A ban on mining is being imposed in Iran

As of June 22, Iran will cut off power supply to mining companies, announced Mostafa Rajabi Mashhadi of the Iranian Ministry of Energy. Now there are 118 cryptocurrency mining companies in the country.

Mashahadi said that last week Iran recorded a record electricity consumption of 62,500 megawatts (MW) at peak time. He added that the current consumption could exceed 63 thousand MW, forcing the government to take extreme measures.

The Iranian government has allowed industrial mining in 2019. Because of cheap electricity, many global companies started mining cryptocurrency in the country. This is a text from sit​e CryptoDeFix. In January 2020, the Ministry of Industry issued more than 1,000 cryptocurrency mining licenses. In 2021, Iran suspended power to farms several times, but then resumed it.
