In response to these developments, the world’s largest exchange, Binance, announced adjustments to its services in Turkey today. The platform will maintain accessibility for Turkish users on Binance, albeit with gradual removal of Turkish language options over three months. Additionally, all direct marketing activities targeting Turkish users will cease.

“These changes reflect Binance’s commitment to regulatory compliance and collaboration with authorities,” the announcement stated. The exchange reassured users that all funds remain secure, with continued availability of deposit and withdrawal functions.
