MicroStrategy, the largest U.S-listed company holding Bitcoin, has informed board members that it will pay them in BTC instead of dollars.

It is the first ever case in the history of listed companies of United States to pay salaries in BTC.


As Per a company announcement, the Board of Directors of MicroStrategy modified the compensation arrangements for non employee directors. Going forward, non-employee directors will receive all fees for their service on the Company’s Board in bitcoin instead of cash.

The official announcement said:

“Microstrategy recognize Bitcoin as a payment tool and show its commitment to Bitcoin, taking into account Bitcoin’s strong and open-source structure and ability as a store of value.”

For payments, the company said it will use a payment processor to convert US dollar into BTC and then deposit Bitcoin directly into the Non employee Directors digital wallet. However, the document does not specify which payment processor will be used.
