@mkb I actually kind of like it. I looked into crypto a while back, and setup a wallet and all that stuff, but the process was NOT obvious. Having a product like Keybase, which already makes encryption their business, handle all the minutia makes sense to me. That's not to say that I'm going to start using crypto currency for everything, but it's nice to know an easy to use option is there.
@sym As excited as I am by cryptocurrencies and the underlying tech, I’m skeptical of the applications I’ve seen for these ideas.
I’d have had more confidence in Keybase announcing additional, premium services. I hope I’m wrong. Keybase has been a useful tool for me so I’d hate to see it go.
Yes, it's been quite useful for me too. Keybase is still a little buggy, especially their Stellar wallets. I'd hate to see anything go wrong.
Keybase is a journey I think. They're trying new things. It's interesting and very ambitious.
@mkb Hm, I don't know either. Any hard facts on the integrity/trustworthiness of Stellar?
