    I chose matrix over signal because of the centralization problem. That being said, I could convert some friends and family to use matrix but a lot of people went to (or already were on it) signal.

    After a few months I decided to install a signal bridge on my matrix server so I guess I’m having kind of best of both worlds, even though it’s not a perfect solution, it is one acomodating both sides.

    EDIT: it really bothered me to use my personal phone number as well so I use an other number I had laying around

      Well the phone number requirement is one of the best parts of signal IMO. Makes it much easier to find your contacts that are also using signal. Plus there’s no account to create.

      I just use both and its been fine for me.
