The second-largest global cryptocurrency exchange, OKX, has expanded its services to Turkish users by launching OKX TR, a localised version of its platform.

Announced on February 27, OKX TR aims to cater specifically to the Turkish market by offering a Turkish Lira fiat on-ramp and deposit options through a collaboration with several local banks such as Fibabanka, VakifBank, Ziraat Bankasi, Is Bankasi, Sekerbank, and Türkiye Finans.

OKX TR will support major cryptocurrency pairs including USDT/TRY, BTC/TRY, and ETH/TRY, in addition to providing sophisticated crypto functionalities tailored for the region.

The platform's launch emphasises the inclusion of the OKX Wallet, a non-custodial Web3 wallet developed by OKX Global.

This feature allows Turkish users to easily access and manage nonfungible tokens (NFTs) and decentralised apps (dApps), showcasing the company's effort to enhance the crypto experience in Turkey.
