Integrate Incognito into Signal (PoC)

I would release without this feature and collect feedbacks from Signal users to see if they what it and what would they prioritize up.

I think communication with real users is really important.

They aren’t happy if forks using their infrastructure. It isn’t decentralised. :grin: They don’t like it if forks using Signal in their names such as “Incognito Signal”.

But I replied as follows https://community.signalusers.org/t/anonymous-p2p-payments-for-your-signal-from-a-talk-to-action/18530/15

Hey,
it is late in the morning. :crazy_face:

We launched our website today. To be honest it is our first version, some content is missing. But we will update continuously the website.

We’ve integrated a live chat on the website to get in touch with developers, give instant support and etc.

Hey,
we are making progress in the Android sdk of Incognito Pay Kit.

In addition I want to say that our GitHub account of IncognitoPayKit has been hidden from public by an incident by mistake of GitHub spam bots.

I’m working to get the account public again. :roll_eyes: Maybe it is time for a decentralised GitHub. :smiley:

Our big website update launches this week too. Our designer she did an awesome job explaining our product

Cheers,
Andi

@Ducky nice finding. We are making a real product video now with music. :slight_smile:

GitHub had continue blocked our account. :roll_eyes: I contact enterprise sales to hop on a paid account.

I want ask you if it sounds reasonable to build a fully working app like PayPal using the Incognito Pay Kit and extend with some more nice ui and features? It shouldn’t compete with the Incognito Crypto Wallet. But it should onboard unexperienced people into Incognito and offer to pay their bills of dinners with their friends. In addition it might be a better showcase for you guys when you talk to other app owners to integrated Incognito. I am happy to get feedback.

Short update about my GitHub issue. They replied today morning. But didn’t remove the flag of my account. So I still cannot access the codebase. I am in contact with their support. Unfortunately they need ~5weeks for their first reply. :roll_eyes:

Unbelievable! GitHub gave me interim access to my account to move my repositories to my paid enterprise account. It feels like: Give us money and we like you. :ghost:

I will dive into the code again and make the PoC available over the weekend.

I’m sorry for the inconvenient but it was out of my hands. :pensive:

It might take some time until the Incognito Signal messenger app is processed by App Store Connect.

In the meantime I record a new demo video and I look for further improvements.

@Chucky I never tried this. :grimacing: But let’s give it a try. Signal needs a phone number. You can use any phone number you own. It doesn’t matter if you run Signal on a phone or in a simulator. I just wait for Apple to complete the review. Can you PM your Apple ID?

Cheers,
Andi

Yes, I am aware about MobileCoin for some months. Again it shows how CEO driven Signal is built. :sweat_smile:
Independent of Signal there will be many ways to simplify crypto payments and give everyone access to this. Therefore our pay kit is built as a framework for iOS 11 and
newer. :muscle:

I really appreciate your support!

Cheers,
Andi

Review of the Incognito Signal iOS app is in process again. They asked me to provide a demo video.

I provided this demo video.

We are dependent on this review to activate beta testing.

In addition I fixed a bug to pass over contacts who have a signal account.

Cheers,
Andi
