At the 1st Baqytty bala
(a vocal competition for young talented people) in June 2018, the two grand prix winners were awarded prize money and the chance to perform at Dimash’s concerts.
The promoter of this competition is the Creative Centre DimashAli
, of which Dimash’s father Kanat Aitbayev
is the official representative director.
The competition has been developing and transforming since the celebration of the 150th anniversary of Aktobe in 2019.
Now, the introduction gets rather long. The prize money is one million tenge
. How much would it be in Japanese Yen?
Kazakhstan’s currency is the tenge
, which has been changed from the Soviet ruble and used since November 1993
Tenge has a meaning of being equal, balance and a set of scales
Similarly, there are many currencies in the world where the origin of the word came from the Latin libra
(scales), such as pound (UK), lira (Italy), livre (France).
1 tenge теңге = 100 tiyin тиын
1 tenge is approximately 0.3 yen although exchange rates change constantly.
Apparently, the banknotes of tenge received consecutive awards for “Banknote of the Year
” for a few years from the International Bank Note Society, IBNS!

Note 1: Currently (as of 2019) the Japanese yen cannot be exchanged in Kazakhstan. Make sure that you have banknotes in a suitable currency, such as US dollars.
Note 2: Generally tipping is not customary in Kazakhstan. However, it is becoming more common at tourist facilities or when using a taxi.
