    We would like to apologize that Tutanota does not support payments with cryptocurrencies at the moment. In 2016 we took a tough decision to give our encrypted webmail client a complete make over to improve performance, which became particularly important for mobile devices. The new Tutanota client is now in beta – https://tutanota.com/blog/posts/secure-mail-public-beta-release – and much faster. The speed improvement was also necessary to allow us to implement a search feature – https://tutanota.com/blog/posts/first-search-encrypted-data – one of the highest voted feature requests.

    Our plan for 2018 is to bring the new client out of beta and to give the iOS and Android apps the same update as well as add the Android app to F-Droid.

    Once we have finished this project, we plan to add support for cryptocurrencies. We will take a close look as to what currencies fit best before simply adding one or two. Please let us know your…

    Multi-signature escrow of Bitcoin makes this quite an easy feature to add. Tutao should simply set up a 1-of-2 Multi-sig Bitcoin address with every customer who wants this functionality. Either the customer or Tutao can move the funds at that address.

    For example: At the beginning of every month Tutao can go to take 1.20 EURO worth of Bitcoin from the mutual address. If the funds are there Tutao can send them to an address that they exclusively control and things operate as normal, if they are not there the service stops. There are many companies (e.g. Coinbase) who would then seamlessly convert Tutao's Bitcoin into whatever currency they desire for accounting purposes.

    There are other configurations of this which could add more value/protection to both sides. Such as using a 2-of-3 address and a "Trusted" 3rd Party as a co-signer for dispute resolution.

    This suggestion is just "Security through Obscurity". It shouldn't matter who knows the username/e-mail address - a good password is sufficient protection. So in that sense, Tutao could make this a premium feature because it is only useful to those who believe it is.

    However, this may be useful for avoiding a DOS attack for a particular user.
