“A technology brand that pioneers the digital transformation of cities”
Those who are interested in the crypto ecosystem or the people of Izmir may ask, "What is Izmir Token, what is Izmir Token used for?" Noting that questions such as these are commonplace, Barış Turgut said, “Since Izmir Token is a first in the world, it is a project that tokenizes a city for the first time, in other words, divides it into pieces that can be bought and sold in the crypto ecosystem and carries it to the blockchain, it is even more important to explain what it is.
