Lithuania to Offer World’s First Collectible Crypto Coin in 2020

Lithuania, which is trying to position itself as a financial-technology hub for start-ups, will offer the world’s first crypto coin for collectors in the first half next year.

The central bank said Monday it will release a digital coin dedicated to the Baltic nation’s 1918 declaration of independence. The bank’s e-shop will offer 24,000 collector tokens based on blockchain technology. The coins won’t enter into circulation and won’t be legal tender.
