Sanctions can't quell the appetite for #bitcoin in Iran. As exchanges shut Iranians out, mining ramps up. 💪

Maybe because they want to keep all the faith and also the trust of their traders, because the often issue of some cryptocurrency exchange is hacking and scamming and it can be result as ranting and spreading the bad news of their traders. But all in all this is the best move of Binance.
Honestly I really want too, I would have to charge a premium in order to afford the flights out there and the opendime. Also I don't know if police or the government would be too happy with me doing that so legal complications might abound, then I have the problem of finding people who are willing to pay a 5 to 10% premium on the bitcoin. Then I'd have to exchange the local currency that I was paid in back into USD before I leave, I believe you cant fly with more than 10grand of currency. So it would take some work.
I am a crypto-lover from Iran, I believe in the idea of cryptocurrencies. These days, the US government is pushing for new sanctions against my country and nation. Therefore, most of the crypto exchanges like Binance freeze our assets or ban our accounts. Please support the Iranian crypto community for financial freedom, because that is our legal right. We should support each other to advance cryptocurrencies in the future.
Yeah, we can, of course, but as I said: " when you talk about crypto you should let people have multi-choices and alternative option to access to their assets. " and decentralized exchange have some problem like liquidity and low volume and etc.
Of course, please share your thoughts about that with others, all people in these market are connected, we are people, when we talk about decentralized or liquidity or network actually we are talking about people and freedom without borders and government's, Please write about this. Let people think and talk about this.
· that would be great if you send a link of your article to me.
You guys in places where crypto is most needed must not use fancy toys like Binance or Bitmex. Those toys can only work when centralization isn't *actually* an issue.
Focus on the basics, get the P2P volume up.
OTC exchanges are harder to crack down on. Loosely connected exchanges where people meet up on forums or whatsapp groups. Are chatting apps like these operational in your country? You should learn from the chinese example. Their government cracked down on established web based exchanges so trading went underground. It's conducted via chat apps or so we hear.
No amount of community pressure can force Binance, Bitmex, the US or Iranian governments to do things they don't wan't to do.
The Chinese and Indians didn't get back into crypto post-ban through petitions, they did so by going underground.
