One of the world’s most successful cryptocurrency exchanges Binance has been integrated successfully by Turkey’s leading bank Akbank, an official blog post from Binance confirmed the news on Sunday.

Akbank, Turkey’s most extensive bank offering private and commercial banking services since 1948, has been named as one of the most progressive and dynamic banking institutions by Binance.

As per the announcement, it is the first time a bank has ever merged its services with Binance.

The partnership will allow instant deposits and withdrawals of Turkish Lira via desktop or iOS app in exchange for the most economical rates in the market.

We are extremely thrilled that our firm has been welcomed by a country, which has embraced the concept of digital assets wholeheartedly. Together, we will eliminate the barriers on the way to financial independence, Zhao asserted.
