SourceCred

Discord => Keybase?

Not sure if anyone here cares, but apparently Discord has terrible privacy

Keybase is kind of like Discord when it comes to features (public/private chats and lots of teams). In addition Keybase is e2e encrypted, gives users a cryptographic key they can use to sign data, and creates a web of trust with contacts. A lot of the Aragon teams use it and it’s awesome. Might be a good option instead of Discord for more casual/real-time chats and things?

I’m open to this idea; Keybase would be better aligned with the vision + trajectory of SourceCred than Discord.

However, switching communications platforms tends to be pretty disruptive, so it’s not something that should be done lightly.

Here’s what I propose: let’s wait until we are ready to build a cred integration into chat (which clearly needs to happen eventually. :stuck_out_tongue:). At that point, we’ll do a deeper review of Keybase vs Discord (vs other options like Matrix). Whichever one we like best, we’ll build the cred integration for SourceCred into that service. And that will naturally inspire everyone to want to move. :slight_smile:
