Prince Philip of Serbia calms rumors of Arab country Bitcoin adoption

Prince Filip Karađorđević, known as Philip Karageorgevitch in English, placated rumors that an Arab country would “soon” adopt Bitcoin (BTC) as legal tender. In an interview Philip delivered from Serbia, the prince explained that Bitcoin adoption is an inevitability for all countries.

Nowadays, Serbia is a parliamentary republic, although some Serbs support the creation of a parliamentary monarchy, similar to the United Kingdom.
