The Turkish Lira value has indeed improved against the bitcoin price much ahead of an important conference between the country’s financial chief as well as global investors.
The BTC/TRY did record a 22 percent drop since establishing its intraday high at 45382-fiat. A political spat between the Turkish as well as U.S. governments last week had actually influenced the latter to double the tariffs on Turkish steel as well as aluminum. As a result, the Lira value did drop to a record low of $0.139 on Monday, shaking an already weakening economy to further extent.
Bitcoin Price Drops against Turkish Lira as Treasury Tries Calm Investors
The currency did start to reverse its trend only on Wednesday when Qatar calmed the market by rather promising to issue loans worth $15 billion in order to improve the Turkish economic sentiments. The TRY/USD did rise by 6 percent in response to the decisive push.
Also, 2,000 international investors did further improve the fundamentals around Lira, influencing a 2.5 percent rise against the US dollar today.
Before that, Turkey’s central bank has indeed initiated their response to improve the market’s condition by injecting liquidity for banks and imposing inflexible restrictions on currency swaps a well as similar foreign currency transactions. The impositions must have led people to opt for solutions that do not fall under the government’s jurisdiction, bitcoin actually being one of them.
On the day Lira dropped, two of the most important cryptocurrency exchanges in Turkey reported over 100 percent increase in trading volume. BTCTurk data did show more than 130 percent surge in the crypto volume.
The bitcoin price did begin to tumble against the Lira only after Qatar’s loan pledge announcement, indicating that people are starting to take shelter under decentralized assets in times of political as well as economic crisis. Off late Iranian exchanges had also witnessed a surge in crypto volume in response to the authorities’ financial impositions. Before that, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, China, India, and Greece had also seen people flocking to cryptocurrencies when actually being subjected to capital restrictions, hyperinflation, and demonetization.
As far as the political and economic situation of Turkey is concerned, the country has always been at risk. Their deficits are increasing, their corporate debt is mounting, their inflation rate is also going north, and the Turkish government has rather refused to raise interest rates.
Turkey does not appear to be changing its policies fast enough, though. As a result, the risk is mounting that the Turkish economy may contract for a while.
The result of the Albayrak’s interaction with the international investors, especially against the outside world’s rather unfavorable perception towards Turkey’s methods of dealing with the economy, could indeed bring more clarity on the subject. But should the situation continue to get worse, the country’s libertarians would no doubt eventually prefer to keep their money into non-government assets.
