Do you want to be paid in United States dollars or in bitcoins? If you belong to the Information Technology industry then it’s likely you’ll want to be paid in digital currency, at least according to a new survey.

Event organizer Tech in Motion published the results of a new survey that found a majority of IT professionals would like to be paid in bitcoin. According to the study, 51 percent answered “yes, absolutely” in response to the question: “Would you be interested in being paid for your work in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin?”

Another 18 percent said, “Maybe, let’s see where bitcoin is in a year or two.” Less than one-third responded by saying they would prefer to be paid in traditional currency. Just less than 10 percent flat out rejected the option and believed bitcoin would not last. Only a fraction didn’t know what the cryptocurrency was.

Over the past year, bitcoin has become a popular electronic payment system. Before the end of the year, the virtual currency nearly hit $1,200 before dropping back. At the time of this writing, it’s trading more than $800.
