Email address is changing to ProtonMail!

Blockchain Australia, like most of our members, values using secure protocols such as PGP email and supporting vendors that take crypto payments.

The board has decided to drop Gmail and use ProtonMail for all emails.  Those who have a ProtonMail address will be able to send encrypted email out of the box.

The email address is of course blockchainaustralia [at] protonmail.com. We will start to reconfigure all our email aliases to this address.
