Turkey’s crypto law is ready for parliament, President Erdoğan confirms
Once implemented, the crypto law will implement a new economic model that can potentially help recover the lira’s falling value.
Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has reportedly confirmed the completion of a crypto law draft that will soon be shared with the Parliament for mainstream implementation in the country.
In an effort to counter the falling value of the Turkish lira, President Erdoğan shared plans to implement a new economic model while speaking at a press conference in Istanbul. As reported by local media NTV, Erdoğan said that the cryptocurrency bill is ready, adding:
“We will take steps on this issue by sending it to Parliament without delay.”
Acknowledging the country’s recent inflationary episode, Erdoğan said that the currency event is not related to mathematics but a matter of process — implying a possibility and potential of lira’s value growth:
“With this understanding, we intend to channel it to a dry spot. But the exchange rate will find its own price on the market.”
With the introduction of the new crypto law, the president envisions Turkey to become one of the 10 largest economies in the world. Speaking about the rising prices in the region, he shared plans to follow the people who change the labels of the price list organizers several times a day. “We want them to lower the dollar’s increases now,” he concluded.

Terra’s Mirror protocol warns community against governance attack
The attacker launched a public poll on Mirror’s official website, which falsely proposes a freeze on the community pool in case of a scam. If executed as planned, the attacker would receive 25 million MIR tokens.
Public blockchain network Terra has confirmed an ongoing scam attack via an official governance poll on Mirror, an in-house synthetic assets protocol.
According to Mirror, the attacker launched a public poll on Mirror’s official website, which proposes a freeze on the community pool in case of a scam.
NEW MIRROR POLL! ALERT: Poll 211 is SCAM — sending 25,000,000 MIR to itself … #vote on 212: https://t.co/FH6RqTbJ2j $MIR $LUNA #terra
— Mirror Polls (@mirror_polls) December 25, 2021
According to Poll ID: 211, named “Freeze the community pool in case of scam”, the scammer proposes an upgrade of safer community governance rules in case of a hack. If the hacker manages to get a positive majority on the poll, 25 million MIR tokens (worth $64.2 million at the time of writing) will be sent to the hacker’s address.
As evidenced by the above screenshot, Mirror’s proactive approach to warn the community has seen a sizable increase in the number of ‘No’ votes — confirming the security of the funds. According to WuBlockchain, the attacker initiated Proposal 185, disguised as a request for cooperation with Solana, effectively trying to defraud 25 million MIR tokens from the community fund pool.
The attacker’s poll will remain publicly available for voting till Jan. 01. However, the Mirror team launched Poll 212 to warn the unwary investors:
“Poll 211 sending 25,000,000 MIR to itself. VOTE NO to any poll sending community funds out.”
