What I want is a fully distributed public short message broadcast platform that can’t be subpoenaed or go broke and supports cryptographic verification of message integrity and sender identity. The ability to implement collaborative blocking/filtering is important; private “direct messaging” less so. It should be a protocol, for which anyone is free to implement a client on any platform (#RFCsNotIPOs!)
Am I correct in thinking IPFS would be a good basis for such a system?
Does what I want exist already? Are there any promising contenders?
