Turkey & Crypto donation

A popular Turkish singer Haluk Levent received regulatory approval from the Turkish financial regulatory body to receive crypto donations to help the country. 

Many reports noted that accepting crypto donations directly by the Turkish authorities was against Turkey’s crypto laws but still the Country allowed Haluk to collect donations amid this critical situation. 

Crypto donation & Tornado Cash

In 2022, during the Russia vs Ukraine conflict, many people donated crypto assets to the Ukraine government directly despite accepting crypto assets as a donation directly was against the Ukraine’s laws. 

In the same year, The US OFCA agency imposed a ban on popular crypto-mixing platform Tornado Cash. The US authorities noted that Tornado was a helpful tool for the bad actors to process illegal fund transactions.
