Crypto Payroll Company Bitwage partners with Casa and Edge Wallet

Since John Lindsay and Jonathan Chester launched Bitwage in 2014, the company has offered bitcoin (BTC) and cryptocurrency salary payment services to people in countries around the world. Following the company’s announcement that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Strawweight Luana Pinheiro would be paid in BTC via Bitwage’s payroll services, Bitwage announced that it has partnered with wallet companies Edge Wallet and Casa.

Before being partnered with Casa and Edge, Bitwage users had to provide a wallet address in order to take advantage of the company’s payroll services. However, Casa and Edge Wallet users can now use a QR code or deep link “without the need for manual public key exchange,” Bitwage said Monday. Bitwage believes the function is an exciting improvement for the company’s customers.

“This partnership is exciting because it creates access for an entire generation of novice crypto users,” Bitwages announced on August 1. “While experienced users still have the ability to connect an address from any wallet, new users have the ability to have a friendly and secure experience to find their first wallet and connect it to Bitwage.”

“Our collaboration with Bitwage to create and deploy the Request for Address protocol represents our laser focus on making crypto simple and seamless for end users,” explained Paul Puey, CEO and co-founder of Edge Wallet in a statement sent to Bitcoin.com News. “Finally, users can eliminate the need to copy and paste addresses between apps and websites when they need to request crypto in their wallet,” Puey added.

Interest in Crypto Payroll Services has increased over the past 4 years

Cryptocurrency payroll services have become very popular over the past four years. Atlanta-based crypto payment processor Bitpay introduced payroll services in 2020. NYDIG also offers bitcoin payroll services, and on July 14, the company announced that it entered into a deal with Major League Baseball (MLB) team the New York Yankees.

The announcement detailed that NYDIG will provide bitcoin salaries to the Yankees players and staff. During the announcement, Bitwage co-founder Jonathan Chester explained on Monday that people using non-custodial wallets teach them how to bank for themselves.

“Education is a very important part of the Bitwage experience, and part of that experience is helping our users understand wallets while teaching them how to be their own bank,” said Chester, CEO of Bitwage. “Edge and Casa are two of the best and most secure wallets on the market. Our partnership with these wallets is just the beginning of our journey to educate millions of workers around the world about bitcoin, cryptocurrency and stablecoins and what it means to get paid in these currencies.”
