Message Types

There are two methods for sending messages through the mixnet using your client:

  • send_plain_message() is the most simple: pass the recipient address and the message you wish to send as a string (this was previously send_str()). This is a nicer-to-use wrapper around send_message().
  • send_message() allows you to also define the amount of SURBs to send along with your message (which is sent as bytes).
