250 EMPLOYEES OF THE CRYPTOCURRENCY EXCHANGE KRAKEN GET PAID IN BITCOINS
Cryptocurrency exchange Kraken reported that last month the company paid 250 salaries in bitcoins.
This information was left under the message of the famous 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 amount due to him in bitcoins in 2012, in 2013 quit his job,” the representatives of the exchange added.
According to preliminary data, the company has 800 employees. This means that a little less than a third of them receive a salary in cryptocurrencies. At the same time, it should be said that the labor legislation of America requires at least a partial payment in Fiat money or checks, so you need to wait for additional comments from representatives of the company before talking about the details of the compensation mechanism for a particular case.
Recall that this week Kraken announced a “unique and limited opportunity” to buy preferred shares of the company.
