How to Buy Cryptocurrency in Poland
Buying cryptocurrency in Poland
In today’s day and age of new technology, there is a worldwide trend where most countries create or attempt to develop their very own currencies. Polish cryptocurrencies can also be found among thousands of these virtual currencies. As development continues to grow and information regarding cryptocurrencies spreads further, the world will experience even more benefits of new technologies. Even though it lacks legal regulations regarding cryptocurrencies, Poland doesn’t hinder its operations of participating in the creation of cryptocurrencies. There are several Polish projects that haven't gained world popularity yet, but are certainly important. The Golem Project (GNT) is one of them. Founded by Julian Zawistowski, it is basically a cryptocurrency supercomputer. GNT's goal was the creation of a decentralized open source node for its users. The central part of the project was to guarantee that GNT’s creation would minimize spending on research, as well as the analysis of detailed data.
