Add ratings to peers
- outbound peers now have a rating
- it's also shown in the network status tab
- currently it's between -1 to +1, changes by 0.1 steps and uses a
hyperbolic function 0.05/(1.0 - rating) to convert rating to
probability with which we should connect to that node when randomly
- it increases when we successfully establish a full outbound connection
to a node, and decreases when we fail to do that
- onion nodes have priority when using SOCKS

Bitmessage is a P2P communications protocol used to send encrypted messages to another person or to many subscribers. It is decentralized and trustless, meaning that you need-not inherently trust any entities like root certificate authorities. It uses strong authentication, which means that the sender of a message cannot be spoofed, and it aims to hide "non-content" data, like the sender and receiver of messages, from passive eavesdroppers like those running warrantless wiretapping programs.


Bitmessage is a collaborative project. You are welcome to submit pull requests although if you plan to put a non-trivial amount of work into coding new features, it is recommended that you first solicit feedback on the DevTalk pseudo-mailing list: BM-2D9QKN4teYRvoq2fyzpiftPh9WP9qggtzh
