Event Overview

For many people, Blockchain has been synonymous with Bitcoin. Although bitcoins were one of the primary reasons for creation of blockchains. There have been a lot of developments in this technology and now, this technology has the potential to impact and boost operational efficiencies of large number of organizations across the globe. While the financial services may be at the forefront of these changes. This opportunity has presented itself with increased urgency across a wide range of sectors. Such as government and ministries, advertising, hospitality, health care, energy, food and agriculture—if there’s a business there’s a transaction, and wherever there’s a transaction there is an opportunity for blockchain.

As blockchain makes considerable forays into financial services pioneers are beginning to recognize the equally big opportunities it offers in areas like energy, transportation, health care and even the arts. However, many of the industries players are working in an uncoordinated or fragmented manner. This event will bring together the key stakeholders working in diverse fields, creating an exciting cross- industry pollination of ideas and approaches that will yield new insights and explore even more new opportunities for growth and more importantly help in shaping the future blockchain technology policies for the European organizations.

"The main goal of this forum is to create the more accessible and a much more diverse, policy-oriented platform where business and government leaders can learn how blockchain could impact their organizations and how they can seize the opportunity to reap the maximum benefits this budding technology has to offer. "

Hence, we at TraiCon will be hosting the “World BlockChain Congress– Turkey 2018” scheduled to take place on 8th and 9th November 2018 in Istanbul, Turkey. This two day summit is an educative platform comprising of both local and international case study presentations, highly interactive panel discussions and networking sessions.

We request all the key government sector stake holders, private sector stake holders and solution providers to support us and actively participate in this summit which focuses on the implementation of Blockchain technologies to improve efficiency of services and boost the economy of the country.


  • Political leaders from Turkey are reportedly looking at launching a national cryptocurrency in the country. According to a recent report the deputy chair of Turkey's Nationalist Movement Party and the country's former Industry Minister, has drafted a report to propose the development of a state-backed cryptocurrency. Though the technical specifics remain unclear at this time, the lawmaker stated that this crypto currency would aim to tokenize asset-backed securities for the issuance, which he argued would yield lower risks than the existing cryptocurrencies.

  • The report stated that such an asset basket would comprise of large public companies in the country's wealth fund such as of Turkish Airlines, the Istanbul Stock Exchange and Turk Telekom.

  • It was also stated that a clearer regulations were required for cryptocurrencies in an effort to monitor and control the cryptocurrency market as without proper regulations and a legal framework over cryptocurrencies could be used for illicit applications. It is also said that with the introduction of encouraging regulations after assessing all kinds of risks would enable the country to generate revenues from the cryptocurrency market, especially from cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin.

  • While on the other hand the other hand, Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs stated that the cryptocurrency and more particularly bitcoin were being frequently used for illegal activities, and is currently not regulated enough, making them a lot more volatile than normal currencies. It has also stated that buying and selling virtual currencies is not compatible with religion at this time, due to the fact that their valuation is open to speculation, they can be easily used in illegal activities like money laundering. Moreover as these cryptocurrencies were also not under the state’s audit and surveillance.

  • Though according to the recent news implies that Turkey is going to implement a unique cryptocurrency project. Nevertheless, the country has not yet prepared a legal framework for cryptocurrencies. It is also said that the government has already formed a working group which would focus on this issue. The government also admits the huge potential of blockchain to the country for digitalization and believes that blockchain can impact and revolutionize many sectors. It was also mentioned that cryptocurrencies are still beyond the legal boundaries in Turkey and thus the working group is just exploring them. The reports currently indicate that Turkey’s public finances and banking systems are quite stable and not subject to any shocks. Therefore, they would be able to survive reforming.
