Japanese Company Will Pay Employees’ Salary With Bitcoin
GMO Internet will pay a part of the salaries of workers who want to work with Bitcoin. GMO Internet, which offers bitcoin exchange and web-related services, will begin paying salaries via Bitcoin in February. An employee said, “Employees can get their salaries via Bitcoin if they want will take it, I think it is a good investment for us.”
The initiative initiated by GMO Internet is entirely voluntary and the lower limit will be around $ 8,800, plus a 10% bonus for employees who want to try. 10% bonus can compensate some of the sudden changes in bitcoin value. The bid offered to employees is not only valid for Bitcoin, but they can also get payments over other digital currencies if desired.
Employees who receive payments in digital currencies will likely tend to accumulate, perhaps because of this breakthrough.
