How can we improve ProtonMail?

XRB Raiblocks/Nano payment option!

Add Rai (soon Nano) as a payment option. Bitcoin transactions fees are now too much, and it may take up to a few hours for a transaction to be confirmed. Unlike BTC there are NO fees for Rai, and transactions are nearly instant!

    To: Jan
    Nano is not any random altcoin, but it has already working support to be added easily on any website or shop and for buying cheap things it is important that payment is for free.
    Monthly premium cost is 5$ and Monero fee is 20-50% of this.
    It could be also another option, but I would prefer feeless and instant Nano payment.

    What is XRB? We need Monero and Lightning Network – not some random altcoins.

    Nano mobile wallet, webwallet as well as Canoe/Nanovault are simple to use. Nano is one of few crypto payment options that has a comparable ease of use to PayPal/Card for online payments.

    No joke I didn’t realize the benefit of Nano until I used it.

    Before getting dismissed. Send it back and forth. No fees and instant. Just can’t beat it.

    Serious comment on adding Nano here.

    Note it is no longer known as Raiblocks or XRB, they rebranded to Nano on 31st January as one can read about here: https://medium.com/@nanocurrency/9101528a7b76

    As many others have touched on, Nano has unmatched technology vs. Bitcoin etc. Many comments already stating it is free and instant. A couple of other major advantages that others have not discussed yet are:

    Nano is environmentally friendly with no mining and minimal proof of work per transaction. Whereas Bitcoin mining consumers more energy than all of Ireland - https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/nov/27/bitcoin-mining-consumes-electricity-ireland

    Nano is extremely scalable with 10,000+ transactions per second, which is about to increase with Universal Blocks. Bitcoin can handle 7, which leads to higher fees as network load increases. Here is a visualization: https://twitter.com/zackshapiro/status/945634097807986688

    Crucially, Nano is extremely easy to implement as a payment option. Brainblocks ( https://brainblocks.io/ ) have become the standard online checkout API for Nano. Test out their Nano payment system on their homepage and you'll immediately see it's much nicer than your current Bitcoin payment system. They provide support if needed via Github, Reddit or Twitter.

    Add Nano. You will have the bleeding edge payment technology of the future on your website. You will have the Nano community behind you. It will be a great marketing play to a target consumer who is likely to be interested in the privacy and security Protonmail offers - cryptocurrency holders. And I, for one, will immediately sign up to Plus when you do. Godspeed.

    So now we have Bitcoin payment with actually just 1$ fee. To set up other competitive payment options would need another few hours not even days. And benefit would even lower fee. When the monthly payment is like 5$ you do not want pay extra 20% more to be cool. But definitely Ok to pay 48$ with 1$ fee. (2%).

    And the way how to pay looks quite complicated for now. They generate for each account own address so than to collect all payment when Bitcoin fee will be bigger than now will cost a lot for ProtonMail.

    So they does not have to set new payment opinion today, but definitely this year.

    You should know that there is high demand to pay in crypto and Nano is one of the option. It is sad that you did not take in review any of this crypto pay option!

    RealUser: Just nano have more that 30k registered fans on reddit and total support is even bigger. So lot of them have also protonmail email, because is popular for crypto users.

    pointless and possibly dangerous for protonmail team. you can transact for just a couple of cents now.

  • Matthew commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would definitely pay for a ProtonMail account if payment was available in other crypto-currencies besides Bitcoin.

    I prefer Steem or Bitshares, but other options would be okay, too.
