Federal Deputy Luizão Goulart (Republicanos/PR) presented this Friday (5) to the Board of Directors of the Chamber of Deputies a bill that provides for the possibility that part of the salaries of Brazilian workers be paid in cryptocurrencies.
According to the provisions of PL 3908/2022, private sector workers and public servants from the three governmental spheres may opt for this type of payment.
The limit on the percentage of payment in cryptocurrencies will be freely chosen by the worker, “any imposition by the employer is prohibited”.
In the justification for the bill, the deputy says that cryptocurrencies use the decentralized system and, therefore, are not controlled by a single person or central entity.
“Our proposition is in line with this modernity, establishing that, optionally, the worker can receive part of their remuneration in any type of cryptocurrency in force in the Financial Market”, he says.
But the legislator states that the main reason for the proposal is the fact that it will "collaborate in solving the 'cash' problem of the Federal, State and Municipal Governments, providing alternatives in the form of payment for the public servant in general and at the same time moving a gigantic Market Economy to come”.
Luizão ends with enthusiasm: “The Fourth Digital Revolution is already a Global reality. It is only up to us to adapt, reinvent and progress along this wonderful path of Modernity, aiming to establish a Global Economy that facilitates the daily lives of citizens and, above all, provides a good quality of life for all”.
