The Birth Of Bitcoin City: A New Project Of Slovenia’s Biggest Shopping Mall
BTC City, the largest shopping mall in Slovenia, adopted a new strategy that will effectively turn it into a real Bitcoin (BTC) City. Recently, the shopping center was visited by the country’s Prime Minister, Miro Cerar, to open an international conference called Beyond 4.0 and learn more about BTC City‘s newest strategy, which includes becoming a first-ever Bitcoin City, where every product and service can be paid for via Bitcoin.
BTC City is a large commercial complex with 500 retail stores, stretching over 475,000 square meters. It has become a testing ground for a platform called Eligma, based on blockchain technology and driven by a specially-designed AI. The platform is used by many retailers in the complex, due to its crypto-payment system called Elipay. It was this very system that Tadej Slapnik, the State Secretary of Slovenia, used to buy Cerar a cup of coffee via Bitcoin.
The retailers have seen the potential of this payment system, inspiring more and more of them to join in and accept it into their businesses. Now, customers will have the opportunity to pay for their goods and services via Bitcoin, and the inclusion of Bitcoin Cash is also planned alongside the inclusion of Eligma’s own crypto.
