I wrote last week about different blockchain efforts around the world, among both public and private-sector players. This article caught my eye as well, about how Turkey is making huge strides and is broadly focused on using the tech to change how currency is better used to make the economy much more efficient.
A few stats in this article really got my attention - over 60 percent of the Turkish public have a positive view of blockchain and cryptocurrencies (twice the rate in the U.S.). And, 46 percent of the Turkish public would prefer the economy operate on NO CASH. Public support is critical for making a major change like using blockchain to support economic activity. Turkey seems to be building it. This is worth watching . . .
Turkey is making huge strides toward becoming one of the world’s premier locations for blockchain and cryptocurrency adoption. A nation that has often been seen as a key strategic partner to the world’s biggest and most influential countries due to its positioning between east and west might yet become the central hub for this nascent industry
