Istanbul, Turkey

Reason for this visit

Turkey has been in economic turmoil for the past few months. Lira, the fiat currency of Turkey, has depreciated sharply, which prompts the locals to swap the lira for bitcoin, foreign currencies, and gold. Also, Turkey's central bank had banned cryptocurrency payments in mid-April, meaning local companies are not allowed to make transactions involving crypto assets. Regulatory uncertainty, extremely high volatility and crime were cited as key reasons behind the decision. To help investors know more about the local exchanges, the survey team will go to Turkey for on-site visits.

This time the survey team visited the cryptocurrency exchange Bitospher in Istanbul, Turkey, with specific address at Yenikoy Neigh. Kibris Sehitleri Ave. Tuncer Ersoy Carsisi Sit. C Apt. No: 178/3/4 Bodrum Mugla.
