Iran Proposes Annual Registration for Cryptocurrency Miners

The Iranian government is considering a proposal to register digital currency miners on a year-to-year basis.

As per records revealed by Coindesk on September 19, a draft proposal to enlist cryptocurrency mining operations is presently on its way to official endorsement in Tehran. The proposed licenses would need data on work, lease agreements, and different business activities.

The prerequisites appear to be intended to enable the Iranian government to curtail upsetting exercises identified with cryptocurrencies while proceeding to benefit from an industry flourishing in a nation confronting global sanctions and inflation — economic factors that have resulted to an ascent in national wretchedness.

Recent months have seen a lot of uproars encompassing the Iranian government’s frame of mind towards digital currency within its borders.

In June, Iran’s Ministry of Energy said that they would slice off power to mining operations utilizing the nation’s subsidized energy grid until special pricing became effective. After a month, that special pricing had finality, with miners expected to pay $0.07 per kilowatt-hour, as opposed to $0.05 for most citizens.

Iran later approved mining as industrial activity in July. Although the Iranian cabinet dismissed the utilization of digital currencies in transactions toward the start of August, Iran’s National Tax Administration agreed to exclude repatriated crypto mining income from tax taxation a week ago.
