“Slovenia, one of the smallest countries in the EU is certainly not resting on its laurels when it comes to the blockchain and crypto currency space. In fact, the tiny nation, nestled between Italy and Croatia with a wonderful topography that includes the Julian Alps and lush green forests has come up with the idea of the first ‘Bitcoin City’ just outside of the capital in Ljubljana.
The huge former shopping destination stretches over a massive 475,000 square metres and has over 500 retail stores. The complex dubbed ‘BTC City’ also received a boost of late when the country’s outgoing Prime Minister, Miro Cerar visited the site. He added a certain common touch to proceedings by buying a cup of coffee using a cryptocurrency payment gateway. Ljubljana has always been at the forefront of internet and communication technology and boasts a host of start-ups as well as other innovative schemes to make it one of the top tech cities in Europe. This new complex will undoubtedly make it go places as the adoption of cryptocurrency continues to spread.” (Coin Geek)
