@matrix congrats guys! That’s great news and will definitely help grow privacy friendly alternatives I myself switched from discord and personally am like matrix more due to its encryption and customization

Why did Status previously provide $5M? Aren't they developing a different chat protocol using gossip? Hopefully Matrix and Status will be able to communicate easily and increase the network!

@rumblestiltskin Who are "Status"? What do they have to do with Automattic investing in New Vector?



It is a project that came out of ethereum. They have a chat app that uses gossip protocol to send messages. They also have integrated spending erhereum and use of dapps into their app.

@rumblestiltskin Status invested $5M in New Vector to bootstrap the company and generally support decentralisation. We've also helped each other out a bunch on our respective comms projects :)
