geneva - Users of the encrypted mail service ProtonMail can now also pay for their account in bitcoins. According to Proton, that should keep users even more anonymous. Moreover, Proton thinks that the bitcoin is safer than the old-fashioned financial world.
Proton, based in Switzerland, is known as a particularly secure email service. The service was set up by scientists from the institute CERN. Besides the mail service, Proton also has its own virtual private network (VPN). For consumers, ProtonMail and ProtonVPN are free, but users have a maximum number of mails per month and limited storage. Those who want more should try to get rid of it.
