- Blockchain Forum: Shoprak’s dealings with businesses that do not have this material will cause the dissatisfaction of 5 million users in the field of digital currencies.
Following the publication of Shoprak’s announcement that the payment gateway of businesses without Inmad will be deactivated from November 24, the Iranian Blockchain Association in a statement objected to this decision of Shoprak and explained its destructive consequences.
According to Erzdigital, the statement of the Blockchain Association states:
On the other hand, Shaperak has stated in a letter addressed to the payers that within the framework of the relevant laws and regulations, providing a virtual payment portal to online businesses by the payment companies and payers is only possible for the owners of this product, and that no action has been taken to grant this product to cryptocurrency businesses. This product itself has never been effective for its intended purpose.
In response to some opinions about the impact of the activities of digital currency exchanges on the country’s currency market, the Blockchain Association of Iran has said:
It is wrong to search for the factors of devaluation of the national currency and its connection to the field of exchange, because the transparent exchange volume of the exchange platforms shows its partial effect on the country’s economy, and on the other hand, restrictions on withdrawals from them have been implemented for some time. Cryptocurrency businesses, despite all the ruthlessness, did their best to protect users’ rights and prevent violations, and even with a dedicated tariff line, they are also busy paying taxes transparently.
The experts of the Blockchain Association are concerned with the large outflow of assets to foreign platforms and the increasing risk of blocking billions of dollars from the capital of Iranian users and cutting off the government’s tax revenue from this area, the boom in the underground market of cryptocurrency exchange and leaving the control circuit of healthy businesses, and as a result, increasing crimes and frauds. This area and the creation of a wave of dissatisfaction in 5 million active users of this area, the complete destruction of businesses in the field of cryptocurrency exchange due to the lack of standard financial circulation tools and the loss of the capacity and opportunities of this area in the field of employment of working human forces and the departure of elites and the migration of businesses in the area of exchange to Foreign countries have been introduced as the harmful consequences of requiring this item to be used in payment gateways.
