Kim Dotcom Is Building A Super-Secure Encrypted Email Service

• Business Insider

There's been a spat of privacy-based communications companies shutting down of their own volition rather than cooperate with governmental surveillance measures.

Two heavyweight names in the encrypted email space, Lavabit and Silent Mail, have taken themselves out of commission in what many consider an honorable act of "privacy seppuku." They did this because they preferred to go out of service rather than allow the government access to their system.

This is similar (but maybe more so) than what Blockchain at has done with the online Bitcoin wallets that they host for folks. They don't really even hold the info that encrypts and decrypts the wallets. Only the user has it on his computer. Yet, Blockchain holds the wallets. And there is a lot more that they do for security and freedom of use for the user/wallet holder.
