Compression in libp2p

Hi all! We’ve been exploring the use of compression in libp2p as part of our research endeavors, and I wanted to share our results with everyone and invite you to give it a run and experiment with it. This could help you save some bandwidth in your libp2p applications and protocols, and it opens the door to some interesting lines of work like the implementation of stream/protocol-level compression, or the design of new compression strategies.

If you have questions, suggestions, or you are looking to contribute to our efforts in any way do not hesitate to reach out. There is still a lot of exciting work to be done! :slight_smile:


nice report. when can we expect to have the gzip compression in the libp2p release?
