A First Monument To Bitcoin


Both Bitcoin and the blockchain technology definitely entered our lives and are here to stay. We hear of new great ideas almost every day. Regardless if it’s the Cryptomatoes or a Crypto-heater – things are happening all around us.

It is no surprise that someone decided to finally create a monument to the first and most successful cryptocurrency. And so in Kranj, Slovenia – a first Bitcoin monument had been built.

Citizens decided

Major Bostjan Trilar explained:

“We asked citizens on our Facebook page to decide what to place in the new roundabout and this was one of the first ideas we received… Kranj has a lot of companies dealing with high technology,”

The monument weighs three tonnes and measures about seven meters in diameter. It was paid for by two local firms, both using the blockchain technology, a software company 3fs and Bitstamp cryptocurrency exchange.

It is located in the centre of a roundabout, next to the courthouse in Kranj, roughly 30 kilometres from the capital Ljubljana.
