BITWAGE UNVEILS BITCOIN PAYROLL FOR THE INDIVIDUAL REGARDLESS OF EMPLOYER APPROVAL
Bitwage Bitcoin Payroll for the Individual, BP(i), is now live and in a free private beta for customers to test, changing the game for employee payroll. As most all bitcoin users know, bitcoin is difficult to receive even through services like Circle and Coinbase. No matter how smooth the process may look, it’s still a bit more difficult to get your hands on bitcoin than to grab cash from the ATM. To some, it’s just not simple enough.
Some bitcoin users are urging their employers to pay them in bitcoin rather than their country’s national currency to combat the bitcoin exchange headache, but it takes a lot of convincing. First you have to explain bitcoin, and then evangelize it to your employer, assure them it’s legal and even then there’s still the fear of change present in their mind. It’s a conversation that’s difficult to have, leaving most people without the perk of being paid with the currency they choose.
As all things bitcoin, there’s usually a way to circumvent the gatekeeper and use it as you please close on the horizon. Bitwage unveiled their new way for people to get paid in bitcoin without having to win over their employer today, providing another tool to give power back to the people.
