Iran's government officially authorizes cryptocurrency mining

posted 20 days ago
Cryptocurrency mining in Iran is now legal. This follows a Sunday decision by the country’s cabinet to authorize the mining of cryptocurrencies. Now classified as an industrial activity, cryptocurrency miners will be required to acquire licenses from Iran’s Ministry of Industry, Mines and Trade.

The green light from Iran’s cabinet comes about a week since a government committee gave its approval for cryptocurrency mining.
