Tether and BTguru Sign MoU to Boost Digital Asset Education in Türkiye

Tether Operations Limited, a leading company in the digital asset industry, and BTguru, a prominent technology and strategy firm specializing in virtual and crypto assets, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote digital asset education in Türkiye. This collaboration aims to enhance awareness and understanding of blockchain and peer-to-peer technologies among private and public stakeholders in the region.

Tether EDU’s Broader Vision

The MoU is part of Tether’s broader Tether EDU initiative, which seeks to make education more accessible globally. By supporting educational programs in emerging markets, Tether aims to prepare individuals for the digital age, offering lifelong learning opportunities that extend beyond traditional education models.

Key Objectives of the MoU

The agreement with BTguru focuses on developing comprehensive programs to introduce stakeholders to the benefits of blockchain technology. It also aims to leverage BTguru’s connections to facilitate discussions with financial institutions in Türkiye. Additionally, the partnership will explore real-world asset tokenization use cases for banks and evaluate regional payment network scenarios using BTguru Core.

Strategic Relationships and Regional Impact

Tether’s commitment to education is evident through its ongoing discussions with a regulated digital asset infrastructure platform in the MENA region. This partnership enhances digital asset education in Türkiye and the Middle East, solidifying Tether’s mission to form strategic relationships that drive its educational goals.

According to the International Trade Administration U.S. Department of Commerce, Türkiye ranks as the fourth-largest nation in cryptocurrency transaction volume. Chainalysis reports that Türkiye received approximately $170 billion in crypto transactions over the past year, reflecting significant adoption driven by the need to counteract currency devaluation.

Statements from Tether and BTguru Leaders

Paolo Ardoino, CEO of Tether, stated, “Tether and BTguru believe in the transformative power of digital assets and peer-to-peer technologies. This MoU has the potential to provide a solid foundation for the responsible and informed use of digital assets. We are excited to be part of a movement that could promote freedom and educate people across Türkiye.”

Can Bükülmez, Partner at BTguru, commented, “BTguru is excited to engage in discussions with an industry giant like Tether. We are keen to enable new business lines with Tether and evaluate the introduction of their scale into Türkiye’s banking verticals and emerging digital assets businesses.”
