Proton Wallet - Crypto
24/7 Secure Crytocurrency Storage
Offers easy varifiaction for purchases
Many of the users of protonmail are interested in alternative forms of social and financial expressions. A crypto wallet developed on the peer to peer fundamental tech of protonmail mail will be a great benefit to us as users.
A simple software wallet to store bitcoin and maybe other cryptos would be really useful. There are many wallet apps available but it is very difficult to find one that can be trusted.

My title is confusing. It's actually suggesting a "non-custodial" wallet on proton's servers
I said 'custodial' because I bad-edited and meant to say "Proton-Custodial"
Ugh. I shouldn't have even used that word.

An open-source and mature privacy cryptocurrency that is hosted in proton's cloud, specifically in Switzerland, in order for it to serve, legally, as a type of one's own swiss bank account.
This is not for evading tax laws--though if I'm honest it enables this (people are responsible for their own actions)--but for resisting fiscal-censorship from increasingly censorious and manipulative governments.
Sometimes, money IS speech. For example, in political donations, or funding activism campaigns.
We've seen recently how governments have censored people's speech by restricting their ability to give money to certain creators on patreon or through paypal, in the name of 'fighting misinformation / disinformation or 'malinformation' (which is true information that undercuts the government's kontrol narratives). We've seen how the Canadian government has fought people's speech by blocking their bank accounts for participating in the truck protests, OR by attempting to fund the same.
We've seen govs intervene by forcing private third party social media and crowdfunding platforms into blocking certain actions. The terms of service agreements on these platforms are such that people who have donated cannot get their monies back; that money is effectively 'seized' by the platform if the platform decides to 'cancel' a fundraising drive.
This is all nonsense
Of course, cryptocurrency is NOT a cure to these things, as it has no such idea as a 'chargeback'. This makes people singularly responsible for their volutary agreements; and as such, this is going to force stronger contracts between parties.
But one thing that it will absolutely STOP is the government's ability to proxy-censor, proxy-block people from being able to transact with one another, and that's a good thing.
And furthermore, governments hate Monero (Dero, Pirate chain and the like) because it's a TRUE private cryptocurrency that uses a kind of internal transaction scrambling black box to purposefully obfuscate transactions.
That makes it nearly impossible for governments to interfere with our transactions. Its' going to force governments to get warrants, to find other evidence and do real police work to find bad guys, but it protects those who are not doing anything wrong. Its security being the double edged sword it is (also enables crime / criminals), also protects from 'official confabulation of finances in order to frame or defame their political enemies'---which as we've seen is increasingly a problem...and will be even more a problem with the introduction of AI superfakes and confabulated video / audio recordings.
Thanks for reading this and thank you kindly for your consideration of these topics.

can you create a cryptocurrency wallet bitcoin ethereum etc. there is a lack of a good open source cryptocurrency wallet on the market.
I am also interested in single sign on with Ethereum (#1 above). A competitor, Skiff, is offering this service, but they have not been around for long so I'd prefer using Protonmail if possible.
Web3 wallet from Proton. ProtonWallet. Like Metamask but better and even more simple and more safe. And blockchain drive.. from proton like Storj. And decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) based affiliate marketing system with good commission system and commission paid straight to ProtonWallet immediately after customer have made payment to Ptoton to get more and new customers (Marketing system built little bit like this with couple of changes: https://app.metfi.io/refc/tuke )
PLEASE DO NOT SUPPORT CRYPTO IN PROTON!
Bitcoin’s Impacts on Climate and the Environment | 2021-09-20
Bitcoin is thought to consume 707 kwH per transaction. In addition, the computers consume additional energy because they generate heat and need to be kept cool. This is more than all of Argentina consumes, or more than the consumption of Google, Apple, Facebook and Microsoft combined. And it is only getting worse because miners must continually increase their computing power to compete with other miners. Moreover, because rewards are continually cut in half, to make mining financially worthwhile, miners have to process more transactions or reduce the amount of electricity they use. As a result, miners need to seek out the cheapest electricity and upgrade to faster, more energy-intensive computers. Between 2015 and March of 2021, Bitcoin energy consumption increased almost 62-fold. According to Cambridge University, only 39 percent of this energy comes from renewable sources, and that is mostly from hydropower, which can have harmful impacts on ecosystems and biodiversity.
Me encantaria que crearais una wallet fria para bitcoin.
sois los mejores en seguridad y estoy seguro seriais capaces de crear la mejor wallet fria.

Has this idea been considered by the development team? I think it fits well with the product offerings!
Along these same rails, ProtonMail could be the next PayPal by letting users attach cryptocurrency addresses to their ProtonMail emails. "send the bitcoin to firstname.lastname@example.org" It would be so cool to send messages *and money by private email.
It is unfortunate that some of these comments go back to 2017, and ProtonMail has not yet adopted a firm position with regards to crypto currency wallets. Very unfortunate in-that due to the nature of your already established business, it should be relatively easy to do.
a spreadsheet with an addition feature that makes it very easy to track ones investment in crypto, fiat currency, household expenses, important wealth management products
the spreadsheet, could link to price oracles and currency oracle, for up to the market results in value of crypto assets.
the feature to add coins listed on uniswap and other exchanges or creating a custom place holder coin with the ability to get data from a market oracles with the ability track yield on coins in Defi
we live in a time of money printing and possible invisible inflation, by tracking gold and comparing it to our asset value we could see how we are doing in relation to inflation, it would be great if this personal asset spread sheet should pump out this information, using local value markers that could be automatically assigned using market indicators or imputed manually
This is much needed! Struggling to make payments currently using a credit card due to browser blocking it !!!
1) Login with Ethereum wallet (Metamask..)
2) Send mail to any eth address
BTC LTC NMC PPC ETH DOGE RDD XMR etc. PPC and Eth can be excluded. but the possibility to register .bit domains with proton can resolve the situation about anonymity.
Improvement to deposit funds in the account (or can be a revolution) and letting the possibility to begin a new manner of bank stocking. So, To integrate until 12 wallets for crypto currencies with the possibility of the owner to have the private keys of wallets. More details if interested.

I think protonmail hosting an in app crypto currency wallet would be a huge win. People already trust protonmail to store communication why not expand the platform to include crypto currency wallets?
In today's world there is a big problem of bitcoin storage. ProtonMail has established itself as a reliable service. You are already accepting bitcoins for payment. But that's not enough. Let's make it possible for users to store bitcoins on their wallets. From these purses they will be able to pay for the services of ProtonMail and transfer to other places, at their discretion. It was very comfortable and would add a lot of protonmail stars. You would have had a great commercial success because you are reliable and honest people.
