“Our goal is to become the leading crypto platform in Türkiye. This starts with listening to the community about their needs and investing in the market, Chief Marketing Officer at OKX, Haider Rafique said in a statement.

“We want to give the Turkish community a platform to explore, experiment and dream up the future with us. Perhaps we will see the next big thing come out of Türkiye with the support from us and other crypto companies,” Rafique added.

Turkey Turns to Crypto

The crypto market in Turkey has been on the rise with thousands of its citizens resorting to the use of crypto. This is as a result of the falling Lira which has lost a significant percentage of its value over the years due to inflation.

Inflation figures reached a 24-year peak of 85% last year October. Although the inflation has mostly stagnated this year, it hasn’t made any significant improvement, causing Turks to run to crypto as a hedge against the inflation ravaging the economy.
