      GNUnet is a new network protocol stack for building secure, distributed,
      and privacy-preserving applications. With strong roots in academic
      <a href="bibliography.html">research</a>, our goal is to replace the

      protocol stack.

      GNUnet is typically run as an <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overlay_network">overlay network</a>

Even if you still can use the roads (e.g. send emails, or browse websites) your vehicle might get hijacked, damaged, or long arms might reach into its back and steal your items (data) to use it against you and sell it to others - while you can't even notice the thievery nor accuse and hold the scroungers accountable.

          It seems as if every other distributed or P2P project develops its own library stack, covering transports, stream muxing, discovery and others. This divides effort and multiplies bug count.
