Rant. We are normal people. We have no criminal record. We just want to lead normal lives.
A simple money transfer has taken over 20 days, and when finally sent it was rejected as Iranians cannot have a USD account.
No, more like I can’t transfer USD using *banks*.
It took 20 days. Unfortunately, my father ended up taking a risk, flew out of the country and physically brought USD cash into Turkey.
What could have been done in less than an hour using a crypto exchange ended up taking 23 Days and a lot of unnecessary risk.
Unless you’re from a select group of very *special* countries you don’t know what it’s like to have something like crypto in your life. The sheer difficulty to send 100KUSD almost had us losing out on a property deal.
Point to note: We HAD to send USD as Turkey needs to see *only* USD being exchanged to Turkish Lira for foreign property purchases.
My father does not understand crypto and wouldn’t listen to me and frankly even id be cautious.
It should not be this difficult, but it is. Just made me appreciate what a blessing it is to be able to do a simple transfer that easily.
