It's finally here, teasing is over:

I'm excited to launch #keyoxide today!

#FOSS solution for easy encryption, signature verification and decentralized identity proofs!

I've been in favor of #DeleteKeybase but I never had something to offer as an alternative. Now I do :)

But it's not an alternative to Keybase. It's alternative to couple of Keybase features.

It's like I'd say that my is an alternative to Github (not even an alternative to IRL).

@skobkin yes! This is correct. And from the feedback I've gathered, this is a replacement for enough features (only three) for many people to "switch". Turns out encryption, signature verification and identity are the core features most.

But you are right! If you enjoy keybase's chat, git and/or wallet, keyoxide is not for you! That's why we should always have choice :)


@yarmo I agree. But I think that open (and free) projects should not use deceptive marketing like some commercial (and proprietary) products do.
Just IMHO though.

@skobkin agreed and I hope you'll believe me when I say that this was not my intention. I'm doing all the programming, writing guides and marketing on my own. I'll update the "keybase migration" guide to more clearly reflect that I'm only replacing certain aspects. The FAQ already states the lack of certain functions

@yarmo Yes, I saw keybase-related page on the site itself. I was just somewhat surprised by the post in Mastodon :)
