How can we improve ProtonMail?

Accept Bitcoin on the Lightning Network!

The Lightning Network is in beta, but it allows for instant payments (no confirmations) and almost 0% fees, provided the user has a channel open. You already accept Bitcoin... and the Lightning Network is a major upgrade to way people will use BTC to make payments. If you do it soon, you will also get a P.R. boost, as it will inevitably be mentioned in the Bitcoin media.

    Bitcoin and LN patents would not only allow for great PR to your services, it would also allow me to obtain an upgraded account without having to give anyone my name or credit card information. Thus allowing for more anonimity.

    Some countries like India are aresting people for buying/selling bitcoin.
    Bring it on.
    More Anonimity

    I had emailed support literally a few days ago asking them to add LN. Glad to find this vote.

    I haven't used pronton mail before but would start using it if you accepted lightning :P

    Lighting obfuscates payments. This is in direct line with your mission statement. PROCEED!!!!

    What a terrible idea. Please don't pander to the Lightning Network nonsense. People on are organizing a campaign to cast votes on this issue. Please don't encourage this type of brigading.

    Your resources will be much better invested in accepting more cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin BCH.

    Would love to see Protonmail support Lightning! This would enhance privacy and reduce transaction fees. Please don't waste any time supporting the scam coin bcash.
