In this regard, the KuCoin exchange conducted a survey on cryptocurrencies among Turks. The survey found that the consumers have turned to alternative investments, leading to an increased demand for cryptocurrencies. Approximately 40% of internet users aged 18-60 own cryptocurrencies or have traded digital assets in the past six months.
