I heared BTC is banned in China, Vietnam and Phillipines. Don't know about any others?

China is a strange situation, it is mostly rumors about ban. So regulation is quite uncertain.
Even the business owners like the owner of BTC China does not know exactly.

China has not banned Bitcoins altogether. It has just blocked banks from dealing with Bitcoin-based businesses. There are even two Bitcoin ATMs operating in the mainland China (Beijing and Shanghai). In China, no one will prevent you from buying Bitcoin, if you are using hard cash (rather than bank deposits) for the same.

Official bans are a bit different from governments just making it harder to get them.

i wish to clarify the FUD

it is not banned in ANY country

every country allows bitcoin trades. what each country is announcing is that banks have to issue risk assessment and inform consumers that investments are risky, that they can gain, but also lose.
that unless there is a contract for guaranteed income, investments are not guaranteed. meaning be aware of the risks if you wish to invest in bitcoin.

this is standard banking rules to announce risk assessments. also banks have announced that they themselves will not sell bitcoins to consumers, as they themselves are contracted to only use their native FIAT. this has nothing to do with consumers or businesses trading bitcoins.

and lastly most consumers and businesses do not explain their business plans clearly, do not use the correct type of bank account, and when moving their FIAT around, do not properly follow the FIAT rules. leading to these people becoming a high risk and banks shutting those individual entities down. it is NOT a broad stroke of all bitcoin businesses.

its the individual entities that do not follow the rules and ethics of banking properly that get shut down and then cry like babies blaming the decision to shut their account on bitcoin, rather than their own mis-use of the bank account.

take the exchanges in china for instance. in december none of them had the licences for the telecommunication of money. they were given months to prepare, and still some did not get the licences. the ones still operating now are either using commercial banks away from central banks. or they have now got licences to work with central banks.

I don't believe there are any outright bans in place, though in a number of countries they are making it very difficult to cash in or out of BTC.

...

While not banned here in Peru (on a visit), NO ONE (ex. one guy I met) has heard of them nor uses them.

Pity that.  Buy BTC in USA, use BTC for gold in Peru, smile,,,

EDIT: I do know a guy in the USA who tells me that BTC is getting very popular in Argentina due to their .gov incompetence and interference.

I don't think there is any outright ban.

Just that there isn't any Bitcoin ATM /payment services in that country.
