Getting Paid in Bitcoins

Wednesday 25 September 2013

People often get excited about bitcoin and love the idea of bitcoin. They might relish the thought of opening their bitcoin wallet to see how much their holdings are worth and still find novelty value in scanning the QR code to make a purchase or transaction. It is all very well, but how many people would actually be prepared to forgo getting paid in fiat and how scary would it be if your only income was actually in bitcoin? This article on Coin Desk explored just that:


When I first started writing for CoinDesk, all my friends made the same joke: you aren’t going to get paid in bitcoins, are you?

I assured all concerned parties that I would work for nothing but US dollars. I made sure to get that in writing.

But the more I learn about bitcoin, the more I realize that getting paid in the cryptocurrency would not be as scary as I feared.
