Crypto payment adoption on the rise among global hires: Deel Report

Crypto payment adoption

According to a recent report by Deel, a global payroll solution provider based out of San Francisco, there is a rise in the number of global hires wanting to be paid in crypto. The State of Global Hiring Report surveyed over 1,00,000 contracts across over 150 countries.

The report indicates that crypto payments comprise 5% of the global payment cycle. And despite the bear market, crypto withdrawals, in the form of payments, have remained steady (at 5%) for six months. As of now, the figure is synonymous with the payments released by Deel’s platform. What’s especially heartening is that only 2% of all payments withdrawn were in crypto for the better part of 2021 (that is, June–December).

Keeping history in mind, affinity towards crypto payments has increased by almost 150%.

What are the demographic trends?

The report suggests that crypto payments are more popular among Latin American (LATAM) hires. LATAM-specific crypto acceptance is at 67%, followed by the Europe–Middle East–Africa region, where crypto adoption stands at 24%.

Country-wise, Argentina leads crypto adoption. Argentina’s example represents the faith global hires—especially in regions with high fiat volatility—have in crypto.

Which cryptos are most popular?

According to the report, Bitcoin (BTC) is still the most preferred crypto for payments, with as many as 47% of those surveyed preferring it. Just behind BTC are USDC (at 29%) and Ether (ETH) (at 14%). Despite its frequent network outages, Solana (SOL) continues to enjoy the 4th spot with 8% adoption.

Even though it is a standalone report, the width of the survey might be reassuring enough for crypto supporters. Read the report here.
