According to the Bank of England, Bitcoin isn’t a currency – but that didn’t stop Zakk Lakin choosing to be paid in it and nothing else. This is what life is like being paid exclusively in digital money
After CoinCorner said staff could take some – or all – their pay in cryptocurrency, Zakk leapt straight in, choosing to have 100% of his salary paid in Bitcoin.
And the software developer, who lives on the Isle of Man, said he’s managing fine.
“People always ask how I am coping with living on Bitcoin, but the truth is that my lifestyle hasn’t really changed,” the 24-year-old told Mirror Money.
