There is another sweetener that some businesses are considering to attract people to join their firms—paying in Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. In 2021 we saw digital assets go parabolic. The number of new crypto projects and incredible rise in value of the asset class caught America and the world’s attention.
To some people, purchasing digital assets was viewed as a hedge against the U.S. dollar that’s being devalued due to rising inflation and questionable policies from the federal government and Federal Reserve bank. Other folks, especially young people, saw cryptocurrencies as a YOLO (you only live once) trade that could make them rich quickly.
Burdened with heavy college tuition debt payments, exorbitant apartment and home prices, coupled with an alarming inflation rate raising the prices of everything, digital assets seemed the only way to get ahead financially.
If you get paid in U.S. dollars, as inflation increases, the value of your paycheck decreases. Recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics highlights rising costs. The consumer price index in September spiked 5.4% higher in 2021. The growth was so fast and furious that the U.S. government called for a nearly 6% cost-of-living increase for people on Social Security. This was the largest hike in four decades.
The sad reality is that if you didn’t receive a hefty raise in 2021, and inflation remains the same or keeps raging higher, you’ll actually see a decrease in pay. This doesn’t mean the company pays you less, it's that the purchasing power from your salary doesn’t have the same value as it once did. It's like a race in which you are standing still and everyone is running past you. Each dollar you have is devalued and it takes more money to buy the same products compared to a year or so ago.
We are seeing signs of change in payments. Miami Mayor Francis Suarez said he would take a paycheck “100% in Bitcoin,” and will also offer cryptocurrencies to public employees too. Eric Adams, the new Mayor of New York City similarly announced that he’s looking into paying people in Bitcoin and other digital assets, and will accept his his first three paychecks in Bitcoin. Sports stars “Russell Okung, Odell Beckham Jr and Aaron Rodgers have all said they will be paid at least in part in crypto,” according to Bloomberg.
