You Can Now Get Paid With Bitcoin Cash
International cryptocurrency payroll and human resources service provider Bitwage has recently announced the launch of bitcoin cash payrolls. This means that anyone working for a U.S., EU or U.K. employer can now receive a portion of their wage in BCH by signing up to the service. Companies can also sign up to fund payrolls in BCH or to offer BCH to their employees and freelancers.
Earlier this year the company expanded beyond just BTC by launching support for ETH payrolls. Shortly after that it took a customer survey to learn what else its users wanted and discovered that there was demand more cryptocurrency payment options. Bitcoin cash, as a consistent top four digital asset, offering low fees and fast transactions, was a natural choice to add.
