Slovenia Claims World’s 1st Blockchain Monument

The first monument to the blockchain technology that underpins cryptocurrencies took center stage on Tuesday on a roundabout in Slovenia, authorities in Kranj, the country’s fourth largest city, said.
Weighing three tons and with a diameter of about 7 meters, the circular metal sculpture was unveiled next to the courthouse in Kranj, about 30 kilometers north of the capital Ljubljana. The design, featuring the ‘B’ symbol crossed by two vertical lines that represents both blockchain and bitcoin currency, was chosen by popular demand. “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,” Mayor Bostjan Trilar told Reuters.
The monument was paid for by two local firms that use blockchain technology, a software company 3fs and digital currency exchange Bitstamp.
