News coming from the central European country, Slovenia suggests the country plans to make its present ‘BTC City’ the largest shopping centre in the country a masterpiece.

As reported, cryptocurrencies will become acceptable for the purchase of items within the centre. Shoppers from around the world can, therefore, spend their bitcoins and other officially accepted cryptocurrencies at the shopping centre.

The shopping centre is said to be the home of big brands from every industry; sports, entertainment, fashion, and many others.

Slovenian Prime Minister’s Visit Marks The Begining Of Beyond 4.0 International Conference

The country’s Prime Minister, Miro Cerar is said to have visited the shopping centre in the commencement of the Beyond 4.0 international conference.

During his visit, he was entertained with a cup of coffee. It was stated that the country’s State Secretary, Tadej Slapnik purchased the dring using cryptocurrency.

At the conference, the advancement of digital technologies – such as cryptocurrencies and blockchain – would be discussed. Further, it’s also in plan for this year’s conference to discuss strategies of making the dream about the centre become a reality.

Cryptocurrency, Going Places

Slovenia, like Malta, is one of the crypto friendly countries of the world. With this new plan in place, citizens of the country and tourists from other parts of the world will have one more way to make good use of their crypto assets.

As of 2017, the country is estimated to have a population of about 2.06 million. This means there’s a chance of massive adoption of cryptocurrencies, especially for bitcoin.
