Kranj, a Slovenian city, recently added a new monument to its set – the Bitcoin logo.
The monument was placed in the center of a roundabout and sponsored by the crypto exchange Bitstamp and the Slovenian technology company 3fs, CryptoCollin tweeted.
According to the official announcement, the logo’s location symbolizes decentralized connectivity and everyday life optimization as well as trust, cooperation, and the country’s transparency.
This is the first monument of its kind in the world and it was created by Slovenian artists Aleksandar Frančeškin and Selman Čorović. It’s great to see a European country allow the placement of such a strong visual symbol of the world’s most famous cryptocurrency.
This kind of monument aims to help raise the still too low awareness of crypto in EU territory.
