Privacy Chat App Signal now takes donations in Bitcoin, and other crypto. The nonprofit behind the privacy-focused client now accepts a number of cryptocurrencies, from Chainlink to Zcash.
The site is now taking the two most popular cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum, and also the altcoins like Litecoin, Chainlink, and Zcash, which is a so-called “privacy coin.”
Signal works a little similar to Telegram, another popular messaging service, in that it’s end-to-end encrypted, it means that messages can only be read by the sender and receiver. It is in contrast to apps like Facebook Messenger, which can access your data and use it to effectively sell ads on its platform.
The Signal Foundation has been launched in 2018 by Moxie Marlinspike, who is responsible for the Signal app, together with Brian Acton, who created WhatsApp.
Elon Musk is a supporter of Signal, and so is Twitter’s Jack Dorsey.
In the previous year, after the news of the police killing of George Floyd, Signal had introduced a face-blurring tool that was designed to protect the identity of the protestors.
It has also been reported that Signal is now actively exploring different options for developing its own cryptocurrency.
