Unexpectedly: until recently, 70% of Telegram nicknames were reserved by cyberscotters from Iran

Today Pavel Durov announced the appearance of alternative links in Telegram is a logical step before launching a platform for the sale of memorable nicknames through auctions. But Durov also shared some interesting statistics: it turns out that until recently, 70% of Telegram nicknames were reserved by cybersquatters from Iran, a country with severe restrictions on Internet access.

According to Durov, this resulted in a “graveyard of nicknames” that cluttered search results and made it difficult for millions of Telegram users to choose appropriate public addresses for their accounts, groups and channels. Users who wanted to get nicknames reserved in Iran often received no response to their requests or were deceived.

But now the situation has begun to change. In mid-August, all Telegram public addresses associated with channels that had been empty or inactive for the past year were removed. Pavel Durov promises that 99% of these nicknames will be re-introduced into use, but with algorithmic and geolocation restrictions.
