Welcome to The Istanbul Blockchain Week 2022
Located in northwest Turkey, Istanbul is a city that needs no introduction. As Europe’s most populous city and one of the oldest, it is a vast city of cultural and historical importance to the world. Istanbul was initially founded in the 7th Century BCE, and people have lived in the city for thousands of years.
Over the centuries, the city has changed and adapted to the needs of its people and the technology available. Now, in the 21st century we enter a new digital age, Istanbul is the perfect place to host the Istanbul Blockchain Week.
Turkey has a thriving blockchain ecosystem
20% of the Turkish population owns or uses cryptocurrency, and over 25 million Turks are still unbanked. Because of this, Turkey is one of the most fertile grounds for the growth of cryptocurrencies and decentralized technology.
“Turkey represents the ideal location to bring together the heavyweights of web3 alongside policymakers, venture capital, and large web2 brands looking to break into web3,”
says Erhan Korhaliller, founder of Istanbul Blockchain Week and CEO of Blockchain PR Agency EAK Digital.
