What is Ethereum?
Ethereum was introduced in 2015 by a Russian-Canadian programmer Vitaly ‘Vitalik’ Buterin. It is an open-source platform that utilises blockchain technology to create and execute distributed applications (DApps). Users can create or join so-called ‘smart contracts’ directly without third parties, limiting the possibility for fraud.
Ethereum is commonly used as a name of the associated cryptocurrency but in fact, Ethereum is the system or network while Ether or ETH is the native currency. Users need to have Ether when they want to execute a certain transaction through the system.

What is the Turkish Lira (TRY)?
Turkish lira or TRY is the official currency of the Republic of Turkey and it was set as the primary currency in 1844. The stability of TRY is under the governance of the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey, which defines and implements the country's monetary policy. The Turkish lira has gone through major crises in the past. The lira as we know it today was defined in 2005 and it has been of particular interest for traders ever since.
What affects TRY’s value?
One of the characteristics which make this currency interesting is the geographical position of the country itself. The majority of Turkish land is located in Asia, whereas a minor portion is positioned in Europe. Due to its location, it has developed close relationships with countries from the two continents. Accordingly, the currency (as well as the ETH/TRY) can be directly affected by political and economic actions occurring at either of the continents.
Turkey is also a major exporter of goods worldwide and any event which can have a positive or negative effect on the Turkish exports will affect the TRY and accordingly change the ETH to TRY value.
Also, a decrease in tourism can impact the fiat currency because this sector has crucial importance in the Turkish economy. Changes in the level of investment activities is yet another aspect which should be considered by traders when analysing the Ethereum to TRY or any other pair related to TRY. In general, traders should monitor the domestic and external factors which influence the currency. Examples of events that indirectly impacted the TRY value in the past are the terrorist’s attacks, the influx of refugees in Turkey, political confrontation with the EU or Russia and so on. As you can see, Bitcoin to Turkish lira value can be affected by a variety of things coming directly from two continents and from other markets.
