The Turkish central bank is planning on launching its digital currency next year.
“The Digital Turkish Lira system will be integrated with digital identity and FAST,” the official report stated. FAST is a payment system operated by the Turkish central bank.

And so, proving that the difference between a conspiracy theory and reality is about 12 months because what was called a crazy conspiracy theory last year, is now becoming a reality – a CBDC that is tied to your digital ID.
With a CBDC it becomes really easy for the state to stop dissidents from buying or selling. This is all about total control.
And consider that Turkey has had a very high inflation rate recently, and now they are announcing digital currency, which could provide an excellent opportunity for a kind of “reset.”
We are seeing high inflation in many Western countries now. I imagine a digital currency will be introduced with the excuse of preventing any further economic troubles. A reset of the global economy if you will. Maybe a “Great Reset.”
We already know that the European Union is working on a digital euro with none other than Amazon.
[Note: According to Investor Place, the EU isn’t the first government trialling a CBDC. Multiple Caribbean nations, as well as Nigeria, have completely rolled out CBDCs for all citizens. China has been trialling its digital yuan for months now and caught worldwide attention for it when it brought that test to the 2022 Winter Olympics. And this past week, both Iran and Russia started their own CBDC tests, with plans to get a final product out in the next year.]
My next prediction is that we will get personal carbon trackers to track all the carbon dioxide (“C02”) you are emitting with your digital currency purchases. This is already happening to some degree, many banks have started tracking the C02 emissions from your purchases, and in Sweden, we already have a credit card that blocks you if you exceed your C02 limit.

Things are happening fast, and CBDCs and digital IDs are the next big thing they will be pushing.
Another thing to keep in mind, a digital currency could be programmed to only be spent on the things that the state wants you to spend it on. Obviously, they will claim to be doing it to “save the economy.” The possibilities for control and tyranny are endless.
