    I've heard of apps like this before, and I find the idea quite interesting. High-population and highly-censored areas like Hong Kong seem to be quite ideal for an app like this. Technology like this could be quite useful in any densely populated area, as it benefits off of a high population density whereas regular cell towers can be overloaded by such a high volume. The idea presented at the end of the article that this technology might be integrated into other apps is really intriguing to me; seeing decentralized technology in such widespread use will surely be a great thing for everyone.
