Over the past six months, the Iranian Ministry of Industry has issued more than 1000 cryptocurrency mining licenses. This was announced by Amir Hossein Saeedi Naeini, representative of the ICT Guild Organization.

According to him, cryptocurrency mining is a new industry that attracts many in Iran. He noted that miners must obtain a license to work.

The Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade has issued more than 1,000 licenses for cryptocurrency mining in the country. Our studies show that the crypto mining industry has the potential to add $8.5 billion to the economy.

 He believes that the cryptocurrency industry can help Iran's economy. However, he explained that the high cost of electricity is a serious problem for cryptocurrency miners.

High electricity tariffs plus stringent regulations have made the sector less appealing for small investors.

 He expressed the opinion that “the operating conditions in this industry should not be such that only large capitalists enter the cryptocurrency mining market but that all miners can operate.” He emphasized that changing electricity tariffs could stimulate the mining industry to generate more revenue.
