In the latest cryptocurrency news, the HR startup company named ChronoBank recently issued a new survey and found quite surprising facts about the crypto investors. According to the survey, there are more and more cryptocurrency investors that are disappointed in the lack of employers who are willing to pay them their salaries in Bitcoin and altcoins.
The survey interviewed 445 crypto enthusiasts and found out that while 66% of the respondents are willing to receive their wages in cryptocurrencies – only a third of them believes that companies in the US will change the system and pay salaries in digital assets.
What’s most interesting is the fact that 83% of the respondents said that they would like to receive their bonus payments in cryptocurrencies. When it comes to taxes, however, only 52% of them are ready to pay the taxes on their digital revenues. In the survey, 65% of the respondents said that they were ready to pay the tax man, and only 30% of the Russians said the same.
All in all, over 60% of the younger respondents from all countries said that they were ready and willing to pay tax on their crypto transactions and earnings. The respondents were mainly from the US, Russia and Australia, as well as other nations – and 92% of them were male, 75% of them were employed and 40% of them were aged between 25 and 34.
According to the CEO of ChronoBank, Sergei Sergeinko:
“Most revealing was that 72% of those surveyed said they would prefer an employer who has the salary payment option in the cryptocurrency when choosing their next place of employment. These results suggest that employers need to get up to speed with crypto sooner rather than later.”
He also pointed out the following fact:
“Even though there are ongoing changes in the legislation of different countries in the field of cryptocurrency, audiences are still not adequately informed about the innovations. Almost half of the respondents do not have enough information on whether salary payments in cryptocurrencies in their countries are allowed.”
In the end, this survey can be used as proof to show that most of the cryptocurrency enthusiasts are still optimistic about the future of the market – so much that they would actually consider the idea of getting paid in crypto.
