Molly.im project will not meet 'proposed deadlines' according to lead dev valldrac

The Molly.im1 project will not be able to meet any of the proposed deadlines, according2 to the lead developer of the Android Signal fork, Oscar valldrac Mira3:

[..] one major issue at this time is the current drop in value of Monero [..] It is preventing us from outsourcing some engineering tasks as we had initially planned. Unfortunately, we are not going to meet any of our proposed deadlines as a result of these road blocks.

The team is still working on Monero integration, while exploring alternate funding methods, according to today’s update.

Apparently no CCS payouts have been claimed to date.

To learn more about the project, read the January 2022 status update4, the associated CCS proposal5 and consult the initial Monero Observer report6.

This is an ongoing story and the report will be updated when new information is available.
