hello, it's me again! have you stopped to think about so many #messengers who pretend to care about the #privacy and security of the user? ok, it's not always really the messenger's fault, or the protocol it uses.
we'll stick #status.im as an example today. good status uses the #eth blockchain... let's see the eth is tracked, this is a disaster for privacy and security.
we have to look at the side of the encryption used in the messages as well, things like: who has the keys is a good example.
This video managed to kill my procrastination and demotivation in thirst for learning, basically gave me motivation.
I almost forgot something... the video is only available in pt_BR.
As many people noticed, www.openbsd.org is down
my mirror is still update twice a day since it's up
People in charge of the website are aware of the issue.
I tried engaging with them once but was not able to get a clear answer on how exactly is it better than what Tor does, privacy wise, nor why exactly blockchain was necessary for creating a peer-to-peer IM and audio/video calls system (something that Tox was able to do without blockchain half a decade ago).
Smells fishy to me, tbh.
