Monero [XMR] is one of the top 20 currencies of the crypto-world. The coin has lately been into bug speculations and controversial statements. The users of the coin had been requesting the tie-up for Monero with Tutanota for a while, as the users wanted to donate in XMR.
In 2015, a Reddit discussion was started by a Redditor on Monero’s forum, where the user asked Monero to tie-up with Tutanota for donations.
Amoebatron2, a Redditor posted:
Vote for Tutanota to accept Monero donations!
mWo12, another Redditor commented:
“Already send them email that I’m ready donate some xmr now for tests if they provide some xmr address.”
The proposal proposed in 2015 was finally handled in 2018 by Monero and Tutanota.
On 9th July 2018, Monero tweeted:
“Tutanota now accepts #Monero for donations!”
JaneWiz a crypto enthusiast commented:
“not sure why this integration took 3 yrs?!”
