#hashcat is migrating its IRC presence to Libera Chat
In response to the recent mass resignation of volunteer staff from Freenode we decided to move our IRC presence to Libera Chat, a new IRC network with a similar focus founded by former Freenode staff.

The hashcat project has been present on Freenode for almost ten years, and throughout our tenure we have experienced only dedication, care, and professionalism from the network's volunteer staff. When they feel forced to resign and launch a new network, we follow to continue experiencing the same level of care and dedication. We thank Freenode for the many years of great service and collaboration.

All existing users of the #hashcat channel on Freenode are invited to join us in #hashcat on Libera Chat. Chatting will be disabled in #hashcat on Freenode and its presence will be maintained solely to point users to #hashcat on Libera Chat.
