Q: Who in his right mind would sell a nontrivial amount of Bitcoin for Iranian currency.
A: No one.


A2: Anybody who was in Iran and needed the Dinars to spend on goods and services there.

Iranians should run VPN services for Bitcoins, so we can all get Iranian IP addresses to run Bitcoin nodes on.
Then the Iranian Bitcoin scene will look much bigger than it is - and some Journalist will hype it.. and then..    I dunno.. we all get thrown in jail or something.


I would get an Iranian VPN as long as I could connect to a second vpn through the Iranian one to avoid the censorship.  I would trust the Iranian VPN provider to not hand over my data to the US government more than anyone else.

That's an aspect I hadn't considered.
In all seriousness - selling of digital services seems the most viable way for Iranians to earn BTC at this point. 
I imagine it'd be hard to get FPGA or ASIC mining gear into Iran... and if there are any GPU miners there, they're surely not going to get much from now on anyway.

I think that we should lobby for Bitinstant to get cash deposits in Iran.

I don't know where to post this question, and may be the Discussion is the best place for it.

The news has spread the rumors that the Iran people are trying to buy food and other goods by paying Bitcoin, since the U.S. embargoed Iran and frozen the bank account and wiring methods of Iran. I have a friend are doing regular business with Iran customers, and the Iran customers have to wire their money to Dubai first and then wire it to China. The fee is very expensive and my friend has to wait the money for a long time. My friend want to persuade the Iran customers to pay with Bitcoin. Then here is the question:

How Iran people can get some bitcoin if he cannot mine it?



A new Iranian Bitcoin website has been established which is include WIKI and Forum both .

here is the address:  http://poolfa.com/blog

I think it's going to grow there too Cheesy

As I heard they fix the transaction for Iran's currency too

As soon as an Iranian VPN accepts bitcoin, I'm signing up.

I think the bigger question is how to tell Americans to accept US dollars cash in an envelope? Iran is well served by the Hawala network. They take rials from your doorstep and deliver cash to whomever you want anywhere in the world.

And FYI Iranian rials are widely used in Afghanistan and for cross border trade in Pakistan. So you guys are completely wrong that no one accepts Iranian currency.

I also would buy Iranian VPN for bitcoins straight away.

Anyway Bitcoins would not hurt Iranian people or government. If they are serious about breaking the western world banking scam, they will need to officially recognize Bitcoin as a valid alternative money to Rial and precious metals. They must look at how western banksters are feeling uneasy about Bitcoin, especially USA. But many computer guys don't understand and grossly misunderstand what Bitcoin is and how it functions, could decision makers in IR leadership understand Bitcoin?

P.S. USA will not bomb Iran because of BTC or any other reason. Iran have more powerful military than Iraq, Afganistan and Libya had together. It would be like crazy attack upon Russia or India (except the nukes). And the precious cancerous tumor occupying Palestine will perish as a result. And oil will stop coming from that region for years. And there would be tens of thousands new al-qaeda members as a result of this injustice.

Just tell them this.

شما باید Bitcoin اخبار به خرید محصولات و مسیر ما آنها را از طریق عربستان سعودی است.

But in all seriousness,  the only solution is to network.

Your customers would have to have access to local forums, so they can find people  that have bitcoins for sale.
There are many people bypassing the system through their arab neighbours as long as they have opened up the channels to stream in and out currency then it is only a matter of convincing them to begin exchanging bitcoins, it is not an easy answer though, it is a hard one, considering that sending payments inside the country is a problem.

You could always open up a store that accepts bitcoins to ship to countries that have no barriers to exchange with you; You provide a software/goods/services online and ship them, then you can exchange locally with people who want bitcoins, having two businesses is better than just one.

Transcendental awakening is a process of arduous self-discovery, very much like this grand experiment we are embarking on.

Maybe Mtgox can consider another exchange BTC/Barrels of Oil, I think this will be more interesting for Iranians and Oil producing countries Smiley

There are iranian proxies, if you are interested to see how the internet looks from within the embargoed mullah state. Most Iranians surf on external proxies to precisely not see this shit.

That's not an issue, all of them are using VPN already , otherwise can't open anything Cheesy

I'm looking to find a way to support them get popular .
