Arnhem Bitcoincity Seeking Government Support to Enroll Museums, Libraries and More
For Arnhem Bitcoincity’s six-month anniversary, the Arnhem Bitcoin Metropolis event gathered nearly 100 people, who made 176 Bitcoin transactions. The team is now seeking governmental support to expand the project.
Talking to CoinTelegraph, Arnhem Bitcoincity‘s Patrick Van Der Meijde, Annet de Boer and Rogier Eijkelhof shared their happiness and pride after the event’s success:
“About 90 visitors showed up, and we got tons of positive reactions and feedback.”
Occurring on November 28, the Arnhem Bitcoin Metropolis event was the opportunity for bitcoiners to spend their coins at local businesses, as well as for novices to be introduced to the technology.
Some merchants took a step further and even offered special promotions for the day, either in the form of “Bitcoin menus” for restaurants, or through numerous discounts when paying using the digital currency. During the evening, talks and workshops on various subjects were held in different locations to educate the curious, explained the team.
