Safe Internet Usage For Farsi Speakers
Global sanctions and internet censorship for Persian-speaking blockchain activists.The Persian blockchain and crypto community has been going through difficult times lately.Persian-speaking blockchain activists haven’t accessed training courses, the community is now in dire straits, along with disruptions to global networks and strict internet censorship in Iran.Global sanctions and internet censorship in countries such as Iran and Afghanistan have not only deprived activists of up-to-date blockchain and Web3 knowledge in these countries, but have further isolated them and prevented them from communicating with global experts.The risk of being arrested and imprisoned Persian-speaking activists in this field. They have been repeatedly accused of conducting dubious economic activities due to the Iranian government's ignorance of cryptocurrencies, so the risk of being arrested and imprisoned also threatens them.Such a circumstance has constrained active members of the community to emigrate or cease their activities. Also, it must be noted that immigration is a very complicated task for most individuals, due to the low monetary value and low validity of the passport.What had we done?
