>>50830984 a lot of bullshit. >With the rise of government monitoring programs, Tox provides an easy to use application that allows you to connect with friends and family without anyone else listening in. While other big-name services require you to pay for features, Tox is totally free and comes without advertising.
The thing is that government care about what your talking but knowing who is talking with is enough for them. People started to say that it leaked your IP address so anyone know when, with who and for how many time you talked with someone. Then it started to be a meme, kids from /v/ and reddit thought they were intelligent to claim that people doesn't know how P2P works.
Then there is the money and audit issue, the fact that the code isn't very clear, and lot of bullshit during the dev of this piece of software.
>>50832975 Don't listen to this. None of that was accurate. The issue was a dev for TOX decided to leak personal information to outside sources and keep data on his personal computer about all of the programs users
>Key developers from the Tox encrypted-chat project recently parted ways with the project's titular leader, after a dispute over the misuse of donated funds. The team has set up a new web site and source-code repository, but the old sites remain in place, too. In addition, the conflict over the project's funds could have a serious impact on Tox's Google Summer of Code (GSoC) projects—not to mention the project's future.
>The root of the disagreement is an accusation that Sean Qureshi, the sole board member of the Tox Foundation, withdrew funds from the Tox Foundation's bank account for personal use, and has refused subsequent calls to rectify the situation. How the Tox project collects and manages donations has, evidently, been a point of contention for quite some time—prompting other developers to depart. But this incident appears to have been the breaking point, which led to an acrimonious split between the parties.
>But, even there, the "entire Tox community" seems to have shrunk in recent months with the departures of Lohle, Winter, and a few other long-time contributors over the very lack of financial transparency that would appear to have made the current situation possible. The new project will likely have a uphill climb ahead of it to re-establish trust, and it may be in a precarious position with its 2015 class of GSoC students. Irungentoo claimed in his blog post to have learned a hard lesson about project governance and finances; wherever it is that Tox goes from here, its story will certainly be a lesson to many other software projects.
