Matrix is an open standard for decentralized real-time communication. The specification is production-ready and bridges to tons of silo products like Slack, Gitter, Telegram, Discord, and even Facebook Messenger. This lets you use Matrix to link together disjoint communities in one place, or create an alternative communication method that works with, but is independent of, communication silos.

You can create your own self-hosted Matrix chat for as little as $3.50 USD…


@victoria 👍 Thanks a lot for 1 more clearly structured & well-written post (this on ). i will try this out as soon as I have time & mind. what alternative to do you recommend?

@nurinoas None that would offer any different advantages, I'm afraid. Most of my focus is on redundancy rather than significant alternative features.

Happy to learn of alternatives that folks like, if you have them!
