I disagree that it is worse than the X.509’s CA system which has had it’s fair share of controversies because of unreliable CA’s. That’s not something you would want to copy imo. But all in all this is valid critism for once, refreshing.

I don’t think making calls or in person verifications are practical as much. It’s a problem but I haven’t seen a good solution so far.

What about SimpleX Chat method?

Dev discussing it here : SimpleX Chat – the private messenger without any user IDs (not even random numbers) – v5.1 released with message reactions 🚀 and self-destruct passcode : selfhosted

Requires in person or third platform which isn’t ideal. That blocks discoverabily and thus adoption.
