Bruce Schneier on Signal's cryptocurrency adventures:

"""

It’s not just that blockchain is just plain stupid. It’s not even that Signal is choosing to tie itself to a specific blockchain currency. It’s that adding a cryptocurrency to an end-to-end encrypted app muddies the morality of the product, and invites all sorts of government investigative and regulatory meddling: by the IRS, the SEC, FinCEN, and probably the FBI.

@clacke Maybe I'm weird for liking interoperability, but why does Signal need to integrate a specific currency crypto or otherwise? Especially now that we have payto: URIs standardized?
