Swiss media giant to pay salaries in Bitcoin

posted 3 months ago
Switzerland-based publishing house Netzmedien AG announced today it would begin paying all staff wages in Bitcoin. They offered their employees a choice to choose between Bitcoin and the Swiss Franc. A voting round ensued, and Bitcoin emerged as the winner.

Netzmedien CEO Heinrich Meyer also said they would start accepting Bitcoin by mid-2019 for their media publications, which include 8 tech related magazines and 1 website. Marc Landis, the publication’s editor-in-chief said “The SBB and Digitec Galaxus set a good example. They already accept Bitcoin today. Also, the Grand Hotel Dolder announced last week that it would accept payments in Bitcoin. I believe that thousands of companies will follow suit.”
