there are some big security and performance holes in the DAG resolution algorithm, but hopefully more funding will give them the resources to revisit some of their dangerous assumptions.

If you are aware of security holes in the DAG resolution algorithm please let us know asap at security@matrix.org as per https://matrix.org/security-disclosure-policy/.

As far as we know, we have addressed all known issues in the original algorithm - which is why we have declared ourselves out of beta. Matrix 1.0 has an entirely new state resolution alg, as well as many other security fixes.

Performancewise there are still issues, but we know what needs to be done to fix them, and this will be landing shortly now 1.0 is out.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
