This is the future of secure messaging. Decentralized, encrypted, open source, audited, anonymous, p2p, mesh, no phone number required, routed via the TOR network and wysiwyg client.

Only two drawbacks for now: - high battery usage (since no central server pushes the messages, so it is constantly listening) and only for Android currently. Otherwise, awesome project!

OSS, no personal information required, pure P2P, E2EE, Tor (Tor bridge), no 14eyes, security audit passed.
If ephemeral messages is implemented, this messenger is completely perfect.

Great in a crowd or rally, especially when there's no WiFi or cell service- phones relay msgs in creative ways that helps the crowd communicate! Potential is immense!
