'Bitcoin family' start sponsored around the world tour

Dutchman Didi Taihuttu, his wife Romaine and their three daughters will travel the world in a Bitcoin branded camper van, visiting 250 cities in 50 countries on five continents.

Didi and Romaine said they sold everything they owned two years ago, including their house, two companies, cars, motorcycles and 70 pairs of shoes and exchanged all the earnings for bitcoin in order to live a quiet and minimalist lifestyle, home-school their three daughters, and support themselves by trading cryptocurrencies.

Now the family have been sponsored by the NDJ Investment Group to tour the globe with their 'sharing is caring' mission, where they plan to run a series of events to educate the poor and the unprivileged about cryptocurrency, but also to change common preconception about the bitcoin community.

After collecting the sponsored camper van, the Taihuttu family visited one of the NDJ's facilities in Sofia where the girls saw for the first time how bitcoin is mined.

After leaving Bulgaria, the 'Bitcoin Family' will head to events in Turkey, Switzerland and Spain.

Next they are planning to visit countries in Asia, Oceania, and Africa.
