The mobile Dapp exploration service provider has not slowed down the popular collaboration tool.
The state has recently announced that it will stop using the messaging workflow and messaging app. According to Chad Jackson, Status's product manager, the use of Slack violates "practically all" the group's principles, including "privacy, security, transparency, decentralization, inclusiveness, [and] openness".
Even though Jackson has indicated that "Slack was good with" the team, using the app is "creepy" because it is, ironically, to build an alternative service. That alternative is the Status Desktop Dapp, which is "almost ready … once some edge is smoothed out."
Jackson noted that Dapp beta v0.10.0 will be launched in the coming weeks, marking the first iteration of software that would be "a reliable and capable Slack replacement". State & # 39; The desktop team is expected to migrate exclusively to the Dapp, while other teams are encouraged to use the service partially or completely.
By the time most members of the organization are using Desktop Status, Jackson said he could set a 30-day deadline to migrate workflows and finally "greet Slack … and live the our values! " He noted, however, that they would "need to find alternatives to Slack bots, private groups, and other" Slack "features that the team uses.
Status will be the first organization to use the Status service, although it is currently working to integrate with Riot, another collaboration and workflow alternative. After the integration with these two groups, Status seems to move "forward with new improvements".
This is not the first time that Status or another blockchain-based group has separated from a centralized service provider due to differences in values. The state has mainly stopped using Medium and created its own blogging portal. Another project, Aragon, also left Medium due to concerns over censorship.
In addition to the clamor with Slack, the mobile service provider Dapp Mobile has made recent steps in the cryptospace. On August 1, the team announced its work on Nimbus, a client sharding written in the Nim programming language. Shortly thereafter, on 7 August, ETHNews reported that Status had collaborated with Nim's developers, providing them with funding and resources.
