PayPal locked down ProtonMail's account allegedly because PayPal isn't sure if the Swiss-based NSA-proof email service 'is legal' and if ProtonMail has 'government approval to encrypt emails.'
Many people had asked for PayPal to be an option, which is why ProtonMail said it used the service at all. People can still contribute via Bitcoin or via credit card directly on Indiegogo and bypass PayPal completely.
