Major crypto exchange Binance is looking for managerial staff to establish its office in Turkey, according to job postings on LinkedIn.
Binance listed a total of five open positions on its LinkedIn company page as of Dec. 6 to establish a local presence in Istanbul, Turkey. The company is seeking managers for its finance, compliance, marketing, and PR divisions.
Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao recently detailed the exchange’s plans for Turkey in an interview with Cointelegraph. He described Turkey as “a vibrant country that has illustrated one of the strongest demands and fast-growing interest in crypto,” adding that they would build a local team of 10–20 people. He also stated that Binance will soon add direct Turkish lira bank transfers to the platform.
Compliance is a key metric for efforts in Turkey
Zhao noted in the interview that Binance is taking regulatory issues very seriously, which is reflected in their search for a compliance officer. The local compliance officer will assist the Binance Turkey team “in all compliance and regulatory matters with international regulatory bodies including supporting for registrations,” per the job posting.
As Cointelegraph reported on Nov. 15, Binance added support for the Turkish lira and Bitcoin (BTC), XRP, Ether (ETH) trading pairs with local digital wallet partner Papara.
Binance continues rapid expansion
Binance has significantly expanded its offerings and services in different jurisdictions. Recently, the exchange added four trading pairs for the Russian ruble including Bitcoin, XRP, Ether and Binance Coin (BNB).
Earlier this week, the exchange acquired decentralized app information startup DappReview. DappReview said that the platform’s independence will not be compromised by the acquisition.

After Paul Tudor Jones, Chamath Palihapitya, another Billionaire VC investor came out on CNBC yesterday, expressing his fondness for Bitcoin and its’ non-correlational with the stock markets. Nevertheless, their bet is actually based on opposing views for the economy. While PTJ is banking on BTC as an inflationary hedge, Chamath is suggesting a deflationary spiral. Moreover, in case of the latter scenario, we could witness another drop in the price of assets, including Bitcoin and gold. Inflation or a Deflationary Spiral Downwards? The COVID-19 ridden economy has been torn between the two with an inevitable global slowdown. The Government have continually printed heaps of cash to maintain liquidity in the markets. The increase in supply of US Dollar suggests the onset of high inflation. However, credit defaults, employment and decreased GDP could have investors flocking to cash. Hence, as the demand for cash increases and spending decreases the price of goods and services are likely to fall. Chamath has been a long standing advocate of Bitcoin. In fact, his VC fund growth in the last couple of years has been…May 15, 2020
Twitter Facebook reddit Pinterest Hacker News LinkedIn Tumblr Google+ VKontakte Litecoin price lower high pattern and higher low pattern leads to consolidation at $35. A triangle breakout is nigh and if supported by increased trading volume it could catapult LTC/USD above $50. Litecoin price has been narrowing towards $35 since the crash that took place last week. Support was established at $25. The recovery that ensued stepped above $30 but failed to break the resistance at $40. The lower high and higher low pattern formed in the last seven days has resulted in the formation of a symmetrical triangle pattern. Meanwhile, consolidation in the zone at $35 suggests that a breakout is in the picture and coupled with the triangle pattern, is likely to launch LTC/USD into a trajectory targeting $50 and $60 levels. Litecoin price analysis Litecoin’s immediate upside is limited by the 50 Simple Moving Average (SMA) on the 4-hour chart. A break above $40 will definitely boost the price upwards but the buyers should be prepared to deal with the resistance at the 100 SMA. From a…Mar 19, 2020
Could the coronavirus be helping to drive the current price rally in Bitcoin? The CEO of InvestorsHub.com certainly thinks so. Clem Chambers makes the case that the virus’s outbreak has made safe haven assets more desirable. For him, Bitcoin trumps gold thanks to its portability and convertibility. Is Virus Behind BTC’s 2020 Gains? The notion of Bitcoin as a safe haven asset is an increasingly popular one. However, a more established use case for the crypto asset is certainly speculation. This makes it difficult to determine the exact cause of sudden increases in buying pressure during periods of global uncertainly. As NewsBTC has reported previously, there are plenty that believe it to be speculation on the existence of safe haven investors driving Bitcoin rallies, not capital protection itself. It’s undeniable that the Bitcoin price has gone up since the outbreak of the coronavirus late last year. However, there are a myriad of factors that could be behind the recent gains, including the upcoming Bitcoin halving. One crypto industry observer of the opinion that Bitcoin is indeed serving as a safe…Feb 14, 2020
In the early morning of July 17, Bitcoin plummeted by a thousand points, and the lowest fell to $9355, breaking the 60-day moving average. It also fell below the 60-day moving average for the first time since the formation of the bitcoin trend, forming the biggest correction. As of press time, Bitcoin temporarily remained near $9374.57, falling by 10.70% within 24 hours. In addition to Bitcoin, 93% of the top 100 cryptocurrencies have seen significant declines. Among them, ETH fell 13.69%, XRP fell 5.91%, EOS fell 15.44%. The general decline in the encryption market was at the time of the Libra hearing in the United States, which forced people to consider the connection between them. At 22 o’clock on the evening of July 16th, Beijing time, Senate Banking Committee held a hearing on the Facebook encryption project Libra. The Libra digital currency and data privacy issues became the subject of this hearing. Since the Senate Banking Committee Chairman Mike Crapo announced the official start of the Libra hearing, the globally-acclaimed hearing began more than two hours of question-and-answer wars.

U.S. authorities say Prince Andrew is refusing to help them investigate Jeffrey Epstein’s sex crimes. The Duke of York said he’d help law enforcement. But now the FBI and prosecutors say he’s gone silent. He’s following Queen Elizabeth’s credo, “Never complain. Never explain.” And he’s not the only Royal who should give you the creeps. The U.S. prosecutor and FBI agents seeking Prince Andrew’s help to investigate the late Jeffrey Epstein’s sex crimes say the British Royal has ghosted them. The prosecutor reports they’ve had “zero cooperation” from Prince Andrew and his lawyers. That’s despite promising to aid law enforcement in November: I am willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations, if required. This week, the U.S. attorney called on Prince Andrew to stop playing games: Prince Andrew himself is accused of sexual misconduct and he also spent a great deal of time with Jeffrey Epstein. So it’s time to stop playing games and to come forward to do the right thing and answer questions. The victims’ lawyer wonders what Prince Andrew is trying to hide….Jan 28, 2020
Bitcoin is searching for a direction. After a wild couple months in crypto markets that saw a ferocious sell-off as the coronavirus spread, followed by a 30 percent price rebound as governments and central banks announced trillions of dollars of emergency financing, the oldest and largest cryptocurrency has settled into a range between $6,700 and $7,400.

Earlier this year, before the extent of coronavirus-related economic damage become clear, bulls had pegged their hopes on May’s halving, a once-every-four-years reduction in the pace of new supplies of the cryptocurrency. The reduced supply and continuing demand from investors was supposed to drive up the price. The German bank BayernLB predicted in 2019 that the halving could drive bitcoin to $90,000 or higher. But the hopes of a halving-fueled price…Apr 14, 2020
Bitcoin (BTC) closed the week up at $7,513 which was a 5.65% increase from the opening price of $7,111. It was a turbulent week with Bitcoin finding new lows for the quarter of $6,430, which invoked an impressive 16% bounce to close the week. Bitcoin has continued to outperform the other cryptocurrencies, demonstrated by the 7-day performance for Bitcoin recording a 9.19% increase, whereas Ethereum’s Ether token (ETH) has barely moved, while XRP has lost around 5% of its value. As such, there appears to be a disconnect developing between Bitcoin and the rest of the market. Cryptocurrency market 7-day view.
