Berty is a secure peer-to-peer messaging app that works with or without internet access, cellular data or trust in the network - berty/berty
Their protocol whitepaper - https://berty.tech/docs/protocol
And the FAQ for those looking for the basics - https://berty.tech/faq
I like the warnings in the whitepaper for those who are looking for IP anonymity (having those upfront is quite nice imo), interested to see how this shapes up (especially since multiple devices can be logged in).
Shame it doesnt have an open sign up
Didn’t we have dozens of these apps (Secure Scuttlebutt comes to mind) and nothing sticked? What’s different this time?
I don’t see anything wrong with having more options. These apps have a fairly niche use case, but they’re very useful for things like protests where you don’t want to be tracked and can’t rely on cell networks.
