Well #Signal is baking their own crypto now. 😤
How will the techbros & #elonmusk explain, that this wasn't a #ponzi scheme. 'jUsT uSe sIgNal' the non-profit, one time soulution to WhatsApp.
The soultion is #federated protocols, dontating to projects to help reach feature/privacy parity with centralized ones. NOT shifting to another centralized silo - that will inevetiably fail in a free market.
@hothobbit Encryption is the default w/ Signal, where with Matrix it's opt-in.
I'm not sure if this is still true (tho it was at least two months ago), Matrix has had issues with group chats giving the dreaded "Unable to decrypt: The sender's device has not sent us the keys for this message.", due to the it's federated nature.
New features are looked at from a security point of view before being added to Signal (for instance url links, etc), which isn't the case with Matrix...
