My opinion is still pretty much the same. I'm not freaking out and calling them names, but taking on a project of this scale when they still have so much work to do on their original scope of messaging (like decoupling from phone numbers for one) does not seem like a smart idea. And the point about inviting regulatory and legal scrutiny still stands. https://signal.org/blog/update-on-beta-testing-payments/
