A new ban in Turkey will prohibit crypto holders from using their digital assets for payments, in addition to preventing payment providers from providing fiat onramps for crypto exchanges.
According to a Friday announcement by the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey, the ban will come into effect on April 30, 암호 화폐 결제 솔루션 및 파트너십을 불법화.
The bank stated, "결제 서비스 및 전자 화폐 발행에서 암호화 자산의 직간접 적 사용"은 금지됩니다..
While banks are excluded from the regulation, 즉, 사용자는 은행 계좌에서 전신 송금을 사용하여 암호 화폐 거래소에 터키 리라를 입금 할 수 있습니다., payment providers will be unable to provide deposit or withdrawal services for crypto exchanges.
Payment providers and digital wallets are widely used in Turkey to transfer fiat funds to crypto exchanges and vice versa. Major global exchange Binance partnered with local payment provider Papara when they first entered the Turkish market to provide a lira onramp for several different cryptocurrencies.
This new regulation means that users have two weeks to clear their balances if they exclusively use payment providers as fiat-to-crypto gateways.
역사적으로, the Turkish government has always had a tight grip on the payment ecosystem. 에 2016, Turkey banned major global payment provider PayPal in the country.
Crypto regulation is a hot topic for Turkey in recent months. 지난 달, the Turkish Ministry of Treasury and Finance announced that they are monitoring the crypto ecosystem and working with the Central Bank, Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency, and Capital Markets Board to regulate crypto.
