Today's workforce is increasingly tech-savvy and the demand for salaries paid in crypto is growing. Earlier this year, the mayor of Miami suggested the city pay municipal workers and accept tax payments in cryptocurrency, and in February Twitter’s CFO said the company is exploring paying employees in Bitcoin

But what does this mean for blockchain (and blockchain-friendly) companies today? Up to this point, crypto payroll solutions were custodial, eliminating many of the benefits of using blockchain technology for payment.

Today, we're pleased to introduce Mass Pay—a comprehensive non-custodial payroll solution powered by smart contracts. Pay up to five hundred employees, contractors, or vendors in a single streamlined transaction, and save 40-60% in gas fees compared to individual crypto transactions.

TrustSwap, the Full-Service Digital Asset Ecosystem, is already using Gilded's Mass Pay feature to pay their employees in their native token, SWAP.

“We’re super impressed with how easy and efficient it is. Mass Pay is much quicker and less expensive than sending each payment individually. We’re proud to be using the first true DeFi payroll solution.”

Taylor Zork, TrustSwap CFO
