Re: Signal - cross-platform secure messaging (64-bit only)

Signal has now adopted a cryptocurrency (with ties to Moxie Marlinspike, the Signal founder) for mobile payments: https://amycastor.com/2021/04/07/signal ... rlinspike/

This looks like a scheme to make money for Marlinspike: he most likely holds some MobileCoin reserves and they have now multiplied in price due to this announcement.

This looks highly shady. I recommend avoiding Signal from now on.
