BitJob, the first global marketplace for student employment to be built on the blockchain, has announced a new collaboration with Canadian bitcoin brokerage Bitcoin Brains. The partnership will leverage the student community, which BitJob aims to engage in cryptocurrency-related employment, to expand the country’s network of bitcoin ATMs and introduce a new generation of people to the benefits of digital cash.

This not only gives them valuable employment and money to spend, but does so in a way that also provides vital experience in a fast-growing sector and the connections that will help them gain their first jobs after leaving university. Businesses, meanwhile, will benefit by improved access to developers and others working in the digital economy.

Whilst workers can accept pay directly, in the form of STU tokens – with incentives for doing so – they can also opt to convert this to fiat and be paid via PayPal.
