Following the warm welcome Bitpanda received upon launching in Turkey, we are thrilled to announce that we are now also adding new crypto-to-fiat trading pairs to Bitpanda Pro. This means you can start depositing Turkish lira (TRY) effective immediately, so you are able to start trading in the BTC/TRY, ETH/TRY and LINK/TRY from the 7th of December, 2020 at 10:00 AM CET.

Turkey has one of the highest adoption rates for investing and trading in the cryptocurrency markets marked by strong growth, with users looking to trade on a reliable and user-friendly cryptocurrency exchange.

In addition to its current offer of BTC/EUR, BTC/CHF, XRP/EUR, XRP/CHF, ETH/EUR, ETH/CHF, MIOTA/EUR and BTC/GBP crypto-to-fiat trading pairs, Bitpanda Pro is now expanding this range to include Bitcoin-to-Turkish lira (BTC/TRY), Ethereum-to-Turkish lira (ETH/TRY) and LINK-to-Turkish lira (LINK/TRY).
