CNBC Covers BitPay's Employee Bitcoin Payroll Option

At BitPay, employees have the option to receive part of their pay in Bitcoin. This week, CNBC did a story on Bitcoin payroll in the Bitcoin space. To get an inside look, CNBC talked to our compliance counsel Jeremie Beaudry, who receives a portion of his pay in Bitcoin.

Jeremie doesn't fit most people's image of a Bitcoiner. Here's how the article puts it:

"Jeremie Beaudry doesn't code or hang out on Reddit. He wasn't raised post-financial crash with a healthy suspicion of traditional banking institutions or fiat currency. In fact, Beaudry spent most of his career working for a big U.S. bank."

But like many BitPay employees from many different backgrounds, Jeremie sees the long-term promise of blockchain payments. And we're happy to offer Bitcoin payroll (among other benefits) for a team of employees who are dedicated to bringing this technology to more people.
