Iran Bans Crypto-Mining Following Months Of Power Outage
Iranian authorities have accused crypto miners of being the cause of months of power outages in the capital city and other big cities. A recent CNBC survey concluded that there had been an influx of crypto miners into the country following their ban from China.
The authorities also claim that most of the miners have no operating license. The high energy consumption of their mining plants is the cause of the continuous power outages in the area. The country’s president, Hassan Rouhani, announced that the ban takes immediate effect and might be suspended by September 22.
Apart from energy issues, the number of fraudulent crypto transactions in the country has been on the rise recently. Hence, the combination of these two factors is responsible for this crypto ban.
