The AAX referral program is characterized by a prominent presence at Istanbul airport: in the coming days, promotional materials will attract the attention of all visitors to the country.
Istanbul and Turkey are among the most influential cryptocurrency and blockchain centers in the world: more than 16% of the country’s population holds Bitcoin (BTC) or at least one altcoin, according to a recent survey.
Ben Caselin, vice president of global marketing and head of research and strategy at AAX, stressed the vital importance of this region for his company’s marketing and adoption strategies:
Our presence at the Istanbul Summit also marks our expansion into Turkey as one of our target markets. In Turkey, there is an understanding of Bitcoin and digital assets in addition to trading and investing alone. Digital assets, including stablecoins, are a necessity here and AAX is poised to serve this market beyond the confines of its urban centers to bring the benefits of digital assets to all.
Alex Bornyakov, Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation in Ukraine, entrepreneur Carl Runefelt and MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor will be among the speakers at the summit.
Anadolu Aydinli has been appointed national director of the AAX for Turkey
To accelerate its adoption in Turkey, the AAX team has decided to appoint Anadolu Aydinli Country Director in Turkey. Mr. Aydinli, a Turkish-American lawyer, will lead AAX’s optimized regional strategy for introducing cryptocurrencies to a new generation of investors.
Mr. Aydinli is excited about the opportunities his new role offers to the AAX and Web3 ecosystem in Eurasia as a whole:
Everyone wants to establish themselves as much as possible in a crucial market like Turkey, but we take it a step further by focusing in particular on local partnerships, sustainability and philanthropy. Today we have one of the most crypto-native teams in Turkey, with deep trading and product knowledge to help accelerate our growth in this market we call home. We are ready to not only continue the digital asset adoption journey in Turkey, but also to help our users reach their maximum potential through our product.
Additionally, on July 26, 2022, AAX’s Ben Caselin hosted a successful welcome event in Istanbul for local cryptocurrencies and the blockchain community.
