The cryptocurrency payroll service Bitwage announced on Monday that the company has partnered with the digital currency wallets Casa and Edge Wallet in order to “bring bitcoin payroll to mainstream audiences.” Now Edge Wallet and Casa users can connect to the Bitwage platform’s services via a deep link or QR code.
Before partnering with Casa and Edge, Bitwage users needed to provide a wallet address in order to leverage the company’s payroll services. However, Casa and Edge Wallet users can now utilize a QR code or deep link “without any need for manual public key exchange,” Bitwage detailed on Monday. Bitwage believes the feature is an exciting improvement for the company’s customers.
“This partnership is exciting because it creates access for an entire generation of beginner crypto users,” Bitwage’s August 1 announcement details. “While experienced users still have the ability to connect an address from any wallet, new users have the option of having a friendly and secure experience for finding their first wallet and connecting it to Bitwage.”
“Our collaboration with Bitwage on creating and deploying the Request for Address protocol represents our laser focus on making crypto easy and seamless to end users,” Paul Puey, the CEO and co-founder of Edge Wallet explained in a statement sent to Bitcoin.com News. “Finally users can eliminate the need to copy and paste addresses between apps and websites when needing to request crypto into their wallet,” Puey added.
The announcement detailed that NYDIG will provide bitcoin payroll to the Yankees’ players and employees. During the announcement, Bitwage co-founder Jonathan Chester explained on Monday that people leveraging non-custodial wallets teaches them how to bank for themselves.
“Education is a very important part of the Bitwage experience, and part of this experience is helping our users understand wallets while teaching them how to be their own bank,” Chester, the CEO of Bitwage said. “Edge and Casa are two of the best and most secure wallets on the market. Our partnership with these wallets is just the beginning of our journey to educate millions of workers around the world about bitcoin, cryptocurrency, and stablecoins and what it means to get paid in these currencies.”
