Bitwage continues to make a name for itself in the payroll business. The company has announced the launch of their new “My Employment” feature. This new offering lets users create a payment-verified professional profile, and creates a reputation system for Bitwage users. This should help freelancers and other remote workers increase their [international] client base.
For a lot of people, the Bitwage service is a solution to a lingering problem. Getting paid, especially when contacted by someone over the internet, is not an easy feat. A lot of workers deal with delayed payments, or they end up losing a lot of money due to intermediary fees. Using Bitcoin for this type of business is a no-brainer, and Bitwage has been merging the two worlds since July of 2014.
While the company makes it a lot easier for workers to receive payments at cheaper rates, it did not solve a bigger problem. A lot of freelance workers struggle to find new clients to work for. Since none of the existing Bitcoin-oriented platforms offers a viable reputation system for paid work, Bitwage has come up with a solution.
