I think it depends on what he means by "fake traffic." My first read of
his email was to assume he meant "fake news."... oh these crazy times...

Tor, without acting as an exit, can generate encrypted traffic depending
on usage and configuration.

Or you could just run a background script pulling/pushing traffic over
ftp/curl/fetch/wget from a $hosts list...

It really depends on what exactly the purpose of generating fake traffic is.
