Umalis Group serves bitcoin billing for clients

Umalis Group follows the steps of Japan's GMO Internet to serve the payment of consultants in bitcoin. French employment firm on Friday announced it would start providing a client billing option using bitcoin currencies in January 2018.

The launch of bitcoin futures by CBOE Global Markets has pushed cryptocurrency increasingly mainstream. Big companies start using it as a futuristic currency and price changes that have happened in the last few weeks have calmed down.

"Inauguration on Monday 11 December 2017 the first bitcoin futures contract was an important factor in our decision," said Umalis CEO, Christian Person.

Umalis Group provides services where freelancers seek and negotiate contracts before allowing companies to take care of administrative formalities. The latest step allows 200 consultants to charge in bitcoin currency. Japan's GMO Internet starting February 2018 will pay 4700 employees in bitcoin.
