Workers in El Salvador can now be paid in Bitcoin

The citizens of El Salvador are not exactly clamoring to pay with Bitcoin, let alone receive their salary in BTC tokens. But they do have that option now.


Citizens of El Salvador need to get used to Bitcoin law

Strike, the wallet partner for El Salvador’s Bitcoin project, announced its new “Pay Me in Bitcoin” feature yesterday. Users can receive part or all of their salary in Bitcoin.

“Today, anyone with a Strike account, regardless of your employer, can be paid in Bitcoin” Like this wrote Strike CEO Jack Mallers.

El Salvador’s Bitcoin law, proposed by President Nayib Bukele, went into effect last month. The legislation makes the Bitcoin legal tender in the country and forces companies to accept the token. Unless they can’t for technological reasons. El Salvador is the first country to take this step.
