What is being called a world first, a giant circular disk with the Bitcoin logo emblazoned on it has been erected in the city of Kranj, Slovenia, paying homage to the world’s first digital currency.
The monument was placed by city authorities and forms part of a roundabout in the road with the logo taking center stage.
Bitcoin is here to stay
“We believe Bitcoin is here to stay,” explains Kodrič. “Our goal is to provide reliable easy to use service for companies and individuals to exchange Bitcoins.”
New wave of adoption
The monument personifies the wave of adoption that has swept the mainstream, beginning last year when Bitcoin price skyrocketed. There have been many other different indications that Bitcoin is widely accepted and understood across the global population.
For example, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary has added a host of cryptocurrency terms to its pages, including ICO and Blockchain.
Additionally, popular Talk Show host, Ellen Degeneres did a bit on her show where she aimed to explain Bitcoin to her diverse audience.
