The TRY gateway is now integrated within the lite client, enabling users to trade Waves tokens directly against the currency.
Thanks to the size and enthusiasm of our Turkish community, Waves has now opened a gateway for Turkish Lira (TRY), in partnership with Digilira.com. As with all of the existing Waves gateways, fiat tokens are backed 1:1 with the currency, so every WTRY token issued and traded in the lite client can be redeemed for one lira through the gateway.
Fast, low-cost, convenient
Although Turkey has several bitcoin exchanges and a thriving cryptocurrency scene, it is awkward and time-consuming to trade altcoins against the lira. Via their partnership with Waves, Digilira will enable the Turkish community to buy and sell a broad range of tokens — including WAVES, BTC, ETH, LTC, ZCASH and other Waves tokens — for WTRY.
To get started, simply visit Digilira.com and create an account, which can then be linked with a Waves address. It is then a fast and straightforward process to deposit Turkish Lira via one of Digilira’s bank accounts and receive WTRY in return. The WTRY will appear in your Waves account and can immediately be used in the lite client, including trading them against any Waves token on the DEX. Withdrawal is similarly fast and painless, with Digilira sending TRY directly to your bank account when the corresponding amount of WTRY are sent to the withdrawal address.
We hope this new gateway will prove useful to our growing Turkish community, and look forward to seeing Waves become more and more established in the country!
