该国拥有货币价值的大幅波动的历史，通货膨胀一词只是另一个星期二。或星期四就像上周,国家看到了气球just shy of 50 percent, a figure that hasn’t been on the books in over twenty years.
So you’d be forgiven for the knee-jerk reaction of wondering who’s got money to invest, but it’s exactly this economic situation that has the potential to propel米达斯到奥林巴斯的峰值。或Styx河的深渊。
One way to combat the volatility, or arguably, contribute to the instability, is to bank a portion of earnings in a foreign currency, an action that more than half the country takes part in. Whereas foreign markets may view Dollars as a currency to be traded and gold, a commodity, on the Turkish markets, these items are seen as investments, or, insurance of the value of their money.
That’s not to say that Midas is the first in Turkey to ever offer such a service, but the startup is the first in the region to do so without charging an arm and a leg to make a trade, a factor that has been cost-prohibitive to many for long. With banks typically charging $15 to $25 per trade, Midas is spinning gold through dramatically lower fees. The firm currently places a $1.50 per transaction cost on the deal, but plans are afoot to reduce this number to zero in the future.
“We started Midas to change people’s relationship with money, for the better. The current environment in Turkey makes spending your money easy, but investing it, rather difficult. By building the most seamless investing experience, we are making investing effortless, as it should be,” says Midas CEO and founderEgem Eraslan。
Whatever your view on Spanish philosopherGeorge Santayana’s statement, “Those who fail to learn from the mistakes of their predecessors are destined to repeat them,” it would seem that the statement has struck a chord with Eraslan and Co. as not only are they on a mission to reshape a historically rocky economic landscape, through additional services, they’re also ramping up efforts to educate the masses. And not with some staid financial papers, but through mediums they interact with on a daily basis.
米达斯has garnered a total of $12 million only 8 months since inception, a clear indicator that lead investors火花资本and早鸟数字东基金和参与者奈杰尔·莫里斯（Nigel Morris）， 和Revo Capital还愿意不仅支持米达斯公司，而且还愿意支持土耳其国家。
