Has anyone forked the Signal app and pulled out the encryption? If I'm going back to plain sms, I'd like to have an sms app that is at least as decent as Signal.

(Re: Signal apparently going to add cryptocurrency to an sms app)

@zatnosk ... but.... why?
And what?
Does cryptocurrency have a purpose in sending sms?

@zatnosk (the confusion is about the signal adding cryptocurrency pant, not what you were asking, if that wasn't clear)

@zatnosk This was the SMS-app Silence a few years ago.

@kurt they're testing an integration with MobileCoin where Signal is also a wallet for some reason.

@zatnosk Silence is what you want.

I haven't used it, but it does literally what you're asking for.
