The Iranian crypto market is shifting its focus from global exchange platforms to local exchanges. This sudden change is because most centralized exchanges with know-your-customer (KYC) compliance exclude Iranians. Around 83 percent of survey respondents said the community needed more robust access to exchanges in order to grow as shown by the survey conducted by analytics firm Gate Trade. In the meantime, a Gate Trade spokesperson told CoinDesk that many Iranians are using VPNs and purchasing foreign ID cards on the black market to circumnavigate discrimination. According to Jimmy Song a bitcoin developer and educator that the trend is gaining momentum from around the world be it in Asia or the Middle East or in Africa. What Jimmy Song wants is to let bitcoin and other cryptocurrency be used as an medium of exchange and let people accumulate capital and earn money from it.
