ICF Church, a zealous church in Zurich, Switzerland, is set to begin accepting Bitcoin donations from worshippers.

The common theory with most churches is that they’re traditional and are beholden to time-honored traditions. Whereas a number of churches are actually quite keen on adopting the latest inventions that technology has brought to bear. Example is a church in Switzerland that is set to begin accepting Bitcoin donations.

The digital currency-accepting church is ICF Church, located in Zurich, Switzerland. It’s an evangelical church and among the largest in the country. Its parishioners are actually pretty young, and the church itself is a big supporter of cutting-edge technologies.

That is why accepting Bitcoin donations makes perfect sense for the church. ICF Church spokesman Nicolas Legler said:

Crypto (digital) currencies and the blockchain technology will change our daily lives more and more in upcoming years.

Cryptocurrencies will be applied, whether it is Bitcoin or any other currency that is controlled by the state. We are convinced that this technology will soon belong to our daily lives.

Keeping Recent with New Tech

It makes perfect sense for the ICF Church in Zurich, Switzerland, to accept cryptographic currency. Many churches have long seized upon technological innovations to spread their ministry, from using radio to broadcast to rural audiences to having online sermons so that people can download and view at their ease.

The church in Zurich raises the majority of its income from its parishioners. Being youngsters, they are more tuned into the most recent technological patterns, for example, crypto, and it doesn’t hurt that Switzerland has been attempting to build up itself as a crypto center.

Bitmain Technologies, the substantial Chinese Bitcoin mining operation, is extending to Switzerland because of China doing everything conceivable to end crypto mining inside its country. It was likewise only a couple of years back that the Swiss city of Zug began a pilot venture where citizens could pay for government services by means of bitcoins. (One marvels if the city chose to hold any of those bitcoins or not. In the event that it did, at that point the city made an immense benefit.)

As cryptocurrency becomes more accepted, it’ll likely become a common sight to see a church passing around their wallet address instead of the collection plate.

As digital money turns out to be more accepted, it’ll likely turn into a typical sight to see a church going around their wallet address rather than the accumulation plate.

What are your thoughts about the ICF Church in Zurich beginning to accept Bitcoin donations? Will crypto-currency replace fiat donations down the road? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Bitcoin and other crypto currencies has taken a big hit in brutal bear market of 2018 but that’s not stopping Switzerland to allow cryptocurrencies to fully access conventional banking system within the country. Switzerland is currently in progress and drafting rules and regulations for such collaborations.

Heinz Tännler, Swiss expert & finance director of Zug canton, told media earlier that politicians were moving to allow crypto companies to work with banks, adding that Switzerland’s central bank, financial supervisor and federal government “are willing to help”.

He said: “We hope to clarify relationships by the end of the year at the latest.

“Time is pressing, other jurisdictions such as Malta and Singapore are very active and making a lot of effort to attract these companies. The lack of access to bank services is a significant competitive disadvantage.”

“We have to push certain national institutions to resolve this problem quickly and effectively, but that now seems to be going well.”

Blockchain becoming the global phenomenon 

The concept of Blockchain is interesting and attractive for all the countries, many countries may disagree on the existence and usage of cryptocurrencies, but all of them agree with the fact concept of blockchain is not going anywhere and governments can benefit from this technology in various fields, but if you ask any expert of blockchain, he would tell you that success of Blockchain technology has to be linked with existence of crypto currencies, without crypto currencies, and ecosystem can’t exist, many governments around the world are slowly recognizing the fact and Switzerland is definitely on the right track if they allow crypto currencies to work in collaboration with the Banks, because many banks around the world are not allowing crypto currencies to offer services through them, but this initiative will open many doors in that regards.
