P2P platform Humans.net has commissioned a survey into the payment preferences of American freelancers.
The survey was conducted on 1,100 U.S. citizens to determine their choice to being paid in bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, with 18 percent expressing a clear preference for digital currency payments over fiat currency.
Among those questioned were self-employed professionals such as tutors, designers and developers.
An additional 11 percent of those surveyed stated that they would like to receive partial payments in cryptocurrency, making a total of 29 percent of freelancers who would be happy to receive crypto.
There seems to be a few obstacles surrounding being paid in crypto. One of the biggest problems for freelancers is being able to find jobs that will pay them in crypto. The second is liquidity. The market tends to move at a fast pace and their savings could literally be dropped to zero overnight.
Looking from the bright side, there’s a lot of upward potential in the price movement and payments can almost be instant with low fees.
