A lot of people are switching from #WhatsApp to #Signal these days. I don't like where it's going. Messaging should be as decentralised as e-mail is, otherwise we're heading to the same problem as we had with WhatsApp. Who guarantees that Signal won't be acquired by somebody we dislike in the future? For example, Matrix is a better alternative as its decentralised protocol guarantees that it can't be fully owned by anyone. (And there are possibly more options.)

@jaklt Hey there! As Signal is official a nonprofit organization it can't be sold/bought that easily. I'm also waiting (since Jabber/XMPP - Sadly, the mainstream did not jump on it T_T) for a decentralized solution - Let's see if Antox will become *the* alternative by the end of 2021 :) Jami is also decentralized and works pretty well. Have a great day and best regards Phil
