any way identifiable as being USPS traffic,
some nice patterns and deep inspection signs, port number,
the list of all other nodes it is connecting to...
in some countries running that node is enough to
get users jailed or killed, internet connection shut off,
questions asked, etc.

Which node decrypts that info packets?
Does that node know what IP that came from?

When user A clicks mouse send money to B, can NSA
or ISP or Sybil nodes trace that impulse back through
the network?
What other application and chaff traffic is going through
the net to hide it?

Are the transaction addresses and amounts encrypted?
No timestamps too.

Can big numbers of Sybil nodes opensource hack the
system to defeat such things, to trace coin network back.

Remember, IPv4 and rooms full of Pi's are totally free resource
for govt, corp and soldier groups. And govts definitely do not
like monetary freedom, unless the freedom gets to the
politician pocket first.

But users are not permitted to use i2p, onion, etc to help defend?

Even non privacy coin Bitcoin-BTC can use overlay networks.

Even BTC protocol over wire is still not encrypted with modern crypto, lol.
