got bought by

It could be worse, I guess: it looks like Zoom bought them mostly for their know-how and isn't currently planning to do anything with the Keybase service.

That means its future is and remains uncertain, but at least the cryptocurrency direction they experimented earlier didn't pan out: that seemed like it could become actively harmful.


I liked their model of relating identities on different platforms to each other.

Are there a more open alternative that do something similar?

I remember being a thing in the past, did that go anywhere? Or did it get replaced with something else?
