Since we were talking about lightning in today's call, I wonder if this new application might be relevant or at least of interest in this conversation: https://sphinx.chat/ Sphinx Chat uses lightning nodes as the "identity" in chat groups and the key pairs associated with those nodes to encrypt and decrypt conversations. There are a couple of other similar attempts currently under active development but this has been the smoothest, most polished attempt I've seen so far (Whatsat is another one).

Once established, the messaging channel can be used for many protocols, including chat.  However, beyond the simple "basic message" protocol, no chat app protocols have been created on DIDComm.
