WhatsApp Co-Founder Puts $50M Into Signal To Supercharge Encrypted Messaging
The creators of Signal and WhatsApp Co-Founder Brian Acton announced the launch of the Signal Foundation, which will build and maintain Signal and potentially other privacy-focused apps to come, too. Acton's not only devoting the next phase of his post-WhatsApp career to Signal, but a fair-sized chunk of his WhatsApp billions, too: He's personally injecting $50 million into the project.
The Acceleron team representing Signal Foundation was led by Partner Rob Dang, who previously represented WhatsApp prior to its acquisition by Facebook, and Partners Julie A. Ryan and Elizabeth Chandler.
