It is always the question that one puts into Google, especially if you're from countries where money is devalued and you're looking for a way to fight off inflation.
So, let's first go back to the start. Bitwage was founded in 2014. This is ages in Bitcoin years. Our co-founders, the current CTO and current CEO, started a one-of-a-kind company named Bitwage. The goal was simple: allow people to get paid in Bitcoin without asking for permission from anyone. This includes employers, whoever they may be and wherever they are located.

So here's the first hurdle. People usually think that you can't get paid in Bitcoin without having some kind of approval from your employer. This is not true. You can. You do not even have to have a bank account at all.

HOW TO GET PAID IN BITCOIN SALARY - without your employer even knowing about it
Why should you need to ask for permission from your employer in the first place? But how else do you start Getting paid in BTC then? One step at a time, we'll explain.

The whole thing is so simple, it's actually mind-boggling when you hear it. It gives you that "Eureka!" moment.

  1. First, you sign up with our service on, it's free to open an account.
  2. Set your allocation (spread between Bitcoin and maybe a percentage to your bank account)
  3. Get access to new bank account details that we provide to you. Give the new details to your employer.

These are the mechanics on how our service works for people that are hosting on Airbnb, renting on Booking, receiving payments from Upwork, driving for Uber, remotely working for a company abroad, or working for a government company. It makes no difference who you work for. Main thing is that there is no need to ask for permission, and you can spread your payments between local currency and Bitcoin, based on your preference.
Using our service, you get more for your money.

You receive your payments faster and in a more secure way. Getting paid in Bitcoin can easily become a reality for workers from the US, Nigeria, Argentina, and across the globe, as we provide our service worldwide.
