According to Iran Financial Tribune, Tavanir (the country’s power generation agency) will resume bitcoin mining on September 22.

In May, the Iranian government banned bitcoin and cryptocurrency mining operations. The decision was taken to stop miners overloading the country electricity network which is overloaded because of summer heat.

Bitcoin miners were blamed for Iran’s constant blackouts and power scarcity. The significant strain on electricity supply was also caused by illegal crypto mining operations.


With more than 1,000 licenses issued in January 2020, Iran legalized Bitcoin mining in 2020. As Iran continues to promote cryptocurrency mining, 30 crypto mining licenses were granted by the Iran Ministry of Commerce in June.

According to The Financial Tribune, Tavanir anticipates that electricity usage will decrease in the coming month so legal cryptocurrency miner can continue their operations.
