Bitcoin journalist Joe Hall recently visited Lugano, Switzerland, to validate its reputation as the most crypto-friendly city in the world. Lugano is known for its progressive acceptance of digital currencies and its leadership in bitcoin transactions. Hall visited the city's bitcoin schools and interviewed Adam Back, CEO of Blockstream, and Paolo Ardoino, CEO of Tether, to learn about the future of bitcoin and Lugano's role in crypto innovation. He also tested the feasibility of using only bitcoin for everyday expenses in Lugano, including meals and shopping, and found that Lugano not only supports bitcoin payments, but actively encourages them, demonstrating that a bitcoin-based lifestyle is entirely feasible here.
