  1. “Signal sold out their user base by creating and marketing a cryptocurrency based solely on their ability to sell the future tokens to a captive audience,” said Bitcoin Core developer Matt Corallo, who also used to contribute to Signal’s open-source software.

  2. tldr; Signal CEO Moxie Marlinspike may have been the former CTO of MobileCoin, a cryptocurrency that Signal recently integrated for in-app payments. MobileCoin CEO Joshua Goldbard called an earlier, nearly identical white paper found online “erroneous” and “not something [he] or anyone at MobileCoin wrote.”

  3. The link leads to a 404 on my desktop. [Here’s the working URL](https://www.coindesk.com/signal-founder-may-have-been-more-than-tech-adviser-mobilecoin).

    I was siding with Moxie until more details come up. This part of the article tells me something isn’t right.

    >A metadata analysis of the papers run by CoinDesk shows that the “erroneous” paper was generated on Dec. 9, 2017, while the “real” paper was generated two days later. 

    I looked at both. They are very similar in structure and verbiage.

    I’m wondering who wrote and published the “erroneous” version. It would be quite a stretch to imagine this paper getting released (first) showing Moxie as the CTO if he never filled that role in some capacity.

    Also wondering why the “real” paper they linked in the article appears to be a scanned/rasterized file, unlike the “erroneous” one which is a typical PDF with vector text.
