The organizations will work together to introduce a digital transformation project based on the use of cryptocurrencies as a means of payment in the city. The main goal of this initiative will be to provide the residents and guests of Torrevieja a unique experience with the creation of the first-of-kind crypto ecosystem with implementation of modern technologies. Emphasis will be on expanding trade opportunities, promoting tourism, sustainability development, promoting employment, and attracting local and international investment.
