Three partners had been chosen and invited into a memorandum of understanding with the bank to create the “Digital Turkish Lira Collaboration Platform.” The pool of programmers participating in the program is predicted to form in the following months, with the central bank thought to be keen to name on a wide variety of professionals.
The three first partners are defense company Aselsan, IT and defense giant Havelsan and TÜBİTAK Informatics, and Information Security Research Center.
