Tor V3 Link

Tor V3 Link

2019, Feb 02    

With Tor 0.3.2.9 released on January 9, 2018. This brought a new version of onion (v3) service feature. As can be viewed here.

Currently, my onion version of my website jwhitenet4xmtr36.onion (Updated 12/12/2020: V2 address has been decommissioned, please use V3 addresses) runs on version 2. I choose to only run it on version 2 because I did not have the technical knowledge and resources to create a customized version 3 address, while I was able to create a customized v2 address. However, after reading more about how to create a customized v3 address, I started to do so. At the time of this writing (February 02, 2019), I have started to generate an address that starts with jwhitenet.

Unfortunately, it should take about 9 years to generate an address on a raspberry pi according to this post. I am running on more powerful hardware but it will still need to take a lot of time to create an address. I might cut down the prefix I want to just jwhite if it takes too long. In the meantime, I have an address generated of msnze35v5loz45dae6lxdgquxb6c3o23yl5oxkae4pqftivvmss5aoyd.onion, so you can visit my website there. I have also generated a version 3 address for my blog. It is sesccvwdfxu7kdsvnx24yi2p7iu2vyvccnr5b35zpwtr7yomri2o34yd.onion and it will be updated every time that I update my clearnet blog.
