After many people asked Keybase to support Mastodon profiles, Keybase has designed an API to allow more platforms on their service, and prepared a demo patch for how it could work with Mastodon.
To avoid a conflict of interest, I have asked Keybase to stop their Patreon pledge to Mastodon, refunded all of their pledges so far (the $200/mo for your logo on joinmastodon.org tier), and removed their logo from joinmastodon.org
@Gargron I am not sure to understand the reason behind this choice but maybe I am naive?
@lthms The point is that the integration is either something we want, or something we don't want, for Mastodon, but it should not happen just because Keybase pays me.
@Gargron Yeah, I get the point now. I was a bit surprise like, you know. They give you money *and* code, so it should be a good thing… yet I can foresee how this can end up badly for Mastodon.
Contribute with pledges xor money makes sense.
It is nice to see ethical decision making.
