Apparently Purism enjoys trying out new stuff. Not that I mind, but we've been monitoring their "librem.one" services for a few months now. It seems that the software behind this SaaS offer is rather unmaintained.
Their Mastodon fork hasn't seen a commit in almost(?) a year, and their synapse server is stuck on 1.23.1, which has at least 4 known CVEs.
At least their VPN seems to get some updates from time to time.

I've moved many, many people to signal, and like someone pointed out in this thread, I feel like I betrayed them.
It’s not just that blockchain is just plain stupid. It’s not even that Signal is choosing to tie itself to a specific blockchain currency. It’s that adding a cryptocurrency to an end-to-end encrypted app muddies the morality of the product, and invites all sorts of government investigative and regulatory meddling: by the IRS, the SEC, FinCEN, and probably the FBI."""
