A good team-based productivity app with end-to-end encryption

Overall, Keybase is a great piece of software with incredible features (more than a medium user would need) and the app is well integrated with the Zoom Meetings app itself. Up until now I have had a good experience with Keybase and I can easily recommend it to anyone who wants a software focused productivity and team-based.

Pros

What I like the most about Keybase is the end-to-end encryption. It is definitely a critical feature every chat app must respect! I firstly found this app on the Zoom App Marketplace and I got rapidly convinced by its features: the ease of file sharing, the teams I can join and create and even the crypto wallet available on this app! I'm really glad I found this app and I can easily recommend it.

Cons

If I had to point any negative characteristic about Keybase, it would be the layout of the app. I would like to see a different User Interface (UI) more intuitive and user-friendly. Despite of that, I don't have any other commentary on this software, since I never had any bad experience with it, neither did I need to contact its support team.

Messaging, cloud storage, git and a crypto currency wallet in one place with the power of encryption

Keybase is a good platform for those who are concerned about security, more notably for business people.

Pros

Keybase is an all in one place for team collaboration similar to Slack, cloud storage with up to 250GB of free space, a git version control system and a cryptocurrency wallet (stellar lumens) all with the power of 256-bit encryption technology. This means anything that Keybase holds is nearly impossible to decrypt (even if the servers are hacked). You can also prove your social media identity using Keybase (not account verification). The chat feature is best if you are concerned about the security of your messages especially if you want to manage a team. You can also create sub-teams and channels like in slack. The cloud storage falls under three category, public files - which is publicly visible, private files - which we can use to store files privately and finally team files - visible to a group of people who are members of a team created by us. The storage is not expandable as of now, but the company is planning to introduce purchasable storage soon. Unlike other git repository hosting services, Keybase' git is fully encrypted which makes it more secure. Keybase also comes with an integrated Stellar lumens cryptocurrency wallet through which we can also send other popular cryptocurrencies. They also have a really good documentation. The way they demonstrate their features is really cool. Another cool feature is that we can also host simple website in the public folder. The website could be accessed under yourusername.keybase.pub domain name.

Cons

It could be a really strange application for those who are not aware of cryptography and encryption technologies. Keybase seems a bit intimidating at first. It takes some time to get used to the features and functionalities. You may find it difficult to find your contacts on Keybase due to the same reasons. Also sometimes the application seems to slow down a bit when encrypting big files.
