Keybase moves to stop onslaught of spammers on encrypted message platform

Ars Technica - 59 min 15 sec ago

Enlarge / All scammers, all the time: my Keybase message inbox.

Keybase started off as co-founder and developer Max Krohn's "hobby project"—a way for people to share PGP keys with a simple username-based lookup. Then Chris Coyne (who also was cofounder of OkCupid and SparkNotes) got involved and along came $10.8 million in funding from a group of investors led by Andreesen Horowitz. And then things got increasingly more complicated. Keybase aims to make public-key encryption accessible to everyone, for everything from messaging to file sharing to throwing a few crypto-coins someone's way.

But because of that level of accessibility, Keybase faces a very OkCupid kind of problem: after drawing in people interested in easy public-key crypto-based communications and then drawing in blockchain lovers with its partnership with (and funding from), Keybase has also drawn in spammers and scammers. And that has brought a host of alerts and messages that have made what was once a fairly clear communications channel into one clogged with unwanted alerts, messages, and other unpleasantry—raising a chorus of complaints in Keybase's open chat channel.

It turns out there's a reason spell check keeps wanting to tell me that Keybase should be spelled "debase."

We could all use a little more help around our home, and luckily now there's a lot of tech that can lend a hand. So that’s where we’re looking for our latest holiday gift guide. There are a plethora of smart home devices that can do everything from lock your doors, vacuum your carpets, or keep a watchful eye over your possessions while you're away.

Wading through the ocean of smart home tech isn't easy—and, admittedly, much of the smart home space is not worth your time or your money. However, we've tried (and personally purchased) many home tech devices that actually do deliver on what they promise. These items make keeping your home how you like it much easier.

Not all of the home tech we recommend falls into the large and nebulous category of "the Internet of Things," either—some are kitchen appliances, home speakers, gaming accessories, and other devices that most people primarily use in the home in order to make that space feel more like our own. So after a lot of lived-in testing time, here's all of the home tech that we think would make great gifts this holiday season.
