#Signal turning into a crypto-ponzi currency scheme?

stephendiehl.com/blog/signal.h

Surprise!

That Signal:
- isn't really free/libre software (as Moxie denied freedom to redistribute modified version)
- would *never* federate (political choice of centralization)
- updated server software wasn't published
- invaded people's phonebooks
- runs on Amazon+NSA's infrastructure
- is virtually impossible to use out of Google's infrastructure -
- etc.

...didn't seem to be enough to alarm Signal users.

@jz Sadly for regular people, it's the only option beyond whatsapp

It's basically the only one with a clean UI and E2EE that is on google play afaik

@ping357 @SigmaOne recommended by whom?
