Mode launches Bitcoin payroll option for UK firms
“In the post-pandemic world of increasingly digital workplaces, options such as being paid in Bitcoin can enable forward-thinking firms to attract and retain the best talent.”
Mode has partnered with payroll platform Lano in order to enable the firm’s clients to pay their UK employees a portion of their salary in Bitcoin.
The solution allows businesses worldwide to hire, manage and pay talent from across the globe, reducing the complexity of global employment and payroll in more than 150 countries.
The #PayMeInBitcoin movement
Mode’s crypto payroll offering allows UK-based salary recipients to put a portion of their income into Bitcoin on a regular basis, offering greater access to the world’s most popular digital asset.
Demand across employers and employees for more flexible working arrangements has increased. Receiving a portion of salary in Bitcoin is one way to go about it as employees and employers reimagine the way they earn, diversify, save, and spend.
Mode is a London Stock Exchange Main Market listed and FCA-registered firm. Due to its listing and regulatory position, employees who opt-in to receive part of their salary in Bitcoin get their tokens delivered securely in their Mode Wallet, with confidence that they are involved with an FCA-registered business and the hallmarks of credibility that denotes.
Rita Liu, Chief Executive Officer at Mode, commented: “The #PayMeInBitcoin movement has been accelerating in recent months, with adopters ranging from NBA players to hairdressers. In the post-pandemic world of increasingly digital workplaces, options such as being paid in Bitcoin can enable forward-thinking firms to attract and retain the best talent. Our payroll offering helps innovative firms respond to the way their workforce wants to evolve the workplace and we are seeing demand for options around crypto capabilities increase.”
