With a press release, the cryptocurrency DNotes announced the release of their Employee Incentive Benefits Plan, the latest addition to their family of CRISPs (Cryptocurrency Investment Savings Plans) that already provides an investment vehicle for Children, Students, and Retirement funds. The Employee Incentive Benefits Plan combines knowledge of the employer/employee relationship with macro-economic foresight to maximize its users’ long-term potential benefit.
Employee benefits play an important role in the lives of employees as well as their families. Benefits offered by an employer can be a deciding factor for a potential employee’s job decision. The cost of doing business is ever increasing, and with it, employee savings requirements. The traditional idea that pension plans will take care of an employee’s financial needs upon retirement is quickly becoming obsolete. The relationship between employers and employees needs urgent re-examination, and a new mindset of partnership for mutual benefit and survival is necessary.
Employees are struggling to secure their financial future. This means high stress, increased anxiety, lower productivity, and diminishing loyalty that breeds high staff turnover. High interest credit cards are being used to supplement cash flow. Furthermore, these fraud-prone cards have high transaction costs and shockingly high chargebacks that are paid for by the merchant, anywhere up to 8%, thus impeding business, jobs, and wage growth. I see Digital Currency adoption as a solution to high transaction costs for merchants, and inflated prices for essential consumer goods.
said DNotes Co-founder Alan Yong. Yong, a pioneer from the early days of mobile computing, pointed out that while small businesses continue to be the main incubator of job creation in the US economy, the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics data showed that entrepreneurship is in steady decline, with both incorporated and unincorporated self-employment dropping nearly ten percent since 2004. Small business numbers have not recovered in line with economic growth since the 2008 Global Financial Crisis. Yong attributes this in part to small business owners having difficulty meeting costly payroll, healthcare obligations, mounting regulations, and funding their own retirement accounts.
