The Matrix protocol powers an open network for secure, decentralized communication.

From the home page:

Matrix is an open source project that publishes the Matrix open standard for secure, decentralised, real-time communication, and its Apache licensed reference implementations.

Maintained by the non-profit Foundation, we aim to create an open platform which is as independent, vibrant and evolving as the Web itself… but for communication.

As of June 2019, Matrix is out of beta, and the protocol is fully suitable for production usage.

Matrix is great for real-time communications, including voice and video. It features end-to-end encryption (based on the algorithm popularized by Signal), and does a lot of bridging.

The bridging aspect might be something to look at for Moa, including using Matrix as the bridge into specific systems.
