I get that sharing is a core thing for this app. I just don't think sharing should have anything to do with my identity. It can be a hash that is shared across any communications platform (even by meat-space, vocally!).

If the goal for the app is for itself to be a tool for identity management, then knowing my email is especially not needed...after all, all identity context is already in the app!

UX should center around ease of sharing some hash value across some other medium, not "searching by identity."

I do honestly empathize with the app creators. But anybody choosing an obscuring email by definition does not want to be identified by email.
