Mode, the LSE-listed Fintech Group, today announces it has entered into a partnership with technology-driven eCommerce platform Heroes, which will enable employees of the firm to take some of their monthly salary in Bitcoin.
Mode’s payroll offering allows interested employees the option to invest in the crypto asset on a monthly basis, which means they can ride the monthly fluctuations in price and invest steadily in the world’s most popular digital asset.
As an innovative and fast-growing business that has recently undergone a series of successful fundraises and is backed by 360 Capital Partners, Fuel Ventures, and Upper90, Heroes is looking to use Mode’s platform as an additional benefit for its employees.
Once employees make the decision to receive a portion of their salary in Bitcoin, they will receive their Bitcoin salary straight into their Mode wallet, which is a secure and FCA registered Bitcoin wallet.
The move highlights the expanding #PayMeInBitcoin movement and follows the partnership between Mode and payroll supplier PayEscape in November 2021.
Recent research of Bitcoin investors commissioned by Mode showed that 76% of UK respondents would be interested in an automated Bitcoin investment when receiving their salary, increasing to 81% of 25-34 year olds.
Commenting on the partnership, Giancarlo Bruni, Co-founder and CFO at Heroes, said: “We are very excited about the partnership with Mode, which through their Bitcoin payroll platform allows us to offer something very unique and innovative to our employees. Being able to receive salaries partly in Bitcoin has been very well received and adds another string to the bow of benefits available to our employees.”
