8. The mentality of residents in the Czech Republic

The main value for a Czech is family. All life is built around it. After work, Czechs spend time with their loved ones, and on weekends they travel and have picnics. Czechs are very calm, and judicious, and rarely show emotions. They are also friendly and practical - they rarely buy unnecessary trinkets and try to spend money wisely. Every young person here aspires to get higher education.

The residents of the country have a high level of education. Everyone is obliged to attend school until the age of 15. Every third citizen of the Czech Republic has a secondary education, and every tenth has higher education. Czech specialists have very high qualifications, and they are in demand not only in their own country, but also abroad. The Czech Republic has a low unemployment rate - no more than 2.5%.

9. Advertising in the Czech Republic

The main feature of marketing in the Czech Republic is the focus on the older generation. Why? Because the size of cash savings and pension payments from pensioners allows you to live without denying yourself anything. The older generation more often goes on vacations and travels, buys expensive cars, makes gifts to children and grandchildren, purchases expensive goods, and uses the services of healthcare companies. The older generation in the Czech Republic makes up about a third of the population, but Czech marketers understand that the demand for a marketing strategy that targets the older generation will continue to increase. Also, this group has one feature: in the field of the entertainment business, this group is considered unpromising in the Czech Republic.

10. Cryptocurrency in the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic became one of the European countries that are loyal to Bitcoin transactions, even before the cryptocurrency boom in 2017. So, in April 2015, the Czech National Bank issued a document that determined the state's attitude towards cryptocurrencies.

The Czech Republic was one of the first in Europe to take steps to smoothly regulate cryptocurrencies and their status in the country. Back in April 2015, the former governor of the Czech National Bank, Miroslav Singer, published a summary “Security of Internet payments and virtual currency from the point of view of the Czech National Bank”. According to this document, operations with cryptocurrencies were not limited in any way by the law of the country, only the norms of EU legislation were applied to them.

This allows you to freely play with cryptocurrency in the Czech Republic: for example, in Prague, you can rent a hotel for bitcoins and pay a check in some cafe (in particular, in a separate institution of the Paralelni Polis center and in 80 other outlets in the country). You can also pay with bitcoins in the Alza online equipment store.

In addition, dozens of blockchain companies operate in the Czech Republic, such as fintech startups SDK.finance, Cashila, finGOOD, and the bitcoin banking service wBTCb. General Bytes from the Czech Republic is recognized as one of the largest crypto ATMs in the world. They account for 30.6% of the global cryptocurrency ATM market. 

According to representatives of the Czech National Bank and the Czech Ministry of Finance, in the near future, new rules and laws on cryptocurrencies in the country will not exist. So, at the moment, the Czech Republic is still one of the most attractive countries where you can conduct crypto business and carry out transactions with digital currencies. Cryptocurrencies in the Czech Republic are mainly subject to regulation according to EU directives, in particular the AML-5 code, which prevents money laundering and illegal financial transactions.
