> In one move, Apple has taken onion routing from a specialized tool for
hackers to something that will be in daily use on billions of devices. It
will be interesting to see how the rest of the industry responds. (Rather
than simply saying they do no logging, why don't VPN providers implement a
onion router - perhaps partnering with other VPN providers - so that they
simply have nothing to log? I'd expect to see that emerge sooner rather
than later.)

That’s a lovely idea. A strawman solution is that they could try to adopt
Tor on a partnership basis with other providers. But I would hazard a guess
that Tor is not an ideal fit for VPN providers trying to build this,
although I don’t have any concrete issue in mind.

Has anyone built an onion routing system based on Wireguard?

Are there any existing VPN providers that have the chops to build this?
