In pursuit of these objectives, this collaboration will see the two companies undertaking a range of collaborative endeavors which include educational campaigns to promote the adoption of virtual assets such as Bitcoin, Blockchain, and Stablecoins like Tether (USDT) to facilitate cross-border payments. These initiatives will be strategically designed to highlight the efficiency and accessibility benefits of using digital assets in a compliant manner for businesses and individuals across Turkey, the Middle East, and North Africa.
