@craigmaloney I didn't realize at all it was possible to talk to various proprietary networks from it. That's kind of a killer feature!

Your existing plan sounds better to me because you can host any number of bridges on your own, vs Element One being 5 USD per user.
@schaueho do you mean that encryption only works between you and the bridge, but not further towards the foreign client? Or something else?
@isagalaev The bridge itself is the client from Signal's perspective. Even if the communication between the bridge and your client is encrypted by Matrix, there is a point in time where your data is deciphered on the server and you have to trust the server. At least this is my understanding. And that's different from a pure end to end encryption.
@schaueho true. So you can host your bridge yourself if that's important to you. But I agree, it's something to be aware of.
