The Ministry of Treasury and Finance's major Turkish financial body announced wide cooperation with other related institutions to study the crypto trends. The LoginCasino team follows the latest cryptocurrency news, describing what Turkey is going to do in the sector and how other states react to Bitcoin and related tokens.
The crypto boom has shaken not only ordinary people but even whole states. A lot of countries began discussions on launching digital currencies while closely looking at how the situation with independent ones (like Bitcoin or Ethereum) is developing. Turkey also joined that process and announced wide cooperation in this sector.
On March 1, the Ministry of Treasury and Finance of Turkey presented the deal between it and other financial institutions. Thus, the Capital Markets Board and the Turkish Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency both joined the initiative. According to the press release, they will analyze the latest crypto trends and monitor the global reaction to the financial phenomenon.
The 2019 report shows that Turkey has the biggest proportion of people who are using or own cryptocurrencies. The 20% level of involved citizens is tightly linked to the great inflation in the country where the local lira lost 18% to the US dollar in 2018 and another 10% in 2019.
