Tutonata Tests Cryptocurrency For Payments – Encrypted Email Service
Tutanota, a provider of an encrypted email service, has begun to accept donations in bitcoin, ether, bitcoin cash and monero in order to test payment processing using cryptocurrencies.
The German firm noted that it wants to support decentralized payment systems that are independent of centralized processors such as credit card companies and banks.
The company believes decentralized payments could support an anonymous email service for human rights activists, whistleblowers, and journalists who require special protection.
Tutanota had originally planned to offer cryptocurrency acceptance last year for its professional and premium-level plans. It was however postponed on account of the need to recreate the company’s encrypted email client to upgrade performance and add features more rapidly.
