3, the Czech National Bank has objected to Paralelní Polis using the term "Coin" to describe commemorative silver tokens it is currently minting. In 2018, a new law appeared giving sole rights to the word "Coin" to the CNB. "Czech National Bank sent us an official threat that if we continue to use the word 'Mince' on our site, we will be fined.
The bank claims to have a #Monopoly on the word," the Twitter post reads. "We're calling the coin a coin," he summarized. Since 2014, Paralelní Polis has become a well-known Bitcoin entity in the Czech capital, Prague, and includes facilities such as a cafe that accepts BTC payments.
The silver coins are among the collective's latest projects and include a nominal value of 0.01 BTC via a partnership with physical currency startup BitNotes.
