The project nodes are (currently) running Zcash v1.1.1 “Overwinter” upgraded and Tor 0.3.3.7 (with upgrade notification status being provided via this thread).

Connecting to these Zcash nodes requires Tor : https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en

Also see : https://github.com/zcash/zcash/blob/master/doc/tor.md

A client and server guide will follow.

These nodes are run independently, although they are part of a Zcash accepting project. Thus, in terms of a transient internet, these Zcash hidden service .onion’s are likely to remain stable for the foreseeable future and beyond.

Donations and community support are welcomed.

Additional :

An associate had previously added Zcash ports to Tor Reduced Exit Policy.

See : https://forum.zcashcommunity.com/t/zcash-ports-added-to-tor-reduced-exit-policy/8695

Also here is a post from the official Tor blog mentioning Zcash (along with other crypto-currencies).

Tor torrc (config) example (CLIENT Only / Expert Bundle) Tor 1 ;

ClientOnly 1
SOCKSPort 9050
SOCKSPolicy accept 127.0.0.1/8
Log notice file /var/log/tor/notices.log
ControlPort 9051
HiddenServiceStatistics 0
ORPort 9001
LongLivedPorts 8233
ExitPolicy reject *:*
DisableDebuggerAttachment 0

See : https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en

Note : The TBB (Tor Browser Bundle) uses SOCKSPort 9150 instead of 9050 - It is also not advisable (for your own privacy / security) to run Zcash through the TBB whist browsing. You should install the Tor Expert bundle, where possible instead.

Client Only option refers to the fact that this configuration will not Relay or Exit other users Tor traffic.

See : https://github.com/zcash/zcash/blob/master/doc/tor.md

Note : Use proxy=127.0.0.1:9150 instead to connect Zcash via the TBB (Tor Browser Bundle). However, for your privacy and security it is best to run Zcash via the Tor Expert Bundle.

EDIT: Consider adding dnsseed=0 for optimal privacy for Tor 1 and Zcash 1 - Proxified Zcash (example - see below thread).

" -dnsseed - Query for peer addresses via DNS lookup, if low on addresses (default: 1 unless -connect/-noconnect) "

Also consider onlynet=onion which will enforce using only the specified addnode=.onion addresses from your zcash.conf .

A Tor enabled mining pool?
#8

Well done, xyZcash - I'm very pleased to see people integrating Tor and Zcash. What are your thoughts on the possibility of running a Zcash node with the in-testing 64 bit version of Tails OS?


#9

Thanks!

Tails OS is amnesic, so although it is really good for privacy and anonymity, it is perhaps not as well suited for using crypto-currencies.

Whonix Workstation and Gateway are not amnesic and can be set-up using VritualBox iso images on a single host machine (including windows). Zcash should build OK on the Whonix workstation, although it might need some extra packages and some testing.

See : https://www.whonix.org/

EDIT : Obviously that type of set-up is going to require lots of system RAM currently for compiling and/or making zaddress transactions. Probably min. 8 to 16 GB physical system RAM.

EDIT 2: Qubes-Whonix official builds are 64 bit only;

#10

There are a select few applications that have specific Persistence configurations but I don't know how individual users can make other applications use it...


#11

Indeed. As we see the demand increase for Zcash addnode hidden service provision then we can start to work around such issues, as a community.


#13

Nodes have been upgraded to Zcash 1.0.7 and Tor 0.2.9.10


#14

Another node

addnode=w3dxku36wbp3lowx.onion:8233


#15

This is an easy way to add nodes to an already running node.

zcash-cli addnode examplexample.onion:8223 add


#16

Thanks! If your node remains stable then it will be added to the OP and configurations. :slight_smile:


#17

How to combine the above config. examples, as follows ;

Tor 1 and Zcash 1 - Proxified Zcash - The most anonymous and censorship-resistant way to run Zcash through Tor. Hides the fact that you are running Zcash. Anyone watching your network would just see Tor connections. You won't Relay or Exit Tor Traffic for others.

Tor 1 and Zcash 2 - Dual Stack Client - allows 'clearnet' Zcash connections + .onion connectivity via Tor. You won't Relay or Exit Tor Traffic for others.

Tor 2 and Zcash 1 - Not advised - counter productive / conflicted configuration.

Tor 2 and Zcash 2 - Dual Stack Server - allows 'clearnet' Zcash connections + .onion connectivity via Tor. Creates your own addnode=.onion address which you might make public for others to connect to or keep private for you and your friends. You won't Relay or Exit Tor Traffic for others.

Tor 3 and Zcash 2 - as Dual Stack Server - allows 'clearnet' Zcash connections + .onion connectivity via Tor - however, the generated addnode=.onion address can only receive incoming hidden service connections. This is due to Tor HiddenServiceNonAnonymousMode forcing
SOCKSPort 0 and SOCKSPolicy reject * Thus, also removing proxy= and/or onion= settings from your zcash.conf is advisable. Note that this combination is most likely an efficient / secure way to run a Dual Stack Zcash .onion mining pool or faucet over Tor! Again, You won't Relay or Exit Tor Traffic for others.

...

Other combinations are not advised, are counter productive and/or present a conflicted configuration or simply don't really have a current use case.

Hi, thanks. This node is not a VPS server in who knows server farm that a VPS reseller gets. Is a server that I take care in my office. We are upgrading our network links and we spect some downtime in the next weeks, around 90% uptime in worst case.
I advertise that this is a node as a generally secure one and not a perfect reliably one.


#19

Thanks! Your contribution in setting up an additional Zcash Tor server is appreciated. Perhaps you can also add a donation address somewhere.

Not running a Tor server / Zcash node at a VPS company can have its advantages and disadvantages, of course.

Remembering that all servers are simply just; someone else's computer, somewhere on the internet! :grin:


#20

You are welcome. Having a healthy tor only zcash node that connect to 10+ tor zcash nodes is enough reward. In our company we build many authenticated hidden services based IT management and DB tools for our customers. We feel that a privacy preserving crypto currency over tor hidden service was missing. Some of our (more adventurous) customers and suppliers are liking the idea too.


#21

All zcash (named) addnode=.onion project nodes have been upgraded to the latest release 1.0.8
