What is the status of this feature request? I may have a simple solution to implementing this. I am no coding expert but it should be easy to essentially add a wallet to each account that requests one and users can deposit into their wallet and when payments are due tutanota can just pull form the wallet the cost at a daily or weekly average market rate. This would be as simple as integrating a wallet attribute to the user, a daily call onto the api of coinmarketcap or any of the exchanges and a payment confirmation check. Most the code for this already exists. I know tutanota is busy with other features but some of us would like access to access these features via crypto payments and this really shouldn't be that difficult. If the issue is on the backend there are numerous services for exchanging crypto for fiat that have buisness integration in mind with their product or this could be automated on many of the current exchanges with verified accounts.

1- go to walletgenerator.net create a bunch of addresses with their keys.
2- pair 1 address with 1 account and give it to the user
3- check the payment status with known blockchain apis (you can check with block.io 250 addrs per request). when payment confirmed, add funds to the account
4- when you have bunch of coins, write your "feature" and import the keys to your own wallet.
5. profit.

paying with credit card for a secure&private email service does not make sense.

As Dagli said “paying with credit card for a secure&private email service does not make sense.” please sort this out as matter of priority.

It's on the roadmap.... The road is long! No estimation given... since 2017 it has been promised that this would be implemented.

What's the current status on this? I would love to have this option to make Tutanota 100% private with full features. I think this is basically the only thing that Tutanota is lacking when it comes to a fully private email system.

Much better to run a Bitcoin Core node in-house. The RPC interface will handle address generation, querying balances, etc. Third party address generation is inherently insecure.

Edit: this also paves the way for running a Lightning node. Using LND to generate Lightning Invoices on the fly is a doddle!

Paying with a surveillance coin that doesn't have an opaque ledger does not make sense.

Monero is the only cryptocurrency in the top 20 that isn't a surveillance coin.

Please allow Monero as a payment option.

Did I include or exclude any coin specifically? The request is implementation of cryptocurrencies as a payment option. We want the same thing...

Implementing a crypto payment option is NOT a 3 year job, unless you are writing your own crypto coin from zero. This is my point on that comment.
