A Japanese internet services provider will start to pay employees partially in bitcoin, according to cryptocurrency watcher CoinDesk.
Beginning in 2018, GMO Internet Group will give employees the option to receive payments from 10,000 yen (about $88) to 100,000 yen (about $881). Employees will also get an additional 10% of the salary they choose to receive in bitcoin as an incentive.
GMO has an interest in promoting bitcoin. It is set to launch a new cryptocurrency mining operation in 2018, and actively trades bitcoin.
But some still urge caution. World renowned economist Robert Shiller said bitcoin was "the best example of a bubble."
