New Zealand says you can now take payment in Bitcoin!
# You could always take payment in Bitcoin, but now in New Zealand, it's legal!

In what seems like rather huge news...

New Zealand announced that employees can now legally elect to have their salaries paid to them in cryptocurrency.

And who said these things weren't real currencies...

The bullet points can be seen here:

# This is potentially YUGE news!

This is the first of what is hopefully many countries going this same route.

It's the first step of bitcoin, or some other coin, establishing itself as a country's currency of choice.

Hopefully if this gets enough headlines and enough press other countries start to follow suit.

If you click that link above, Pomp encourages all twitter users to retweet that post to try and get it seen by as many people as possible.

Stay informed my friends.
