accept bitcoin for premium upgrade
Our banks and credit card companies don't need to know about our super private email accounts.
We are working hard to add Bitcoin support for Premium by the end of 2017.
If you want to speed up our development, you can donate. This helps us to employ more developers.
Thank you very much for your patience and your continuous support!
It would be wonderful to have this feature. I've been waiting for this forever. Couldn't you just integrate bitpay like everyone else does?

I cannot pay premium with bitcoin. It stills only shows either credit card or paypal. Please update the upgrade to premium function inside the email interface to include BITCOIN payment.
Got that premium promotion in my inbox. Sorry, no crypto currency = no paid crypto email.
And by crypto currency, I specifically don't mean Bitcoin only. You pretty much missed the train with Bitcoin. Or perhaps, to put a more positive spin on it, congratulations, you saved the 20 minutes it takes to integrate a Bitpay or Coinbase widget. By now, Bitcoin lost its usability as payment network. I moved on to other alternatives. Since you're taking forever anyway, do it right and offer other currencies if you want my money.

You should consider adding GloBee as a payment service. They would alow Monero Payments as well!
This feature is Completed, I have paid my premium accout on bitpay. Please close it.
If you take THAT long to implement a simple payment widget, it better has support for usable e-cash cryptos like Bitcoin Cash or Dash when it launches. I divested my Bitcoin - fees too high, confirmations too long.
This would greatly improve user experience, myself included

we already accept Bitcoin for donations:
Thanks for your support!!
Judging by the comments on this post, it would probably be a good idea to, when you finally accept bitcoin as payment, send out an email to all subscribers letting them know of the new feature. I know I would donate if the option was available. In the meantime, thanks a lot for all you do.
+1 No BTC no Premium.
I even offered to share my bitcoin implementation to accept bitcoin more quickly buy they refused... What's going on there on Tutanota? We need make Bitcoin happen sooner rather than later, I can't wait forever to get a reliable email service (Premium).
Please just take my bitcoin!
Signed up today. Attempted to upgrade and pay by bitcoin and found option not available. Hence I am here! So you know, just consider this a +1 :) Money is waiting for you...!
@TutanotaSupport You all could easily secure the funds with Multisig wallets if you are worried that your own team would potentially steal bitcoin. "Copay Me" may be a good option as you can make it to where like 12 people have to confirm before it'll send bitcoin where ever. I want to support your team but i cannot until I receive an option to pay with bitcoin.
I want to pay you for premium. Please let me
Been a Tutanota user for almost 2 years now. From day 1 I have wanted to buy into Premium. You then stated that bitcoin integration was imminent. So I waited. And waited. And still no sign of this integration.
Seriously, why do you not want my money???
What kind of bizarre attitude towards customers is this - you do not want us to buy your products? Yet, even while refusing us to buy your main product, you keep begging us to donate to you? WTF?
Hell no. There is zero chance I am using an email service with a "privacy" claim, and then compromise that privacy completely by using Paypal, CC etc. Basically, if I buy Premium, as a reward for this I get my privacy ruined - are you nuts?
Still would love to support the service (and get the Premium benefits on top of that, as the icing on the cake) - and NO, I refuse to "donate" to a company that clearly don't want (or need) me to buy their product.
Oh well. Let me know when you want my money for Premium and you will have them.
The idea of having cryptocurrency to pay stuff online is great. I can't wait for it. If should be there when this service was launched.
But Bitcoin by design isn't private for many reasons. If you buy coins in an exchange and send here... the transaction is registered forever in the blockchain and it links your account in the exchange (which they have all the data from you, ID etc) with tutanota wallet.
So far the best coin seems to be ZCash or one of it's forks, zclassic or zencash.
Frankly, I no longer believe you - this has been your answer for several years. It now sounds like spin and you have no intention to offer the feature. What's so special about Tutanota without privacy? Nothing.
Donated via BTC and voted for the above worthy cause. ;-D
