Are they really building a cryptocurrency into signal? I would have to leave then...
@timkrief They use it for payments, not for the conversations itself.
@HugeGameArtGD yes, and?
@timkrief I think a bundled cryptocurrency service is not a reason not to use signal: https://www.osnews.com/story/133275/signal-embeds-shady-cryptocurrency-in-its-service/ Because signal is open source, someone could just create a new fork without the feature or maybe even just disable it in the app settings. Of course a separate app would have been a better approach I guess but it's currently only available in the UK anyway.
@HugeGameArtGD the servers are centralized and I don't want to support that anyway.
