In some emerging economies, employees prefer to get paid in cryptocurrency. The benefits are there not only for the employee but also for the companies. Offering to pay people with crypto gives you access to a bigger number of candidates and getting paid in crypto can save you from a headache with money transfers between different jurisdictions.
At basenode.io we want to be a live example of how easy it is to pay in crypto and our CEO Oliver Schantin didn't hesitate to offer this option to some of our developers. Now we have a hybrid system where some employees get paid in fiat currency and others in digital tokens. Since we are an international team, the volatility of our native currencies is different, and we have different payment necessities.
In this article from Blockworks, Joel Oshiegbu a basenode.io employee talks about his experience getting his paycheck in crypto. How fast he gets his funds and lower commissions are some of the key points that you can read about in their blog. Nevertheless, you should always keep an eye on the different regulations that apply in the country where your company is based or the country where your employee lives.
