I've been wondering the same thing for a while. The closest iteration of this I've come across so far is Session (https://getsession.org)
It routes messages through an Onion/TOR-like network of nodes that others volunteer to run. In return for running those nodes, they generate the Oxen cryptocurrency, similar to how mining Bitcoin works.
This way, it's not fully centralized like WhatsApp/Telegram/etc, but also solves the issues of devices directly communicating, like what happens when the app isn't running on the phone.4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 7 Nov 2021

Yeah I was confused when I opened up the link as well. This is basically a meta-bug complaining about why the original bug was closed: https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Desktop/issues/4461
But as the other comments here point out, it's a perfectly reasonable response from Signal's part.3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 25 Nov 2021

Nowadays they use SqlCipher for database encryption, but the encryption key is stored right next to it, so I'm not sure what the point of this is. The encryption didn't always work properly in the past, and Signal also doesn't have any mechanism of verifying that the data is indeed encrypted.
