I just got my bank account closed.
Reason: International payment were not supported
I don't like to waste my time in bank formalities. I am a programmer. I wish to stay technical for most of the part.
Probably not - I mean you're not in an absolute position to demand them to compensate you via bitcoin. Can you possibly get an E-checking account with someone like INGDirect then have your BTC automatically dispursed via bitwage or even lawnmower...I think you could even do an auto-rebuy with coinbase if you felt inclined to do so.
No. You can ask nicely, but unless your company operates in a country that has declared Bitcoin legal tender you have no legal grounds to enforce it.
Paolo from BITWAGE here; we at Bitwage can help you get paid in bitcoin without your employer even knowing you are availing of our Bitcoin Payroll Service and earning a "bit wage" from Bitwage.
HOW IT WORKS: 1. We give you a bank account number. 2. You tell your employer to send any percentage of your payroll deposit to that number. 3. We put bitcoin, local currency in your preferred bitcoin wallet address the next day after deposit.
