“We are really excited with the response we received from the Turkish community. With their support, we successfully pulled off one of the largest crypto events in Turkey. We’ve already added a Turkish language option to the Huobi Global website and will also be rolling out Turkish language customer support and a Turkish language mobile app. Other than this, we’ve also launched Huobi Tokens for the Turkish users, which gives them access to Huobi Prime and Fast Track. We also hope to have a crypto-to-fiat onramp for Turkish users by the end of the year.”
Huobi Global CEO Livio Weng emphasized on Turkey as an important destination and the need to build the Huobi ecosystem here. Huobi clarified that Livio was part of a Huobi-sponsored meet-up in Istanbul which was well attended by traders, crypto-enthusiasts and blockchain professionals. The event was also attended by the digital economy expert Erkan Öz and cryptocurrency mentor Ismail Hakki Polat.
Huobi sustained by adding that Turkey suits well as a favorable destination for cryptocurrency proliferation since it has the highest per capita ownership of digital coins. Huobi further added that this statistic was in comparison to all other nations surveyed. A staggering 20% or 1 in 5 of all Turkish citizens own some form of cryptocurrency. Huobi backed this number by appreciating the interest and passion shown by the Turkish trading community.
