If you're annoyed by the shit #Signal is doing, don't switch to the next centralized thing. They all tend to go bad after a while and you can't do anything about it. Use decentralized messengers instead, like #XMPP, #Matrix or #Deltachat. Federated protocols like them can't add features unless a lot of people agree.

What exactly is the problem of this in your opinion? I don't really like capitalistic structures but I don't know why the option to add a wallet should be bad in itself.

@josterburg Even if you put ecological destruction and so on aside, it makes the target on their back bigger. Payment service providers are regulated in a lot of countries. The regulators in the EU will probably want to know who sends money to whom. It’s a good excuse to block and/or raid signal.
