black.com email service

Just come across a new email service (to me) called black.com, based in Austria.
It offers end to end encryption and 50GB storage for 3 pm.
It seems to take a minimalist approach to interface design which I like.
I don't know how long they have been in business but they currently have 9000 users and I managed to get a good email address with just my first name.
I will try them for a month or so and see how things go.
Anyone else here using them ? What do you think ?

It sounds good, but only started this year from what I can gather. It is nice to have a clear usable interface, but I don't need another account.

How do you know that?
And on different point: "Who We Are" link on the home page returns "error_network_error".

The number of users is shown on the black.com homepage at the top left under 'black.com'.

The who we are link was working earlier today but at the moment I am getting the same error.

Nice name I wonder does it offer an alias domain called @blackmail.com

On one hand it's always good to have new E2EE email to provide competition to the existing big guys (ProtonMail, Tutanota etc.) On another hand I'm concerned about the longevity of such new services, there's no way to ensure my primary email (let's say I make them my primary) will last before I use it for my important emails.

Just my 2 cent. That aside I really like their minimalist approach!

Indeed, very nicely designed.
