Interest in the virtual currency Bitcoin is relatively low in Croatia. Bitcoins, which have become popular because of their ability to be used to anonymously purchase anything on the Internet, can now be used as currency in Croatia in 15 places. Bitcoin is decentralized digital money and is the currency of the Internet and is distributed worldwide. Unlike traditional currencies such as dollars, Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoins. As such, it is more resistant to wild inflation and corrupt banks.
