The Bitcoin Growth in the Netherlands The Bitcoin Community in the Netherlands is increasingly finding more followers around the country. Although the government is relatively opposed to the digital currency, the country is trying to set a good example for its European counterparts. Last spring, only two roads parallel to each other on a canal were appointed to the unofficial "Bitcoin Boulevard" in the Hague. With nine restaurants and an art gallery that Bitcoin will accept, the Boulevard will continue to drive Bitcoin acceptance and give the image of the pedestrian mile a new, modern look. In May of this year, Bitcoin enthusiasts of the Dutch city of Arnhem (Arnhem Bitcoinstad) took note of the idea and also launched their own Bitcoin Boulevard.Similar projects are planned in the whole of the Netherlands.
