They provided a breakdown of their current expenses:
Storage: $1.3 million dollars per year. Servers: $2.9 million dollars per year. Registration Fees: $6 million dollars per year. Total Bandwidth: $2.8 million dollars per year. Additional Services: $700,000 dollars per year. Employees: $19 million dollars per year
So that’s around $14 million per year in infrastructure and $19 million per year in employees. Whats shocking to me is the $6 million per year in fees to send registration codes via SMS or voice calls. They really should consider moving away from using phone numbers as identification.
Anyway, if you are a user of Signal, you should consider making a donation to the foundation. You can donate directly within the signal app (and receive a digital badge in return), or on their website.
