@polarhive I don't think Amazon will deplatform Signal.It brings them too much money with the recent growth.But we should think about the question if we want to indirectly support Amazon which is known for collecting tons of data and exploiting its workers in the warehouses.I don't,therefore Signal is a no go for me 👎
@lps @polarhive You're right that they're currently working on their own protocol.The main advantage is that it will make multi-device support available again.But it's already usable with the Signal protocol and works really good and reliable.There's no reason to wait.And no,you don't need crypto to participate.It can be used totally for free.I think they're planning to include a crypto wallet into the app but it will be optional,just like in Telegram.
@polarhive This whole thing has really shown the true colors of just about everyone involved with technology and the internet. Eight years ago was the public blackout for SOPA due to concerns of government pressure on companies to block/censor content it doesn't like.
Today is cheering for government politicians pressuring companies to block/censor content it doesn't like.
It's like everyone collectively lost the ability to think past 'Step 1' of where this eventually leads to.
