Bitcoin Cash Payment Option!
Bitcoin transactions fees are now too much, and it may take up to a few hours for a transaction to be confirmed. There's a payment system, which is nearly same of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash. Its devs have a better vision "low fees, 1 block (10 minutes) transaction confirm time." If you haven't heard of it, here (https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/a/58969/38618) you can see that many wallets support it.
We plan on adding additional payment options in the forward.

Please! My banks wont let me pay you and I cant use BTC because its too expensive and slow. Please accept Bitcoin Cash! Im not even ABLE to give you money until you do
Okay, so this has been 2 years later since last response from ProtonMail Team. When are you guys going to add additional payment options? In particular, Dash and Bitcoin Cash?
I was browsing the upgrade options, am interested in getting support for two domains (trying to de-google). If protonmail accepted BCH I'd upgrade right now, will upgrade immediately if/when it's added. I came here to suggest adding it and it looks like it's been suggested a lot before. 0-conf on BCH is trustable after several seconds, it really is a great payment option!
Most of these comments can be distilled down to:
"I would value your product and vision if..."
A. you help us launder our cryptocurrency.
B. you spend your investors fiat currency on providing fungibility for our contentious cryptocurrency
If you have BHC and want a Proton account, its fallacy to claim that direct BHC is the only way, many exchanges support BCH to fiat.
I am sure there are more than enough cryptography experts at Proton to adequately assess the value proposition of which, if any, cryptocurrency they will accept.

I was about to suggest BCH as a payment option, but it seems it's already been suggested many times, and the team has even said it's planned.
I am just commenting to emphasis the importance of this, with CashShuffle and CashFusion BCH is one of the best cryptos for privacy, and make a great combination for protonmail.
I will upgrade my account as soon as it's added.

It's now been two years and what looks to me like a relatively straightforward decision has actully been taken and this is currently "planned" - but no action has been taken since 2018.
It would be good to get some feedback and know why this hasn't been implemented yet.
I have asked many times in the past and recently wanted to start my new business on proton as the email and future calendar platform. However I found another provider that supports bitcoin cash. Bitcoin cash has significant although not perfect privacy options (monero and dash are certainly not perfect either) through CashShuffle and soon CashFusion protocols. Hopefully proton will get there some day.
Please add Bitcoin Cash, I have recently bought a VPN through a different supplier partly because they offer BCH payments and other providers don't.
please add Bitcoin cash (ProtonMail Plus subscriber)
Please add bitcoin cash (BCH). The Bitcoin (BTC) fees are exorbitant and transacations take longer. BTC is the past. BCH is the future. (ProtonMail Plus subscriber)
This needs to happen, I will pay my monthly fee every time with Bitcoin Cash if it's supported. I might even upgrade to a yearly.
It can not be fastest and cheapest and never will be! Add bcash is pointless.
Adding Bitcoin Cash would be AWESOME!!

Why not accept multiple forms of currency rather than putting all your eggs into one basket, especially in this very volatile speculative market?
Don't let the propoganda fool you, Bitcoin Cash is the real Bitcoin, and it's the best cryptocurrency.
I upgrade to apaid account if implement Bitcoin Cash. It is the true Bitcoin.
bitcoin cash is bitcoin. it's the fastest cheapest coin. most decentralized coin. most reliable coin. most used coin. there are ways to use it privately.
