well if you get the commission in dogecoin, then perhaps you'd balance out the losses :xDΒ

Crypto hell yes. Stocks definitely not unless it was shares of the organization I'm working at and it was a bonus that had nothing to do with my base. I can spend crypto like it's cash. Stocks I can not

Only if I'm getting more monetary value by taking it that way. Otherwise I'd rather just get it in cash and do what I want with that, including stocks/crypto.

I guess there is only value in receiving crypto in this specific scenario. As an active investor, I am investing my spare cash anyway, so I am not sure if I want to receive stocks as part of my payment, unless it was something like a stock buying program, or RSU's. But then you are most likely only getting stock in the company you work for.Β 

But I would want this on top of what my pay is. I wouldn't want to take a pay cut to start to receive this other offering of hybrid cash and stock/crypto.Β

Not when the IRS is coming after our asses. Stupid IRS, why can't you chill out for once. Crypto should not be taxed until we figure out a place for it in society aside from speculating it

I have something similar to this right now, but it’s not in lieu of commission dollars. I earn RSUs per dollar sold of my company’s private stock as an additional incentive on top of my usual commission rates. I feel it works out well, Β but that’s also because I’m in a startup environment and believe that my shares will be worth something significant down the roadΒ

I already get stock options...so why would I need more from my commission? If its Crypto though...I would consider it but would be unhappy if they forced me to get it.
