A new survey has established that one in four Australians would like to receive at least part of their salary in cryptocurrency. While the motives vary between the members of this diverse group, the results indicate that the Australian nation’s overall interest in decentralized digital money remains strong.

4.7 Million Australians Would Accept Bitcoin Remuneration

The poll has been conducted among 1,000 Australian residents by the comparison website Finder. The company is actually among the first in the country to offer employees the option to take a portion of their remuneration in cryptocurrency. The platform has now found that 24% of Australians, or around 4.7 million, are ready to accept bitcoin (BTC) as part of their salaries.

Of those who would be willing to be paid in BTC, Finder pointed out, 14% have said so because they are convinced it is going up in value, while another 10% admitted a bitcoin payment would help them to invest in digital currency before tax.

Taylor Blackburn, personal finance specialist at Finder, notes that the cryptocurrency has seen impressive growth in the past year, “despite its recent drop and sometimes volatile nature.†Commenting on the outcome of the study, Blackburn further emphasized:

Australian Generation X and Millennials View Crypto Salary as Investment

According to the survey, Generation X Australians are more likely than others to view a crypto salary as a wise investment. 22% of the respondents in this age group think BTC is going to appreciate even more over time, along with 19% of millennials. For comparison, only 1% of baby boomers and 13% of Generation Z share their optimism.

The researchers also discovered that men with higher incomes ($100,000 and above) are more interested in Bitcoin in general. Furthermore, male respondents (21%) are far more likely to accept BTC payments than women (8%) because of their belief the cryptocurrency’s value will increase. 13% of men and 8% of female participants respectively think crypto wages will allow them to invest before taxation.

Despite the positive trends registered in the study, over half of Australians (55%) are still not interested in crypto remuneration. Another 13% fear bitcoin’s volatility which lowers their trust in the cryptocurrency. Finder also notes that 8% of the polled Aussies have stated they need to access all the money they make each payday.
