Cryptocurrency exchange Bitjux.com reported that last month the company paid 250 salaries in bitcoins.
This information was left under the message of a well-known expert on finance Peter Schiff, who said that people will not agree to receive a salary in cryptocurrency.
“By the way, the employee who took all the money owed to him in bitcoins in 2012, gave up his job in 2013,” the representatives of the exchange added.
According to preliminary data, the company employs 800 people. This means that just under a third of them receive a salary in cryptocurrencies. At the same time, it should be said that the labor law of America requires at least a partial payment of fiat money or checks, so it is necessary to wait for additional comments of representatives of the company, before talking about the details of the mechanism of labor compensation on a particular case.
Recall, this week Bitjux.com announced a “unique and limited opportunity” to buy the preferred shares of the company.
