Can you imagine getting your paycheck in Bitcoin? That would be just dandy for a lot of IT professionals.

Events company Tech in Motion polled 847 IT pros about accepting Bitcoin as payment for work, and more than half, 51 percent, said yes; another 18 percent said maybe. Only 10 percent think Bitcoin won't last.

It probably helps that the value of Bitcoin is really high right now. As of Tuesday, one Bitcoin is worth about $850, according to Coindesk.
