Three years ago today, @letsencrypt issued its first HTTPS certificate in its mission to encrypt the web.
380 million certificates later, it's one of the largest certificate issuers in the world. https://techcrunch.com/2018/09/14/three-years-later-lets-encrypt-now-secures-75-of-the-web/
@eff I bought an SSL cert before I heard of let's encrypt. When I moved my site, I just dumped my paid cert for LE because it seemed like a good thing for the world.
