I've been posting about bitcoin in Iran before.
It's really a pain to even download the standard client as sourceforge denies requests from Iran (This is not the Mullahs being bad, this is sourceforge embargo of Bitcoin users (aka "us") in Iran. Many other sides enforce the embargo for open source, too).
It is a pain to get informed as 99% (really 99%) of the people there don't know any English so all the basic information should be translated to reach out to such countries.
There should be need as the inflation is horrible there.
There are no exchanges for IRR obviously.
Is there a project already of any kind that lists our reach for regions and languages? Like a checklist per country of availability of local(ized):
information (like bitcoin.org or this forum)
client (web, full node, mobile)
exchange (local, doing business in the local currency or being reachable through local payment providers)
BTC business (locals actually running some kind of btc business)
I know that at traviangames.com the huge success came with internationalization. The game was available in German and English and those markets were totally saturated with games. The Arab version rocked though as there was not much of competition. I could imagine that the western world is pretty saturated with financial online services, too and reaching out to more exotic languages could boost bitcoin.
Lastly to get BTC to for example Iran there needs to be something to sell from these countries. IRR are not really useful for anything outside of Iran so Iran would have to export something else in exchange for in-flowing BTC. I can only encourage all of us to keep mentioning bitcoin to all that want to sell stuff online. I told Mohammad Rafigh
about this new way to sell his music outside of Iran and he's trying it out now via coinDL. I love this album
and hope for more soon and I'm sure if it works for him, he will spread the word and people like him wanting to get fiat for their BTC will try to sell locally, … well … you know what I'm trying to say. Stop getting too excited about yet another clone of an existing service opening up for explored territories and reach out for the white spots of bitcoin-land
