Quoting from https://www.gnupg.org/faq/whats-new-in-2.1.html
GnuPG 2.1.0 already comes with support for signing keys using the
Ed25519 variant of this curve. [..]
The format for an encryption key has not yet been finalized and will be
added to GnuPG in one of the next point releases. Recall that an
encryption subkey can be added to a key at any time.
