Allow/Block per codec/content type


Considering the modular approach XMTP has for content types through the usage of Codecs, and in combination with the allow/block functionality at the address/conversations level, I think It will be completely possible to add the same functionalities but for different content types, at least for standard codecs.

Hey, welcome, and thanks so much for the suggestion!

If my understanding is correct, you’d like for users to be able to block or allow messages of a certain content type.

What are the use cases you envision for this functionality?

Hi @saul, yes that´s correct.

The primary reason is for privacy settings from the users but also to avoid unnecessary node loading with undesired data.

I really think this can be an XIP because the code is modular well split so It will not take long to send a proposal with the changes.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks in advance!
