Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the president of Turkey, shared new details about the country’s e-Human project powered by blockchain before Turkey’s national blockchain summit. Cointelegraph Turkey indicated that the e-Human project would be based on blockchain tech to keep all data, services, and capabilities used by the system under protection.
The e-Human project’s name looks like a sci-fi name, but it will work as a digital service point, which the Turkish presidency used to share data about its services and tools related to remote education, career, and talent acquisition.
It is expected that from the e-Human portal, the students could access events and educational content, new graduates and public employees could access job and internship opportunities, and information related to certified training for public employees and career fairs held in Turkey. The main purpose of this project is to create and increase employability and support the development of the citizens.
Turkey is heading toward the crypto and blockchain world, such as Turkey’s national car company TOGG previously announced its strategic partnership with Avalanche blockchain’s developer Ava Labs. Their intention with this partnership was to develop safe and fast mobility services with smart contracts.
Before President Erdoğan went against cryptocurrencies, Turkey was known as a crypto-friendly country. Due to President’s opposition, in April 2021, Turkey banned crypto payments in local goods and services.
Despite taking an anti-crypto stance, the government continued to explore the ecosystem while building several blockchain projects. Turkey also announced its National Blockchain Infrastructure plans, but then the pandemic came, due to which it didn’t get time to update.
Now, Turkey is home to several global events, such as Blockchain Economy Istanbul and Istanbul Blockchain Week. The local developers of Turkey are also working hard to bring the next Ethereum developer community, DevCon to Istanbul.
According to recent Chainalysis data, Turkey was among one of the fastest-growing crypto markets and was in the top 20 countries in terms of crypto adoption.
