Cankaya University, one of Turkey’s top institutions, held a metaverse party on April 10, the first such party for an educational institution in the country. The party was held in partnership with Radio Caca (RACA) within the United States of Mars (USM) metaverse.
“Thank you to everyone who attended our Dance in Metaverse event, the first of which was held at USM. We had a lot of fun,” the university said on Twitter.
Radio Caca reported that its metaverse is open to all institutions wishing to hold events in the metaverse and invited all educational institutions to co-create the web 3.0 community, “Be there or be square (because you’re not a-round),” declared Radio Caca.

Radio Caca also held, on March 26, the first significant meeting of universities in Turkey to present all the possibilities of the metaverse and Web3.0 that will be the great engines of a new revolution, not only on the internet but also in the organization and interaction of society.
The meeting brought together more than 100 students from some of Turkey’s leading universities, such as ODTÜ, BİLKENT, HACETTEPE, GAZİ, ÇANKAYA, and ULUDAĞ. Students had the opportunity to immerse themselves in new technologies that will shape society in the near future and are part of the entire Radio Caca ecosystem, such as metaverse, Web3, DAO, NFTs, and Decentralised Finance, among others.
The immersion program between the universities and Radio Caca was divided into two phases, the first being held in March and the second that will be held in the second semester. Participants had more than 5 hours of immersion in the Radio Caca ecosystem in this first phase. They learned about Radio Caca’s ecosystem in the first half and participated in an AMA. In the second half, the blockchain communities of universities presented their vision and what they could do together with Radio Caca.

The Radio Caca Turkey Team said:
“This event is very valuable as it is the first blockchain event to bring together university communities under a metaverse project in Turkey and present the concepts and tools that will help shape the society of the future and that are part of the Radio Caca ecosystem.”
Recently, Radio Caca, Istanbul Technical University (ITU) Blockchain, and Middle East Technical University (METU) Blockchain have reached a strategic cooperation to hold NFT exhibitions, seminars, ceremonies, and other activities on Radio Caca’s United States of Mars (USM) Metaverse land to jointly build a pluralistic 3D virtual world.
The cooperation with the blockchain associations of these two universities will open a new chapter for Radio Caca. Thanks to the cryptocurrency enthusiasm of the Turks and the front-page coverage on the USM Metaverse by a famous local media outlet, people in the country are excited and have started paying close attention to Radio Caca.
Turkey is one of the nations that have been leading the adoption and expansion of actions in the metaverse and Web3. Recently, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has ordered his ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Parti in Turkish) to research the emerging utility of blockchain technology and metaverse applications.
President Erdoğan said that the study should also cover other key issues such as cryptocurrencies and social media and proposed that an online forum be organized in which he would participate.
Regarding the metaverse, the president told AKP officials:
“This is a delicate matter and should be looked at thoroughly.”
Turkey’s ruling party, the AK Party, held its first meeting in the metaverse on Monday, January 17.
