The Central Bank of Iran is likely to lift the ban on cryptocurrencies and by the end of September to create legislation to regulate them. This is reported by Financial Tribune.
The first concerns the prevalent global cryptocurrencies. The High Council of Anti-Money Laundering has imposed a ban in light of concerns over global allegations of money laundering and financing of terrorism. But it seems that after the government's consideration, this blanket ban will be reviewed.

In April, the Central Bank of Iran, guided by the ideas of combating money laundering, introduced a ban on trade in cryptocurrencies. In addition, this decision reflected the need to limit the possible use of digital tokens to support terrorist activities and perform other tasks related to the lack of appropriate regulation. However, this ban had only a temporary effect - soon the cryptoexchanges resumed operations, in connection with which the Central Bank again thought about the regulation of digital assets.
