Equipment previously seized from Iranian miners is returned to the owners
The Iranian state energy company Tavanir is working on proposals for using mining equipment without damaging the energy network. The work is being carried out on behalf of the government.
As of early 2023, more than 150 thousand devices have been confiscated in the country, and more than 7 thousand mining farms have been closed. All these activities were carried out as part of the fight against the illegal mining of cryptocurrencies. According to the Iranian media, citing an official of the agency for the collection and sale of state property (OCSSOP), which dealt with the storage of seized equipment, are developing proposals to optimize the load on the power grid. In addition, the return of the devices to their owners has begun.
According to the regulators, the new rules will require miners to obtain a license, as well as special permission to import energy. Miners will use export tariffs, and the equipment will need approval from the Organization for Standardization of Iran.
