According to local news reports, Turkey is planning to launch its official cryptocurrency by the end of the next year. Resmi Gazete published a document on Monday, which says that the first trials of the country’s digital country should be conducted and finalized by the end of 2020.

The document further read that the main objective of Turkey’s cryptocurrency is to establish a financial sector with a strong institutional structure that can help boost the country’s economy and support Istanbul’s goal of becoming an attractive global financial center.

 

China to roll out its CBDC anytime soon.
