Asta has 120 employees listed on Linkedin, working from offices in Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland.
The company offers its customers IT security services, cloud solutions, and the creation of crypto-currencies.
Get Paid in Bitcoin primarily focuses on individual clients, allowing them to receive a fraction of their salary in Bitcoin by providing Get Paid in Bitcoin bank account details to their corporate payroll office.
But the company tweeted it had “builds a solution for Australian businesses – A solution that will allow businesses to pay all their staff in #Bitcoin without additional regulatory compliance or complications.
Other Australian companies that let their employees use Bitcoin include Finder, crypto bill payment company Living Room of Satoshi and BTC Markets, the Sydney Morning Herald reported in May.
Satoshi Lounge recently launched a similar service, allowing workers to receive their after-tax salary in BTC by giving their employer the bank details of the Brisbane-based company.
More than 18,000 customers have used Living Room of Satoshi’s bill payment service to pay more than 200,000 BPay bills, according to the company.
