Netherland’s largest Domino’s franchise pays staff in Bitcoin

Immensus Holdings, the Netherland’s largest pizza franchise, now offers employees the option of receiving their salaries in Bitcoin.

The franchise has over 1,000 internal and external employees who are legible for the scheme.

The news comes on Bitcoin Pizza Day, when Florida software developer Laszlo Hanyecz became the first person to use Bitcoin for a commercial transaction, purchasing two pizzas in 2010.

That transaction would now be worth around $410 million.

Bitcoin continues to attract some mainstream adoption in the payments space; in March PayPal announced the launch of its new cryptocurrency checkout service ‘Checkout with Crypto.’

The feature enables consumers to pay for select purchases at millions of online businesses with their cryptocurrency of choice.

However, Tesla removed the option of letting customers pay with Bitcoin earlier this month, citing environmental concerns.

Immensuus co-owner Jonathan Gurevich said: “We work with a lot of young employees. We hear them talking about Bitcoin and we want to offer the opportunity to own cryptocurrency.”
