The Mexican Bitcoin exchange Bitso has announced a collaboration with Bitwage to help Mexican workers attain their wages in Bitcoin. Founded in 2014 Bitso is one of Mexico’s first Bitcoin exchanges within the region and offers service for those exchanging with the Mexican Peso. Adoption in Mexico has increased quite a bit over the past year and is showing signs of steady growth within the Mexican borders.
