Bridging the gap with the traditional financial system
The partnership has been live in beta mode since November, with its first customer the Paxful peer-to-peer exchange. "Bitwage bridges the gap between bitcoins and the traditional financial system," said Hayel Abbassi, Paxful Controller. "As a company that earns 100% of the bitcoin revenue, we are always looking for service providers that will accept the digital currency, Paxful has a significant team in the United States and we have to pay them as payroll employees, not as entrepreneurs. Bitwage has recently formed a partnership with a traditional payroll company that integrates into their platform to provide these services.Pixx simply sends bitcoins to an address, and our employees receive net checks with the correct federal and state taxes. "
According to the announcement, US customers of Bitwage are also able to pay for benefits such as health insurance and HR compliance services. Companies around the world are able to use their cryptographic holdings to pay for local suppliers in the United States, the United Kingdom, the United Kingdom, Brazil, the Philippines, India, Mexico, Argentina, and other regions.
