Sveta Nedelja, which is home to the famous Rimac Automobili owned by beloved and wildly successful Croatian entrepreneur Mate Rimac, is planning to introduce something quite extraordinary and it will be among the first in the world to make such a move.
With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic continuing to capture the majority (if not all) of the attention of the world’s media, including that of Croatia which has seen an unfortunate and rapid rise in infections over the last few days following a tennis event held in Zadar, it’s difficult to come across positive, non-coronavirus related stories.
As stated, Sveta Nedelja in continental Croatia is going to bring in something that will provide some more positive reading material as the pandemic and the negative economic consequences caused by it continue.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 26th of June, 2020, in addition to using standard money, Sveta Nedelja near Zagreb is also introducing a cryptocurrency processing service that can be used when paying for public services carried out by Sveta Nedelja. According to Mayor Dario Zurovec, investing in technology is the only way forward.
”Our vision is to be a town for doing smart business and leading a comfortable life, we’re keeping pace with the times, and we often like to be leaders in change,” Zurovec stated.
According to Mayor Dario Zurovec, investing in technology is the only way forward.
”In Sveta Nedelja, there are companies that use cryptocurrencies, such as Mate Rimac’s Greyp Bikes, with which people will also be able to pay their utility fees. By introducing such services, we’re sending a message that we are facing the future and that we’re ready to dictate the pace of change,” assured Zurovec.
This move might seem confusing to some who don’t follow such trends, but it regards the conversion of cryptocurrency into Croatian kuna, according to the valid exchange rate at the time of the service. It will be performed through Electrocoin’s PayCek cryptocurrency payment processing platform, which will process the cryptocurrency when people pay for public services carried out by Sveta Nedelja.
