Nicolau, alongside many other Latin Americans, prefers receiving payments in Bitcoin due to the staggering inflation that currently haunts his home country.

His manager, Vinicius Las Casas, explained:

“We are very bullish on Bitcoin, and we are looking to spread the Bitcoin gospel with this latest deal.”

Las Casas will also be receiving part of his salary in Bitcoin.

To  receive a Bitcoin salary through Bitwage, users have to register and obtain a bank account number, this account number is then given to the employer, who can then deposit a paycheck. Once the paycheck goes through, the user will receive Bitcoin to their preferred wallet.
