The main bank in Iran announced a ban on any operations related to crypto-currencies, including bitcoin. The local news agency IRNA writes that banks should avoid buying or selling crypto currency, and also in some way participate in their promotion.
The ban happened against the background of fluctuations in the exchange rate of the national currency – Iranian rial. It is reported that some residents played on the difference in rates between tokens and the currency of the currency. Now they can not do this. A similar situation occurred earlier with the restriction of operations with crypto-currencies in China.
Bitcoin recently makes up for lost time: now the currency is traded around $ 8,800, and in early April it cost less than $ 7,000 per unit.
