Tiny start-up scores PR grand slam with bullsh@t Bitcoin story

A tiny Canadian payroll processing start-up scored a massive public relations home run with a story that claims paying workers in the imaginary digital currency is a "growing trend".

Ya right!

But the story is on view at every major Canadian news outlet and has gone international! While it's obviously way more fluff than facts, it's not outright fabrication.

Last year nobody wanted to be paid in Bitcoin... this year a couple of folks at least inquired about it...

That is indeed a growing trend!

A tip of the hat to the PR savvy nerds at Wagepoint!
