Most likely, a number of bitcoin enthusiasts due to the ongoing rising inflation in the country (16%), devaluation of the Turkish Lira, the cost of which has fallen by more than 40%, and us sanctions.
Last week, a record depreciation of the Turkish Lira had triggered a growing volume of trade digital currencies on local exchanges by 150% and bitcoin was trading at $500 dollars more than in foreign markets.
