No Telegram Crypto for Iranians

Telegram has announced that Iranian citizens will not be allowed to take part in Telegram Open Network initial coin offerings and will be prohibited from buying Gram cryptocurrency by the official Telegram group investor, Russian news agency RBC reported.  As per the ban, people on the sanctions list of the US, the UK, European Union or United Nations are also barred from participating in the program. In fact, the ban applies to all people living in sanctioned territories. The document points out that such territories are now the following: the Crimean Peninsula, Cuba, Iran, the Democratic People’s’ Republic of Korea and Syria. In early January, TechCrunch reported Telegram’s plans to launch its own blockchain: the Telegram Open Network platform and Gram, its homegrown cryptocurrency. Telegram has some 40 million Iranians among its subscribers. Iran is also planning to launch its own national virtual currency.
