Correction on burning the Iranian central bank
Nov 20, 2019
Reports of protestors burning down the Central Bank of Iran spread across news outlets on Sunday. The news was met with largely positive responses, particularly among Bitcoin maximalists and gold enthusiasts.
However, after further research, it became apparent that the bank being burned was actually a branch of Bank Melli, a smaller regional bank. The confusion was due to the original reporting, and a general lack of awareness about Iranian infrastructure.
