The 2024 Turkish Presidential Annual Program, recently published, aims to establish clear cryptocurrency regulations by the end of the year.

This initiative follows a significant 2023 legal case involving a Turkish crypto exchange CEO. Turkey's interest in cryptocurrencies surged in 2021 amid an inflation crisis, and the country continues to explore digital currency options.

In the United States, Google Trends data reveals a 250% increase in searches for "should I buy Bitcoin now?" while more specific queries like "can I buy Bitcoin on Fidelity?" spiked by over 3,100% in the past week. On a global scale, the search term "Is it a good time to buy Bitcoin?" saw a 110% rise. 

Notably, interest in the "BlackRock Bitcoin ETF" surged by 250%, indicating a broader curiosity about BlackRock's pending Bitcoin ETF. This heightened interest coincides with Bitcoin's rapid price increase, briefly exceeding $35,000 on Oct. 24.

The Bloomberg Billionaires Index has cut Binance founder Changpeng Zhao's (CZ) estimated net worth by a staggering $11.9 billion, reducing it to $17.2 billion, following a 38% drop in Binance's earnings due to declining trading volumes. This decline is linked to events involving CZ and Sam Bankman-Fried, who is currently facing a fraud trial. CZ's involvement in a token liquidation related to FTX triggered a wave of withdrawals and FTX's bankruptcy. Binance has also faced regulatory challenges, including legal action by authorities like the SEC and CFTC. As a result, CZ's fortunes have taken a significant hit.
