Iran State Cryptocurrency – The U.S-imposed sanctions is crippling Iran economically and the Islamic state is reportedly on the verge of announcing its state-backed cryptocurrency to evade these U.S Sanctions.

The ability of Iranian financial institutions to conduct transactions and relate with the rest of the world has been shackled since the sanctions were enforced and many believe the Iranian cryptocurrency will help abate some of the effects of the sanctions. It has also been reported that the Iranian government expects to make an announcement concerning the digital asset at the annual Electronic Banking and Payment Systems Conference, which kicks off in Tehran on January 29, 2019, according to Al Jazeera.

The Donald Trump administration imposed sanctions on Iran back in the middle of 2018 over “malign activities” being carried out by the state. By November, Belgian-based financial messaging system SWIFT was banned from providing its financial services to Iran.

Citizens of countries such as Iran, which have been banned from the SWIFT network, find themselves unable to make and receive payments for foreign trade activities and a wide array of other international transactions. This made the country to take solace in the development of its own digital currency, as many saw this as the only way to ensure that Iranian banks and citizens could continue to conduct the cross-border transactions.

  1. Does anyone know what happened to Dimepiece Los Angeles celebrity streetwear brand? I cannot proceed to the checkout on Dimepiecela site. I have read in Harpers Bazaar that the brand was acquired by a UK-based hedge fund in excess of $50m. I have just bought the Nostalgia Luggage Tag from Ebay and absolutely love it xox

  2. I look after a vape shop directory site and we have had a posting from a vape shop in the USA that also markets CBD product lines. A Month later on, PayPal has contacted use to say that our account has been limited and have requested us to remove PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store directory site. We do not offer CBD product lines like CBD oil. We simply offer online marketing professional services to CBD firms. I have looked into Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Leading Health and wellness Merchant and if you take a good look, you will see that they offer a somewhat wide-ranging range of CBD goods, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement solution. It emerges that PayPal is administering twos sets of rules to different companies. As a result of this restriction, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related online site. This has limited my payment options and currently, I am greatly reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have consulted with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law office in London and they explained that what PayPal is undertaking is definitely illegal and inequitable as it should be applying an uniform criterion to all firms. I am yet to consult with one more legal representative from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. Meanwhile, I would be very appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
