Bitcoin salary startup receives award nomination

Announcements | September 22, 2016 By:

Get Paid In Bitcoin (GPIB} is nominated in the Innovative Startup category at the Innovative Tasmania Awards 2016.

Like BitWage in the US, GPIB aims to make Bitcoin seamless for clients by automatically paying a percentage of their regular salary directly to their bitcoin wallets. It removes the need to manually exchange dollars, letting users save or spend the bitcoins they receive as they choose.

Founder and CEO Adam Poulton said Get Paid in Bitcoin attracted the attention of innovation awards organizers through a Smart Cities project. Smart Cities is a national initiative designed to prepare Australian cities to innovate and “succeed in the 21st Century economy”.

Voting for the awards, which are part of a film festival in the City of Launceston, runs until September 30. The festival itself will take place from November 10-13 this year.
