Bitwage improves Bitcoin payroll service for EU clients

posted about 1 year ago
Bitcoin startup Bitwage has moved to improve its payroll service for customers based in the EU, launching a new upgrade aimed at speeding up the process for users in the region.

Bitwage provides a means for employers to pay their workers in bitcoin or fiat currencies, using bitcoin as a way to quickly move money worldwide.

Bitwage said today it is now offering unique International Bank Account Number (IBAN) to EU customers who subscribe to its premium service, as well as those who see monthly transaction volumes in excess of €1,999.

An IBAN is a unique string of numbers signifying a specific bank account, and should see customers able to access wages more quickly. Previously, an EU-based customer might have found themselves waiting for a claim to go through.

"With our new unique IBANs, users receiving wages for EU companies no longer need to create deposit claims, as payment descriptions are no longer required for these transactions," the startup said in a statement.
