The Royal Wedding is a hot topic for the news outlets across the UK. And as usual there will be gifts to the royal couple. One of them will be a little unusual, but very much in line with hyped trends of nowadays.

Royal Coin, a brand-new digital currency, will be gifted to Prince Harry and Megan Markle on May 19th. British Monarchist Society and Foundation, and organization which aims to support and promote British traditions and heritage, endorsed the new coin together with ICO Rocket who advertised the ICO.

The main goal of a new digital currency is to be not only a gift to the couple, but also provide support to the charities of royal couple's choice and to help fund a unique “Royal Wedding edition” of the Crown and Country Magazine.

CEO of ICO Rocket Shahar Namer elaborated, that the Royal Coin “was born out of goal of engaging people to be a part of Royal Wedding in an entirely new and modern way” and that it has a point of supporting three good causes as a gift to the royal couple.

British Royal Weddings are always a widely celebrated and broadcast events for a whole country, so people naturally flock towards such projects to express their interest and participate in a gift to the newlyweds.

Most Europeans believe that in ten years digital currencies will continue to be in demand, but they do not have the same confidence about Bitcoin. This is reported by Cryptonews, citing a study of the bitFlyer.

10 thousand people from ten European countries took part in the online survey. Of these, 63% believe in a “bright future” cryptocurrency. However, not all Europeans are confident in the future of Bitcoin - only 55% believe that the first cryptocurrency will exist in ten years.

It is also noteworthy that, despite the fall in prices of most cryptocurrencies that lasted for almost a year, the majority of respondents positively assessed the prospects for the development of the market.

Most of the “crypto-optimists” turned out to live in Norway - 73% of the inhabitants of this Scandinavian country are convinced that a decade later, digital currencies will still be in society. This is followed by Italy (68%), the Netherlands and Poland close the top four (67% each).

But the exact form of cryptocurrency will exist, almost no one knows. Only 8% believe that they will become money, and 7% - a tool for investment or a means of preserving value.

The fact that Bitcoin is not generating as much support as other cryptocurrencies is in part a symptom of the market’s volatility, but is also a direct impact of the constant media attention that is associated to its volatility.
