"Sebastian is known for his thoughtful review on the Bitcoin Core repository. As part of his grant renewal application, he emphasized the importance of BIP324 Version 2 P2P transport and why he plans to spend his review time on the project."
"One of Bitcoin’s key properties is censorship-resistance...I’m convinced that BIP324 is one of the most important proposals to work on to make Bitcoin future-proof with regard to censorship-resistance on the P2P layer," said the grantee.
"It is trivial for ISPs to detect, censor or even tamper with packets... BIP324 tries to counter these deficiencies by adding opportunistic encryption between Bitcoin nodes, making it significantly harder for adversaries to conduct these attacks."
"For anyone who wants to connect to my BIP324 node (let’s have fun and compare session-ids!) or help testing in any other way or have general questions, feel free to reach out to me via IRC or Twitter (theStack)."
