- Bitcoin payroll provider Bitwage has launched a new platform.
- The update brings a redesigned dashboard and new features for workers and employers.
- The launch comes after a year of working on the new platform, Bitwage said.
Bitwage, a bitcoin payroll service provider since 2014, has launched its all-new platform, with new additions to make life even easier for businesses and individuals looking to pay and get paid in BTC.
“Bitwage’s engineering team has worked for over a year to release an all-new platform for all users with a host of new features,” Bitwage said in a statement sent to Bitcoin Magazine. “They expect these features to make the Bitwage experience more convenient for those who believe in leveraging their bitcoin and cryptocurrency earnings.”
Bitwage said its bitcoin payroll services will look and feel different for businesses and individuals with the launch of the new platform.
Changes for businesses include the ability to invite their employees more easily, check their onboarding status, and send reminders to employees and contractors to complete setup; use billing features; access reports and analytics, and combine multiple contractor invoices into a single transaction.
Individuals, meanwhile, will benefit from a redesigned dashboard and easier setup of cryptocurrency payroll distributions; the ability to generate and email legal invoices to customers; and better and more transparent receipt details.
“These changes mark the start of a new era for Bitwage,” the company said in a statement.
In December, Bitwage became the first company to process bitcoin payroll on Lightning after processing a salary payment entirely on Bitcoin’s Layer 2 scaling solution for fast and cheap bitcoin payments.
Bitwage said it has processed over $125 million in transactions since 2014 and currently has 50,000 registered users and 2,000 registered businesses. In 2021, the company’s activity doubled in the American and Latin American markets, representing a growth of 1,900% since the start of the pandemic in 2020.
