Orange and Draper funds over 3/4 million dollars for Bitwage
Bitwage announced today the closure of a funding round with $760,000 led by France’s largest telecommunications company, Orange, as well as Tim Draper’s Draper Associates.
Jonathan Chester, Founder and CSO at BitWage, commented:
“We are more than excited to have the support of influential companies and individuals, such as Orange and Tim Draper.
The service allows employees to receive their wages or buy goods with bitcoin without their employer or clients needing to sign up to Bitwage.
We asked Simon Dixon, CEO of BnkToTheFuture.com and Fund Manager at Bitcoin Capital, about the decision to invest in Bitwage.
Bitwage is bringing the power of Bitcoin to international Payroll and it was one of the most popular pitches on BnkToTheFuture.com.”
