    Question Getting paid in bitcoins?

    I'm in a bit of a catch 22 - I can't get a job without a portfolio of work and I can't get a portfolio of work without a job (well, theoretically I could but it was take a long time and I kind of need cash within next few months).

    So, I was thinking of accepting a short-term job that pays in bitcoins as a stop-gap to help me get real-world experience and build up my portfolio...is this a good idea?

    Bitcoin is very volatile and aren't backed by any nation, are extremely volatile, as it is not backed by anything tangible, by central banks, or by any nations. So, when converting to local currency the value can vary wildly.
