In some European countries, including Nordic nations, Wednesday is celebrated as a ‘Little Saturday.’ It is a great day to relax a little and hang out with your friends and teammates. To observe this tradition, we have decided to collect and post some fun facts about crypto. No, there will be nothing about Bitcoin Pizza Day on this list.
