As we see growing need for digital currencies around the world and some real life use of those currencies, there are still some countries banned cryptocurrencies fully or partially.

The country had worlds 4th highest cryptocurrency use rate due to inflation of Turkish currency in 2020 while digital currencies were highly unregulated.

However, 1st quarter of 2021 was when Turkey acted toward regulators. It was caused by collapsing of biggest crypto exchange in Turkey and founders were blamed fraud.

Turkey banned to use cryptocurrencies as payment and defined it as an asset.




The government is planning to ban crypto currencies and launch its own digital currency. This would help to their central bank as some state. 

According to Reuters, the planned legislation will impose a "general prohibition on all activities by any individual on mining, generating, holding, selling, (or) dealing" in digital currencies as a "medium of exchange, store of value and a unit of account."
